  • 4 day Retreat - Spiritual Dimension, Sitting together in Ceremony.

“A human life must also have a spiritual dimension. Without a spiritual dimension, we will not have the capacity to confront suffering, to transform suffering and to offer anything to life. A person without a spiritual path is a person walking in darkness. With a path, we are no longer afraid or worried”. Thich Nhat Hanh

Stop & Bow, The Fire sharing its light. Stop & Allow, Ix Cacao, a path back to the heart, and The Breath, teacher of all teachers, breathing us In and Out, Deep and Slow… With Calm and at Ease, we Smile and Release. During this four day retreat we will sit together in ceremony; We will share: Fire Ceremony, Ix Cacao Ceremony and Breath Wave. This different ceremonies will support our willingness to dive into the inner realms allowing us to deepen the connection with our true, radiant self.

7 day Retreat: “ Being Fresh, Being Alive.”

“There are two things: to be and to do. Don’t think too much about to do—to be is first. To be peace. To be joy. To be happiness. And then to do joy, to do happiness—on the basis of being. So first you have to focus on the practice of being. Being fresh. Being peaceful. Being attentive. Being generous. Being compassionate. This is the basic practice. It’s like sitting at the foot of a tree. The tree does not do anything, but the tree is Fresh and Alive. When you are like that tree, sending out waves of freshness, you help to calm down the suffering in the other person”. Thich Naht Hanh.

During this seven day retreat we will sit together in Ceremony as well (Fire, Ix Cacao and Breathing). We will connect deeper with the Land we are in where our Cacao trees grow, we will share with you what we have learned and experienced about Sprouting and growing IxCacao trees, fermenting IxCacao seeds, roasting IxCacao beans and making Ceremonial grade paste to drink! … and as we love so much chocolates and Gustavo makes amazing ones, we will share with you The Cacao Experience from Bean to Bar, where we will show you how we make small-batch chocolate!. We will also share with you Mindfulness practices and the Introduction to The Natural Time of the Earth.

Note: This can vary depending on the interest and the flow of our energy together.

IxCacao Ceremony, July 2016, Mill Valley CA,

  • 13 day Retreat: “IxCacao, a language of its own, a secret language ”.

During this thirteen day retreat we will share with you our personal journey, practices and ceremonies. Our time together will invite you to Stop and be more present for yourself: What am i feeling?, How does it feel? Where am i feeling it?.

Through Breath work and Self Care we will allow the nervous system to relax, for us to trust in the perfection of all and let go what is ready to be transmuted and returned to the source of its origins to be heal to completion.

We will practice stillness and silence and we will ground in the Earth, our Divine Mother, by connecting with IxCacao tree, flower and fruit; We will learn how to ferment, roast, grind and make a Ceremonial Paste. We will share also our experience as IxCacao ceremonialists from two different streams: The Ancestral Ceremonies of the Maya K’ich’e and The New Beam channeled by The Cacao Shaman.

We will share our journey of more than 8 years with IxCacao as a personal practice and leading group ceremonies, this has been a strong practice that has transformed us in ways we never thought. We will also share how IxCacao supports personal inner journey, relationships and communities.

Note: This can vary depending on the interest and the flow of our energy together.

Our intention: We want to share our heart, our presence, our practice and our retreat place with you. We want to Love our selves even more through the reflection we receive from others. In a natural and effortless flow, we will offer you our authentic self and we will give you the best we can, to the extend of our ability. Thank you for trusting and for allowing us to keep actualizing ourselves. We surrender and we allow the light of existence to flow through us and be used to serve you the way you need. We honor and empower you to be who you are. We salute the power and the unlimited potential in you. 

Some Background: With more than eight years walking with IxCacao and facilitating ceremonies, we have many stories to tell, you might have heard some along the way. We have seen our own transformation and healing as individuals and also as a couple, a lot of layers have been transformed and some others still waiting to be loved… We believe that Love is the answer... The dedication and attention we give to it, is our own choice.

The Sacred Fire and Ix Cacao remind us in a gentle, yet deep way our ability to open our hearts and minds to the light and luminous being we already are. The practice allows us to to release, transform and grow from our own experiences, we are grateful for what we have received from our elders/teachers and for all we have gone through. 

A daily practice is key for us, ( Breath Wave, Mindful Movements, Restorative Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation and The Law of Time), as well as the commitment of being 100% responsible of our own projections; The joy of walking together as a couple, also nurtures, nourishes and inspires us and others to continue shining.

We invite you to explore with us a personal and collective path of healing and self-realization . We will share what we have learned in a clear and loving way, with respect, gratitude and reciprocity.  May our time together bring blessings to all creatures on the Earth and beyond.
