We acknowledge the sacred and divine nature of Cacao as plant medicine and the spiritual stature that has been long attributed to it by Mayan people past and present.
The Cacao Club is built on Three Pillars
Honouring, Acknowledging and Giving Back to the indigenous communities whom this knowledge wisdom was founded. We honour the history of Cacao by sharing this sacred knowledge with our community whilst ensuring that everything we do is done so with authenticity and integrity.
We believe that there is no separation from us and the earth. Without our home and health there is no life, no growth and no healing.
We employ environmentally sustainable practices to create our products keeping both our planet and bodies healthy. From the ingredients we use to our process, it is important that each step is done with our planet as a priority.
We are all on a unique journey, all at different stages of awakening. By speaking openly and honestly about our processes and priorities as a business, allows us to grow, evolve and show up for our planet and people in a way that creates lasting change.
Supporting Our Farmers
We pay a premium on our beans to ensure the sustainable cultivation of Cacao from jungle to cup. We are deeply invested with Fedecovera, one of Guatemala’s leading reforestation organisations. Using modern agricultural practices that respect human dignity & biodiversity, they proudly fulfil their mission to provide a way for farmers to improve their living conditions while honouring and protecting their culture and ecosystem.
Cacao farms in an agroforestry system can help to counter global warming by planting even more trees - this is what we are all about! Working closely with these organisations has given us the opportunity to contribute to the empowerment of women in business, health, education and reforestation in Guatemala.
Supporting Indigenous Wisdom
We have also implemented a reciprocity program that donates 10% of all Cacao sales (before profit) to two organisations that are supporting the preservation of indigenous wisdom and ancient heritage.
5% of all disc sales go to The Mayan Wisdom Project, an indigenous owned and led organisation dedicated to preserving and sharing ancient knowledge.
5% of our disc sales go to Common Ground, a First Nations-led not-for-profit working to strengthen and amplify indigenous Australian culture whilst educating all people about the value of this knowledge.
Passing the Mic
We believe that spiritual and energetic properties of Cacao have the power to transform lives. There are so many layers to what makes this medicine such an important tool for healing and awakening.
Working with cacao is an incredible opportunity and one that we highly recommend. There are many cacao training courses out there all with their own unique perspective on this medicine.
Instead of creating our own cacao course, we believe that this sacred knowledge is best shared by the indigenous communities who have worked with this medicine for thousands of years.
We support The Mayan Wisdom Project, an indigenous led organisation that supports the traditional wisdom keepers of these traditions.
This 9-week Cacao Training Program puts a great focus on authenticity and honouring the ways of the millenary civilisation behind it. Which is why, it is led by 100% Mayan indigenous teachers - spiritual leaders, history experts, nutritionists, cacao farmers, and producers.
