About the experience

Hi Friend


Thank you for taking the time to inquire about The Cacao Ceremonies Space Holders Training.

This training is an invitation for those who are on a path of expansion and service and who love cacao.

We welcome you to learn and experience how to serve cacao in sacred ceremony and activate the Cacao's offerings with your intentions and presence.

The spirit of cacao is calling you to hear her story and feel her spirit.
You are invited to a journey into your heart and into the heart of this sacred plant medicine. 

The training includes: 


Cacao Ceremonies

A Cacao Ceremony is an opportunity to connect to your higher self and to others in a sacred and safe space, to release energetic blockages, to open your heart, to receive insights and mental clarity, invite gratitude and help bring your awareness to the present moment.

Shall you join, you would experience many ways of sharing the Cacao, learn how to hold space and how to activate the Cacao offerings.

You would gain a range of ceremonial tools that you could take with you into your own Cacao journey.

My relation
ship with cacao is very deep and full of love and passion. I'm a professional nature guide and herbalist for the last five years while working with cacao trees and fermentation from the seed to the ceremony. My journey with cacao began six years ago on this volcanic island called Ometepe. A mystical island full of stories, myths, and magical creatures of all kinds. I'm looking forward, with an open heart, to share this magic with you.


Lara Joy

Leadership Trainer 
♡Chocolatier & Cacao Ambassadora
♡Kung Fu Practitioner

I had my first Real Cacao in 2002, when I first got to Central America.

Ever since, cacao has been an ally and a teacher, taking me on many adventures all around the world, as a student, explorer and even producer.

All along I was serving the Cacao to myself and everyone around me, and gained a lot of experience in holding an intentional space for the Cacao.


I have lived in Ometepe, Nicaragua since 2016, and in my professional life I am a leadership trainer and mentor, Maesta De Bien Estar (teacher of Well Being) as well as a Chocolatier.


Kung Fu is my path since 2004, and I’m blessed to have amazing teachers that support my path of growth and encourage me to share what I can.  


Holding this training together with Adelina and Justin - my close friends and neighbors, in Pital, is a vision that I am nourishing for a long time, and now is unfolding with a lot of joy and excitement.


♡ Body Alignment Instructor
  Yoga and Acro yoga Teacher
  Community Builder 

I discovered ceremonial cacao drinking when I first came to Ometepe back in 2019. It quickly became the favorite part of my daily ritual, the heart of our community gatherings and basically a big part of life here in Ometepe. 


I'm passionate about movement, bodywork, self work, team work, authentic expression, community and living life as a ceremony. I am deeply grateful to the medicine of cacao for being an amazing ally and transformational catalizator in all that I do. I see Cacao as a spaceholder by its self and combined with any other intentional practice - it creates magic.


This training is part of the adventure that me and my close friends and family Lara Joy and Justin are on, as cacao explorers and I am very excited about meeting other souls that can feel the call of the Cacao Magic
