It is a structured support system so you can dive into cacao and connect with the power and beauty of sharing it with others.
This program is for you if:

- You are drawn to the medicine of cacao and sharing that with others
- You feel called to the healing arts & ceremony
- You are excited to commit at least 6 hours/week towards this course
This course is designed to create the foundations for your personal practice with cacao ceremony. Cacao naturally wants to be shared with others as part of that practice, so elements of facilitation are covered, but the emphasis is more on personal learning and practice than training facilitators. A specific facilitator training program is in the works for 2019.
Into the Heart is an online program that provides a robust structure for you to explore cacao in a focused and supported way.

"Moses is an exceptional facilitator for inner work. He holds a loving, non-judgmental space for every participants' process during the cacao training. My one-on-one conversations with Moses boosted my confidence as a facilitator. I highly recommend the training for anyone interested in working with cacao in group settings."
- Liana Naima
"How to cultivate your own personal bond with cacao! Being held with Moses’s guidance & a Cacao community, you not only learn about cacao firsthand, you embody this ally plant and integrate it into everyday scenarios. Through your journey with Heartblood Cacao, your life unfolds in Beautiful ways you wouldn’t have expected!"
- Anna San Francisco, CA
"I was introduced to cacao shortly after a deep loss and, recognizing how the plant medicine could support my grief, I enrolled in Into the Heart. I enjoyed learning about cacao and experimenting with its taste and feel as I was taking it. I discovered cacao was a third-eye opener for me and it supports shamanic journeying very well. I love playing my guitar while working with cacao, as it brings a spiritual aspect to making music. Perhaps the greatest benefit of the course was that I was able to release some very heavy stuff and bring light into some dark places through my own healing process. I can now offer group cacao ceremonies to my community as part of a broader offering of shamanic healing practices. I am grateful for the experience of the course and the wonderful way Moses and my cohorts held space for me. "
- Past Participant
"This was a truly heart opening experience. The assignments were perfect for exploring Cacao as a subtle but powerful plant medicine and Moses' ability to hold sacred space and integrate the learnings was integral to the transformative effect of this course. I am so grateful to have been a part of this course and I am inspired to continue working with Cacao for myself and in my work as a Life Coach."
- Past Participant
"The gifts of clarity, direction, unity, purpose and an open heart are what I have received through my journey with the spirit of cacao. Much gratitude to you Moses for creating this training, for holding us so gently, for connecting us with others across the world and for sharing this beautiful feminine plant medicine with us".
- Past Participant
"Overall, I am feeling more clear, integrated and comfortable in my body. Thank you, Moses, for holding sacred space and allowing the cacao to work its magic in its own way, and in its own timing. Filled with gratitude"

"Even though we are spread all over this amazing earth I can still feel us as a community doing this together! Sending my compassion and thoughts out to you all!"
