A deep and authentic experience to the Heart

We are able to offer Cacao Ceremonies in Perth, Western Australia once again. See our bookings page for new dates.


Willow and Catherine Francis have been working with plant medicine in ceremony together since they met in 2008. They first worked with Cacao in this context in Guatemala in December 2010 and have been holding regular Ceremonies with Cacao ever since, with the intention of supporting individuals to re-connect with their heart, their core values and to be still whilst in a circle of others doing the same. The chemical constituents of cacao support concentration and focus, a sense of wellbeing, relaxation, a connection to the senses, personal insight and an authentic communion with one’s own heart and heart’s intelligence.

Sound Technology

We incorporate a blend of leading edge brainwave synchronizing technologies including sound engineering from The Monroe Institute (Spacial Angle Modulation) and IAwake Technologies as well alpha, theta and delta synchronizing frequencies.

All to assist the brain to slow down to the deeper rhythms normally only accessible to those very experienced in meditation or trance work.

When the brain rhythms start to slow, our awareness shifts and we become more open to perceiving life in a different way. Many experience enhanced creativity, inspiration, self-reflection, self-healing and deep relaxation with the support of the sound technology.

Time stills in these altered states and we can become more present, relating to ourselves anew.

Combining this technology with evocative and eclectic music and singing, including soaring female vocals, overtone singing, wide ambient soundscapes and traditional indigenous music, we are able to facilitate a unique and powerful inner journey.


Ceremony adds richness, connection, depth and meaning to our experience of life. It is a label that describes a concentration of intent and attention where we consciously create richer moments. 

“Ceremony is more beneficial for human continuity than any machine or technological development” Thomas Moore
