Willow Francis has spent over 20 years working in the western medical model. He has also travelled the world studying humanity in all its forms and exploring the depths of the human condition.
After gradually moving away from the “ill health model”, Willow dived deeply, as he does with all areas of his life, into complimentary medicine and alternative health modalities. His main focus then became working with deep relaxation, trance states and meditation.
Over the past 10 years he has been facilitating events, ceremonies, workshops, retreats and lectures around the world supporting others to connect with a more expanded state of consciousness.
For the last 4 years he has also worked with his partner Catherine in their business Roar Superfoods – looking at how high resonance nutrient rich foods can support expansion. It is over this time that Catherine and Willow both identified the significance of Cacao.
Willow is totally committed to his work with Cacao. He is always happy to talk with anyone interested in exploring the bigger questions in life.
Being intensely interested in the mind and body from a young age, Catherine Francis studied for many years in the areas of anatomy, physiology, psychology, anthropology and physiotherapy. After delving deeply into the physical world, a seed of discontent emerged and she redirected her exploration into the more abstract but nevertheless undeniable non-physical arena. Her attention moved to spirituality and quantum theory.
For the past 4 years she has been working with her business Roar Superfoods to explore how high life force, nutrient rich foods such as Cacao facilitate a connection with a more expanded life perspective and a deeper kinship to humanity.
During this time she has also been co-facilitating regular ceremonial events using traditional South American plant medicines.
The journey to facilitating Cacao Ceremonies was a natural progression of bringing all these arenas together into an integrated whole.
Her life vision is to support herself and others to live from the heart.
In 2010 Willow and Catherine traveled to Guatemala to train with acclaimed “Cacao Shaman” Keith in Lake Atitlana. This wonderful man shared his 14 years of experience working with Cacao in ceremony with them and enabled them to bring their vision back to Australia and to fruition in April 2011.
They combined this knowledge of Cacao with their experience of ceremony, sound and trance states.
Willow and Catherine have been facilitating Cacao Ceremonies in Fremantle, Western Australia since then and these sacred events continue to unfold and evolve in incredible ways.
