Seleno Amaru (Snake) Ceremonial Cacao Paste Block - 1kg

100% pure organic, single-origin, Peruvian ceremonial cacao paste. New Zealand-Peruvian owned and operated family business. Scientifically researched and supported by a Callaghan Innovation research grant.

The Amaru (Quecha language - snake) in Andean cosmovision represents the Ukhu Pacha - the world below and the connection to our ancestors. This special ceremonial paste is hand-crafted from criollo cacao in Tocache, Peru, in honour of the Awajun tribe who hold the spiral cacao temple of Monte Grande in Jaen. It is organically shade-grown and hand-selected by our artisanal farmer to the best potency and quality of each block. It is blessed and provides high-vibrational energy, with reverence for Peru's ancient ceremonial cacao traditions. 

Our ceremonial Criollo cacao has an incredible ratio of 29:1 - theobromine:caffeine. Perfect for the uplifting, heart opening effects without the negative side-effects of caffeine over-stimulation. Our biochemical analysis has shown it to be also potent in levels of ethanolamides (NAEs) for feelings of intense bliss, polyphenols for mental clarity and tryptophan for sensations of joy and happiness. It has a strong profile of sweet and fruity flavours absorbed from the Amazonian agroforestry in which it grows.

It is an externalising cacao that brings uplifting, heart opening bliss and energising clarity. We recommend this cacao for use in ceremonies involving movement, breath work, dance, expression and for daily use to assist with energy, immunity, balance and well-being.
