Soul Lift Cacao

By Steven Libowitz   |   May 14, 2020

Nick Meador, a Bay Area-based transformational life coach, holistic event producer, and mindful entrepreneur, is familiar to local seekers through his participatory workshops at the Lucidity Festival at Live Oak Campground each spring. Meador is also the founder of Soul Lift Cacao, which markets organic ceremonial cacao – the natural, unprocessed form of chocolate grown in tropical regions around the world – sourced from family farms and collectives in Guatemala, and he also conducts regular cacao ceremonies. While today cacao is considered a superfood, ancient civilizations used cacao for introspective and celebratory purposes, calling it the “Food of the Gods” and even trading it like currency. This mysterious “plant medicine” side of cacao offers the potential to put you more in touch with your body and your soul. Meador’s weekly ceremonies have moved online but still serve as an opportunity to connect with our bodies and our souls in a secure container. The gatherings take place every Thursday at 4 pm over Zoom. The ceremonies are by donation but you can register for free at Meador has also created a four-week group program called “Get Your Life Together with Cacao” that runs May 16-June 6, aiming to channel the ability of cacao to bring insights that help people get clearer about their life purpose, as well as support the focus and motivation to take consistent action and make that purpose a reality. Meador combines cacao with embodiment practices to de-armor the nervous system (breathwork, trauma release, energetic movement, etc.), and interactive practices to re-pattern communication, beliefs, and identity. The program includes a pound of ceremonial cacao, four weekly experiential cacao journeys via Zoom video with recordings available for later viewing, a private Facebook group for participants, and a private integration call with Meador.
