Goddess Temple Cacao

Guiding you to experience and honor the ancient lineage to becoming an embodied Cacao Master Plant Medicine Facilitator


Judy spent a year and half Consulting for a bean-to-bar chocolate company. She became infatuated with the spiritual story and significance of Cacao and whole-heartedly connected to the power of this heart-opening, Consciousness-raising plant medicine. 

She worked intimately with a Shipibo-Canibo trained Shaman to deepen her connection with the plant, journeying through many of the ancient and sacred Cacao Dietas to receive teachings and wisdom. She began to experience a deepening relationship to this benevolent Spirit Guide, receiving messages to share with the world. 

When was Judy initiated to host sacred Cacao Ceremonies for others?

In her first year, drinking daily in personal ceremony, speaking to the Cacao Spirit, she would often ask Cacao "Is it time now for me to begin hosting Cacao Ceremonies with my community?". She kept hearing from the Cacao Spirit "No, not yet. I want to journey with you even deeper. For now, host circles and blessings and not ceremonies."

Only after approx 6 months, did Judy receive this initiation from the Cacao:  "Yes, go and share now my medicine with others, through Sacred Ceremony & Ritual".  

After receiving the "yes now is the time, go and share my medicine with others', Judy began to facilitate Cacao Ceremonies, all the while continuing her daily deepening & devotional journey with the Cacao Spirit. 

This journey of first connecting so deeply with the Cacao Spirit, through several Dietas, before serving Cacao to others, was instrumental in connecting to her Spirit and receiving and embodying her teachings while holding space for others through Facilitation. 
Each person has a different journey with the Cacao Spirit. No one can tell you when you are ready to begin hosting. Only the Cacao Spirit can tell you this. She wants you to journey profoundly with her, to guide you on your own healing work, and then she will initiate you.
Cacao has exponentially accelerated Judy's spiritual journey and she now shares this Sacred Cacao with others to experience through daily rituals, Ceremonies or Cacao Deep Dive Dieta Journeys, and Cacao + Wellness Retreats in Peru & the Azores. 
She is continually investing in her self-realization through ongoing Dietas and daily communion with the Cacao Spirit, and she includes Cacao rituals in all her initiatives including her coaching and consulting programs.
Judy’s purpose is to support others in raising their awareness, which includes daily rituals of this powerful Sacred Cacao Master Plant Medicine. 
This is the intention of the Goddess Temple Cacao Facilitator's Training: Judy guiding you into this sacred, deeply devotional journey, relationship and passage DIRECTLY WITH the Cacao Spirit.

Speaking Engagements:

"Judy has a warm and positive engaging approach. The ladies often don’t get time to reflect or think of themselves because they are busy raising a family. The workshop offered the girls a comfortable space to put themselves first; they were intrigued and grateful for Judy’s presentation. We've had Judy come and speak for us over 4 times now! I truthfully feel that her workshops have positively impacted all of our Home Visitors and have given them the right tools to also be ready and support our clients. I can't thank her enough for always being there for our Centre. Today, we had a team meeting and we started our day with two points that we all took away; let's just say we spent 30 minutes talking and sharing! It was amazing!"

Her presentation shared during the Thankathon event was so beautiful, meaningful, and passionate. In our feedback survey, several respondents expressed gratitude for the grounding, breathwork, and reflections that she brought to the space, especially those who mentioned being really nervous to make phone calls!
