Are you on a deep spiritual journey, hearing the Calling of the Cacao

to share this heart-opening medicine with your community?


Did you know that, for thousands of years, the cosmic sacred Master Plant Medicines were calling mostly on Shamans and Conscious Teachers, who were in a higher resonancce and frequency, ready to respect the sacred teachings from the Spirits. 

There is an ancient, sacred process to experience, when called by the Cacao Spirit, BEFORE hosting your own personal ceremonies and it begins with you taking a sacred multiple-day Cacao Dieta, intentional journey with the Spirit.  

Are You Ready To Answer That Call? 


Next training begins May 29, 2024

Why must we honor the ancient Cacao Embodiment Facilitator Dieta?

The inclusion of the Cacao Facilitator Dieta in our training is not just a unique feature; it's a cornerstone of our approach to becoming a true Cacao Ceremonialist.

This ancient, intentional journey is designed to deepen your connection with the Cacao Spirit, enabling a transformation that’s both personal and profound.

 Here’s why the Dieta is integral to your training:

  • Deep, Personal Connection with Cacao: Engaging in a Facilitator's Dieta with Cacao fosters a sacred relationship with the plant spirit, opening channels for direct and personalized guidance.

  • Purification and Preparation: The Dieta serves as a period of purification, preparing your physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies to receive the profound wisdom and healing power of Cacao.

  • Heightened Intuition and Sensitivity: Through the Dieta, your intuition and sensitivity to the subtle energies and messages of the plant spirits are enhanced, enriching your ability to facilitate ceremonies with depth and authenticity.

  • Alignment with Ancestral Practices: Participating in a Facilitator's Dieta aligns you with the ancient traditions of master plant medicine work, honoring the ways of the shamans and teachers who have walked this path before.

  • Foundation for Sacred Service: The Dieta lays the groundwork for your service as an embodied facilitator, ensuring that you approach your role with the utmost respect, reverence, and responsibility.

  • Empowerment to Share Cacao‚Äôs Gifts: By experiencing the transformative power of Cacao firsthand, you are better equipped to share its gifts with others, facilitating ceremonies that are genuine, impactful, embodied and true to the spirit of Cacao.

This journey through the Dieta is a profound initiation into the world of Cacao Ceremonialism, designed to prepare you to step into your role as a Plant Medicine Facilitator with confidence, integrity, and a deep, personal connection to the Cacao Spirit.

What's Included In The Goddess Temple Cacao

Facilitator's Training Method...

STEP 1  - The Cacao Facilitator Deep Dive Dieta

A 16-day guided journey and initiation to develop a deep, profound sacred, and reverent connection and union with the Cacao Spirit.


  • 3 phases as described below
  • Some food and social conditions¬†to be acknowledged¬†
  • Open and Closing Ceremony online (or in-person at no extra cost, if you are in the same city as Judy, at the time).¬†

Introspection Phase

You will begin your special diet and spend the first 3 days preparing for the DEEP DIVE with little social interactions/social media (however still going to work or going through your normal day-to-day life, as usual). This phase is for introspective and preparing you to stay WITHIN during the Deep Dive Dieta.

Deep Dive Phase  

The period will begin and end with a sacred Deep Dive Dieta Cacao Ceremony online with Judy. You will spend this time drinking a specific amount of Ceremonial Cacao, guided daily to connect deeply to the Spirit. Experience profound insights into your life and your conditioned beliefs. Judy will guide you daily to share all ideas, thoughts and changes with the Cacao Spirit rather than with others. This deep phase will ignite a profound shift in your intuition and connection to Infinite Source Consciousness.

Integration Phase  

You will spend the last post Deep Dive Dieta days experiencing more insights as the Cacao Spirit continues to work with you. You will also have a private Biko Method session with Konstantine Bisbikos from The Biko Institute to aid you in releasing Emotional Footprints in a powerful way.

A magnificent opportunity to train, personally, with Goddess Temple Cacao's Founder:

Judy Machado

Cacao Ceremonialist & Facilitator Trainer, Judy spent a year and a half as a partner of a bean-to-bar chocolate company. It was then that she became infatuated with the spiritual history and significance of Cacao and whole heartily connected to the spirit of this heart-opening, concisoness-raising Master Plant Medicine. 

Immediately upon receiving the calling from the Cacao, she began to deepen her connection, drinking and speaking to the Spirit daily, and working intimately with a Shipibo-Canibo-trained Shaman, in ceremony, in Shamanic Dietas, assisting her ceremonies and finally receiving clarity, directly from the Cacao Spirit, to begin hosting her own ceremonies. 

Judy is so honored for this profound, deepening relationship with the Cacao Spirit, receiving messages to share with the world, including this Deep Dive Dieta & Mentorship offering, honoring the sacred lineage. 

Judy bursts with passion and gratitude to support you on this sacred and magnificent journey back into your heart, into your cosmic remembering and into your new reality as an embodied Cacao Ceremonialist. 

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 a year, did Judy receive this initiation from the Cacao:  "Yes, go and share now my medicine with others, through Sacred Ceremony & Ritual".  

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 become one with her, and then she will initiate you.

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.  

Here is what people are saying about this advanced training: 

Listen on Beyond The Surface Podcast to one of our graduates share her experience



"Judy has overcome her personal limitations to be very aware, neutral, and joyful even in the most challenging of circumstances.

She exhibits that in her essence and being when she communicates with you, sometimes with her presence, without words. She is an inspirational business and spiritual woman and demonstrates that you can live your dreams in all areas of your life." 

- Cheryl

"Judy provides a roadmap and an anchor into the field of 5D consciousness. Her embodied presence, the sacred space (inside and out) she has cultivated and invites others into, and her loving guidance - have all helped me to return, again and again, to my own higher consciousness, loving presence, and inner wisdom. She’s a role model of how our choices, habits, thoughts, rituals, and actions create our experience in the way she lives and breathes this path. She offers inspiration, knowledge and practical tools for creating an inner world of peace, positivity, and unconditional acceptance that begins to manifest in a new external reality."

- Marci 

"Judy is exceptionally gifted.

The entire offering was moving and unbelievable.

I was and continue to process the higher consciousness teachings that Judy shares."

- Helen
