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, intentional journey with the Spirit.  

Are You Ready To Answer That Call? 


Next training begins March 20, 2024

Holding transformational space is the culmination of lots of training as well as a deep connection with the medicine being served and the tradition from which it originates.

The Plant Medicine sector is one of the fastest-growing professional sectors in the world. As a growing field in therapy and personal transformation, the opportunities for highly-skilled, experienced facilitators are endless. 

There is a beautiful emergence and popularity of Cacao Ceremonies as well, as humanity awakens more and more.

What a sacred opportunity and gift for you to share with your community in an authentic, conscious, respectful, and embodied manner. 

There is great honor and responsibility in sharing these ancestral, sacred Plant Medicines with others in Ceremony.

What's Included In The Goddess Temple Cacao

Facilitator's Training Method...

STEP 1  - The Cacao Consciousness Deep Dive

 A 16-day guided journey and initiation to develop a deep, profound sacred, and reverent connection and union with the Cacao Consciousness to become significantly evolved at this time in your spiritual evolution.
  • 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). 
Learn more about the Deep Dive

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 

Deep Dive Phase  

The Deep Dive period will begin and end with a sacred DEEP DIVE CACAO CEREMONY with Judy. You will spend 8 days during the DEEP DIVE drinking a specific amount of CEREMONIAL CACAO twice daily, to connect deeply to the Consciousness. During this time, you will 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 Consciousness rather than with others. This deep 8-day journey will ignite a profound shift in your intuition and connection to Infinite Source Consciousness.

Integration Phase  

You will spend the last 5 post Deep Dive days experiencing more insights as the Cacao Consciousness 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 your Emotional Footprints in a powerful way.

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

Judy Machado

Author, 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 with the plant, drinking and speaking to her daily, and working intimately with a Shipibo-Canibo-trained Shaman, in ceremony, in Shamanic Dietas, as an assistant to her ceremonies, then co-hosting Shamanic Cacao ceremonies, before hosting on her own. 

Judy began to experience a profound and sacred relationship with the Cacao higher consciousness, receiving messages to share with the world. 

Cacao has exponentially accelerated her spiritual journey and she now supports others who are hearing the calling from the Cacao, to first Dive Deep with the Cacao Teacher Plant, then facilitate in ceremony to others. 

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 a Cacao Ceremonialist. 

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

In her first year connecting every day to the Cacao, drinking 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 "no, not yet. I want to journey with you even deeper. For now, host circles and blessings, and the Cacao Tea (not the Cacao Paste). 

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 her. No one can tell you when you are ready to begin hosting. Only the Cacao 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."
