This dark rich cacao has the energy of the west, the longshadow. It is made in honor of Mauna Loa; it is said this is where Pele first arrived on the big island before moving to Kilauea on the SE flank of the mountain. Mauna Loa is the largest volcano in the world and and is among the Earth’s most active volcanoes having errupted 33 times.
This cacao honors the long walk of the shadow and will support you in deep nurturing shadow work as it lovingly brings this up to be dealt with, let go of and celebrate new beginings.
