Long before any explorers set foot on the shores of the New World, the ancient Maya invented a wonderful, delicious and mysterious medicinal food called… chocolate.
Long before Willie Wonka came around, it was known by native cultures as “the food of the gods,” because chocolate, or cacao, can act as a powerful aphrodisiac that awakens the “love hormones” in the body, such as serotonin and dopamine.
It has the power to provide mental clarity, to move you from your head to your heart, and to produce a gentle euphoria.
In Maya society, everyone, rich and poor alike, enjoyed a frothy, rich and delightfully bitter beverage made from this sacred seed. This was true chocolate, used in its purest form to achieve otherworldly states of ecstatic happiness and connection. If you’ve never tried eating raw chocolate, this heart opening experience is not to be missed!
