Hannah’s name came up multiple times in conversation before I had the pleasure of meeting her here in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. “Have you been to one of her cacao ceremonies?” was the question I was most often asked and the answer was always…no. I had never been to a women’s gathering and I had never been to a cacao ceremony. They sounded lovely and everyone I spoke to seemed to have benefited from them, however, I had never made the effort to go.
And so I continued to hear about how amazing Hannah was and what amazing work she was doing, without having met her or attended any of her events. In my mind she was a kind, jungle Goddess who spread love, light, and fairy dust around town, enchanting all those she met. Then I actually met Hannah.
It was all true (ok, maybe not the fairy dust).
Not only is Hannah a kind, jungle Goddess, she is a fierce and passionate investigator. As a result of her interest in women’s history around the world, Hannah has devoted herself to researching, understanding, and sharing women’s stories and how the past has informed our present day culture. Through ceremonies, retreats, workshops, and classes Hannah shares the knowledge she has gained from her global travels, merging past with present to bring women together through empowerment, community, and education.
Since then I have attended more than one ceremony with Hannah and each time I find something new within myself.
Something I didn’t know needed addressing.
Something I didn’t realized needed mending.
Thank you Hannah for sharing these traditions with so many and for holding space for women to explore the depths of their own Souls.
