On Episode 24 of the Yoga Journal podcast, The Yoga Show, host Lindsay Tucker heads out to Topanga, California to try a sacred cacao ceremony as part of Christine Olivia Hernandez’s Maltyox Method, a gratitude celebration for clearing the mind, opening the heart, and strengthening the body and soul.
The cacao bean, which was discovered by the Olmecs around 1500 BC, has been used by the Mayan and Aztect cultures for centuries as a sacred and ritualistic plant medicine.
Join Christine and Tucker as they talk about:
- The power of gratitude
- The healing power of cacao and ceremony
- Reconnecting with Christine’s Mayan roots
- And more!
Christine is a yoga teacher and writer of the book A Child of Magic. She opened her home to share her maltyox method and teach us about the healing and uplifting properties of cacao. Follow Christine on instagram at @christineolivia_ and more on the Maltyox Method at maltyoxmethod.com
