Raised with the idea that our external world, our physical reality is a result of our internal perspective has allowed her to understand that we can be in power of our circumstances. While spending some time in Guatemala diving into metaphysics and the knowledge of dreams, cacao (chocolate at its most pure form) came into her experience and transformed her approach to life. Learning the powerful physical benefits this plant offers along with its spiritual admiration was just the beginning.
