London Hotel Offers Guests Sacred Cacao Ceremony

Lani Rocillo X The London Edition

As discussed in Travel for the Agile Elite, high-end consumers are increasingly looking to travel as a way to achieve wellness and spiritual growth. Tapping into this trend, luxe UK hotel The London Edition is holding a series of spiritual workshops for its guests.

The three-hour sessions will involve a sacred cacao ceremony, where guests drink a rich, ceremonial brew whilst listening to healing rhythmic gongs and being guided through meditations to encourage a calm mind and a sense of presence.

The ceremonies will be led by Lani Rocillo, founder of London multidisciplinary healing arts platform Wisdom Roundhouse, which focuses on promoting wellness using mystical, artistic and scientific crafts. Workshops will be held on several dates later this month, costing £26 ($34) per person.

Cacao is known to have medicinal properties and promotes balance and emotional wellbeing. As seen in New Food Covetables, the substance is being touted as an all-natural, spiritual high, used by healthy hedonists across the world for its mind-expanding qualities.
