Testimonials :

“Rosy and Lisa have been creating a very cozy and heartwarming space. I loved the way they explained about the ceremony, the Cacao (cultivated from Rosys family-farm) and how they guided us through the whole ceremony. The ceremony-opening-prayer, hold by Rosy, was very beautiful. She leaded us into the Peruvian jungle and to the seeds of Mama Cacao. When Rosy and Lisa startet so sing, it felt like we are entering a boat and sealing together to another sphere. Singing, celebrating life and praying all together sitting and dancing in a circle, so beautiful.

I wish Rosy and Lisa many more Cacao ceremonies to realize again in Switzerland and around the world.”

“When I met Rosy, I felt a strong connection to her and to my motherland Peru. Rosy radiates and lives beauty and carries the soul of the jungle and the Andes. The cacao from her family is gentle and rich in flavors. Every time I drink a cup, I feel a shift happening.

The cacao ceremonies that Rosy and Lisa provide are just beautiful and loving. They create an intimate and safe space to share thoughts and feelings and to open the voice and heart to the vast array of songs they have collected through their travels. Rosy and Lisa are pure inspiration.”
