Course Syllabus

Here's a summary of each week, along with a few (but not all) examples of the lessons in each week... 

WEEK ONE: Setting the Space

You'll be getting everything ready, including your self, and your chosen ceremonial space, and you'll be learning some key info about Cacao and Ceremony before you begin using them. 


WEEK TWO: Ceremonial Preparation

You'll learn to use the power of Intention, and will formulate your intentions for the course and your first ceremony. This intention will guide your altar creation and you will set up an altar in your ceremonial space which can stay in place for the duration of the course. 

WEEK THREE: The Ceremonial Container

Here you'll learn the art of opening and closing sacred space, and will be invited to choose a prayer or create your own prayer based on the guide you'll get. You'll also learn about what it means to "hold space" and how to hold space for yourself during a ceremony. Making it this far means you have the basics to create your first ceremony. 


WEEK FOUR: Ceremonial Space

Now the super fun part! We focus on things you can use your ceremony for, and you'll be invited to make your own ceremony (or ceremonies!) and follow my sessions to learn tools for self healing, energy management, and how to use them to find insights on issues close to your heart by connecting to your higher self and spirit guides. 

WEEK FIVE: Deepening the Ceremony

This is where it gets really deep and as well as being guided to do a shamanic journey to meet the Spirit of Cacao, you'll also learn how to do a Shamanic Journey for yourself so that you can continue to meet and ask the spirit or your guides for support and inspiration. You'll also learn the art of creative channelling which can take your creative passions to the next level and free you up for inspiration to pour through you, and learn to conduct a powerful manifestation ritual.

WEEK SIX: Integration

Some wisely say that the real healing and lessons come when we integrate the ceremony into our day to day life. This week will focus on how to integrate the teachings you receive in your sacred space to live a more sacred and connected life, and turn to these tools as you're called to day to day. From here you're invited to focus on how your ceremonies will be unique and how you can bring your other passions and skills to the ceremony.


✨ You'll forge a lifelong relationship with the spirit of Cacao by doing a 'dieta' which means 'special diet' where you will consume Cacao each day for 5 days and refrain from certain other things, so that you can really learn and feel the vibration of Cacao. 


✨ You'll get teachings and guided meditation for heart centred living.


✨ Music you can use in your ceremony



Joy pouring Cacao.png

Hi, I'm Joy! I had a 6 month initiation with the sacred medicine Cacao in 2016 that drastically changed my life.


I had a profound healing experience which led to a deep heart opening, and I made a sincere commitment to be in service to Love. I have been working as a Ceremonial space-holder, healer, and self-love teacher since then. Part of my service now, is to offer what I can to support others in finding their own self-healing, inspiration, manifesting potential, and self-love.


I love seeing others become empowered with their inner wisdom, so that they can walk their spiritual path, embody their personal medicine, and give their gifts, in harmony with others and with nature.


My courses aim to lift you up, to show you that you are already enough, and don't need to wait any longer to create your ceremony and perform rituals that will enhance your life, deepen your relationship to spirit, and free up the creative expression of your soul.


It's based on what I have learnt myself about holding ceremony, and I know how well it works because I use it all the time in my own life, in meaningful and enriching ways. I pray it brings you everything you hope and more!


With love,

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need Cacao to do this?

Yes! If you don't already have your own top quality Cacao you can purchase these in the shop and I'll post them to you!

Is Cacao safe for everyone?

Yes, although I recommend a very low dose if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or using SSRI medication.

Will chocolate powder do?

Ideally not, it has been heavily processed and usually has other ingredients added. While it may be yummy, many of the positive effects would be lost.

Can I do this another time?

Absolutely, although once the current launch date passes the price will not be this low anymore!

Do I get a certificate?

On completion you will get a Crystal Heart School Certificate of Completion. If you are called to hold professional Ceremonies for the general public, you can continue to train with Crystal Heart School's professional training which will be certified and allow you to get insurance. The professional training includes mentorship from Joy and a community of space-holders to support and empower you to hold space with Cacao in the unique way that your soul is calling to help others. If this is part of your path, then "Cacao Ceremony Creation" is a self-initiation which can solidify your relationship with Cacao and your capacity to hold space for yourself, in preparation for professional training.

What's the refund policy?

Refunds can be given in the first 7 days if you email to ask for one. The 7 day refund policy ensures that if it genuinely isn't for you, you can opt out before getting in deep! Most of the juicy content is beyond the first 7 days. Once you really create a relationship with Cacao the magic starts to happen, and big shifts often occur as you progress through this course. That is why if you are beyond the 7 day period, I will encourage you to move through the course and complete your healing process rather than quit and interupt that process. Sometimes with courses as deep as this, there can be times of discomfort to move through before the gifts appear.

Is this a professional training?

No. Crystal Heart won't recommend that anyone holds professional ceremonies for the general public without completing the professional training designed just for that. However, for anyone interested in that training, this is the first step, and although some exceptions are made, most people are only invited to the professional training once this course has been completed. Email Joy at for more info!

What if I cannot make the live sessions?

No problem! If you have questions you'd like me to answer in the live sessions, email and I will include it. You can watch the recording of the live session any time to catch up.

What if I need extra support?

Book coaching sessions with me on my booking page. Anything purely technical, email

What if I can't decide if this course is right for me?

Schedule a chat with me about it, with no obligation, and we can explore if it is the best fit for your current goals.
