The Facilitators

Nele and Linda, the facilitators, will lead your transformative journey at the retreat. With expertise in guiding cacao ceremonies, they invite you to connect deeply with your heart and soul amidst the serene landscapes of Guatemala. Join them for an immersive experience of self-discovery and inner peace.

About Nele

Nele found her way to Cacao in Guatemala. Exactly where this retreat is taking place. That is why it's so special to her to hold this retreat here. At the Kawoq Forest she volunteered for 4 months and in that time she learnt all about Cacao & the art of holding Cacao Ceremonies. A deep transformation happened inside of her and Cacao never left her side since then.

She has been holding Cacao Ceremonies since 2018 in all its various forms and is now teaching students all over the world inside World of Cacao to do the same. Nele is a holistic yoga teacher, mantra singer (Pachamantra) and Cacao ceremony facilitator. She loves to create beauty and to remind you of your JOY and love with all that she does.

About Linda

Linda joined her first cacao ceremony some years ago held by the one and only Nele. It was her who brought Linda in closer contact with this soft and feminine plant medicine. Ever since, Linda was deeply touched by the reconnection to Mother Earth and its generous gifts, such as the cacao bean.

She is soooo happy about returning back to Guatemala and its magical Lake Atitlan. The Kawoq Forest is the place where Linda did her YTT and got her clear mission for life: “To spread and inspire love.” Simple as that ;) She loves singing, massaging, and laughing. 

Come with us on a journey that will change your life.
