SAFE TO SHINE
I am Eva, ceremonialist, owner Wild Child Cacao, musician and forever wild child. In what seemed to be a passed life I studied fashion, healing, coaching and yoga. Yet, life took me on a shamanic journey. A deep initiation that is ongoing. Nowadays I only do what feels natural and deeply fullfilling: holding space for peoples healing. Attuning my music to that. Creating sacred space for people to feel safe to shine!
Once I was the shyest girl on the planet. Blushing and feeling uncomfortable speaking up. I spend years overcoming my fear of speaking in public, taking many singing classes and voice liberation courses. With cacao and other plant medicines I slowly dared to express myself freely. Voice liberation is now an important part of my cacao ceremonies. Overcoming judgement and finding the joy of singing again!
I did not plan to travel the world, but life had me book a ticket to Costa Rica in 2017. What I thought would be just 6 weeks became a journey of more then 2 years.
I lived in a community in Nicaragua to learn about cacao, brewing pots for around 40 people every week. After a while I tarted to share songs during the weekly cacao ceremonies.
MAYAS AND AZTECS
Later on I spend time in Chiapas in Mexico with my cacao sister Lilian. We visited cacao farms and stayed with the local farmers. An absolutely magical experience. This is where I learned about cacao fermentation and the Mayan and Aztec traditions.
I stayed in Mexico for 2 years. Learned from Lakota and Mexica traition. I continued to host ceremonies with my partner there and together we went deep into the world of plant medicine.
A dream came true when I got the oppurtunity to stay in the Amazon in Peru for 5 months to diet plants and learn more about ceremony and plant medicine. I lmade beautiful connections with true medicine keepers and feel truly blessed for all my adventures.
