On December 1, The Conscious Club will guide their first cocoa ceremony at Hotel INNSiDE by Meliá Amsterdam, a modern lifestyle hotel on the Zuidas. The Conscious Club is an organization that offers places where your body, mind, and spirit awaken through various activities and workshops, such as guided breathing, meditations, and ceremonies.

The cocoa ceremony 
Raw cacao is a natural medicine used for thousands of years within the Mayan culture in South America for medicinal, spiritual, and ceremonial purposes. Raw cacao has been shown to boost the immune system and lower cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as lead to a happiness boost and a deeper spiritual connection. Cacao is a true heart opener, a mild medicine that reconnects us to our intuitive selves, and in our daily busy existence, a welcome healer. During The Conscious Club’s cocoa ceremony at Hotel INNSiDE by Meliá Amsterdam this fall, the focus is on letting go and preparing for winter with new goals and intentions. The ceremony is guided by the owners of The Conscious Club; Elizabeth Plokker and Charon Tolhuisen, accompanied by harpist and singer Fralalai.

All arranged for your self-care  
The ceremony revolves around raw cocoa, meditation, sharing, movement, and music. Because a gathering can sometimes leave deep impressions, the retreat is all geared around comfort and relaxation. You start with a delicious dinner at the newly opened Hasta La Vista, Baby on the 19th floor of Hotel INNSiDE by Meliá, followed by the cocoa ceremony. After the ceremony, all you have to do is walk to your room to immediately dream away and process all the impressions. In the morning, a full breakfast awaits you at Tierra, a spacious restaurant that blends effortlessly into the imposing lobby. At Tierra, guests can go for flexworking, business lunches and a quick sandwich or coffee to go, as well as cocktails and bites.

The retreat includes dinner, cocoa ceremony, overnight stay and breakfast and costs €269 per person. Tickets:
