Chocolate Workshop & Cacao Blessing

Join us for an immersive 2.5 to 3-hour workshop where we will introduce you to the fascinating world of chocolate and ceremonial cacao.

This isn’t just any ordinary workshop, it’s a journey led by an accidental artisan who turned a love for chocolate into a lifeline and a spiritual guide who uses cacao in ceremony.

In the first part of the workshop, you’ll learn about the origins of chocolate, tracing its journey from the tropical cacao tree to the delicious confections we know and love. We’ll demystify the process of modern chocolate making, taking you through each stage from fermentation to tempering.
You’ll also gain a deeper understanding of the science behind tempering, a crucial process that gives chocolate its signature shine and snap.

But it’s not just about how chocolate is made, it’s about the ingredients that go into it. We’ll discuss why selecting high-quality ingredients matters and how it not only impacts the final product but the people involved in the process.
In the final part of the workshop, you will be introduced to the world of sacred ceremonial cacao. You’ll learn about its history, participate in a small cacao blessing, and discuss its benefits and uses.

Whether you’re a chocolate lover, or simply curious, this workshop is a chance to deepen your appreciation for chocolate and ceremonial cacao, and maybe even inspire your own chocolate journey.


About the presenter:

Lee Ann - The Cheeky Project Perth

“Hello! I’m Lee Ann, the heart and soul behind The Cheeky Project. My journey started in the corporate world, where stress and unhealthy habits led me to a major lifestyle transformation. I ditched gluten, dairy, and refined sugars, and discovered that wellness is a continuous journey, not a destination.

After stepping away from my executive role, I focused on healing and found a way to combine my new-found love for chocolate with my passion for health. Today, I’m the proud creator of Cheeky Cacao, a range of award-winning artisan chocolates that are as surprisingly delicious as they are healthy. Handmade in small batches, our chocolates are gluten-free, soy-free, vegan-friendly, and free from refined sugar.

I’m on a mission to spread joy one cheeky chocolate at a time and I can’t wait to share the journey with you.”



What to bring:

An open mind and some time for yourself.

We look forward to sharing this experience with you.
