From Vision to Reality
Inspired by a visionary dream, Brant Secunda, Shaman, Healer and Ceremonial Leader in the Huichol tribal tradition, created SHAMAN Organic Chocolates as a way to provide on-going financial support so the Huichols can continue to live in their traditional ways, keep their ceremonies, and create their visionary artwork.
We believe that homage should be given to those who have appreciated chocolate for thousands of years. Chocolate is not only delicious and beneficial to our own health, but the Huichol utilize as a tool to connect with Mother Earth and share her inherent love.
THE SHAMAN CHOCOLATES MISSION
Our goal is to create the most delicious and ethical chocolate possible, while simultaneously giving back to the Huichol people, who have honored this food of the gods since time immemorial. We strive to do good in all that we do.
