Chocolate is one of the world's most ancient, revered and desirable foods. It's also one of the most endangered, over commercialized and adulterated. When we lose that deep connection to the sacred foods of our ancestors, we lose everything.  We are finally reconnecting to chocolate, but are we aware of just how much we stand to (re) gain?

Plunge down the cacao rabbit hole and discover the profound connections to virtually every facet of the human experience embedded within cacao. This talk pulls in all the ways we can—and should—start thinking about chocolate once again:

- chocolate as mythic history
- chocolate as a rite of passage
- chocolate as health, nutrition and medicine
- chocolate as currency and source of wealth
- chocolate as conservationist and peacemaker
