Sydney's party scene is about to be enlightened with a tantalisingly new age social option, particularly aimed at those who see themselves as part of the growing health conscious community. A community drawn to raw food and detoxification, and away from alcohol and drugs. Welcome to the World's Biggest Raw Cacao Dance Party, a dance event showcasing the ancient Peruvian bean and super food cacao. This remarkable natural substance brought the world the essential ingredient that makes up what we now know as chocolate, only without the sugar and other toxic substances that are commonly mixed with it today.

Why cacao you might ask? Well, that's easy! Everyone knows that chocolate makes us feel great. But in the case of raw cacao, it takes the euphoric and health benefits to a whole other level. Not only is cacao energising, but in its raw state, it is also one of the best super foods on the planet. It plays an essential role in opening the heart not to mention relaxing the body due to its high levels of magnesium. It also provides the role of feeding the feel-good neurotransmitters in the brain. Cacao even has incredibly high levels of antioxidants, which protect the body and cells from free radical damage.

According to author and raw super food advocate David "Avocado" Wolfe, cacao can also open over 300 different elimination and detoxification pathways in the body. He also advocates that cacao is jam packed with beneficial neurotransmitters such as serotonin, tryptophan, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine. This chemical combination is commonly referred to as the "love chemicals" or "bliss chemicals", primarily due to their role in elevating a person's mood as a result of altering the mind's chemistry. He believes in the substance so much in fact, that he has decided to market the World's Biggest Raw Cacao Dance Party as part of his final Australia-wide tour.

In addition to this, cacao also has over 143 active components or phytonutrients in each bean. These nutrients allow for optimal cellular function and communication. When the body's cells are communicating effectively, the proper sequence of enzymatic reactions can take place. This leads to biochemical reactions creating healthier tissues and organ systems. It also aids in the detoxification of foreign substances, while maintaining a strong immune system. Cacao also allows the muscles to perform in optimal fashion when called upon. This especially goes for all those essential dancing muscles. So who needs drugs and alcohol when you can get a great hit of euphoric bliss from raw chocolate!

Best of all, raw chocolate administered via cacao elixirs has the added benefit of providing partygoers with a seemingly everlasting energy boost. In regards to elixirs, SuperFeast will have guests covered with a series of raw vegan cacao concoctions that are guaranteed to delight and excite. If all that goodness isn't enough, there is also the fact that this amazing essential ingredient will allow individuals to avoid the depressing comedown effects of more common party drugs and alcohol. Even better than that, partygoers will avoid the inevitable and painful hangovers.

Event organiser Mason Taylor who also doubles as the CEO of SuperFeast, is a pioneer of these events in Australia. His last effort broke the record for the largest raw cacao dance party to have ever been held. The event hosted in Sydney back in 2013 managed to gather over 500 health conscious and like-minded people. This year he is back to see if he can break the record again, as he aims to invite over 700 consciously happy and cacao fueled partygoers.

David "Avocado" Wolfe will be making a most welcome appearance at the party, in what is going to be an essential stopover during his Australia wide tour, as he spreads the word on holistic health and the remarkable world of raw super foods. David Wolfe is arguably one the original holistic health gurus who put ancient edible substances on the map including the likes of cacao and goji berries. Being raised by parents who were both doctors, he grew to appreciate more natural health remedies and vital nutritional sources used to prevent diseases and encourage optimal wellness.

Guests to the party can look forward to an overwhelming abundance of raw organic chocolate from Australia's own revolutionary raw chocolatiers Pana Chocolate. Party people with an incredibly open-mind will also have the opportunity to try what is known as cacao "snuff". This incredibly unique method of consuming cacao requires a specially designed tool utilising a trigger mechanism which fires two spoons of cacao up the nostrils. The apparatus known as the "chocolate shooter" was first created for a Rolling Stone party a number of years ago by Belgian chocolatier Dominique Persoone. The method is based on the old Victorian snuff shooters of a bygone era.

Snorting raw chocolate may sound like something out of an R-rated version of Willy Wonka, however, the trend has become strangely popular in Europe. Michelin star chefs including the likes of Heston Blumenthal have utilised similar devices in their restaurants in recent years, as diners consistently seek new experiences in his acclaimed restaurant The Fat Duck. While it may not for everyone and perhaps even dangerous to the nostrils, it is sure to be entertaining to watch while others put themselves into such an unusual predicament.

Guests at the party will also have the opportunity to enjoy whole plant-foods from Sadhana Kitchen in addition to concoctions from Amazonia and SuperFeast. The later two companies will be providing acai, cacao and medicinal mushrooms respectively.The party will not only be a celebration of raw super foods. There will also be other highlights including body-painting and Mayan massage angels. Fire goddess Bella Fuego will also be in attendance to put on one hell of a show for everyone's entertainment. The party will also open with a shamanic ceremony which will be followed by a sacred sound journey so guests can keep their vibrations high.

Revellers will also be treated to live music from festival favourites The Rhythm Hunters as they make their way down from the Central Coast. Partygoers will also have the privilege to experience a cacao ceremony from guest of honour and cacao shaman David "Avocado" Wolfe. Tribal yoga will also be on offer courtesy of Shen Sismanoglu. This is sure to be ideal preparation for the electronic dance music to follow, as DJ Azaya sets the mood for guests to dance the night away.

This years raw cacao dance party theme will be "Aztec Gold", which is right in line with the bean's South American origins. Cacao was once the currency of this ancient world and as a consequence partygoers are encouraged to wear glitter, gold body paint, hotpants, bling or anything that else that shines. Essentially whatever their heart desires, as long as they are prepared to dance into the early hours with a whole lot of sparkle.
