Meet the Team
My focus is on doing inner work with with aid of Cacao, drumming, meditation, and expression. I’ve been an avid meditator for 8 years and more recently have started utilizing shamanistic drum techniques. Cacao and drums work synergistically to aid in our ability to turn our sights inward and activate our intuition.
This can help you gain clarity, feed an intention, re-connect with your most authentic self, or give you a sense renewed sense of energy and peace.
My day jobs consist of working at a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm and doing regenerative landscaping to aid homeowners in creating environments that are both aesthetic and help support the local ecology.
I find working with the land to be very rewarding and healing and its something I highly recommend as a supplement to other healing work. Outside of those jobs I love making music and cooking simple healthy meals. I bring these things up because I believe there are many pillars to good health and I wish to share the pillars that have proven to be very effective for me in order to further help support others on their journeys.
Greetings, I am Nathan Lee Johanneck. Ever since High School in 2012 I have had a deep fascination with healthy eating and living. This fascination has now evolved into a passionate purpose and way of life. I have completed several courses and programs over the last 6 years including a 28-day primitive survival course at Boulder Outdoor Survival School, the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Currently I work on Lost Corner Farm located just outside of Leesburg, VA growing fine produce, raising chickens for eggs, all for a Community Supported Agriculture. Lost Corner Farm is also where I met my cohort, business partner, and best friend, Jack (this was back in 2016). One thing led to another and we’ve relocated to West Virginia and discovered the wonders of Ceremonial Cacao. And thus, Cha’man Chocolate Co. was born.
