A Changing Landscape in a Covid-19 World

It seems the world has been turned upside down and inside out.

In a matter of weeks the majority of the people on this beautiful planet are in some form of lockdown, businesses closing, medical systems stretched like never before and many people unsure what the future will hold.

And with all that, the sky is clearing as pollution levels drop, people are coming together (in a safe distancing kind way), and many are beginning to ask what comes next.

The Good News

Being a food business has meant that raw chocolate is essential and so we're continuing to make, pack and ship as quickly as possible.

The Bad News

As much as we'd like to say we're completely unaffected, we can't. We're seeing issues with suppliers, some items being out of stock, some delayed and a couple of business closing (hopefully) temporarily.

This is meaning that our stock levels can be up and down. Some lines potentially out of stock for the foreseeable future (particularly many of our chocolate mould designs).

Courier and postal services are also seeing delays due to high demand.

Our real-world in-person events such as chocolate workshops and cacao ceremonies have had to be cancelled for obvious reasons.

Reduced Hours

Moving forward, we're reducing the days that we're in Woolley Wonkland to Tues, Wed and Thurs.

Please allow some extra time for orders to arrive and emails to be answered.

Manifesting a New Reality

One thing that both Paula and I are feeling is the call to slow down.

It feels like what's happening in the world is an opportunity for a global human reset!

The extra time away from work is going to allow Paula and I to explore what's going on in the world and within ourselves.

It's a chance to look at the Earth and our place in it. To see how we can become more of the solution. Explore how we can become more a force for positive change.

We'll be meditating

We'll have long walks in nature with our dogs

We'll continue to nourish our bodies and boost our immune systems

We're going on a digital detox

We'll sit in ceremony
