Christine Olivia Hernandez is an author, cacao ceremonialist, and guide who overcame early adversity to create a life of embodied service as a fully liberated woman. She is an influential leader and is widely recognized for empowering others, from minority communities and indigenous women's collectives to A-list celebrities.
Her book A Child of Magic as well as the adapted screenplay Lana Livia and The Ancestral Magic are both based on her own journey of remembrance, serving as a reminder to reconnect with the innate magic within and around us.


After her father took his own life, Christine felt she lost a part of herself that she’d never be able to connect with again. Soon after, she discovered Mayan cacao from Guatemala. While there, she reunited with her heart, ancestry, and ancestral plant medicine. She felt a clear connection and a deep knowing that she was meant to work with cacao ceremonially, not only for her own healing but for the healing of the world. Ever since this discovery, she has been sharing cacao in ceremony through The Maltyox (Gratitude) Method and her stories with communities worldwide.


Having established herself as a facilitator for healing and transformation within many communities, including Poosh Wellness, Alo Yoga, and countless masterminds, Christine has taken what she has learned to author her next book — a guide for readers to experience full self-liberation through harnessing the power of gratitude.

“You are a child of magic. One day you will forget and then remember who you truly are. Thus you will shine with brilliant light, reminding others of their inner radiance,” said Pachamama. “All in right timing.”

About Me

After recognizing my connection to and passion for ceremonial cacao, yoga, and wellness, I realized that I was a magical being on the path to remembering.

My wish is to cultivate love and enrich others lives with sharing my gifts, my truth expression, and magical creations. To embody gratitude, the love, light, & magic and inspire others to do the same.

I hope with all of my creations I can inspire others to live in their truth and tap into their magic. ​
