Men and Women's Ayni Despacho and Fire Ceremony - sorry about the late notice.

  • Apr 27, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

A despacho is an Andean ritual offering or a gift of reciprocity for what we receive every day in our lives. The act of creating a despacho places us in right relationship (ayni) with Mother Earth (Pachamama) and the Mountains (Apukuna). The offering consists of natural items intricately arranged on paper (similar to a Navajo Sand Painting), then prayed over, infused with gratitude and thanksgiving, and lastly folded into a bundle(like a present to the Creator and the Universe) to be burned. See Photos of The Hawaiian Healing Despacho with my brother Bear.

The creation of a despacho is a way to give back through prayer, intention, and love. This reciprocal exchange promotes balance and interdependence with Spirit. It is proper to purify one's self and consecrate the ground before preparing a despacho. Each natural item placed in the despacho has a specific meaning.

The end result before folding into a bundle looks like a graphic mandala. When the bundle is burned, the prayers in the despacho ascend to the Spirits in the form of smoke.

We meet in the first grassy to the left as you enter the park closer to the beach side of the grassy area.

    Aloha all, If you are planning to come today please bring with you a light jacket and something to sit on (yoga mat, beach towel etc.). Also bring anything intention or something that you may want to release in the fire. Hope to see you all there! And again sorry about the late notice.
