Despacho is the Spanish word for 'dispatch'. A Despacho is a prayer bundle created in ceremony by one or more people for a specific reason or with a specific intent. The ceremony is officiated by a medicine person or shaman and is the most common traditional ceremony of the mountain people of the Andes. There are many, many kinds of Despachos. In keeping with the season the Despacho for the month of September is in gratitude for the Bounty of the Harvest. The intent of this type of prayer bundle is to send honor and gratitude to all growing things and the spirits of the land they grow on - the Santa Tierra Madres of our green places - as well as the water, soil and sunlight used for their growth. This connects us with the essence of life that sustains us on our earth walk and is in keeping with our role as stewards of the Earth Mother - the Pachamama. Feel free to bring additional items to place in the prayer bundle as Spirit calls you.
This particular despacho will travel with me to the Gathering of the Shaman in Yachats, OR and burned in the Global Vigil Fire.
