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 October is an Honoring of the Corn. The intent of this prayer bundle is to honor the life-giving sustenance of one of the most sacred plants of the Americas - corn. 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. Not only will we be honoring the plant itself, but also the 'growing of corn' that results from the actions we take as we walk the Red Road of Life. In this sense as we honor the corn we also honor ourselves and the choices we have made that have brought us to this point in our lives. Come help us celebrate Mama Sara the Corn Mother and your own creative, life sustaining essence.
Feel free to bring additional items to place in the prayer bundle as Spirit calls you.
Although these are sacred ceremonies they are not connected with any organized religion. We work through the lineage of the Shaman of Peru and connect directly with spirit through personal experience. Any faith or belief system that you may have is welcome as long as you come with an open mind and are respectful of others.
Please do not come in an impaired state. Anyone arriving drunk or high will be asked to leave.
Please join with us in the spirit of community for your personal healing and the healing of All Our Relations.
