Summer Solstice Despacho & Fire Ceremony
Join in a celebration of summer and Mother Earth with a sacred ceremony led by shamanic practitioner and medicine healer Denise A. Kinch. Traditionally, in the Andes, a Despacho Ceremony is performed individually or communally after each earth cycle to renew and re-imprint the power of nature on our spiritual body. It connects us with the Universe and accomplishes perfect “ayni” (balance), not for us personally but for the well being of our Allyu (community). The Despacho is a gift or giveaway for the organizing principles of the Universe. The Despacho Ceremony, in its physical beauty, is a journey to the soul of nature, with the assistance of the spirit world. There will be a Fire Ceremony following the Despacho Ceremony. This ceremony is given freely with the wish that a donation may be given to Earth Harmony Sanctuary. This is a courtesy posting for the Earth Harmony Sanctuary:

What we're about

Our group seeks to provide a structure to link, support, collaborate with and expand the community of individuals and organizations in our area interested in learning and practicing the art of permaculture.

“To design ecologically sound, economically prosperous human communities guided by the ethics: caring for Earth, caring for people, and reinvesting the surplus that this care will create.”—Toby Hemenway

We also work with other permaculture groups in the region to strengthen and grow the New England permaculture network. We use the Meetup platform to announce events, discuss issues and share information.
