Despacho Ceremony ~ Honoring the Autumn Equinox
Requested contribution: $20 Reserve your space here: No one turned away for lack of funds. If you wish to contribute another amount, please visit the home page, and scroll to the bottom left ~ you can use the DONATE button to contribute any amount you wish. Thank you! Potluck: 6:00 pm Despacho: 7:00 pm Contributions of natural objects for the offering are also welcome! In deep prayer for the healing of our world, and especially our Mother Earth, we will create and offer a beautiful Despacho, a nature mandala infused with our care and love. We will begin with a potluck dinner, and then create our Despacho, and offer it to the land. If you need to come late and miss the potluck, that is fine. Please plan to join us for the entire Despacho Ceremony, to honor the energy we create! The Autumn Equinox is a powerful time to offer Despacho, and we are blessed to be together with the community to make these beautiful offerings! I am blessed to have been given the Despacho ceremony as a practice by several elders and teachers in the Andes Mountains of Peru, where this tradition was born. This past year, when I asked my teachers how we western people can help to make change and bring healing in the world, they all said the same thing: make more offerings! And so, I am welcoming the power and beauty that this practice brings. Using flowers, seeds, shells, leaves, and other natural items, as well as decorative craft items, we collectively create a beautiful offering. It can be bundled up and burned, buried, or offered to the water. It can also be made directly on the land as an offering. Depending on the weather and the energy of the day, we will flow accordingly. For more information on Despacho Ceremony, please visit:
