Join us for a sacred Andean Despacho Ceremony in the tradition of the Q’ero peoples, from high in the Andean Mountains of Peru. Shamanic Practitioner Katherine Skaggs will guide us through this sacred gifting and bridging of ordinary reality with non-ordinary reality of the Spirit world. The despacho creates the space and place for right relationship, and right relationship with Pachamama, Mother Earth. Through this we bring healing to our relationship with all of our world. We will establish a linkage between our physical universe, our personal power and source of action (located in our solar plexus), our source of love (our heart chakra) and our wisdom (our third eye).
We will honor Pachamama and invoke her blessings, as well as Pachatata, to make an offering to the Sun and the stars. These two combined create a blessing ceremony to assist us in our every day lives to live in harmony in our world, as well as to invoke assistance from the heavenly realms to assist our planet, our humanity, to awaken and come into right relationship.
This ceremony will bring personal blessings, as well as global blessings. Your participation helps expand the energy through your presence.
Bring any offerings you would like to offer up to the fire and the despacho, such as dried flowers, nuts, seeds, cornmeal, small candies of bright colors, written prayers on small pieces of colorful paper, sugar, an open shell, rice, lentils raisins, animal crackers, black licorice, chocolate, sage or other incenses, gummy or candy frogs, play money, contain balls unraveled, confetti stars.
Each item you bring is symbolic and an offering for the intention of harmony and right relationship through gratitude. Your prayers are must important along with the other offerings that makes Mother Earth happy, as well as Father Sky.
We will create a healing packet, a gift, to offer to the fire made from all these items and our heartfelt love and appreciation.
