In this ancient, sacred ceremory, participants will collaborate to create a prayerful nature mandala that honors the Autumn Equinox.
Despachos are an ancient ceremonial tool that are practiced by many South American cultures to release prayers, express gratitude, ask for assistance and promote healing. This particular Despacho Ceremony will utilize the process taught in the Pachakuti Mesa Shamanic Tradition.
After ritualistically “opening” the five directions, participants will use natural and man-made objects to create a beautiful prayer-filled nature mandala. The Despacho is then bundled, used for ritualistic cleaning of the participants and “released” through burning, burying or placed in flowing water.
