LIFE CHANGING DESPACHO ~ Release anything in 2020 that needs to GO!
We are hosting an outside wonderful “Despacho” ceremony on January 23rd. This ceremony is going to focus on releasing from 2020 anything that didn’t serve your highest purpose and bringing in 2021 with a fresh start. This is a beautiful sacred practice used in the shamanic community for many reasons. They are very powerful for bringing in new habits and releasing old ones. The beginning of the year is a perfect time to come together and build a Despacho.
We will perform this in an outside safe environment. All attending will have temperatures taken upon arrival along with hand sanitizer. Masks will be required during the entire event. This event will be subject to weather conditions that day. We will send an update in the case of inclement weather and will reschedule if needed.
To hold your spot Venmo $40 to 9199029506. Event fee is non-refundable.
When we work in ceremony such as the ayni despacho, we work at the level of the soul. A despacho is similar to a mandala or sacred creation as it holds symbolic elements and the prayers of the participants. As the shamans add the elements to the despacho, the vibration of the participants and the area raises. The despacho becomes a living prayer that brings energy shifts and healing. In the shamanic tradition, an ayni despacho is done with the intention to bring oneself and one’s community into right relationship with the natural world. It creates a sense of union, harmony and reciprocity with nature.
For the ayni despacho, the shaman begins with a large piece of white paper that will serve as a ‘wrapping’ for all the offerings. All ingredients have significance, and each receives prayer before being placed on the paper. Coca leaves or bay leaves are used to hold prayers. Sugar and various sweets bring sweetness and love to the prayers. Corn and other grains are used to nourish participants and the Pachamama (the Earth). All ingredients will be provided for you. Once all ingredients have been added, the shaman carefully folds the bundle into the shape of a square ‘gift’ and ties it. After a despacho is prepared, the shaman uses it to cleanse the energy body of each participant.
A practicing Shaman will walk you thru putting together this sacred work. This Despacho will help you set in place your intentions for your life. Using goals and resolutions you will be able to place them in the despacho so they can come to fruition. The despacho takes the form of a very beautiful offering bundle. A sequence of items is placed on a flat surface, each representing the dedication of some aspect of life, helping to bring back wholeness. The process itself is an opportunity to reflect for all who participate. As the ceremony progresses, all involved form “k’intus”, little groups of three leaves, and, with their own breath, place their prayers and offerings into these. They are then added to the ceremonial bundle. We will have everything you will need to create a group despacho. You can bring a note to the universe to add or anything burnable that you want to add to the despacho.
