Winter Solstice Despacho
June 21, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
To Celebrate the Winter Solstice, we join at Brightlands Retreat to hold a Despacho & Cacao Ceremony
Despacho is like a three dimensional offering, a haiwaricuy or offrenda, to our Earth Mother and to Life. It is a beautiful way to come together as a group and blow prayers onto Kintus (leaf bundles) and place these together, as the shamanic practitioner adds nourishments to the prayers and releases them to spirit realm in a bundle that goes into the fire. Prayers are for the Earth, the collective and oneself. Despachos also help refresh the imprint of Nature onto our luminous body as we cultivate relations with her through ceremony and prayers. Cacao ceremony can be added to this.
