New Year’s Despacho Ceremony for Gratitude & Intention
Friday January 10th 6-8:30pm
Alison Birks
Take part in an ancient Andean ceremony of gratitude, reciprocity, and abundance. Set your intention for the New Year!  Alison Birks, a mesa carrier and seasoned practitioner of Andean mysticism, will lead us in a sacred “Despacho” community offering. A Despacho is a beautiful way to pray and give thanks to the “Pachamama” (Mother Earth) and to the Creator for all the abundance in our lives. Natural objects such as flowers, leaves, and candy are lovingly arranged by the ceremony leader into a beautiful mandala-like design. Participants will be asked to hold a “K’intu” or prayer bundle of three leaves and to blow prayers of gratitude and blessings into them. Each person will have the opportunity to put their K’intu into the Despacho with sacred intention and reverence. The prayer bundle is blessed and later buried in the earth or burned in a sacred Fire Ceremony. Please dress comfortably and be prepared to sit quietly. Chairs will be provided but feel free to bring a back support or a yoga mat if you wish to sit on the floor.
By Donation. Registration requested.
