Join Lucius Wheeler and Lisa Hendrick for this gathering of sacred community, in which we will create a Blooming Despacho in the tradition of the High Andes of Peru.
Despachos are offering bundles, assembled in sacred space and offered to Mother Earth (Pachamama) in gratitude with the request that we be blessed and guided on our life’s path. In the creation of this despacho we ask for new energy to fulfill our gifts, and to bring forth our beauty, strength and wisdom into every aspect of our lives.
Together, we will call upon Pachamama, the mountains (apus), and the spirits of the land surrounding us to help us to live in harmony and communication with them. In our prayers, we call upon the luminous weaving of our lives, and our interconnectedness with all of life. We ask for their assistance and the assistance of the Luminous Ones (allies & helpers) to help us grow seeds of new life, of new vision.
We also call upon the stars (Hatun Chaskas), the sun (Inti Taita) and the moon (Mama Killa) to shine their light upon us, guide us and strengthen us for this journey of our Becoming. We ask that the gateways and portals to Spirit be opened, so that we can live each day in alignment with Spirit and the guiding Ancestors who are awaiting with great joy and anticipation our requests for their assistance.
We will assemble the offering bundle together on Thursday evening. You are also welcome to join us for the burning of the despacho in a ritual fire the following evening. Location and details will be provided after the Thursday ceremony.
As the seasons unfold into spring, I welcome you to participate in this beautiful and powerful ritual of blossoming and aligning to our wholeness.

Please come well fed and arrive 10-15 minutes early to get settled and to be cleansed.
