The fall equinox is a time to pause + offer gratitude for our connection with nature.  The Despacho Ceremony is a perfect way to give thanks.

The Despacho is a flower ceremony and prayer bundle from the heart. 

This Andean practice makes offerings to the mountains, Mother Earth, and other spirits of nature in reciprocity, respect, and thanksgiving. 

It is a reminder of the connections we share with all beings, elements, spirits, and sacred places.

Join us in circle to honor + offer gratitude to nature by creating a shared Despacho.

 
No worries about being able to physically distance, this event will be held outside and limited to 6 people.
