About the event
Make your prayers and a wish list using natural ingredients back to the elements of the nature in a beautiful, symbolic way with PAUL & NEELAM @ Cosmic Heart Gallery
In the ancient Andean traditions of Peru, a Despacho is a ceremonial offering to Mother Earth (Pachamama) and the Mountain Spirits (Apus). You could perhaps think of it as a focused, formal way to "despatch" or "ship" your prayers off to the powers that be. By expressing love and gratitude we manifest our intentions to attract more of that which we are grateful for.
Sometimes these ceremonies are performed to communicate a specific need: a healing; assistance in a birth; maybe the birth of a new structure, the success of a season’s crop, a marriage, an enterprise... Very often a Despacho is made for right relationship–among individuals, communities, families, or between man and Nature.
The Despacho takes the form of a very beautiful offering bundle. A sequence of items are placed on a flat surface in a mandala-like shape, each representing the dedication of some aspect of life, bringing it back to the wholeness. Each ingredient/ item placed inside the Despatcho is symbolic for example: sugar represents the sweetness in life, the herb sage would represent purification, grains represent abundance & sustenance, sweets represent fertililty…

The process itself is an opportunity to reflect for all who participate.
» The workshop will begin with creating a sacred space, offering prayers to the seven directions and bathing in the smoke of sage
» Learn how to make a Medicine Bundle (Pachamama Despacho) a bundle of prayers offering gratitude & reverence to our Earth Mother. Make your own personal Despatcho focusing on work, a relationship, a special healing for a loved one, protection, abundance… whichever aspect you would like to manifest with intent
» We shall end the day with a Fire Ceremony where we shall ignite the Despacho for transporting our prayers to Spirit
