Please join Greg Iadarola and me as we sit in the balance between Father Sun and Mother Moon, and offer two Fall Equinox Despacho Ceremonies, sitting in gratitude for the beautiful Summer behind us and, with intention, calling in the bounty of the Fall season to come. The creation of a Despacho is a wonderful way to give Ayni, or sacred reciprocity, to all of our helping Spirits, seen and unseen. We give back with plant, mineral, animal, human made and sweet offerings that we have spoken our gratitude and prayers into. Then we create a beautiful mandala with our offerings and complete the offering by applying beautiful, colorful flowers! First we will gather at Stinson Beach on September 19th, bringing our Ceremony to Wilka Yaku Mama Qucha, the Sacred Waters of Mother Ocean. This event also finds us sitting upon the cusp of the Full Moon, and we will be performing a special water ceremony during this Ceremony, to honor Mama Yaku, Mother Water, so that she may feel our gratitude, our appreciation, our respect, our love, our prayer onto her. We are in transition to enter into the New Earth, la Nueva Tierra. Tomorrow's earth, a world of love, of Munay, has already been created in spirit. Yet it will not show itself amongst the fear, the panic and the manipulation. Mama Yaku is so important in this process of creating the New Earth. She is powerful because she is the mother of all emotions. She is like the oil in an engine. Without it, the engine cannot work properly. In this same manner, the breath of life is being created through the water. Mama Yaku is flowing and carrying with her the frequencies needed to move us forward into the New Earth. When: Sunday September 19th. Meet at 11:00am. Ceremony starts at Noon, completes around 4:00 Where: Meet in the Stinson Beach parking lot. Look for the flowers on top of my car! What to bring: Everything you'll need for a day at the beach---blanket, hat, water, sunscreen, beach chair and snacks. Any small offerings of plant, mineral, animal, human made and sweets and/or a hand written prayers or poems. These offerings will not be returned. Your voices, musical instruments and Medicine Songs! A Sacred item to collect the beauty and energies of the day, to place upon the Mesa, the Central Altar. This item will return home with you. Most important of all is to bring your intentions and prayers for this powerful time. Cost: Sliding scale of $10-20. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
