UPDATE for our HARVEST FULL MOON DESPACHO CEREMONY! The weather forecast for Stinson Beach on Sunday the 24th calls for anywhere from 60 to 90% chance of rain. Gracias gracias gracias Mama Yaku! 🌧☔️🥰 ¡Ajó! With this in mind we are going to activate a “plan B” location for that day's Despacho ceremony. We will meet at Robert Crown Memorial State Beach in Alameda instead. TIME: 11am - 4 pm PDT LOCATION: Robert Crown Memorial State Beach, Alameda, CA https://goo.gl/maps/NTzR8pDf2iAywKnFA If it's not raining, we will meet in the parking lot (look for the flowers on top of Greg's car!) 🌹🌻💐🍂🌸🌼😃 If it's raining, walk to the Pavillion....you will see us there! Dress warmly. It'll be chilly. We fall back upon Robert Crown Memorial State Beach when it rains because it offers a covered pavillion where we can hold Ceremony, be dry, and have access to the waters of the Bay! Greg Iadarola and I apologize for any inconvenience this change causes, and ask you to please rest assured that we will be returning to Stinson Beach as soon as the weather allows. Thank you for your understanding! With this Full Moon we will offer blessings and healing to the water. Respectfully, we will call the elements to return to balance, both externally and internally. We will also call in the consciousness and energies of this remarkable time, a time in which we learn to awaken our Sacred Heart with love and compassion, and to stand in our Sovereign power. The teaching of the Sacred Heart is, above all, a teaching of empowerment and balance, the central balance point of our Being. Bring your prayers and intentions for this sacred time, offerings for the Despacho, music makers (drums, Zampoñas, Bombos, flutes, rattles, bells, etc) and songs. 🎼🥁 Also, anything you need to be comfy on the beach (weather is projected to be in the 60's), and perhaps some snacks to share! To RSVP or ask any questions you might have please email Greg at: Karma_Kunzang@outlook.com We are asking for a small exchange of Ayni, $10-$20, although no one will be turned away for lack of funds. 🙏

  •   Coyote Hills Regional Park, Patterson 1065 Dam, Fremont, CA, USA

You and yours are invited to join Greg Iadarola and me as we honor and celebrate the New Moon with a Despacho Ceremony. Coming out of the Fall Equinox, October's New Moon is appropriately in Libra, as we sit in balance. We are being offered a new beginning. We can re-set and re-align with the new incoming energies of unconditional love, which will allow us to step into our integrity, our honesty, our Highest Most Illuminated Self. It is a time of taking action, using our voices, our gifts, yet doing it all with kindness and compassion. Avoid partaking in anyone's drama. See it for what it is... his/her drama, not yours. This New Moon provides us with the ability to move forward with laser sharp focus, "one step at a time." (Isn't there a song about this?) :-) Find joy and humor with-in and with-out, and give yourself time to step into stillness and balance. Bring your prayers and intentions for this sacred time, offerings for the Despacho, music makers and songs. Also, anything you will need to be comfy at the park, and perhaps some snacks to share! We look forward to sitting with you all. To RSVP or ask any questions you might have please email Greg: Karma_Kunzang@outlook.com We are asking for a small exchange of Ayni, $10-$20, although no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

  •   Stinson Beach, CA, USA

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.

  •   Muir Beach, CA, USA

Please join Greg Iadarola and me at a Despacho Ceremony celebrating the beautiful New Moon in Leo on Sunday, August 8, at Muir Beach, CA. This New Moon arrives on the same day alongside the opening of the Lion's Gate portal. This Ceremony will also be acknowledging the opening of the Lion's Gate portal, also known as the infinity gate. We mindfully align ourselves with the flow of creation and connect to the new heart-based behavior that we are modeling for the new Earth. We choose to stand totally in the present moment, to live only in the present moment, so that we can move through the Lion's Gate without being pulled away by old energies of anxiety, depression, unfulfilled desires, anger, etc. It is the time to release all that is preventing us from stepping into our sovereign power and realizing our full potential. We offer to Grandmother Moon all that does not serve us and ask for her assistance in bringing in pure love, compassion and Light! Two questions to ponder: 1) Have you released the past and your attachment to the past? 2) Have you released the future and your expectations of the future? Bring your prayers and intentions for this sacred time, offerings for the Despacho, music makers and songs. Also, anything you will need to be comfy at the site and perhaps some snacks to share afterward! To RSVP or ask any questions you might have please email Greg: Karma_Kunzang@outlook.com

  •   Robert Crown Beach, Alameda, CA

Nothing is coincidence. Everything is synchronicity. Everything is Divinely orchestrated. Email announcing ceremony didn't go out. Family emergency didn't allow Greg to co-host ceremony in Napa. Extreme fire danger warnings posted for weekend. In essence, I changed location of ceremony to Robert Crown Beach in Alameda with the intent of balancing water-fire elements and honoring the re-birth process we are in. I was alone to do this Despacho amongst many families enjoying their day at the beach. The children were so interested. Parents didn't seem to mind them being around me observing and listening to my singing, and I'm tone deaf so you can imagine! :-) As I began folding the paper, it broke open. Not from the sides, but right on the bottom. Whaaat??? I've not ever seen this happen before. Everything began falling out. So I pulled it together as best I could, wrapped it with the base layer of manta (cloth), picked it up like a newborn baby and carried it into the ocean with me against my chest. Surprisingly (or not...), the water was not even cold. It felt warm against my skin. I felt so happy, so blessed, filled with love. I gently allowed the contents in the manta to fall into Mama Qocha, offered prayers of gratitude and unconditional love to her and Mama Pacha, and watched as all the flowers spread and listened to the joyful screams and laughter of the children as they saw the flowers washing up the shore. It was an amazing moment. One I'll never forget and cherish forever. I felt such peace, such bliss, such a balm of healing for my heart which had been broken. To top it off a beautiful sister wrote to me and said: "We are giving birth to a new Earth, a new humanity! Maybe that's why you couldn't wrap the Despacho yesterday and you were alone to give it to the water. Indeed the baby was born!"

Have you ever experienced any of these---personal trauma, family crisis (medical or relationship), severe illness or health problems, family or environmental crisis, self-doubt and inner confusion. If you answered "yes" to any one, you are not alone. This may be the one quiet step towards healing that you've been longing for. Savor a meditative state in which your body relaxes and begins deep healing at a cellular level. Sometimes no words need spoken, just sound, whose unique vibration and frequencies resonate within the body at different levels. Experience a Shamanic "limpia" (cleansing) to further support the body in healing.
