Ceremony Circle


In these times of such rapid change it may seem that the world is out of balance. Structures and paradigms on which we have relied heavily and oftentimes unconsciously, are breaking down to make way for new holistic structures. It is a time of great opportunity to create balance in our lives through Ceremony.

Stepping out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life and stepping into the realm of the Sacred allows us to dream our new world into being. Through my multicolored Ceremony Services I offer earth based practices for healing, transformation and celebration of all life.

Sacred Ayni Despacho Ceremony:

For hundreds of years, the Laika, high shaman or wisdom-keepers from the Q’ero lineage of Peru, have used the Ayni Despacho Ceremony. Central to their cosmology is the understanding that the Universe is benign, and only seems predatory when we are out of balance. They believe that the world mirrors back our own state of Ayni or right relationship. Coming back into Ayni, allows the Universe to work on our behalf once again, restoring the flow of synchronicity.

When we work in Ceremony such as the Ayni Despacho, we work at the level of the Soul. A Despacho is similar to a Mandala or Sacred Creation in that it holds symbolic elements and the prayers of the participants. As the Shaman adds the elements to the Despacho, the vibration of the participants and the space raises. The Despacho becomes a living prayer that brings energy shifts and healing.
In shamanic tradition, an Ayni Despacho is done with the intention to bring oneself and one’s community into right relationship with the natural world. It creates a sense of union, harmony and reciprocity with nature. It is an honoring of the cycle of abundance and gratitude, shifting energy into balance, including your personal relationships at the highest level.

In expressing this intent, the Despacho takes the form of a very beautiful offering bundle. A sequence of items are placed on a flat surface, each representing the dedication of some aspect of life, back to the wholeness. The process itself is an opportunity to reflect for all who participate. As the ceremony progresses, all involved form “k’intus”, little groups of three leaves, infusing them with their own breath, their prayers and offerings and then add them to the ceremonial bundle.
 
For the Ayni Despacho, the Shaman begins with a large piece of white paper that will serve as a ‘wrapping’ for all of the offerings. All ingredients have significance and each receives prayer before being placed on the paper. Coca leaves or bay leaves are used to hold prayers. Sugar and various sweets bring sweetness and love to the prayers. Corn and other grains are used to nourish participants and Pachamama (Mother Earth). Once all ingredients have been added, the Shaman carefully folds the bundle into the shape of a square ‘gift’ and ties it.

After the Despacho is prepared, the Shaman uses it to cleanse the energy field of each participant. To close the ceremony, the Despacho is placed in a ceremonial fire, buried in the earth or released into the water.


Aya Despacho Ceremony:

An Aya Despacho is created to assist the deceased on their journey into the afterlife. In ceremony, participants create a seven-layered rainbow bridge to ease the process of crossing over. This Ceremony provides a safe environment for friends and family to process their grief together, connecting to the ancient wisdom of this indigenous tradition rooted in archetypal energies.

How to create a Personal Altar

Pick a special area of your home where you can set up your altar. This can be a corner of a room, a table or a nightstand. There is really no one “perfect” place for your altar, the point is to find just enough space where you can place your key items and be able to sit near them on a daily basis.
Set an intention for your personal altar that describes the purpose you have for the space. A good question to ask yourself is: What do I want to bring MORE of into my life? Love? Peace? Joy? Abundance?
        

Examples:
Meditation
Inspiration
Health
Peace
Healing
Remembrance
Love
Protection
Abundance
Career
According to your intention, choose objects that inspire you and represent your Highest Self. Again, there are no “right” or “wrong” items for your altar, so just trust your intuition and allow yourself to be led to the ones that resonate with you the most.
     

Suggested items:
Candles
Fresh flowers or herbs
Inspiration Stones
Crystals (especially Amethyst or Quartz)
Photos of people you love
Printed literature that holds special meaning for you (such as poems, song lyrics)
Elements of nature (such as seashells, coral, stones, feathers, etc.)
Bells or chimes
