To Live In Harmony And Be In Right Relationship With All Creation
A despacho (translates from Spanish into “dispachment” or “shipment”, a “sending off”) ceremony, is an offering of gratitude to Mother Earth or PachaMama, and is one of the most important of Andean ceremonies. The offering itself is a bundle of various small gifts, including shells, sweets, flowers, and coca leaves, that are attentively arranged, wrapped up, blessed, and burnt as an offering to Pacha Mama. When a despacho ceremony is performed we unify our connection with Mother Earth, God and the Universal Order. We put order into all aspects of our life whether physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or material and by doing so obtain a high level of vitality, courage, wisdom and passion. All those around us then share the new order and happiness received by fulfilling this offering.
