Despacho Community Ceremony of Gratitude




Linda Schaming

Linda Schaming, a graduate of The Four Winds advanced medicine wheel and the Eagle-Condor Council's Healing Intensive program, will conduct a despacho ceremony at 1 p.m., December 1, at Mella Luna Studios. This beautiful celebration of thanksgiving, inspired by sacred work of the medicine people of Peru, builds a physical representation of our gratitude—a mandala of thanks.

Every participant will take a hand in the construction of the despacho, adding layer after layer of symbolic ingredients, weaving strand upon strand of prayer and light, and with uplifted hearts, recount the riches of life with love. When completed, the despacho will be gifted to Mother Earth, or pachamama--to feed her, releasing powerful gratitude gradually and sweetly.

Cost is $20. Location: 9 N. Baltimore Ave., Mt. Holly Springs, PA. For more information, call Dawn Tule at 717-486-7823, email dtulemassage@yahoo.com or visit MellaLunaStudios.abmp.com.
