All Soul’s Mandala: a despacho to honor our ancestors

November 3, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Inspired by the Q’ero Indians of the high Andes of Peru, this despacho ceremony is a practice of gratitude. Together, we will create a mandala of blessings for all of our ancestors– those from our families, spiritual traditions, and other arenas. By honoring our lineages and the gifts we’ve inherited, we re-enliven their wisdom and carry it forward. Our mandala will be made from candy, flowers, and other symbolic tokens, and later dispatched to the elements. This practice is peaceful, heart-centered, non-denominational, and a lovely alternative or addition to Dia de los Muertos, Samhain, and All Souls Day. All are welcome and materials will be provided. Space is limited; pre-registration strongly recommended. Children under 12 free if accompanied by an adult (please note their attendance in your registration).
