ANDEAN DESPACHO CEREMONY

Andean ceremonial traditions range far & wide with a vast array of teachings and practices. We connect you directly to authentic transmissions from the Q’ero Nation, rooted in the “haywayrikuy” ceremony, more commonly known as the “despacho.” This is an offering of plants, seeds, grains, sweets, & sacred elements given to the fire in honor of Pachamama (Mother Earth) & the Apus (mountain deities.) Each specific despacho hold a multitude of minute variations within its elements that symbolize deeper meaning and intention. By offering gifts to the Earth and our ancestors, we pay our respects and provide them sustenance, in this way they continue supporting our life in a fluid interaction of reciprocity.

(Your ceremony will be accompanied by an official translator that has extensive background with the Q'ero culture to provide unique perspective and insight to get more out of your experience.)
