Solstice Dreaming Despacho and Fire Ceremony
Join us in creating a Dreaming
Despacho. Add your dreams—for the earth
and your own path—to help them
manifest…We gather for this ceremony in honor of the Solstice, our longest day
We will meet in our Medicine Wheel portal, on private land
at the base of Sonoma Mountain at 2:00
PM on Sunday, June 22. We will feed the power of the despacho with our
personal and collective intent, receive its sweet blessing, and offer it to the
fire, sending our dreams and prayers out to the cosmos in the smoke of
transmutation. Afterwards, well share a potluck meal and revel in the beauty
surrounding us, finishing about 7 PM.
is a way of bridging, and making connection outside of our small groups, our
small worlds. Ceremony lets us experience the power of focused energy, the
power of group, and the joy of shared intent.
This contemporary despacho
will follow traditional
Andean form, ingredients, and intent, and Eagle-of-the-North practices for
group engagement, connection, and focus. No prior experience necessary (and if
you have it, bring it!) Creating this ceremony in reciprocity is a wonderful
way of focusing intent, giving back to the Earth and spirits, and being
together. And in gifting our dreaming, we align with a different story, shift
our perceptions, and help create the world we want to live in.
To prepare: Try using the phrase “I see a
world…” as you decide which dreams you want to bring to the offering. Reflect
also on your three power centers of belly, heart, and third eye, and how they
might relate to your dreams and intent.
Bring: two small burnable objects that
symbolize your dreams for the earth and yourself; one ribbon about 12 inches
long, representing your path into the future; water; a chair if you need one;
layers; hat; potluck dish to share for dinner. Well be outside the whole day;
dress appropriately for sun, wind, and full moon.
Dreaming, Vision and Intent Guboo Ted
Thomas, Yuin Aboriginal tribal elder (1901-2002), describes the Aboriginal
“Dreaming…starts outdoors in
a very quiet place where there is no noise and where the wind is blowing. Here,
all around are Nature Spirits…I would talk to you and be in the spirit of the
land and bring that spirit here (gestures to interviewer’s heart). After
walking in the woods for some time, you would dream and spirits would visit
your vision. Yes, you would see these spirits and they talk with you…The
dreaming is a way to be in the change of this world...I do not teach the
dreaming. The mountain teaches the dreaming. Uluru.”
vision of this time is not one of change but of mastering the arts
of creating wholeness through connectedness: connectedness within ourselves,
between each other, and between humans and the world around them. –David
Seeds for Earthkeepers: the Nine Initiations of Munay-Ki
You are invited to receive the profound energetic transmissions of Munay-Ki over the course
of nine months in 2014. The transmissions are portals to becoming beings of wisdom and power who accept stewardship for all
Our time together will offer you an immersion in the mystical side of Andean cosmology.
We'll explore the use of intent, alchemy, reciprocity, and energy, along with oral wisdom teachings, healing practices, and
tools for transformation, as we nurture these "seeds of homo luminous" given to us by the Q'ero/Inca and other peoples of
the Andes. We will also have time to connect deeply with and learn from nature as indigenous people do the world over.
The intent of these transmissions is to help you see with heart, heal our earth, and increase
your energy for reconnecting to the web of living energy in these prophesied times of great change and opportunity.
We'll meet in our Medicine Wheel on Sonoma Mountain, on the fourth Sunday of each month,
from January to September 2014, beginning at 11 AM each day, and lasting 4-6 hours. Suggested donation each meeting, sliding
sale, $65 to $85. Email
If you wish only to receive the rites, and not the surrounding teachings, there
are a number of options in the Bay Area. If you wish to begin or deepen your connection with the indigenous Andean worldview
and cosmology, this nine-month series will fully support that. Meg has been studying, practicing, and deepening her heart
connection with the Q'ero for over 20 years.
Classes are a way to shift perceptions and learn tools that you can use
for your own development, healing, and "growing your seeds" of consciousness. My role is to midwife your expanded awareness,
your essence, your whole soul, and your luminous energy body, helping you move into vibrational alignment with your highest
self. I believe that our understanding of everything is deepened and enriched with embodied, experiential learning.
Ongoing Shamanic Groups
Last Wed. of each month
Shamanic Journey and
This group combines shamanic journeying for personal
and "world work" issues with the practice of transfiguration. We meet the last Wednesday of each month.
You need to know how to journey and have a desire to learn more to join.
We work and play with various methods of journeying, and explore how to formulate questions. I teach about transfiguration
and related Medicine for the Earth practices to transmute toxins inside and out. We apply these practices to places and issues
in the world, exploring how to bear witness with equanimity and love.
