Fall is the time when trees let go of their leaves and pull in their energy so they can nourish their roots. Is a cycle in your life coming to a close? Is there something you need to let go of in your life? Just as the trees let go their leaves in a beautiful show of color and celebration, let us come together in a beautiful ritual and build a community Despacho as we let go of what no longer serves us.
On September 25, we will be about midway between the Autumnal Equinox - a day of near perfect balance between the dark and light - and a new moon (or Dark Moon) occuring on Saturday, 9/28. In many traditions, the days of the waning moon is not a time to start new projects but the time to finish them up. A time to release what's not working in your life so you can move forward.
Previously, the gentle Ayni Despachos we did were about balance and reciprocity. This time, I will be facilitating a Kutti Despacho which is for releasing heavy energies that weigh us down. A few days later, I will be burning the Despacho (hopefully on the night of the Dark Moon) which will combust the energy quickly. The energy shifts from doing the more intense Kutti Despacho works deeply to move out heavy, stuck situations.
Please wear dark clothing and bring a dried chili pepper to represent a heavy situation you're ready to release into the Kutti Despacho. All other materials are included; please register in advance so there's enough for everyone.
