Despachos are a practice from the shamanic culture of Andean Peru. They are sacred bundles that are assembled and given to the land as a way of giving back to the spirits. It is a strong belief in Andean Peru that if we do not give back for all of the things that we take that we may start to suffer in life because of the imbalance. It can also help in healing the precious home of the Earth. In this workshop we will learn about the practice of Despachos, the concept of sacred reciprocity (Ayni), and about the four families of spirits that watch over humanity to ensure that balance is maintained. We will cover specific directions for making three types of Despachos (improving health, attracting prosperity, and cultivating joy).
