SHAMANIC WISDOM SERIES PART 2 ~ Deepening Your Walk With Gaia/Pachamama & Ceremonial Reverence
~ Apacheta Building & Journeying with the Lands
~ Ofrendas and Despachos
~ Self Awareness
~ Ayllu~Family and Communal Meal
~ Transformational Fire Ceremony and Burning of Despacho
~ Re-membering our Wholeness
As we become more familiar with our sentient world around us, we become aware of the desire to be in right relationship, and more intimately connected, with Gaia/Pachamama. Shamanic Wisdom Series Part 2 allows for our continued shamanic path and earth walk to further expand with these simple, yet profound teachings.
In these 2 days you will grow in ceremonial reverence as you learn how to create your own apacheta or stone cairn, participate in a despacho ceremony, experience the community of our ayllu-extended family, and participate in a transformative fire ceremony under the heavens.
The timing of this gathering is potent: We will honor the cycles of Gaia/Pachamama with our despacho at the Spring Equinox ~ a balance of day and night ~ and will focus our intention to create alignment of balance in our lives. We will be nurturing of new life within ourselves, our family and community, and all sentient life.
Practices and rituals offered in this workshop are shared with permission from the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of Cross Cultural Shamanic Arts, and traditional lineages of Peru highlands, and northern coastal regions. They are based upon Mona’s extensive trainings and travels in Peru and Ecuador, and her direct encounters from the shamans, curanderas, curanderos, Q’ero, and the Lands of Pachamama.
The schedule for this workshop is as follows:
Day 1: Saturday, March 19, 2016 – 11 am-4 pm (ending time is approximate)
~~ Call in the Seven Sacred directions and Consecrate the Lands for our Ceremonial Connection.
~~ Shamanic Journey to call for guidance in manifestation of the group creation, and care for the existing community apacheta that was built at the Center for Human Development in June 2015.

~~ Self Awareness & return journey to your “Inner Shaman” – Further your indigenous wisdom and guidance with personal and environmental balance and maintenance in your daily life. Tools and skills will be offered for the utilization of this self awareness. Participate in discussion and, a shamanic journey with your earth star chakra and the sentience of the new Gaian consciousness, providing you with a stronger embodied connection.
