This special 3-hour class will introduce participants to the Andean tradition of "despacho," a sacred practice used to encourage healing and harmony. Instructor Jennifer Sadhana has been apprenticing as a Shamanic Practitioner since 2011 (Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom Traditions) and is a graduate of the Four Winds Society School of Energy Medicine (High Andean Traditional Shamanism) and an Apprentice of don Oscar Miro Quesada and the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of Universal Shamanism. During this class, Jennifer will introduce students to Andean shamanic traditions and the traditional Andean view of the cosmos. Participants will then learn about the importance of the despacho ritual and its representation of sacred reciprocity within the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition. Students will also participate in creating their own despacho - a beautiful mandala created with flowers and imbued with prayerful intention - to be offered as a healing for a person, community, or the Earth. Registration Required  -  $35
