*********************************************

Elements of Cuti (Kooti) Despacho: Our prayers are laying in a bed of salt and hot peppers to combust the heavy energy that gives shape and form to the victim, to places of powerlessness and limited belief. The intent of our despacho is held in the horseshoe crabs who to me represent the ancient roots of these paradigms in our systems. Black feathers take our prayers into the darkness of the unseen to transform. The gift of the snakeskin holds all within, offering the medicine of shedding that which no longer serves us.

Elements of Ayni Despacho: A winged maiden holding a cornucopia of Mother Earth’s bounty sits at the center of our Ayni Despacho. She is surrounded by a corn husk frame representing the lineage of this tradition. An abundance of flowers overflow representing beauty. Our intent of gratitude is held in a small heart stone in the center so our hearts may open to receive the blessings of gratitude. The base of our despacho is held in red rose petals to honor Mother Earth, or Pachamama, and also contains seeds for the blossoming of our prayers. Sugar and corn were laid around the center to feed our intentions with fruitful sweetness.

AHO my friends! AHO!
