Sunday Dec 17 – Solstice Despacho Ceremony, 3:30-6pm

Unitarian Universalist Church, 130 Concklin Rd, Pomona NY   $10-15 appreciated but not required

To honor the change of seasons– the darkest night of the year giving way to the return of the Light– we’ll gather to create a collective mandala, filled with our gratitude and sweet intentions. The Q’ero people of the Andes Mountains make despachos to celebrate the blessings that already exist and to bring the community into ayni, or right relationship, with the powers of nature. On Sunday, December 17, we’ll make our despacho together with gratitude in a meditative, sacred space. Using simple natural materials, we’ll build a microcosm of the world we’d like to see.
