A Healing Harvest Despacho

A Chilean medicine woman taught me the ritual of making Despachos as a way to honor and give thanks for life on earth. It’s what the word “despacho” means: dispatching or prayerfully putting our thoughts and actions back into our mother earth.

While this exercise is for a Harvest Despacho, you can vary the intention with the season. For example:

Spring - what you want to bring forth

Summer – how you feed yourself during times of growth

Autumn – what you want to let go of; giving thanks for what you have garnered within the year

Winter – the need to hibernate; to draw within; to envision what you want to plant in the Spring

There are no rules, so feel free to adapt this ceremony according to your own personal needs and beliefs. I find it very meaningful and am thankful for the opportunity to share it with you.
