Spring Equinox and Despatcho Photos
This Despatcho was full of sweetness and colour, a mountain of flowers for the season. We used gingko leaves for the kintus (prayer leaves), a golden radiance in the second picture. If you look in the third photo you'll see the little Peruvian candy figures, green and gold, which added extra deliciousness to the offering to Pachamama!
Our focus was on breaking free of old ways of thinking. Where do we want to focus our energy, power, inteligence? This is a time of new beginnings, and we can inspire others through our example. We broke open the earth for a new fire pit, and ringed it with flower petals. The stars were absolutely right with us during the Fire ceremony marking the Spring Equinox, the time of equal day and night.
