Gratitude & Thanksgiving Community Despach

November 9, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm

***ALL profits going to Sandy Hook Promise and River’s Edge Healing Center!!

Come join us for this special ceremony and creation of a sacred mandala full of our prayers, intentions, gratitude, beautiful flowers, candies, seeds and more to celebrate and appreciate all that we are thankful for in our lives and to honor our connection to Nature and our beautiful Mother Earth. This offering will be created based on the traditions of the Andes (with permission), of creating a Despacho, or sacred offering bundle that will then be burned in a fire to honor Pachamama, our Mother Earth and the Creator.

This ceremony is a wonderful, uplifting experience. Come share your positive intentions, gratitude and blessings for the Earth, your family, community and each other! We will also share prayers, medicine songs, drum journey and cleansing during this special event.

Children 10 and over are welcome with their parents. Please bring a special flower, candy or other sweets to contribute your own special offering.

Requested donation: $35 per person; children; free.
Event is 3:30-6pm; River’s Edge Healing Center, 5 Riverside Road, Sandy Hook, CT
