Rosario Sykes & Karen Ambrogi

Rosario Sykes & Karen Ambrogi instructs the following:
  • Winter Solstice Despacho Ceremony
  • Join us in welcoming the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year and shortest day; It can be a time to rest curling up by a fire or noticing a peaceful sort of silence as you walk in the woods, and reflect in the great stillness; the darkness itself is the spiritual cradle into which Father Sun is reborn and begins a new solar cycle. A time for setting our intentions to gain momentum in spring.

    This is a heartwarming tradition from the Andes of Peru. Performed as an offering of thanksgiving for blessings received. We will engage in sacred Ayni in a spiritual act of reciprocity and with much reverence and joy. We will honor Mother Earth, the mountains and other spirits of nature with a feast of love and gratitude and connect heaven and earth to remind us of the oneness we share with all beings, elements, spirits, and sacred places.

    No experience is necessary. Bring an open heart and a friend. Mesa carriers bring your bundles. You are welcome to charge a sacred object in our Mesas. Please bring a rattle, drum or tambourine to play along and raise the vibration. We are looking forward to seeing you and sharing sacred space. Light snacks and drinks.

  • The Nine Sacred Munay-Ki Rites
  • Join us for a beautiful journey as we share the wisdom and power of the Sacred Munay-Ki Rites. Transforming lives to live free of fear calling us to step up to the task of assuming stewardship of Mother Earth and all creation.
    The Munay-Ki are nine initiation rites distilled by anthropologist Alberto Villoldo from his work and experiences with the shamans of the Amazon and the high Andes Mountains to share with the modern world. The rites are a nine step process to heal wounds of the past, and through healing we are then free to become who we truly are and better able to navigate our destiny and assist humanity to create a world of harmony. These rites are not only stages of initiations but perhaps steps for the evolution of humanity.

    The Munay-Ki rites are not ego-awards or recognition of any kind of achievement, nor do they make anyone special. On the contrary, they make one uniquely unimportant, only then, from a position of no-ego can we truly be of service. As you received these seeds you will work in their germination for thirty days and nourish them with the element of fire.

    The rites are given as energetic transmissions, passed on by others who have received the nine Munay-Ki rites. As the elders of the Andes and Amazon say, "We are planting seeds."
