Pachamamas Wisdom in person with christina pateros 10 29Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous peoples of the Andes. In Inca mythology, she is an Earth Mother and fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting.

Through ritual and ceremony—including guided shamanic journeying, we gather in community with sacred intention, celebrating the interconnectedness of all beings and our personal place in the living Cosmos. Through a daylong ceremonial council, we will each connect with a specific living Earth being, have a ceremonial mask-making session, and embody the wisdom of the beings. This is a highly experiential, creative, and active day of embodied ritual and ceremony. 

Come dressed comfortably for both indoor and outdoor time. Feel free to bring portable sacred or ceremonial objects for your own personal honoring place, as well as a communal altar. (All objects will be returned). Herbs, flowers, and other organic offerings are welcome for communal mandala creation. Personal art supplies are welcome for mask-making, though everything needed will be provided.
