The Despacho is a foundational ceremony in the cosmology of the Q’ero nation in Peru. Before they engage in any important activity, they offer a Despacho. The prayers are offered to Pachamama, the Mother Earth and to the Apus, the Mountain Spirits and to Vira Cocha their name for creator God. I remember my first Despacho Ceremony. It was as if someone lifted a shade and light came into my life. I was thrilled by this fun and colorful way to pray. The praying started with a white paper called the envelope of dreams folded into nine squares the magic of the 3 cubed. We prayed with Kintus – tiny bundles of leaves of flower petals. We put three leaves together intending to harness the power of three. Past, Present, Future; Lower World, Middle World, Upper World; Mother, Father, Child.
