Solstice greetings beloved community,

This month we offer you step-by-step instructions for creating a Spirit Renewal Despacho ceremony contributed by Robin Flynn, PMT sanctioned teacher. The intention within the creation of this ofrenda is to: radically purify the recipient's poqpo from internal and external hucha; seal any places within the luminous body that have become tattered or torn; once sealed, infuse them with renewing energies of sami sonqo, sami uma, kawsay, and k’anchay. This is considered an advanced practice and we encourage all of you who are called to add it to your healing rituals. Thank you Robin for your exquisite inspiration and example of making the lineage practices your own. 

We also recommend you rea d the following articles in the Writer’s Forum to enhance your understanding of the Spirit Renewal Despacho ceremony: Medicine for an Age of Endless Ache by Carolyn Chlebowski and On Suffering and the Kaliedoscope of Love by Rebecca Snyder.

New RESOURCES page on the THOTH website. You will find recommended sources to purchase Ritual Supplies, Music, Books and DVD’s. All of these resources are of the highest quality and directly related to supporting your Pachakuti Mesa Tradition practice. Please visit our Resources Page and tell us how you like it at cindy@heartofthehealer.org.

It is a great privilege to serve you! With gratitude,
Cindy, Michele, Marin and Amy

Featured Teacher

Gabriella Galvan is an avid student of the Great Mystery, which has expanded her awareness into the realization that every moment is a masterful teacher and part of the dreaming/quantum world that we all are steeped in, and have access to. Listening with awareness to the heartbeat of Pachamama, the whisperings of Spirit, and the pulse of the Cosmos, has brought her home within the tribal community of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, where she is joyful to be sharing these wisdom teachings for our future.

Gabriella has a zest for life, traveling to natural sacred places, and spends considerable time upon the belly of Pachamama, where she has found great healing and wisdom. In her free time she enjoys reading about anything that is esoteric, cutting edge science, otherworldly and everything about our Ancient peoples, Cosmos and Star Relatives. When she isn’t spending her time in quiet solitude, you can find her off on some adventure, living freely, and enjoying the experiences that this beautiful life and world have to offer. She currently lives in Brownsville, Texas, on the border of Mexico and a short drive to the beautiful waters of Mama Qocha, Gulf of Mexico, a place which holds much power and guidance for her.

Gabriella is available to travel should you want to sponsor her to come to your region. Learn more about Gabriella . Learn more about becoming a PMT sponsor .
We are pleased to extend a warm welcome to Sanctioned Teacher Barbara Hallnan, PhD . Barbara will be starting a new Five-part Apprenticeship hoop in East Aurora, NY next month.
