Summer Solstice Ceremony & Community Despacho

For this event, RSVP or inquiry DIRECTLY to Greg at:


Please join the Bay Area Redwood Ayllu of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition for a ceremonial Gratitude bundle - or a despacho.

This is to honor our beautiful father sun and our mother earth.

In a Despacho ceremony, we create a beautiful and balanced
mandala-like offering on a large piece of paper, placed on the ground. Then we fold it up and offer it through love and intention by giving to the moving waters. We use these ritual offerings to give thanks for the gifts we have received from the Pachamama, mother earth and Inti, our father sun.

WHO: You, your friends, your family.
WHEN: June 22 10:30 a.m.-12:00 noon. (one day after the longest day of the year)
WHERE: Goat Rock Beach, Jenner CA. Sonoma Coast State Park. Meet n the “north” parking lot.
COST: Free!

PLEASE BRING: An item for the Mesa (will be taken back with you), items for the Despacho (will be offered to the ocean), Music makers: rattles, bells, drums and an open heart!

WHAT TO BRING FOR THE COMMUNITY DESPACHO CEREMONY: Please bring natural items that will break down/are biodegradable.

FOR EXAMPLE: Feathers, blue cornmeal, tobacco, dried/fresh herbs, dried beans, small shells, small stones, small crystals, seeds, incense, colored confetti and or sprinkles, personally meaningful items, such as hand written prayers, poems or small crafts.

WHAT TO BRING FOR YOU: The weather can be a little unpredictable on the coast. With that said, bring layers, good shoes, perhaps a change of clothes. a towel and or chair, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, water to stay hydrated, snacks for yourself and/or to share.
