Peruvian Shamans Coming to The Stone Church

Condor and Eagle Fly Together

A Community ceremony of healing, connection and manifestation with Don Francisco and doña Juana, master shamans of Peru  

Event is June 30th, 7:30 PM

(Various offerings in Keene area and Maine May 17-29 include a 3-day workshop, individual sessions and more group ceremonies)

The Q'ero elders see the Condor as  the energy of the Andes, connected to the heart.  They see the Eagle as the energy of North America, connected to the mind.  As we connect and fly together, the power of the mind unites with the love and passion of the heart, and it becomes possible for our greatest passions to reflect our soul  purpose.  This is true for the individual, and it is true for societies as well.  Just as we seek to rediscover (and spread) the heart energies that are often well hidden in our communities, the Q'ero people seek the Eagle.  For them, the technology and know-how that is second nature for us -- once united with the ancient ways --  is a gateway to abundance and a better life.  What better sendoff could there be for our guests as they prepare for a very literal flight -- their long journey home -- than to connect  them with us in a ceremony of healing, gratitude, abundance and celebration.

The despacho ceremony is the core energy work of the Andean "paqos" (shamans).  It is a beautiful mandala, joyfully crafted to hold the energy of our Universe in "ayni" (perfect relationship and alignment).  Given to a ceremony fire (not part of our evening) is a feast for our provider Mother Earth, and the sweet prayers of vision, gratitude and love go out to the Universe.  Don Francisco and doña Juana are masters of this traditional ceremony.

Note: Personal healing sessions and manifesting ceremonies, as well as a three-day workshop (connecting our passion and purpose as we create a traditional Andean medicine bundle) are being offered in the Keene, NH, area. Call or e-mail for full details)

Note: Please plan to arrive between 7:20 and 7:30.  The Church hosts another event until 7:00, and we need to start promptly in order to finish by around 9:30. 

Fee is $25 prepaid, $30 at the door

Please make checks payable to DIVINE WITHIN and send to: 
Ed Liebfried, 94 Partridgeberry Lane, Swanzey, NH 03446. 

We also accept PayPal registration (please add 3% fee) to ed.liebfried@gmail.com
