Seeking What the Heart Holds Sacred: Making an Andean "Despacho" and Walking the Labyrinth

  • Living Room Yoga 1328 Chestnut St Emmaus, PA, 18049 United States (map)

There is a traditional practice in Peru of preparing despachos or prayer packets, which include symbolic contents. In this workshop, we will make our own prayer packets by substituting similar items from our own culture. We will set intentions and prayers by selecting items that hold special significance to create a package made from artful paper and other exquisite materials. We will complete the activity with a guided indoor walk on a canvas labyrinth, a calming meditation tool. Please feel free to bring photographs or representations of people you may be praying for, a bit of soil from a place that is special to you, herbs, flowers, or any small items that hold personal symbolic meaning.
