The dance is based and inspired on a prophecy that emerged in the Qero Nation of the Andes of Peru, called the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor.
Sacred Sound Healing Ceremonies
Native tradition holds that there are sounds and songs that are printed in our memory–ancestral songs and sounds that serve to reconnect us with the true essence of who we are as well as everything around us. In these Sound Healing Ceremonies, we call upon the spirit of our ancestors through ancient instruments and various shamanic chants and songs. As the spirit of the sounds comes through, balance is restored to our mental, physical and emotional bodies, our self-awareness opens and expands, and we experience peace of mind and heart. This ceremony is a place/time to gather with a collective prayer for ourselves, all our relations and Mother Earth.
Duration: 1 ½ – 2 hours
Traditional Despachos (Earth-Offering Ceremonies)
The ceremony of Despacho or “Offering to Mother Earth” is a traditional ceremony of thanksgiving and prayer. There are many ways and approaches to performing this ceremony. The Q’ero Nation is one of the oldest communities in the Andes that maintain knowledge of it. Working with Q’ero elders, we share one of the most traditional forms of this ceremony. We strive to make it as close as possible to the way it was performed by our ancestors.
