Fire & Despacho Ceremonies

I offer regular public fire ceremonies and also can undertake a bespoke despacho ceremony for your own healing or to mark a life event or stage. See below for more info or please contact me to discuss

The images above are of a Despacho, created in the traditional Q'echuan way, being offerred to the River Thames and an offering of flowers to the River Frome in Stroud.

Fire Ceremonies
with songs and stories

My Fire Ceremonies are open to all: women, men and children. They take place out in nature and we create a sacred vortex. We meet the transformative energy of the sacred fire, where we celebrate our mother earth, sun, moon, stars, winds and all of creation. Join us for an enriching experience as we continue our odyssey looking at different faces of Goddess and God with seasonal story and song. More info.

We connect with natural spirituality,  we remember our ancestors and teachers of this land as well as globally.

We each bring a 'prayer stick' (ie a stick which we have picked up from the earth and which we may decorate but don't have to) and into it we blow our personal prayers while singing, drumming and rattling.

We also collectively offer a 'Pachamama stick' into which we blow our universal prayers. 

Feel earth energies rise up through us and exchange energies with the sacred fire as we come together in community.


Locations vary, but often in Sladebank Woods, Stroud


Next date TBA - please contact  me for more into.

Despacho Ceremonies

My despacho Ceremonies are both public and private, bespoke events that bring about healing, transition from what's come to an end to the next stage and celebration. Despacho is  an unparalleled way of harmonising energies: between people; between people and nature; within the psyche of the individual.

Beautiful Offerings to Spirit

Traditionally in the Andes, HEALING is mediated through Despachos, a type of medicine bundle which is offered to spirit either by being buried or released into water or burnt on the sacred fire. It is built with love and reverence and holds your prayers. In the Andean tradition you offer your gratitude in advance of receiving that which you ask. In south America 100,000,000 people use this ancient form of prayer and conflict resolution ancient every year.

Healing & Celebration

The despacho ceremony is often a healing process as well as a time of celebration. It honours where you are in your life and in relation to spirit. The despacho mediates RITES OF PASSAGE. Typically a despacho ceremony brings you into right relationship as you move into the next stage of your life.  Despacho can be used for many purposes : sacred activism, conflict resolution, harmonising energies, marriage, birth, death, naming, new job, dreaming into new ventures, personal healing, all types of personal transition

Sacred Space

Held in Sacred Space, fuelled by your intent, guided by me, and with the playful participation of all guests, the Despacho can be a deeply nourishing focus for ceremonies to CELEBRATE or mark any type of life change at any stage of life: puberty, menarche, menopause, marriage, childbirth, naming ceremony, retirement, moving home or job, divorce, death rites, birthdays and any other transitions or crossroads in life.


Ceremonies are tailor-made to your individual requirements, incorporating your own spiritual path as well as honouring sacred space. The bundles are made up with flowers, food, candles, sweets, incense, objects representing all of creation, and objects representing that which you want to release and/or invite into your life as well as that which you want to celebrate, honour and express gratitude for. At every stage of the preparation we can co-create a beautiful ceremony to suit the occasion.

Previous Despachos I have facilitated

Wedding Celebration Despacho - weaving in the vision of the couple with the well wishing of the guests
'Our Earthkeepers Despacho was deeply and profoundly beautiful - it felt as if we were aligning cosmic energies in preparation of the Mission and explicitly inviting in the gods and all the higher beings to fire up this star-ship of ours! Thank you from the very depths of our hearts - we shall treasure the day for the rest of our lives'
