Event description
Meet the Mountain: A Ceremony of Reciprocity and Gratitude to the Mountain—at SDC, with SMP Chair Meg Beeler

About this Event

POSTPONED UNTIL IT IS SAFE TO GATHER.

Join us in Eldridge (the former Sonoma Developmental Center) for a ceremony of reciprocity and gratitude to the mountain.

We will create an offering together—a living mandala called a despacho—to honor all that the Developmental Center has been. Invoking the land, history, residents, staff, wildlife, and community, our gathering is a way to give back and appreciate what lies ahead.

When you participate in this traditional Andean ceremony, the energy moves. You make space for the new; you reconnect in ways that can carry you forward in these times of change. It is a wonderful way of focusing your intent and giving back to the Earth. It is a gift to the universe.

The ceremony will be led by SMP Chair Meg Beeler, who has been creating despacho ceremonies on Sonoma Mountain and around the world for 25 years.

Park and meet just beyond the bridge at SDC, next to the Lake entrance and south of Regional Park parking at 10am. Easy, fairly level walk to the creek, where we’ll sit. Bring water, hat, snack, appropriate layers for all possibilities, and a camp chair to sit on. No ceremony experience necessary; children over 12 welcome. No restrooms available. Rain cancels. Maximum 20 participants (no pets please).

NOTE: IF YOU WANT MORE THAN 1 TICKET, PLEASE INDICATE NUMBER AND LIST ALL NAMES NEXT TO YOURS. THANKS!
