Ostara. Spring Equinox Grandfather Ceremony, Sat, 23rd March, 10am-10pm
Aho invites you to mark this Spring Equinox, also known as Ostara where we will be in Ceremony with grandfather (Wachuma) in a beautiful land in nature with sacred fire at Berkeley Farm honoring the spring’s warmth, light from the sun, and the awakening of the earth.
In Ostara, the Celts and other pagan people celebrated the beginning of spring in all its glory. Ostara is a time to honour the balance between the Goddess and God. The Goddess represents the earth, fertility, and new beginnings, while the God represents the sun, warmth, and growth. We will honour them by creating an altar with symbols of spring, such as flowers, eggs, and seeds.
Hosted by Renato Guerrero an alchemist and andean medicine man from Chile who has extensively held space and facilitated plant medicine ceremonies in the uk and around the world.
Grandfather (Wachuma) is an Andean cactus used for generations to bring heaven to earth, that is, to generate awareness. It leads us to connect directly with our own divinity.
Wachuma is a sacred cactus native to the Andean mountains. It has been used for over 4,000 years to heal and expand consciousness and administered in a ceremonial context, it provides profound healing and offers a transformative experience.
Wachuma is a tool for meditation and self-awareness, which helps to cleanse wounds from the past and allows for a more heart-centered way of being. It can bring limiting thoughts and beliefs to the surface of consciousness; what no longer serves our highest good has a chance to be released.
Through the purification and balance of the body, mind and spirit, it facilitates the expansion of consciousness and gives rise to a greater lightness in our life experience. Freeing ourselves from our limitations helps us feel a greater sense of well-being, love and affinity for others, and a deeper connection to Mother Earth and the Universe within and without.
It is ideal to connect with the heart and get out of limiting thoughts. It helps us to recognize our own limitations and increases the capacity to feel an awareness of love.
