It takes a village
People come from near and far to create this amazing village. Wood is unloaded, fires are built, tents are set up...and anticipation builds as the Ritual Team prepares to honor this mountain, having fasted and purified themselves, setting off at sunrise to rattle, chant and dance their way around this great being until the wee hours of the night. The next morning, the Ritual and Support Teams ascend this sacred mountain bringing the offerings to petition for the beneficial weather in the growing season ahead. In the fall, we return to give thanks, honoring the cycle of sacred reciprocity, and humbly expressing our gratitude for the harvest. We invite you to join us!
