Welcome to: Ayni Through Community, Creativity & Compassion: The 2024 Kuntisuyu Community Gathering!
Mount Madonna Center, Watsonville, Ca August 8 -11th, 2024
Hosted by the Kuntisuyu Council: Susan Bragg, Christine Comaford, Renée Davenport, Greg Iadarola, Tina Tedesco & Heather Weingartner.
Please join us for a weekend of deepening into the medicine of sacred reciprocity as a creative and unifying expression of community devotion, gratitude and love. Mount Madonna Center, located in the Santa Cruz Mountains and overlooking the Monterey Bay, is a spiritual community, school, conference and retreat center, founded in 1978 by Baba Hari Dass and his students. The 380 acres of redwood groves, hiking trails and meadows are infused with Mamapacha's (Mother Nature's) essence and the pristine presence of the Unseen nature sprits, guardians and beings that make themselves known in places of undisturbed natural beauty. This retreat is an opportunity to gather in appreciation for the Earth, our community, and our sacred lineage of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, and to express our heart's gratitude for simply being alive during these potent times of Great Change. Our gathering is designed to create and sustain connections of love, trust, joy and generosity between ourselves and our community, Pachamama and the All That Is through the gifts we have each cultivated as shamanic practitioners, healers and ritual artists.
High Ceremony for the purpose of aligning ourselves with the frequencies of munay (love) and k'anchay (light) as earth stewards and embodiments of sacred reciprocity.
