TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; A Despacho ceremony will be held two times this week. The process is similar to the creation of a Tibetan sand painting and#8212; but instead of mixing up the sand, we will burn the Despacho and#8212; therefore transmuting the energy of all of our wishes and co-creating something new and amazing together.

Come to the Sacred Stone Center For Well-Being located at 10250 Donner Pass Road (behind the Exchange) in Brickelltown, downtown Truckee. Any time during these hours: Wednesday, March 30, 3-7 p.m. or Thursday, March 31, noon-4 p.m.

In light of the recent tragedies, both in our own community and in the world, we feel it would be tremendously healing for all of us to come together in both honoring the lives that have been lost, and in manifesting a new way of being for the future.

Please come to this and#8220;open-formand#8221; ceremony and add your intentions/prayers to the Despacho. We will provide the necessary ingredients, but feel free, if so inclined, to bring a small token you wish to be burned along with the Despacho (or prayer bundle). You are welcome to stay and meditate, light a candle, or just bask in the energy of the creative forces at work. You can spend five minutes or two hours: Itand#8217;s up to you.

We hope you will join us in creating this beautiful prayer bundle. All we ask for is your participation, your intentions in co-creating balance and right relationship in our community and beyond, and your open heart.

Guidance and explanation of this process will be provided!

Lynn Gibson: TBID means local control


I recently read an Opinion letter in the Sierra Sun that truly sparked my emotions and I felt compelled to respond to the biased misinformation I’ve seen printed about North Lake Tahoe’s proposed Tourism Business…
