Smiling Shaman Presents Day of the Dead Ceremony

Jennifer Craig

In honor of The Day of the Dead, Jennifer Craig, known as the Smiling Shaman, will present a free Ayni Despacho Ceremony demonstration at 11 a.m., November 3, at the Inner Peace Holistic Expo, in Hamburg. The Peruvian gratitude bundle ceremony provides a beautiful platform for “remembering, honoring and celebrating friends, family and pets who have gone before us,” says Craig. Within a powerful and sacred space of intentional and prayerful gratitude offering, and with the flavor of The Day of the Dead, it promises to be “a fun, colorful and celebratory event,” she enthuses.

Before and after the ceremony, Craig will be available to answer questions about the Earthkeeper Rites she has received and the Peruvian healing energy medicine and ceremonies that she practices. Her booth will feature photos, videos and stories of her travels and studies in Peru, from the Andes Mountains in the South to the Amazon Jungle in the North.

She will offer abbreviated decoupling sessions to give attendees a brief but powerful experience of the healing modality she learned from her studies of the Mountain, Coastal and Jungle Energy Medicine of Peru.

Ayni Despacho Ceremony is free. Expo admission: $7/per day or $10 for both days. For more information, visit or reserve a seat at For information on the Inner Peace Holistic Expo, visit
