My Renew PT healing team and I recently attended a powerful movie screening from Jeffrey Wium called Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino. This amazing experience is a direct transmission from the altomisayoks of Peru, one of the oldest non-broken healing lineages remaining on the planet today. In fact, the lineage of the Paqos of Peru has remained unbroken for nearly 13,000 years, so this movie depiction of their healerships is an especially unique and powerful experience. The film is in the original Quechua language, so the direct poetic sounds of the prayers of the Paqo hits you in the heart and plants seeds in your consciousness.
Jeffrey will be hosting the August 16, 2014 online film debut with Drunvalo Melchizedek and The School of Remembering. They will together perform an intro and question and answer about the film and then the online screening will take place. I highly recommend tuning in to this important film, with magnificent cinematography of the landscapes of the high mountains and also the never before filmed ceremonies from the graceful Altomisayoks of Peru as they perform ceremonies of reciprocity and reverence for the seen and unseen worlds.
Here is a short description of the movie from the PaqoAndino.com website
AN ECO-SPIRITUAL JOURNEY INTO THE HEART OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino is an inspirational, emotionally intimate documentary film revealing the heart centered, celestially guided lifeways of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition, one of our planet’s few remaining uninterrupted wisdom lineages.
Filmed on location in the Peruvian highlands, this unprecedented film takes us on a journey into the heart of an ancient earthkeeping culture to experience a way of life that is at once practical and mystical. It presents universally applicable insights into a state of being based on loving kindness, unconditional reciprocity, sustainability and the sanctity of daily life — the foundations of what is known as The Living Peace.
Like the groundbreaking films Koyaanisqatsi and Baraka, Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino is not narrated. As such, viewers receive a direct, unmediated experience of living with the Paqos, witnessing their heart-based intelligence and being touched by their active, reciprocal relationships with the conscious life force inherent within all aspects of the natural world.
This inter-cultural project has been created as a cinematic legacy to share humanity’s ancient, holistic lifeways and help inspire and revitalize modern, industrialized cultures at a time when unprecedented numbers of people find themselves out of balance with the natural world and seeking a deeper means of connection and renewal.
Altomisayoq (Alto-me-sigh-yoke), meaning one who embodies the prayers of the high altar, is a name given to Andean celestial Paqos by European chroniclers in the mid-16th century. These Paqos, or maestros of the Living Energy, who constitute the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition are not shaman. They comprise one of our planet’s few unbroken lineages of ancestral wisdomkeepers and spiritual intermediaries who have stewarded humanity’s heart wisdom, animistic consciousness and celestially integrated reality for over 13,000 years.
In 1532 during their maltreatment by conquest and inquisition forces, Andean Paqos found it necessary to retreat to remote, high-altitude locations to safeguard their practical and esoteric wisdom. By enduring the hardships of extended isolation and secrecy for the past 480 years, this ancient lineage has been able to maintain its unified cosmology while keeping its holistic lifeways intact.
Following the disruption of the Inkan civilization, fewer and fewer Paqos have been able to sustain the lineage’s high practices due to corruptive influences, mentorship die-off and a general lack of modern day apprentices willing to undertake the rigors of this demanding and resolute path. Presently, as foretold by oral history, the Apus, or mountain spirit benefactors, have begun recognizing and initiating western practitioners in order to expand the lineage, integrate cultures, restore humanity’s cognitive lifeways and increase spiritual responsibility among industrialized societies.
Praise for WISDOMKEEPERS, PAQO ANDINO:
“Not only was the cinematography amazing, the heart came through. Incredible, Stunning… the purity, the love, the knowing that the time is NOW and we are finally home together in the ONENESS of it all. I am mostly without words for what I experienced.”
“A unique experience and much more than a movie – a valuable and beautiful, long forgotten message to the core of our ancient souls. A true film of the Heart.”
“I find the film to be transporting and absolutely flowing with sacredness. It is stunning to witness the energy of the spirits, the mountains and the sky all participating so actively in the film. To watch it is to not only witness the life and ceremony but to be part of it.”
“Wow. Near the end of the film I was filled with such a mix of deep gratitude and compassion for the human condition that tears began to flow down my cheeks. So I think it’s safe to say I got the heart transmission. Thank you for the gift, from my heart to yours.”
“I am a member of the School of Remembering and I was so touched and moved by your film. It was truly profound to see the wisdomkeepers holding space for humanity. I truly felt the depth of their profound words and love for all. Hearing the Paqos speak was life changing.”
