Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino is an inspirational film conveying the heart-based intelligence and celestially integrated lifeways of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition. Recorded on location in the Peruvian highlands, this intimate documentary takes viewers on a journey into the heart of an ancient eco-spiritual lineage to experience the practical and mystical lifeways that have sustained one of this planet’s few unbroken wisdom traditions.

The film's non-narrated format offers audiences an unmediated experience of the Andean maestro's day-to-day life and their animistic relationships with the conscious life force inherent within all aspects of the Natural World. Viewers receive universally applicable insights into a way of being based on loving kindness, unconditional reciprocity, equanimity, sustainability and the sanctity of daily life– foundations of what is known as the Living Peace.
The Andean Holy Mountain Tradition in association with Wiumworks, Beyond Boundaries Institute and Ayllu K’anchaq Qollyur have created this legacy offering to help inspire and revitalize modern society at a time when unprecedented numbers of people find themselves seeking balance and a deeper means of connection and renewal. It is our wish to help birth the Light from the obscurity of our times.


Wisdomkeepers are the guardians of nature's mysteries within the Lakota ceremonies and their practices, the medicine that is ruled by them, the songs that infuse our senses and our spiritual body, and the forces they produce that are identical to nature and its motivating power. These oral and entirely spontaneous transmissions, given by the three holy men, Joe Flying By, Dave Chief, and Leroy Curley, are a rare treasure of the highest generosity, directed for the greatest good. Their stories are told with complete equanimity, vividly conveying, without rancor or judgement, how Western civilization lacks connection to the natural world. Because passing on elders' wisdom in the oral tradition to the next generation is almost impossible, given the fact that the three important elements of the Lakota culture--the land, the people, and the language--are all but gone, the film's producer/director has provided a great service to those who have an interest in, and wish to learn from, ancient Native American teachings that have rarely been exposed.

Producer/Director: Ora Abel-Russell
