Interview with Jeffrey Wium, maker of the film documentary “Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino”.
Jeffrey Wium is a lineage holder in the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition with a professional background in multi-media production. In 2008 he received inspiration for this project during a pilgrimage in the Peruvian Andes. Here he shares his experience with the project:
“In 2002 I was injured while filming a television series and led into the realm of holistic healing as a result of my recuperative inquires. This ‘accident’ offered deep insights into the need to integrate physical, mental and emotional healing in order to experience a larger state of wholeness, and introduced me to the mystical realms of ancient spiritual healing arts.
After four years of directed learning, initiations and certifications in a variety of modalities, I came to recognize a deep resonance in my work with the maestros of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition. In early 2007 I was called and initiated as an Andean Paqo and began traveling to Peru every six to eight weeks to facilitate my work. A year and a half later the inspiration for the film came to me during a high mountain pilgrimage.”
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.
