Profound and powerful eco-spiritual documentary explores the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition of the Altomisayoqs of Peru

"Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino," (http://www.paqoandino.com) an inspirational, emotionally intimate documentary exploring the heart-centered, celestially guided life ways of the Altomisayoqs of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition of Peru, is set to debut in Boulder (March 21 and 22) and Denver (March 27 and 28).

Filmed entirely on location in the high mountains of Peru, this unprecedented motion picture takes viewers on a journey into the heart of one of our planet’s last remaining indigenous wisdom lineages, to discover a way of life both 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.

Like the groundbreaking films "Koyaanisqatsi" and "Baraka", "Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino" is non-narrated. As such, viewers receive a direct, unmediated experience of living with the Altomisayoqs (or 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.

The experience is energetic, powerful, immensely moving and visually stunning. Watch the trailer: http://www.paqoandino.com/trailer.

"Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino" will be presented for two screenings only, at 7:00 pm on March 21 and 22 at Unity of Boulder (2855 Folsom Street, Boulder CO 80304). Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door on the night of the event.

The film will also screen at Denver's SIE FilmCenter (2510 E. Colfax Avenue, Denver 80206) at 7:30 pm on Thursday, March 27 and Friday, March 28.

Information and advance tickets for all four screenings are available online at: http://www.indigenous-alchemy.com/#!wisdomkeepers/c1s5d

Filmmaker Jeffrey Wium, a Western-born Paqo initiated in the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition following years of study in Peru, will be on hand to introduce the film and lead a post-screening interactive program and discussion.

Raised in the United States, Wium’s life studies, apprenticeships and spiritual exploration have taken him across five continents and multiple traditions. He draws upon nearly three decades of professional experience in a wide range of photography, video, film and multimedia projects that provided first-hand knowledge of world traditions, cultural ideologies and perceptual realities.

Of Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino, Wium notes “The film’s inspiration, coordination and production has been one of deep faith, listening and inter-cultural / inter-dimensional integration into an ancient way of being, a personal and professional paradigm rooted in our natural, unified state of reality and ‘ayni’, or unconditional right relationship.

“The word Paqo means ‘gate,’” he added. “And that is the role of the Paqo, to hold open the gate for others to connect through a lineage that is still intact.”

For those interested in delving more deeply into the experience and transmissions of the film, Wium will present a one-day workshop on Sunday, March 23 (Boulder) and Saturday, March 29 (Denver) to both explore the mysteries of the ancient lineage and to help participants connect to and integrate aspects of the wisdom and ceremony of the Paqos into their daily lives.

Cost for the day-long workshop is $125. Advance registration is required. Details and a registration link are available online at http://www.indigenous-alchemy.com/#!wisdomkeepers/c1s5d.

Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino is a presentation of Wiumworks Media/OEAO in association with Beyond Boundaries Institute and Ayllu K’anchaq Qollyur.
