Boulder, CO (PRWEB) April 12, 2014
"Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino," an inspirational, emotionally intimate documentary exploring the spirituality and heart-centered, celestially-guided life ways of the Altomisayoqs of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition of Peru will debut in Santa Fe and Taos April 23-26, 2014.
Filmed entirely on location in the high mountains of Peru, this unprecedented motion picture takes viewers on a journey into the heart of an ancient earthkeeping culture, one of our planet’s last remaining uninterrupted 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. Viewers receive a direct, unmediated experience of living with the Altomisayoqs (or Paqos) of the high Andes, witnessing their heart-based intelligence and being touched by their active, reciprocal relationships with the conscious life force of the natural world.
The experience is energetic, powerful, immensely moving and visually stunning.
"Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino" will be presented in Taos for one screening only, at 7:00 pm Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at the Taos Center for the Arts. Tickets are $10 in advance and at the door. Advance tickets can be reserved in person or by calling the TCA Boxoffice at 758-2052.
The film will screen for three nights in Santa Fe, at 6:00 pm on April 24-25 at BODY of Santa Fe, and 7:00 pm April 26 at the Sun Room at Santa Fe Soul. Tickets are $15 in advance (http://www.paqoandino.com/2014-schedule/) or $20 at the door on the night of the event.
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 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 the Wisdomkeepers project, 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 in Santa Fe on Saturday April 26to 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 will be available online at http://www.paqoandino.com. Or contact therese (at) paqoandino (dot) com for more information.
Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino is a presentation of Wiumworks Media/OEAO in association with Beyond Boundaries Institute and Ayllu K’anchaq Qollyur.
