Don Theo doesn’t just talk about your challenges, he offers you a path for transforming them. Life will keep sending us the same experience in a different guise “until we until we learn whatever it has to teach us about where we are separating ourselves from reality, how we are pulling back instead of opening up, closing down instead of allowing ourselves to experience fully whatever we encounter, without hesitating or retreating into ourselves.”
Don Theo Paredes is an anthropologist and a shaman who has
studied the cultures of the Andes and the Amazon. A native of Cusco, Peru, he has always had contact with the indigenous communities still relatively isolated from modern life. He is the founding director of Poqen Kanchay Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to rescue, study and preservation of the ancient knowledge and the archeological sites of the pre-Inca and Inca societies. Dr. Paredes teaches about indigenous cultures, their myths, symbols, architecture and the healing techniques. His perspective and knowledge are unique due to his background being a rare combination of mastery of indigenous wisdom and Western education and teaching.
