The Tawantinsuyu Temple is an eco-cultural sanctuary for indigenous leaders to gather in spiritual practice and pass forth ancestral wisdom and traditional healing to all individuals of the present and future generations.
Historically, the “Tawantinsuyu” was the name of the Inka Empire, translating in Quechua as “the four united regions.” The center of this empire was located in the capitol city of Cusco, Peru.
The Tawantinsuyu Eco-Temple is one of four temples being built by indigenous allies of South America. One being this one here in Cusco, Peru with the Qero, the second is on Isla del Sol, Boliva with the Aymara, the third in Copacobana, Boliva with the Aymara; and the fourth is currently unknown. One may call this a true re-emersion of the Tawantinsuyu- led by indigenous wisdom keepers .
It is currently illegal for indigenous communities to hold ceremony on their own ancestral sites here in Peru and Bolivia. Thus, we are building NEW SACRED SPACES. Ones that honor ancestral tradition, and empower indigenous practices to continue forth as viable and curative solutions to modern challenges.
It is our intention to utilize this temple to address modern socio-cultural challenges and reinforce connectedness of community on both a local and global scale.
The temple will serve as a rejuvenation center open for all people of the world to experience personal healing through ancestral tradition, native plants, healthy cuisine, and vibrant practices– that encourage us to walk back into the world as a radiant and empowered person.
This sustainable project is open to volunteers and interns as a means of imparting ecological skills, wisdom, and resources as to inspire further ecological planetary action.
