Tawantinsuyu Eco-Temple:

Paving the Way in Modern Earth-Wisdom

corte transversal

What is the Tawantinsuyu Eco-Temple?

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. 

Living Prophecy:

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. 

Ancient prophecy foretold the Tawantinsuyu will one day re-emerge with enlightened leaders that serve as models for world figures, governments, and individuals to co-exist in peace. 

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 .

Without doubt, we accept the honor of upholding the full embodiment of this name and all the aspirations that it encompasses.

Why are we building an indigenous Temple?

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.

Peru – A rich country with poor environmental consciousness?

Peru was and still is a prime destination for adventurers. But people often forget that mining is everywhere. From the Amazon forest to the Andes the search for oil and gold keeps affecting peoples lives more than ever. The main issue in the news right now concerns a major gold mine extension in Cajamarca and the drilling for oil along the Rio Nanay upstream from the Amazon. In both cases people are protesting and several mobilizations are happening across the country in defense of water.

A race to zero future

Like other countries in South America, mining is a huge part of the peruvian economy. Peru is ranked #7 in the world for gold. Gross Domestic Product is rising but most people only see the down side of that growth. Most of the profit is made and kept by private companies. Leaving behind misery and no future. That said you feel like you want to go to bed. But wait, you are concerned, every person on this planet will suffer the repercussions of these destructions.
