Paititi’s True Nature
“Paititi”, in Quechua, is an enlightened realm manifested through the awakening of our shared human heart. Through the awakened spirit of the individual comes the greatest potential for the transformation of the planet. The Paititi Institute for the Preservation of the Environment and Indigenous Culture is committed to embodying this paradigm shift and demonstrating what is possible through ordinary human efforts, in service to Mother Nature and the infinite human potential.
Through all of our programs, we dedicate our efforts to supporting a society of deep, nurturing and true values. We serve as an intercultural bridge, supporting individuals and communities to live activated, responsible and joyful lives in harmony with both inner and outer landscapes. As humans, we are inexorably linked to the earth and each other. As part of this magnificent symbiotic organism, we are dedicated to co-creating the enlightened world we all have in our hearts.
Paititi’s efforts to create a harmonious balance in human life and with this planet fall into 5 key categories:
- Conserving and restoring the Earth’s natural resources
- Preserving and integrating indigenous wisdom and culture
- Cultivating health through traditional and natural methods
- Embodying true stewardship via eco-regenerative, community living
- Understanding consciousness and engaging in cognitive evolution
Through practical application of ancient wisdom within the modern world, we build bridges for the physical, emotional, and spiritual healing of all people from all cultures and from all spiritual traditions and walks of life. In this natural way, we channel the healing and rejuvenation of the planet herself. Using holistic models based upon our points of focus listed above, we engage as a community to improve social and environmental life via spiritual evolution and maturation on the collective and individual levels. We utilize the planetary wisdom of humanity to become fully conscious and responsible human beings embracing our shared heart.
The ancient, unbroken, and living lineages of direct consciousness transmission are here to help all of us fully realize our true nature in the current turbulent times. By sharing our life experience with each other we create synergistic networks among all the like-hearted people in the world who are motivated by the freedom and liberation from suffering of all beings.
Through our work, we have identified three key aspects that directly, effectively, and positively impact our global culture.
Integrated ancestral wisdom mirrors life itself. With both as our teachers, we provide a supportive environment where people can voluntarily immerse in a guided and evolutionary process of self-realization. The tools and rites of passage cultivated within this sacred container allow individuals to resolve cultural conditioning and uncover their unique qualities, talents and skills, as well as cultivate these gifts within a social community setting.
At Paititi, we utilize indigenous medicine practices and natural healing modalities from around the world to address sickness and disease on a variety of levels, from psycho-spiritual to somatic. In our experience, this approach to healing sicknesses and diseases targets the root of the dysfunctional conditions and eliminates them at their source, rather than merely addressing symptoms. Today, more than any other time in history, the world needs viable models for this type of comprehensive healing.
Paititi is committed to the preservation of natural resources and restoration of degraded landscapes, as well as to permaculture and natural farming techniques that create vibrant, local food economies. Our food forests and gardens serve as an educational model for others to replicate, provide an example of how to live in harmonious relationship with Pachamama (Mother Earth), and help to sustain our community. Our land-based community in Peru is a sanctuary where we put these values into practice and embody a holistic model for the world.
