Speaking to thousands of people globally and inspiring them in his special heartfelt way, Puma Quispe Singona is described as “magical, compassionate and wise beyond his years” with a deep reverence for Pachamama (Earth Mother) and an ancient understanding of the Cosmos. Puma’s gift lies in the ability to open people’s hearts firstly to themselves, then to their family and ultimately to their global community. Trained by his Grandfather since the age of 6, Puma has been walking the path of a traditional Andean Medicine Man and is recognized as a holder of ancient wisdom.
He is a prominent citizen within his local community and a member of the Elders Council in Chinchero, Peru as well as the Co-founder of Cusi Huayna, a youth group focused on re-strengthening the community through the remembrance of traditional dance, story and weaving. He is accredited to sharing the secrets of the Andes with hundreds of tourists each year as a guide on the Inca Trail while continuing to study with Quechua elders throughout the Sacred Valley.
Today Puma plays an active role in world affairs by sitting on several international and indigenous councils including the World Wisdom Council, whose honorary chair is Mikhail Gorbachyev. He was also featured in 4Real which began as a documentary television series that features young leaders who, under extreme circumstances, are affecting real change on some of the most pressing issues of our time, and has now expanded to include an online global community. Through this work, he is ensuring the contribution of indigenous wisdom toward strengthening the vision of global harmony and healing.
