Carlos Fernandez-Baca Tepayachi
He grew up in a Peruvian family rooted in shamanism, who was taught by his grandfather since he was small boy. He studied to become a civil engineer, working and developing projects in the Amazon jungle as an engineer. While there, the ancient wisdom of the Andean communities was brought to his attention and he began his research of ancient civilizations, especially the Andean spiritual culture. These studies, which led him to write Saqsaywaman: A Model Of Atlantis The Untold Story, he suggests to reevaluate our understanding of the history of the Inkas and the legends which recall a fantastic and different story. The Shaman, with 30 years of experience, has been part of ceremonies and rituals performed by the grandparents of the Andean traditions receiving spiritual initiations and recognition of Paq’o Runa (priests of the culture of the Andes). Since 1989 he has participated as an exponent at several International Conferences in Latin America, the US and European countries. In 1992, he participated in the commemoration of the fifth anniversary of the meeting of two worlds (1492-1942) as President in the Organizing Committee of the 1st International Congress of Andean spirituality called “The Return of the X Pachakuty" held in the city of Cusco, Peru. But life had other plans for Carlos, at a powerful ceremony held by himself, he had a very deep reflection that was aimed by Aztec people, the “children of the corn” and their deity Quetzalcoatl the “feathered serpent”. Since then, a wide range of events and circumstances happened and he was given the opportunity to take a trip to Mexico and meet people who would help him on his journey. Currently his purpose is the service to others by healing people through the ancient ayahuasca wisdom. He understands that the time is perfect on Earth (Pachamama) to more western people get to know the medicine and what is more important to get to know who do we really are.
