Since the beginning of time, man has always looked up to the sky, seeking answers about his connection to the universe and the origin of where he came from. He has always wanted to reflect what he saw in the sky on earth and to understand nature, to try to systematize time and even to seek its spiritual and religious meaning.
In that great search, in the Andes, men have found many answers in the universe, for example, considering it as a cosmic force (Pachakama) and by interacting with the telluric force (Pachamama), they generate all forms of life and interact with every process of nature and life.
This concept confirms the energetic interrelationship between the earth and the cosmos, being the Pachamama the essence that provides, nurtures and sustains kind men, while the Pachakama represents the invisible, the cosmic energy that protects and guides us during our stay on earth.
