Voices from Mexico and Peru
Fred Clarke was born in Lima, Peru in 1979 and studied documentary filmmaking. In 1998, he had deep awakening experiences in the mountains and coast of Lima, and changed his way of life on many levels. In 2003, he travelled to the East Coast of U.S. to experience the “first world.” Between 2004 and 2005, he moved out to the high jungle in Peru to live and learn traditional medicine work and also to co-create an ecological self-sustainable community. In 2006, he came back to Lima and with Luz Maria Ampuero, Daniel Zevallos and some friends who then co-created Nuna Ayni Healing Centre, located in Barranco.
One year later, they decided to move away from the Nuna Ayni project and into the Sacred Valley of the Inkas, to P`isaq, Cusco. In the recent years he has been learning and working as a sound healer through Peruvian musical instruments both Pre-Columbian and contemporary, doing traditional medicine work from the Andes and the jungle, and learning about the Andean cosmology. Through the Nuna Ayni project he has held healing circles and traveled to the U.S. sharing the Nuna Ayni vision. In addition, he has been working with Wiñaypaq, an intercultural school, sharing workshops for native children in Cusco.
