Puma Fredy Quispe Singona began training with his grandfather, the late Don Maximo, after an initiation by lightning at the age of six — learning and mastering the Andean traditions and rituals of the Rainbow Lineage from the Inca people of Chinchero.
He has studied with direct lineages of the Huachuma plant from the coast of Peru and with Ayahuasca, the sacred plant of the Amazonian Shipibo people. Puma, who conveys a profound respect for Pachamama (Mother Earth) and ancestral plant medicine, facilitates ceremonies to support our global consciousness awakening and has been featured in books and films about the Andean medicine path.
Since the age of 15, Puma has attended international conferences and has led gatherings for spiritual leaders and young Indigenous leaders around the world. His family team’s tour company, Pumadventures, hosts retreats and leads groups on spiritual journeys to visit sacred ancient sites for self-realization, transformation, and healing processes.
Puma’s mission is to continue his grandfather’s legacy by sharing the wisdom and the medicine of his ancestral Indigenous culture in his own unique, inspiring, and heartfelt way. He is the founder the Noqan Kani Global Community Center in his hometown village of Chinchero, where the local people, as well as the greater global community, can study and learn about the timeless Andean ways, culture, and nature-based wisdom that have been passed down for thousands for years and will continue for generations to come.
