Juan Nunez del Prado has been researching ‘The Supernatural Andean World’ since 1968. In 1979, he became apprentice to Don Benito Qoriwaman Vargas, Don Melchor Deza, Don Andres Espinoza and Don Mauel Quispe. All of them were indigenous Andean spiritual teachers, traditionally called ‘Paqo’ or ‘Alto Misayoq’. Their beliefs combined fundamental Christian beliefs, with beliefs and rituals originating from the sophisticated Pre Columbian animism of the Incas.
On 24th September 2016, in association with the Scientific & Medical Network, the Albert Schweitzer Institute (UK) will be hosting a conference at Cambridge University. This is the first of a series of annual conferences which will be held at different universities each year to raise awareness of Dr Schweitzer’s life and thought.
