Ayni and Light of the Andes

Dr. James E. Williams, doctor of integrative medicine, accomplished author, and founder and President of Ayni Global, joins ZOOM’D to discuss his latest book, Light of the Andes, a personal account of direct experience with indigenous wisdom and his shamanic journey deep into the heart and high peaks of the Andes. James explores the indigenous way of being discovered amidst the Q’ero peoples of Peru, termed Ayni, a form of living based on reciprocity, responsibility, and holistic integration of the individual (I), community (We), and nature (It). While born centuries ago and lived through many ages, James describes how Ayni holds relevance as a sustainability principle today, potentially serving as a guide to the modern world as it struggles to re-gain balance with nature and among peoples of the planet. Anyi is examined in four parts: general introduction; personal journey leading to its discovery; the wisdom of Ayni; and translation into a living realization today.
