Santa Marta’s Sierra Nevada, located in the Colombian North Coast, is the highest coastal summit in the world and covers an area of 12.600 km2.
Due to the variation in its geographical elevation, this area has almost all the climatic zones that can occur in tropical America, which is conducive to a wide range of biodiversity from the sea below to the snow peaks above. Four indigenous peoples live there, all with a similar vision of the world. They are the Arhuaco, Kogi, Wiwa and Kankuamo.
For these four indigenous peoples, the Sierra Nevada is where the wealth and sustenance of the spirit can be found; it’s the temple of the spirit and the soul. There are sites in the Sierra, which are energetically linked with other places in the world. These connections are essential in the keeping of the balance of our planet and the universe.
Santa Marta’s Sierra Nevada, is like the eldest human being of the world.
It is also the place where the spiritual father and mother of water, wind, fire and earth dwell.
Whenever there is disharmony in the Sierra Nevada, it’s because in other parts of the world the sacred sites are not being taken care of. For this reason it’s very important for the Mamos to keep the balance in other places of our planet.
The gathering, from Mamo’s Cosmological perspective, needs to take place in the Sierra Nevada because Creation was sparked with spiritual energy in this space.
This gathering has been called upon, based on this creation principle: that the sacred energy is calling us to get together and defend our right to live with health and wellbeing.
Stemming from that principle, the Mamos will open the door of spirit for the rest of the participants, so we can understand each other on this physical plane.
From the Mamo’s perspective all beings that exist in the universe, which are the manifestation of the sun, were originated in this space.
