Grafham Water Marathon, 15th September 2013, Cambridge

Image


Amantani raised £28,000 in aid of children in rural areas of Peru with the support of 400 determined runners. Baila Peru and collaborators were very pleased to be part of this inspiring event. They performed Andean dances Virgenes del Sol, Valicha, and Scissor dance. Their Andean theme ended with a special performance of the Condor. The Condor is regarded as the symbol of Hanan Pacha (the upper world) representing the sky, the messenger of the spirits of the Apus (mountains). For more details about the event and Amantani, please visit: Amantani.

Preserving the spirit of unity

'The things that have acquired unity are these: Heaven by unity has become clear; Earth by unity has become steady; The Spirit by unity has become spiritual; The Valley by unity has become full; All things by unity have come into existence.'
