Fredy "Puma" Quispe Singona was born in 1980 in Chinchero a small Village in Cusco. He was trained by his grandfather, Don Maximo, in the mastery of Andean ceremonies and rituals since he was a very young boy. As a spiritual leader both in his own community of Chinchero, international gatherings and spiritual journeys he has a passion for the teachings of his people, and a profound respect for the global awakening Human Consciousness. He has attended and facilitated numerous international gatherings of spiritual leaders and young leaders with YES (Youth for Environmental Sanity).

Puma is recognized globally as a holder of ancient lineage and wisdom with the power to inspire people in his special heartfelt way to connect with the reverence and love he brings for Pachamama (Mother Earth) and the mountain spirits (Apus) that safeguard the Andean people. He is a co-founder of *Cusi Huayna*, a youth group focused on re-strengthening the community through the remembrance of traditional dance, story and songs.

Puma has a natural ability to connect with ancestral forces and natural elementals that assist him in his global healing path. He sees everyone as a global family and we are only healing ourselves while healing our family. As a tour guide to the natural wonders and sacred sites of Peru and the Quechua world, he has an unshakeable certainty about the traditions and values of the ancient Andean cultures.
