Condor’s Quest: Mysteries of the Andes
Leonard George leads this free public lecture as part of the Capilano Universe series.
A condor sees all from above. That aerial view is a sort of wisdom; it puts things in perspective. In the five-thousand-year arc of pre-Hispanic civilization in the Andes, two locations shone as beacons of transformative wisdom – Chavín de Huántar (in what is now Peru) and Tiwanaku (Bolivia). Modern researchers are casting light on the mysteries of these sites, finding that the condor’s wisdom may be vital for the human race to survive.
