If you have lost your own path, you must go back and look for it, only in this way you will find it.
This is the message of this autobiographical story. The author, a medicine-man and heir of the ancient medical traditions of the Inca spiritual culture, cured of an illness judged to be incurable, was educated by the western values achieving two degrees at the University of Arequipa.
He comes into contact with a knowledge believed to be lost and he discovers its traces through the personal contact with the American Indians and some revealing dreams. However, the determinant encounter of his life is with a spiritual wise man from the Andes, who lives inside a cave on the mountain, between the eternal glaciers. Thus, his initiation takes place which brings him to spread the message he has received: the need for a human being to establish a new agreement with the “Pachamama”, the great Mother Earth. This encounter will allow him to move from a condition of obscurity and danger to an era full of light, which will see the birth of a new humanity, the “people of the Rainbow”.
