The Wisdomkeepers project

EPISODE 21: The Wisdom of The Ancient Comes West

Jeffrey Slayter’s partner and enlightened entrepreneur Niamh Cronin joins the Jeffrey Slayter Show, along with special guest Jeffrey Wium of the Wisdomkeepers Project and producer of the film Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino. After two decades in media production, Wium made an abrupt change in his life, leaving his filmmaking career behind when he was drawn to the Andes to study. In 2006, he founded the Wisdomkeepers Project, and began in earnest to bring some of the wisdom of the ancients to the Western world. He does this through programs, talks, retreats, coaching, and mentoring services.

Key takeaways:

  • The hardest thing about enlightenment is learning to get out of your own way.
  • See Wium’s film, Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino.
  • Instead of just looking out for ourselves, we need to look out for everyone.
  • Together, the heart and mind can be a power-house to create a better world.
