WELCOME TO WILLKASARA - SACRED CORN
The sacred corn represents the spirit of all ancient cultures
living on Turtle Island
The sacred corn seeds have been used as a source of life and medicine. For the Inca and pre-Inca people, the corn seeds were a connection with (Pachamama) Mother Earth. In our ceremonies, this is one of the most important elements. The Winter Solstice, one of the most important events for the Inca calendar, was celebrated in a Garden of Golden Crops of Corn in the Koricancha or Temple of Our Father Sun.
Gold and corn was shared among the people as a sign of enlightenment. In the same way, our purpose is to share the wisdom and knowledge of our ancestors with people around the world.
