Founded in 2006, in the Peruvian Andes during a sacred ceremony high atop a glacier, we were given the mission that our Llanquay (Sacred Work) was to share the Heart of the Condor wisdom with humanity. And in that moment the first spark of Children of the Seven Rays was born.

In the Quechua language, this translates to Inti Churincuna Canchis Illa and is connected to the energy of the rainbow and a path of transformation and transmutation. It is a vibration grounded in Mother Earth and to the Sacred Temples in the Andes. It is a portal to the star-energy of the Cosmos and is a path that supports you in liberation and finding a peaceful and centered place within your own Sacred Heart.

We are committed to empowering, celebrating and honouring the Indigenous Wisdom of the Andes through embracing Sumaq Kausay - Living in a Good Way with all of Existence.

We hold a sacred space to connect with, learn from, and practice teachings from an Andean Worldview that are grounded in Mother Earth, Connected to the Cosmos, and Centred in Your Sacred Heart.

Co-Founders Jhaimy Alvarez-Acosta and Starr Muranko work in partnership with long-time collaborator Martine Kleissen and an amazing Ayllu (spiritual family) to provide authentic, heart-felt, and transformative experiences that are open to all.

Jhaimy Alvarez-Acosta

is a Traditional Curandero (Healer) from Cusco, Peru who has been trained and initiated in the Wisdom Teachings of the Andes.  Jhaimy began his initiation onto this path at a young age as an apprentice to his Traditional Elders and has now walked the committed path of a Wisdomkeeper for over 30 years.

As a keeper of Ancient Wisdom Jhaimy has been invited to share his knowledge and lead ceremonies at conferences, workshops and specialized tours throughout South America, Europe and North America.  He holds a degree in Tourism from La Universidad Andina del Cusco, is the Founder of TAM Tours in Peru and has been an invited guest speaker at several universities including Trent University and McGill University.

He is Co-Founder of Children of the Seven Rays and C7Rays Foundation and is a spiritual teacher and guide best known for his heart-centered and humble approach to healing and spirituality.

Today, Jhaimy continues to be committed to the SERVICE OF LOVE and through ceremony, ritual and healing practices he supports people in moving past their limitations in order to liberate and connect with their heart and their purpose.

Starr Muranko

One of Starr’s greatest joys in life is to create safe and sacred spaces where community can gather to learn and grow together. She is passionate about sharing Indigenous wisdom teachings and cultivating transformative experiences for all who walk through the doors of Children of the Seven Rays.

As a professional dancer/choreographer she weaves her spiritual practice through her creativity while honouring her mixed Ancestry of Cree/French/German in all of her work. She has a deep love of nature, global adventures, and spending time in circle with children and Elders.

Martine Kleissen

Martine is passionate about the sacred work of Children of the Seven Rays and how Andean wisdom anchors people deeply in their hearts with sweetness while grounding them to the powerful medicine of Mother Earth.  She is grateful to be a Dreamweaver for these traditional teachings to come to life; empowering individuals, communities, and humanity in learning how to embody the Andean Principles of Munay (love, beauty, sweetness and magic) and Sumaq Kausay (to live in a good way with all of existence).

Alongside her dedication to C7R, Martine is devoted to being in Service to Love through empowering women to remember their divine design through Intuitive Healing Arts, Kundalini Danceand Light Language. What lights her up are the simple pleasures of roses, rainbows, musical medicine, and the glory of Mother Nature.

Children of the Seven Rays Foundation

After many years of giving back to communities in Peru, we formed Children of the Seven Rays Foundation in 2015 as a registered non-profit society and the home for our community-based projects focusing on supporting women, children and Elders both in Canada and Peru. We envision a world where Indigenous knowledges of the Eagle and Condor are honoured and celebrated through intergenerational sharing to empower individuals and communities to live in harmony with Mother Earth.
