Chakana is a non-commercial association that aims to generate an emotional and transpersonal growth in our society. In workshops, performances and lectures we approach the theme of reconnection with the earth and our emotions. The aim is to shift our attention from our intellectual body to our emotions and from there to perceive things from a different perspective. The association acts as a community platform in Zurich and offers a broad cultural spectrum, such as concerts, mindful gatherings, exhibitions, shadow theatres, film evenings and workshops in the fields of yoga, meditation, music and dance. At Chakana, both local and international artists have a platform to present and share their performances and knowledge.

Here are the names of all the supporters who helped us launch the first Chakana Project in winter 2018. Thanks to them we can now collaborate with a Shipibo community in the Peruvian Amazon and together restore and extend a natural healing center in the rainforest. The preservation of the place will enable future generations to continue their traditions and thus make a substantial contribution to the survival of the Shipibo culture with its unique handicrafts, its millennia-old knowledge of the rainforest and its incomparable singing associated with nature, plants and animals while stimulating a cultural exchange between Europe and South America. Our entire team in Switzerland and Peru sends a very big thank you to each one of you for your great support!
