Step out of the busy pace of life for a day in the beautiful setting of Cucumber Fields.
In today’s highly-strung, always-on society, we often hover in a constant state of low or high anxiety. Continuous low-level stress is now accepted as normal. Mental overload leads to physical stress which literally restricts the way we breathe, keeping the unhealthy circle going and results in us feeling out of balance.
AYNI means balance in the indigenous language of Quechua. In the Andean villages this reciprocity can be tangible or intangible and it is practiced in all aspects of the daily life. All things in ayni, means all things in right balance whether it be in the environment or our bodies. It is an action and more importantly a way of life that should be understood as the essence which triggers all of our actions.
Ayni show reciprocity with nature because nature is part of us. It is the source of life and everything that keeps us alive and nurtures us, and it is our duty to reciprocate.
