The Eagle and the Condor is an ancient Amazon prophecy that speaks of human societies splitting into two paths – that of the Eagle, and that of the Condor. The path of the Condor is the path of heart, of intuition, and of the feminine. The path of the Eagle is the path of the mind, of the industrial, and of the masculine.
The prophecy says that the 1490s would begin a 500 year period during during which the Eagle people would become so powerful that they would virtually drive the Condor people out of existence. This can be seen in the conquering of the Americas and the killing and oppressing of the indigenous peoples in the subsequent 500 years – up to and including today.
The prophecy says that during the next 500-year period, beginning in 1990, the potential would arise for the Eagle and the Condor to come together, to fly in the same sky, and to create a new level of consciousness for humanity. The prophecy only speaks of the potential, so it’s up to us to activate this potential and ensure that a new consciousness is allowed to arise.

The Pachamama Alliance Born Out of The Eagle and the Condor Prophecy
The Pachamama Alliance is an alliance between the Achuar – the Condor people of the Ecuadorian amazon – and the modern world – the Eagle people of the North. In the 1990s, the Achuar of the Ecuadorian Amazon began seeing the threat of oil development coming to their ancient pristine territory.
The Achuar decided to reach out to the modern world to form an alliance that would equip them to protect their land and culture and at the same time change the dream of the modern world that drives the consumption threatening their land and culture. Our alliance with the Achuar is a reciprocal partnership where the “mind” of the modern world helps the Achuar stand for their land and culture and the “heart” of the Achuar culture helps to educate and inspire people all over the world through our transformative workshops.
It’s Up to Us to Activate the Potential of the Prophecy
Take our online course, Awakening the Dreamer, which was created in response to an invitation from the Achuar people of the Ecuadorian Amazon to work in partnership to shift the dominant culture of consumption and alienation to one that honors and sustains all life.
