Fellowship of the Inner Light


The Laika were the custodians of invaluable wisdom, known as the four insights. These teachings held that all of creation — the earth, humans, whales, rocks, and even the stars — was made of vibration and light: Nothing perceived as material existed, other than as a dream that humans projected onto the world.

The Laika realized that knowledge about human beings’ capacity to manifest our dreams, what shamans call “dreaming the world into being,” was tremendously powerful and could be easily abused by those lacking ethics. Thus, they concealed that knowledge from outsiders and most of their fellow indigenous peoples.

Despite their caution, the Laika were branded as witches and sorcerers by the Spanish conquistadors, who relentlessly persecuted, imprisoned, tortured, and killed them. (Their wisdom was considered so dangerous and threatening to the Catholic Church that even after the Spanish Inquisition hat shut down everywhere else in the world, the Church kept the Peruvian Inquisition office active in Lima, Peru until 1820.)

Those who managed to escape the purge fled high into the Andes, where they cut themselves off from the rest of humanity — their reputation so thoroughly ruined by the Spaniards that, even today, the name Laika is associated with sorcery.
