The inspiration behind the name Kusi Cosmopolitan integrates ancient wisdom and art into a context of modernity and interconnectedness
KUSI is Quechua for “joyful”. Chosen out of love for my Peruvian heritage and a fascination with wisdom originating from ancient civilizations.
With regard to well-being, Andean philosophy revolves around a concept of integral centeredness and a unique vision of time/space regarding the past, the present, and the future. For a more pragmatic interpretation, we can look at it as the center point of a triangle that represents a balanced state of physical, mental, and spiritual health within the four natural elements (fire, water, air, earth).
Cosmopolitan represents the beauty created through the integration of modernity and evolution, a reminder that we are all interconnected, and that the whole is worth much more than the individual parts.
