  • Welcome! In this show I sat down with my friend Carolina. Carolina and I worked together for a number of years at the Amazonian plant healing center the Temple of the Way of Light. Carolina has been immersed in this work for more than a decade and brings a joy, knowledge, and charisma to this work that few possess. It was a pleasure to reconnect with her and I hope you enjoy the show. Carolina's bio is as follows:

    "Carolina "Caro Luna" Pilara has accumulated over a decade of experience working with indigenous cultures and plant medicines in Latin America. For the past eight years she has held leadership positions in ceremonial settings and retreats in Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, and the UK. She has guided over a thousand first time and experienced participants in medicinal work with ayahuasca, peyote and cacao as ceremonial practices, as well as facilitated Elemental Shamanic breath-work workshops and seminars. As a Latin American with Western upbringing, she sees both her identity and work as a bridge between cultures and approaches, but also as a platform from which to create new spaces of dialog in the spirit of radical transparency, authenticity and growth."

  • Welcome! In this show I talk about tobacco. For those who are new to this work it may seem strange that tobacco is being spoken of as a medicine plant. And not only is it medicinal, it is considered a Master Plant, a plant that has the ability to both heal and teach. For those of you who are familiar with tobacco I hope this sheds some deeper light onto this plant and for those who are not familiar, hopefully this offers some insight and sparks a curiosity. I hope you enjoy!

    Welcome! In this show I sat down with Zuzana and Lacey from the Temple of the Way of Light, an Amazonian plant healing center located near Iquitos, Peru. Zuzana facilitates ceremonies there and Lacey teaches yoga. We talked about their journeys that led them to plant medicine, plants, ceremonies, their work, and COVID. I enjoyed the conversation and I think you will too.
