Hey everybody! Episode 65 of the show is out. In this episode, I spoke with my friend Kunti. I met Kunti in the Sacred Valley of Peru where she was running a temazcal, a traditional sweat lodge from Mexico. I really enjoy that medicine and connected with Kunti and felt she held a beautiful space. We have gotten to know each other more and have both become more familiar with each other's respective work. It was a pleasure for me to sit down and connect with her. We did a long podcast, my longest yet at close to five hours. So I decided to split it into two parts. In the first, she talks about her background, the medicine of the temazcal, and the Sun and Moon Dance. In part two, she speaks about frog and toad medicines: kambo and buffo. Kunti has a lot of experience, knowledge, and wisdom to share, so I trust you all will get a lot out of these two episodes. As always, to support this podcast, get early access to shows, bonus material, and Q&As, check out my Patreon page below. Enjoy!

"My name is Kunti. I have dedicated my life to the service and study of the ancestral traditions of natural medicines and ways to heal from the mother earth. My specialty is in holding different kinds of ceremonies, based on ancestral ways, always adapting to the new times that we live in. My work is focused on the world of the medicines of the earth, master plants, sacred animals like the amphibians - kambo (phyllomedusa bicolor), and buffo alvarius. These are some of my specialties, as well as the medicine of the 4 elements, the temazcal, and other ways to heal with what we have on this earth and in connection with our power and divinity within.”
