Hey everybody! Episode 42 of the show is out. In this episode, I spoke with my friend Martina Drassl. Martina and I met about a decade ago when we both arrived in the Peruvian Amazon and were working in respective plant medicine centers, myself at the Temple of the Way of Light and Martina at Nihue Rao Centro Espiritual. Martina is originally from northern Italy and spent time in the Peruvian Andes before embarking on a medicine path in the Shipibo lineage. She helped found Nihue Rao with a previous guest of mine, Joe Tafur. Martina brings a light and clarity and softness to her work and has gone very deeply into the process of plant medicine work and working within the Shipibo lineage. I really enjoyed speaking with her and she shares a lot of wisdom. I think you all will enjoy this conversation and hopefully learn a lot from it and from her.

I was born in 1975 grew up in South Tyrol, a border province in the North of Italy, close to Switzerland and Austria. I speak German, Italian, English and Spanish.After many years of work experience as Hotel Receptionist and Youth Coordinator I moved to the Peruvian Andes where I coordinated a Non Profit organization for sustainable development and cooperation. In 2009 my healing journey with Amazonian Master Plants began. I worked for extensive time periods as a facilitator in the Retreat Center Nihue Rao in Iquitos, Peru. I studied Somatic Experiencing Trauma Release in Los Angeles and Burlingame, CA to become a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP). I divide my time between, South Tyrol/Italy, Peru and USA and Canada.”To learn more about Martina or to contact her, visit: https://www.homewithin.org/ and https://nihuerao.com/ This episode of the show is sponsored by the Temple of the Way of Light.

Episode 10 | Cvita Mamic and Martina Drassl | Modern Spirit Podcast
Modern Spirit Podcast
Fascinating interview with artist/healer Cvita Mamic and somatic experience therapist/healer Martina Drassl. A great discussion with my spiritual sisters and Nihue Rao family Cvita and Martina, the sound quality is rough, but that's because it was recorded on location in the maloka at Nihue Rao Centro Espiritual. I think it's worth working through the parrots and roosters, always so impressed with their insights into the world of healing.
Today I was able to sit down and hear the origin story of how Martina Drassl became a Ayauhusca Shaman and somatic experience healer. Please check out her blog homewithin.org as she shares her life through some of her writings. Enjoy!!
