Show 1016: Rosita Arvigo Recommends Remedies from the Rainforest
The tropical rainforest of Belize is full of medicinal plants. The knowledge of these plants and their uses has been considered secret, closely guarded by the traditional Mayan practitioners of shamanism.
But several decades ago, an inquisitive and persistent American woman showed up and became a shaman’s apprentice. Ultimately, the shaman realized that she could teach others, including young Mayans, about the riches of the rainforest so that his knowledge would not be lost forever. Rosita Arvigo tells her story and shares her wisdom as she talks with Joe and Terry.
