Claudia Cuentas is a Peruvian marriage and family therapist, specializing in the treatment of healing trauma, trauma recovery, cultural identity, and decolonization of healing. 

In this episode, we explore the concepts of right relationship, sacred reciprocity and AYNI, a Quechua word that points to an embodied understanding of our symbiotic relationship with all of life, and how to meet life with balance, harmony, and equilibrium of exchange and mutuality. 

Right relationship, AYNI, and sacred reciprocity are powerful concepts that can be applied to all forms of leadership. 

In this episode with Claudia, we explore a range of topics, including: 

  • The importance of slowing down enough so we can return to our senses
  • How sacred plant medicines train our senses to tune into another dimension of reality we can’t perceive with our eyes, in order to perceive the multiverse. 
  • The importance of listening as a daily practice.
  • Nervous system regulation. 
  • How sacred plant medicines help to clear our channels
  • The power of forgiveness as a practice 
  • Curiosity as a mindset
  • The power of song as a modality of transmutation. 
  • How plant medicines inform and influence the way we show up to lead. 
  • Understanding what decolonizing the mind means, and exploring this topic through the lens of creativity.
