I'm thrilled to be joined today by Damiana Calvario. I've known Damiana for a couple of years now, and we've had the opportunity to share and support each other's work in a variety of ways.

Damiana is a mixed woman of color, daughter, sister, caregiver, community member, 1st generation immigrant. Born and raised in so-called Mexico City to a large family, she inherited both her mother's and father's lineages. Currently living as a guest in Chumash land, Damiana's practice blends together her Mexican roots, family's kitchen remedies, Curanderismo studies, and western herbal training.

Damiana's heart-centered offerings have always impressed me, and I'm so grateful that she's here on the podcast.
