Capoeira is a multi-layered practice. Part-martial art, part-dance, it’s a practise of skill, strategy and storytelling. Brought to Brazil by Africans during slavery at the beginning of the 16th century, it was used as a way to preserve history, culture and physical acuity. Capoeira has since become a part of Brazil’s cultural heritage and is practiced passionately across the world to this day. In this episode, we speak to Mestre Ponciano who guides us through the rich world of Capoeira and Puma Camillê, who is pushing the practice forward through his fusion with Vogue, connecting two cultures that have found emancipation through movement.

The night sky has fascinated humans since the beginning of time, and the cosmos remains one of the universe’s greatest wonders. We speak to science writer Jo Marchant and a Sidereal Astrologer, Dayna Lynn Nuckolls to trace back to the origins of astrology, astronomy, the zodiac, solstices and more, from the ancient babylonians to modern new age practises. The episode explores how the rise of modern spiritual practises are helping us reconnect to the skies above which science is beginning to reveal, has profound impact on our health and how we choose to live in the world.

Shinrin-Yoku is a traditional Japanese practise of immersing oneself in nature. Translated as “forest bathing” or “taking in the forest atmosphere”, it involves a full sensory immersion by mindfully activating all of our senses as we move through a natural environment, putting the body before the mind throughout the experience. We speak with Stefan Batorijs, a nature therapist in Devon, UK bringing the ancient Japanese wisdom to communities to build spiritual and psychological connections to nature, and educate on how we can learn to respect and include nature in our lives more deeply.

A Temazcal is a sacred Mexican sweat lodge dating back to the 1500s. Its origins and rituals are rooted in Aztecan mythology, with the Temazcal representing the womb of the earth, where we go to be purified and reborn. Few other ceremonial rituals offer the depth of treatment that the Temazcal has to offer. In this episode, Yasmin and Robyn hear from Lupita Maldonado, Guardiana of Temazcal Ba'duhiini in Guerrero Mexico, to learn about the spiritual, physical and social benefits of this ancient practice.
