13. Seeking Truth - Benji Paula
13. Seeking Truth - Benji Paula
Benji Paola, also known as Sister Benji or "Reggae Queen" has inspired us and many people to live joyfully with nature in a sustainable way. In the 90´s she and her partner returned from Holland to the countryside of Portugal without financial resources. With nothing more than love and confidence they managed to get some land and a ruin where they built up a healthy base to raise four children. Together they got known as the ONE LOVE Family, one of Portugals first reggae bands. Nowadays she takes care of the land by herself and frequently receives people who come to learn and experience her way of life – always seeking truth and love for the divine creation.

10. Moon Dance - Antara Dakini
10. Moon Dance - Antara Dakini
The moondance is an ancestral ceremony with its origins in Mexico, a prayer of sisters and brothers for mother earth and human evolution.  The ritual is a beautiful chance for women to cleanse their bodies of generations of female suppression, to open up for healing and regain their strength, to transform into loving warrior women that our mother earth needs. For the second time we had the honor to make part of this powerful prayer which transformed our lives and we are excited to share this episode with a precious interview of Antara Dakini, who organizes the moondance in Austria.  More informations at www.moondanceaustria.com *We want to keep our podcast free and accessible for everyone, but for that we need your support.

2. Nature Always Comes Back - Anne Dinneen
Anne Dinneen was born in Ireland and came to Portugal in 1998 as a single mother of two children, transporting a Tipi which was their home. Now she lives in a stone house on top of a hill called Picota from where you have a breathtaking view over South Portugal. But what you see from up there is shocking. The once green hills have turned into a monoculture industry of Eucalyptus, which is sucking a lot of water from the ground. This business was the reason for various forest fires which have burned down big areas of Monchique. Anne had to run away twice from the flames loosing her house and trees. In this episode she talks about her life as a yogateacher who again and again rises up from the ashes to defend bio diversity and healing in this corner of the planet.

1. Soul of a Community - Yemadas
Ana Rute and Tiago Rouxinol spent many years traveling and exploring the world. Their passion for music and dance brought them to different tribes and cultures around the globe. For ten years the famous ecovillage Auroville in India was their base of living. There they formed the band Yemadas, which for them means "a group of nomadic people with a positive spirit and a lot of joy to share." When their son was born, they felt the call to return to their roots in Portugal. Together with friends they found their "promised land" in a remote valley and are now guardians of one of the last remaining native forests in this area. We had the honor to be their guests for two weeks in which this podcast was recorded :) Interviews with Ana Rute, Tiago Rouxinol, Gian and Maria Rute www.yemadasband.com
