Episode 75: About your story medicine, with Jumakae

podcast May 20, 2021

What is the story within you that needs to be told? June Kaewsith, also known as Jumakae, can help you find it. And here’s why it’s important to do that: there’s immense healing possible when we are in tune with our own stories, and also the stories of our ancestors. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧

Stories allow a deeper level of understanding. And as Jumakae points out in this episode, so many of the things we focus on in our lives are transient. For instance, we can’t take money to our graves... but we can leave a legacy through the stories we tell, and the stories others tell of us.
