*** I made a Recap Series of our Season 1 episodes! ***

You get access the downloadable audio version of them at the bottom of this post.

Welcome to the world of Ancel Mitchell, herbalist, storyteller, chocolatier, and overall quality human being

In today’s episode, we dive into the value of connecting with & supporting local indigenous communities, various ways that one might prepare a cacao bean, and the value of embracing the mythological roots of our plant medicines. 

Ancel is one of the key players of Finca La Isla, along with her partner Peter Kring from last week’s episode. 

Both of these pioneers have had a lot to share. 

Kick back and enjoy the stories that Ancel lays out for us.  It’ll be time well spent.

Also, we’ve create this awesome downloadable PDF that includes all the best tips and tricks we learned from Ancel in this epsiode. You can download it here: https://regenerationnationcr.com/Ancel-Mitchell-PDF 

 This episode is brought to you by, well, YOU! 

I haven’t built up my audience enough to have attracted sponsors and all that, so even though it’s the holiday season, you get to support the show without my selling you stuff. 

Isn’t that great!  

So, instead of buying an organic cotton shirt or an online course, maybe you can just buy me a coffee!   

Go to https://ko-fi.com/sharinginsights to drop a few dollars in the bucket and let me know you care. 

We’ve provided a pair of unique bonus videos for you, this time. 

I visited Ancel for a late-night beach-side storytelling session, the night following our interview. 

It was really cool. 

She shared a modernized spin on an ancient Greek story of Demeter and a Norweigan tale of Tatterhood. 

I recorded them on audio and have them available for your listening delight on your YouTube Channel:
