Mayara grew up in Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil. Surrounded by millions of people, technology, and everything the modern world can offer, she still felt empty. In search of answers, she went back to the roots of Brazil, to indigenous quilombolas and rural communities. On this journey, she met women who showed her how the wisdom of the past can heal the future. They are traditional midwives, healers, and community leaders. They are keepers of an ancient knowledge that we can’t afford to lose. She calls them Women of Earth.
