piedratext

In the isolated mountains of provincia del Bolivar in Ecuador, lives 

Maria Matilde Auxiliadora Cunalata, a seer, a cleanser of souls, a dancer

a clown, a Yachaj.

She belongs to the waranka lineage, a group that predates the Incas, and is 

one of the remaining yachajs (healers) practicing what her elders practiced for 

centuries while sharing it with those who are willing to walk with her.

 

MaMatilde, as she is known, lives between worlds; days and nights shift in

service to ceremonies for healing the body and mind, yet she flows through power

believing that all life is sacred and we must embrace everything that brings.

 

Piedra Redonda is not a documentary project it is an ode to my teacher,

to my grandmothers and all the healers that walk far and wide in this earth.
