While searching for a lead image for this week’s episode with Eve Ensler, I discovered this incredible photo by Agung Parameswara. The episode’s title? “A Second Wind in Life: Eve Ensler on Inhabiting the Body After Cancer” in which the author of “The Vagina Monologues” talks about her violent childhood, about women being obsessed by their bodies and yet not inhabiting them, and how cancer helped her make peace with her own.

In the photo, a Balinese Hindu devotee performs the Melukat ritual during full moon at Sebatu holy waterfall in Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia. The Melukat ritual, where devotees bathe in the holy water of a spring, waterfall, or other water source believed to have the apropriate cleansing power for purification, is a symbolical and literal cleansing of the body and soul aimed at preventing misfortune and bad luck, including sickness or havoc caused by daily activities and sins.
