Plunging Puget Sound with Renate Rain

My guest on this show is mother and grandmother, Renate Rain. She is the convener and healer behind the Puget Sound Plungers and certified Deliberate Cold Exposure guide. Renate described herself as just a person looking for relief from chronic pain when she slipped into the cool waters of Puget Sound. Alleviating pain came along with an ever-growing community she didn't even know she needed.

What is Puget Sound and how cool is it? Puget Sound is a “sound” of the Pacific Northwest, an inlet of the Pacific Ocean, and part of the Salish Sea. The cool measurement is an average annual temperature of about 10° C (50° F). Cool, clean water is the lifeblood of this complex estuarine system of interconnected marine waterways and basins, with myriad connections to the open Pacific Ocean.
