A beautifully illustrated guide for connecting with the earth, your ancestors, and your communities as you come home to your whole self.
Despite our best efforts, our modern world leaves so many of us feeling isolated, unworthy, and alone. We’re unrooted from the land, untethered from our lineages, disconnected from our communities, and separated from our deepest sense of self.
In Root and Ritual, Becca Piastrelli offers a pathway back to connection and wholeness through rituals, recipes, and ancestral wisdom.
In Part 2, you’ll learn to reclaim the gifts of your lineage as you understand past harms and explore the traditional folklore, foods, and arts of those who came before
In Part 4, you’ll return to yourself as you open your intuition, tune in to your body, and awaken the wild woman within
Part 1 introduces practices for reconnecting with the land, including seasonal recipes, crafting with plants, and tending your home
Part 3 centers around community, helping you cultivate sisterhood and celebrate meaningful rites of passage
A brilliantly written book exploring the ancestral traditions that help women reconnect to their power, the land, and the important role they have held in cultures as spiritual leaders and healers. And an important book for the times we live in.
This book will find you grabbing a soft blanket and warm cup of tea and curling up on the couch as you follow Becca’s wise, loving voice into the deepest parts of yourself—secret gardens, overgrown dreams, whimsical cottages in the woods. But beware! Only read this book if you are ready for your longing to take deeper root in your life.
This book is an indulgence to read. The illustrations are beautiful. There are many practical ways to create space for more connection, healing and awareness. With each page I am inspired toward a more awakened and abundant way of living. It would also be great to read together with another person or small group.
If you find yourself at odds with the values of a society that emphasizes separation, consumerism, and disconnection from lineage, land, and self, and long for something deeper, more lasting, and true, this book is a beautiful resource to guide you back home. The illustrations are gorgeous and every word feels like a remembering of Who We Really Are and why we’re really here. Root and Ritual helps us to see that it is our birthright to belong in this world and to each other.
We need connection. Our human need to connect is in our blood, our hearts, our everything. It’s in the stories we read, the stories we tell. It’s in how we show up in the world, for others, for ourselves. It’s how we’re here, and why we’re here. And Root & Ritual reflects all of this connection so profoundly, so beautifully.
This book, while addressing how we’ve become disconnected in the modern world, is even more relevant during the pandemic where we have been forced to spend more time at home and alone. It is a great read for anyone who feels like they’re on their own. Broken into four parts, you will learn to connected in meaningful ways to yourself, your past, your community and the land. Well written, this book is food for the soul.
