A VIRTUAL Healing & Support Space
reclaim a life that truly nourishes you
…so you can break the cycles of overwhelm, loneliness,
and disconnection from yourself and your community.
YOU WILL SEE ME REFER TO THIS SPACE AS A CIRCLE
—what do I mean by that?
The symbolism of a circle is ancient. The moon is a circle. A cauldron is a circle. Often when you set a sacred space, you imagine yourself encircled in energy for your safety and protection.
In Hearthfire, we circle in community. We are encircled by the magic our ancestors once knew and that we are reclaiming again. We circle as equals because, in this space, we honor each other as sovereign beings on the path to our own healing.
So circle in, beloved kin.
- Circle with me in front of the hearth, with its flames crackling and smoke spiraling up to the stars in the sky.
- Circle with all of us as we look into each other’s eyes and receive each other’s deep presence.
- Circle here to join us in the important work of breaking the cycles our ancestors could not.
- Circle with us as we empower ourselves to re-enchant the world and each other.
- Circle in this space as we midwife a new world into being.
This circle cannot be broken.
IT’S TIME TO REMEMBER THE PARTS OF YOU THAT YOU’VE LOST & RECLAIM YOUR ROOTED SELF
When I speak of ‘BELONGING’…
I am talking about a bone-deep sense of feeling home. When we feel a sense of belonging to ourselves, to the wild, to what we come from, and to each other, we liberate ourselves from the shackles of loneliness and unworthiness.
We use so much of precious time and energy trying to effort ourselves through life on our own. We struggle to reach out for support when we need it.
We are afraid of our own power, often shrinking for the comfort of others.
I’m so tired of repeating that pattern in my life, aren’t you? Our mothers and grandmothers are tired of carrying this burden too.
It’s time to claim what is rightfully ours in this one precious life we have.
Hearthfire is for the woman or non-binary being who is ready to come fully into their own self.
You are ready to journey with your own sense of belonging so you can show up more deeply for yourself and be held while you are doing the holding.
You are ready to break the cycles of oppression, and you are ready to do it in a sacred space as you navigate these times.
This is ancestral healing work. This is the work of re-wilding. This is resilience practice. This is magic making. This is ancient wisdom reclamation.
And it is needed now more than ever.
We are a group of beings who are ready to dig deep and devote ourselves to this vital work while holding each other through it in a sacred space.
You aren’t broken because you don’t have that ideal circle of soulful, empowered community around you right now.
The system we’ve been brought up in is broken and most of us haven’t been taught how to create a sense of belonging in our lives. We need you to engage in this work to rise up and participate in our collective liberation.
One of the false stories our society perpetuates is that we’re too weird for wanting this kind of connection in our lives.
But you know what I’ve noticed over the years of embodying this work?
Most folks want this too, whether they’re using the same language as you or not. Part of this work is doing it alongside people who are doing this work too and won’t be judging you for what you uncover, reveal, or express.
By deepening this exploration, you’ll notice that the people in your life are more open to this way of being than you think. You will not only be doing this for yourself to heal the wounds your ancestors never could, but you will also be magnetizing like-hearted people to you!
You will become a beacon of light for deep healing and leadership.

How Members Describe the space2>
It’s a women’s circle for people who are exploring how to live with the seasons of the earth, learn how to show up authentically in all moods, and learn how to ask for and hold space for others.
It’s like all your aunties, sisters, and kin from around the world are all having tea together, all the time. It’s community magick.
It’s a loving and supportive online space that supports my personal journey and helps me focus on and deepen my relationship to my core values, my true self, and personal challenges in life.

IS THIS THE SPACE FOR YOU?
You’ve always felt a sense of connection to the numinous, the great mystery of this life, but all the other programs you’ve looked at didn’t seem to contain enough depth and connection in it
You’re over facebook groups and want to cultivate community and connection in a different way online
You’re aware of the tendency for spiritual bypassing, cultural appropriation, and trauma insensitivity in spiritual work and you’re ready to do this work in a more aware and discerning way
You’re ready to put down the blueprints and dogmas that other spiritual paths provide and fully devote yourself to navigating your own unique and exquisitely designed journey of belonging
You want a place to experiment and explore belonging so that you can bring it to your own community and maybe even begin a circle and moonth-ly gathering where you live
You feel fully committed to unraveling all the tales society tells you about why you aren’t good enough, smart enough, or lovable enough for this world. It’s time to end that cycle in your lineage with you
You desire to live your life by the ebbs and flows of the seasons and cycles of the earth and moon (but like…for real)
You have a deep craving for a sacred container to do this work because all the oracle cards and journaling and spiritual Instagram posts are no substitute for a space of devoted practice and supportive sisterhood
You want to look at resolving ancestral trauma from colonization, the burning times, and patriarchal dogma
You want to dive deeper into to traditions and practices of your own ancestral lineages and weave them into your daily life
You’ve got a song in your throat and the beat of the drum in your heart, and you desperately want to let them out
You want to practice and maintain healthy relationships after years of toxic patterns of relating, even with those you love
You don’t have a lot of in-person friends or community that “get” this stuff and you just want to be able to talk about it without feeling shame or fear of judgment
You are so tired of distracting yourself with busyness, using the pursuit of perfection, and trying to outrun your inner critic that the life you really want to claim just keeps getting further and further away from you.
You are excited (and if you’re honest, a little nervous) about going to the deeper places of discomfort and vulnerability because you feel your desire to deeply devote yourself to a new way of being
If any of these resonate with you, know that you belong in Hearthfire

I am Becca Piastrelli
Your guide here in Hearthfire
I’ve dedicated my life and work to supporting women in experiencing a deep sense of belonging through connecting with the cycles of nature, ancestral wisdom, working with their hands, and being in meaningful community. I have seen it set them free time and time again, going on to start circles in their towns, quit their toxic jobs, and shift the dynamics of their relationships.
This work is deep and ancient and powerful. I’m here to hold the most exquisite space for your time in Hearthfire, with the intention to inspire you to come closer home to yourself, connect with you on a deep level, guide you into potent ritual space, and keeping it real with belly laughs and dance parties. I’m at your back supporting you in stepping into your authentic, wisest self, while cultivating beautiful connection along the way.
I am a woman of known ancestry of British, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, French, German, and eastern European origins, flowing further back to the Celtic, Pict, Norse, and Anglo Saxon tribes (and the nameless ones going even further than that). I am a straight cis-woman in a long-term, monogamous, heterosexual partnership with a cis-man of Balkan and eastern European descent. I am able-bodied with “invisible” health burdens related to autoimmune conditions born of my journey to conceive my child. I have access to education, healthcare, and safe housing without substantial worry of lifelong debt. I practice an earth-based spirituality rooted in the ancestral lineages of pre-Christian Old Europe. With gratitude, I live on the ancestral lands of the Coast Miwok and Southern Pomo indigenous people — known today as the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria — near Mount Tamalpais and the Point Reyes seashore.
Honoring my teachers
Deep gratitude to Nisha Moodley, for holding me through 2 years of deep unraveling of my old programming and showing and teaching me what it means to be in sacred sisterhood.
To Katina Mercadante, whose guidance, friendship, and continued support in our empowerment work keeps me on the path of my true core virtue and digging even deeper into how that manifests in the world.
To Liz Migliorelli, whose teaching opened up the portal to connecting with my own European earth-based indigenous roots and with the plants from a deeply rooted space that continues to serve my work in the world.
To Rain Crowe, whose teaching supported me through an even deeper integration of our history and how to apply it to my work today.
To Lara Veleda Vesta, whose teaching on ancestral connection has helped me go deeper in my own ancestral journey to achieve a gnosis that could only be mine.
To Jean Shinoda Bolen, whose book, The Millionth Circle, has helped guide me in the principles of circle holding.
To Shelby Leigh, whose work with Creating Safe Space has helped me to be a more trauma-informed facilitator.
To Jerrigrace Lyons, whose work in conscious dying and death midwifery has supported me in grief literacy and knowledge of rituals in death.
To Grandmother Sarah McLean Bicknell, whose mentorship in indigenous dreaming, ancestral constellation, and returning to indigenous earth ways has supported me deeply.
Gratitude to Rachael Alaia for inspiring more honest and transparent words on this page.
The financial exchange for Hearthfire is $97/month.
What we’re offering you every week, year-round in Hearthfire costs less the cost of a single therapy session on a monthly basis. You are worth that level of investment, for your care, for your heart, for your ancestors, and for your community.
Doors to Hearthfire close in:
To set yourself up for success, we recommend setting aside one sacred hour per week to engage with the practices and connect with the community. To get the complete experience and best results of this program, we strongly encourage you to stay for a year or one turn of the wheel. You can do this, I know you can.
A CLOSING BLESSING
May we end the patterns of holding ourselves back from healing because we aren’t enough – pretty enough, energetic enough, ambitious enough, healthy enough, worthy enough to feel truly liberated and loved in this world.
May we hear the cries of our foremothers who are tired of carrying this burden alongside us. May we feel belonging in our bodies. May we feel belonging in the wild. May we feel belonging to who and what we come from. May we feel belonging with each other.
May we set ourselves free and finally find home. May we sit together to do the healing work
In this and every effort, may the balance be regained. And so it is.

Who is welcome in this space?
How often will we receive new materials as a member?
What is your refund policy? Can I cancel at any time?
Is it a one time fee or do I pay monthly?
Hearthfire is a membership-based group program that will auto-charge your credit card $97 monthly.
When can I expect my monthly payments to be billed?
I barely have enough time to take care of myself day to day. Will this even work for me?
What’s also true is that, as much as life can feel hard with packed calendars and navigating budgets, we are alive in a time when our time and money is a true reflection of where our values lie. So many of us wait for that day when our calendars clear up and a windfall of cash falls from the sky, but we’ll likely be waiting for the rest of our lives if we live that way.
Unless we make a conscious commitment to what it is we truly crave in our lives (deeper connection with like-hearted folks, living more intentionally with the seasons, finding a feeling of home in ourselves, and a sense of bone-deep worthiness that guides us to be more resilient and focused in our purpose), all that we desire will never manifest. It will sit in the file folders of our brains labeled someday and that is a hard way to live.
I get it—our culture has a lot of shame around making this deeper work a priority in our lives. But the system as it is no longer serves us—we agree on that.
I’m inviting you to join Hearthfire in deep commitment to yourself and to clearing these blocks that are holding you back from feeling bone-deep magic and well-being in your life. It’s time, and you’re worth it.
