Episode #88: Returning to a relationship with the living world


So many of us are desiring tools and methods to connect with the land we live on. In this episode of the Belonging podcast, I share ways that I’m building a relationship with the living world after feeling like I’ve lost it since entering motherhood. I share about the colonial construct of “nature,” the history of enclosure and the separation of humans from the natural world, holding an animist view of the world, tuning into the land you’re on throughout time, being in relationship with the land by grieving the loss, and practices for connecting with the land.

“Urgency is not helpful in this process of unlearning the separateness from the living world and remembering that you are wild.”

My book Root & Ritual is now available wherever books are sold!

My intention with this book is for it to be your guide to reconnecting 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. Root & Ritual is meant to be a pathway back to connection and wholeness through rituals, recipes, and ancestral wisdom.
