Remembering You Aren’t Alone: Part One of a Special Hearthfire Conversation

I have a very special, two-part conversation for you today coming to you from inside the Hearthfire community.

Hearthfire is my virtual healing and support space for us to devote ourselves to this work of creating a life for ourselves that truly nourishes us. We seek to create lives that are in deeper integrity, that have us being better ancestors, that have us healing the wounds from living in systems of oppression that have us holding ourselves back in a time where our voices and our actions and our hearts are deeply needed.

This episode is a recording of one of our regular calls in Hearthfire where we might practice the art of witnessing, do rituals, do meditations, learn from guest speakers, or have deep and meaningful conversations like the one you’ll hear here.

In this first part, you’ll hear us talk about what’s been a challenge in each of our journeys with cultivating a deeper sense of belonging in our lives. We talk about navigating friendship, the very real experience of loss and grief (and the subsequent relationship losses that come with it), how to better support one who is grieving, remembering we are never alone, and the loneliness of the mothering journey.

“Finding out that there is even a dialogue or that there are even others like us sitting here who are seeking belonging — that in and of itself is empowering. We are not alone in our loneliness.” -Justine Hearn


In this conversation, you heard the voices of:


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.
