Having just observed Thanksgiving Day in the US, a holiday that can be polarizing in its reminder of historical atrocities yet celebrated as a time of gratitude and family connection, this interview with Becca Piastrelli is both timely and meaningful. In an age of DNA tests and Google, Becca shares ways in which we can connect with our own ancestors more deeply, and face uncomfortable truths with integrity, curiosity, and compassion.
In this interview, Becca shows us how the systems we live in (i.e. capitalism, patriarchy, etc) perpetuate loneliness, disconnection, and “not enough-ness,” and illuminate the importance of ancestral connection in reclaiming a sense of Belonging today.
Becca shares her personal journey with ancestral work, how she is making reparations for colonizer ancestors, & how to connect with ancestors beyond giving a DNA sample. We dive deep into the many ways to connect to your ancestors & re-weave the threads that tie us to all those who came before us.
Becca is a writer, womxn's coach, and host of the Belonging podcast. She holds space for womxn to explore ancestral wisdom, connect with the earth, and find meaningful and inclusive sisterhood.
