    90. Rites of Passage for All of Us

    27:02

    I've gotten some questions from Belonging podcast listeners about rites of passage, especially if you've left a religion that previously offered a sense of rites of passage and ritual, or how to cultivate rites of passage when we don't have that religious or cultural foundation. This is something I've touched on before on the Belonging podcast, and I'm sharing my thoughts now after going through a major rite of passage myself. I share how I'm fulfilling my need for ritual and community witnessing around pretty important things that are happening in my life, what to do when you're feeling a lack of rites of passage in your life, using social media as a way to be witnessed in the midst of a transformation, the three elements of a rite of passage, and creating a ritual for a past rite of passage that didn't get recognition at the time.

    89. How I don't find balance in my daily life

    26:17

    In this episode of Belonging, I'm sharing what my life looks like now on the other side of birth for any of you who are wondering what life looks like as a new parent or who are struggling to find the elusive balance. I share how I (attempt to) balance business, mothering, self-care, and partnership, what motherhood looks like now one year in, how my greatest lesson in this time is patience, my feelings of panic from aging and time passing, and how I deal with feeling incompetent and like I can't keep up.

    88. Returning to a relationship with the living world

    31:53

    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.

    87. On Mothering & Eco-Grief

    32:14

    In this episode of Belonging, I'm sharing the complicated thoughts and feelings I'm experiencing being a mother — choosing to bring a child into this world — and living in a time of climate collapse. I share somatic tools for how I'm dealing with the anxiety and grief of these times, questioning if it's ethical to bring a child into this world, building community care and knowing your neighbors, and conjuring curiosity to find out what you need to know rather than catastrophizing.

    86. How I Pitched & Wrote a Book (+ had a baby at the same time)

    36:21

    I've had many questions and curiosities about my book, the book writing process, and how I got my book published, so this episode of the Belonging podcast is the full story of what went into the creation and publication of Root & Ritual. I share when I first felt the calling to write a book, being in integrity with the why of writing a book (and not just because I wanted to feel successful and important), the lineage healing story that went into writing a book, finding a book agent, writing (and re-writing) a book proposal, pitching the book and getting rejected, writing a book while pregnant, what no one talks about: getting help to write a book, my actual writing process, and the tools I used to write.

    85. Why I Took a Mama Sabbatical

    29:36

    I have slowly emerged from my cocoon here in this outward facing internet space after taking a much-needed and restorative three-month mama sabbatical. My time was spent making my life as small and as energetically boundaried as possible so I could catch my breath, be with my baby as she turned one year old, and orient myself back to center enough to feel in my body again. I am now seeing how moving through this rite of passage of having a child has woven me even more deeply into alignment with the seasons and cycles of my wild body and spirit. So this episode of Belonging is a solo episode where I share how this time has been for me. I talk about the importance of admitting when you're over-capacity, recognizing when you're putting yourself last (especially as a parent), re-negotiating identity (why am I doing this?), being willing to question everything, my need to be seen as transforming, and coping with my grief by learning to make my world small.

    84. Layers of Liberation in the Web of Being with Kathryn Fink

    1:44:44

    This episode of Belonging is a swapcast with Kathryn Fink of The Heart is a Cauldron. Kathryn believes in a world where each of us lives in deep connection — with our wild soul, our purpose, and our place in the wondrous web of being. To magic this world into reality, they sew an untamed array of seeds into the soil of their work as a mentor, podcaster, and queer mystic — weaving together animist ethics and enchantment, trauma-informed Buddhist psychology, transformational coaching, reverence for the mythic spirit and ancestral folkways, a devotion to justice, and a lifetime of living in the liminal. Together in this episode, we talk about the tender and vulnerable ways we have learned about belonging, belonging as a radical antidote to Empire, the perversion of belonging in toxic religious spaces, finding belonging and sacred connection in the places churches have been built (atop ancient sacred sites), what we've learned about belonging through podcasting, approaching belonging when someone disagrees with you, how to find belonging in a time such as this, and creating personal rituals and living practices around grief.

    82. Mothering as Ancestral Reverence with Megan McGuire

    1:04:09

    Megan McGuire is a mother, partner, permaculture gardener, and ritual weaver living on the lands of the Dakota people near Kaposia. Her ancestors have tended the Mississippi River for many generations, and she continues to steward this river in her day job as a biologist with the federal government. Megan is on a long journey to reclaim the earth-honoring practices of her European ancestors — especially their seasonal rituals and holy days — and to wed these practices to her local bioregion. She seeks to belong herself to the land and waters through devotion, ritual, and activism. Together we talk about finding belonging to the land you live on as a mother, teaching children about death and including them in grieving to allow them the opportunity to have a relationship with the dead, mothering as ritual, spiritual connection, and ancestor veneration, detangling from harmful aspects of Religion, and bringing ancestral European birth traditions to the modern day.

    81. Natural Rhythms & Regeneration for Breaking the Collective Trauma Spell with Rachael Maddox

    1:01:32

    We are living in a time of collective trauma and that is exactly what I'm talking about with my guest, Rachael Maddox, in this episode of Belonging. Rachael Maddox is a trauma resolution educator, coach, and guide who’s helped hundreds of humans move from sexual, complex or developmental trauma into pleasure, power, and trust-filled relationships. Rachael teaches and mentors other coaches, healers, and therapists who are devoted to trauma-informed, radically inclusive, pleasure-positive approaches to changing lives and culture. Together in this episode, we talk about how we are living inside prolonged panic of collective trauma right now, how to define secure attachment through a somatic/nervous system lens, how to tune into our range of resilience and regulation, how we begin to build stories and identities around our physiological responses and the collective trauma bonding we're having with folks who have similar trauma responses, post-traumatic growth, feeling the collective need for collective grieving, finding the smallest way to mobilize, the desire for revillaging and what makes it so difficult in practice, and finding our center of sovereignty in order to truly be in regenerative community and building it at the right scale.
