024: Suffering is Real and It's Not Your Fault with Becca Piastrelli

Mar 30, 2021

Motherhood can be a mixture of suffering and joy and most of the time, our culture does not permit suffering as a norm... Only joy. It is usually and unfortunately shameful for new mothers to experience postpartum that is deeply rooted within our culture. In this episode, Becca Piastrelli talks about her journey to motherhood, her career, and ancestral paths.
Becca Piastrelli is a writer, coach, and host of the Belonging podcast. She holds space for women to explore ancestral wisdom, connect with the earth, and find meaningful and inclusive communities. In the age of loneliness, Becca shows us how to feel like we truly belong - to each other, to the earth, to a lineage, and to ourselves.
