Essential practices, tools and foods that root us.
Resilience, “the ability of something to return to its original shape after it’s been pulled, stretched, pressed, and bent,” remains an elusive pursuit during traumatic times. If you pull, stress, press and bend something that is not rooted, it will either break, or get pulled along with the force that it’s being subjected to.
Resilience assumes we are already rooted. However, many women have lost a connection to our roots. More specifically, we have lost a connection to that which brings us back into balance, into a state of interconnected physical, emotional, mental, and behavioral well-being.
