Do you think of nature, your own ancestral roots, your home, or to you does it mean finding yourself again? 2020 provided a time where many found themselves taking root by reconnecting with their home, nature, identity, values, etc. Others, however, might be feeling the exact opposite. The past year also brought chaos to many. Some might have been experiencing difficulties with housing, school, work, borders, relationships, health, and much more. Many have found themselves completely uprooted and faced with the challenge of healing as they simultaneously try to ground themselves this new year.
