The definition of RADICLE is: "the first part of a seedling (a growing plant embryo) to emerge from the seed during the process of germination. The radicle is the embryonic root of the plant, and grows downward in the soil..."
ROOTED IS RADICLE > In this day and age, being rooted - in ourselves, our bodies, the earth, and our immediate communities - is a radical act. It means we often say no the cultural narratives that tell us we don't own ourselves, but rather belong to the ideas and popular mores of our society. It's a rejection of the story of dependency we are indoctrinated into from birth on big systems, often motivated by profit and control, that keep us out of power within ourselves and our families. But when we ROOT into this new version of living -one that is based in truth, freedom, health, growth, connection and spirituality - we are REVIVED. We return to our true selves, without all the stories of what we are supposed to do and believe. Get rooted, be revived.

I love every episode so far!
Loving this new show. It’s so refreshing and I can’t wait for more episodes.
There are podcasts like this one that I enjoy. But this host is very rude and ignorant about the topics she is presenting. She said that her schooling was a complete waste of time. Fine, but she also said that the teachers she had are horrible, dysfunctional human beings not deserving of being called mentor or guide. What a jerk! No thank you!
