Disconnection From Our Ancestral Lineage Can Also Be An Opportunity

For those of us who feel deficient, ashamed, or like we are lacking in connection to our ancestral lineage, for those of us who feel that we are in a dark time due to our collective disconnection from our ancestral, indigenous, or “traditional” cultures, maybe we actually are enough, maybe we are doing enough, maybe that disconnection provides an opportunity.

I don’t think it’s necessarily a problem that many of us are disconnected from ancestral, indigenous, or “traditional” cultures.
