- What is it in you that wants to be nourished? What it is it that wants your love, attention, attunement in this moment?
To answer these questions, we must go to the source: your body. The pregnant body begs, if not demands to be heard and supported. Your body asks you to listen. Herein lies your greatest preparation for birth.
- This six week practice is an invitation to step into a way of being with your body that begins with deep listening and invites expression. Here, you are held in a womb-like space so that you may experience the evolution of your own soul as you prepare to meet and Mother the soul that grows inside you. Together, we will explore and express the edges of pregnancy as a way of preparing for the edges of birth and motherhood.
- Through movement, meditation, breath work, reflection, creative expression and ritual, you will be invited into a practice of being with your pregnant body fully so that you may be empowered to direct and support the birth of your child and the birth of yourself as Mother. This is not a childbirth class or birthing method but rather an exploration of the wisdom that is coming through your experience of holding life in your belly.
