A one day workshop
for women, pregnant or planning to be, and birthworkers.
This workshop focuses on the shamanic dimensions of pregnancy, in other words: what lay beneath…
With prior preparation contemplating our life experiences, we will do some shamanic processes to understand the origins of our beliefs, attitudes and fears around birth, seeing the connection between how we were born, our menarche (first period) and the stories about the women in our family, as well as any experiences of pregnancy and giving birth we have had so far.
Then a Letting Go of Fear process and fire ritual and a shamanic drum journey to meet the baby, soul baby or Inner Goddess, to seek guidance, clarity, information etc.
This workshop is for all women. You don’t have to be pregnant or planning to be and there is no prior experience necessary.
*Bring a cushion to sit on, a wrap, your journal and a pen.
