I am now offering Sacred Pregnancy classes! After attending a recent retreat in Ojai, CA, I am now a Certified Sacred Pregnancy Instructor, and will be offering classes starting in January 2013. Here’s a little more information about what you can expect in our classes:
Your Sacred Pregnancy is a journey. Our classes hold space for pregnant women to connect with one another and their pregnancy experiences in meaningful and personal ways. Sacred Pregnancy groups are being held all around the world and are the new wave of the pregnancy + birthing future. We are hell bent on changing the birth conversation as Sacred Pregnancy classes bring back the age old tradition of women sitting with one another during pregnancy and birth, getting empowered, witnessing each others process and BEING there for one another during an incredibly power-FULL rite of passage…becoming mothers.
Sacred Pregnancy classes are a special place for pregnant women to gather together, for 8 weeks early on in their pregnancy journeys and again for 4 weeks toward the end of their pregnancies. Each week is spent exploring pertinent topics that naturally arise for most women as they walk down their pregnancy paths and encourage deep sharing, exploring art, expression, laughter, honoring and celebration.
Pregnancy is one of the deepest drinks life has to offer. Each woman’s pregnancy pot gets stirred with various emotions and we all need a safe place to process those tides and sip some sanity from the community cauldron.
