Birthing from within WORKSHOPS

The intensive workshops, open to all birth-related professionals, will cover the following material, and much more:
• Birth as a rite of passage, and the childbearing year as a hero’s journey—what this means and why it is important;
• How to prepare women for birth following the hero’s journey model;
• How to build a solution-focused mindset that helps women (and their partners) cope with pain, fatigue, and the unknown in labor and postpartum;
• Teaching and mentoring to prevent emotional birth trauma;
• Utilizing Masculine/Feminine polarity to facilitate labor and postpartum;
• How to lead a Special Class Just for Fathers.
This is a warm, fast-moving workshop. It inspires beginners, validates and deepens what the experienced know, and uplifts the jaded and weary ones.

A midwife in Oregon says of our workshop: “I loved the book Birthing From Within, and began using some ideas and exercises in my appointments with parents. I thought the workshop might be nice. The workshop was amazing—more mind-blowing than the book! We went much deeper and further than I thought possible. My work is forever changed.”
