Everyone has been touched by a birth story. Birth stories influence what we believe, trust, and fear.  Processing our birth stories should be an integral part of prenatal and postpartum care. During this uplifting three-and-a half day retreat you will experience several transformative birth story processes. Seeing is understanding: witness the discovery of hidden healings during live demonstrations. 

You will also experience and learn:

  • A heart meditation
  • The power of healing in small group sessions with the Shell in the Labyrinth
  • To follow the “map” of the heroic journey while leading a birth story session
  • Turn a story using mythopoetic inquiry
  • How to lessen birth shock and trauma
  • Learn from studies how processing birth stories influences birth outcomes
  • Birth story in the body: Restoring health and harmony after a traumatic birth
  • Microbiome, diet, and trauma recovery 
  • Dinner and storytelling in the high desert
