WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE
We'll talk about the importance of your own space during this journey; Art Project: Creating our own Sacred Candle. Moving into our expectations and connection with this pregnancy and baby; meditation, journaling and a heart to heart connection build the bond between women. Break for lunch and a woods walk before moving into our past and current relationship with food. Thought, journaling & making menu cards deepens our awareness and associations with food history. Discussing the image of our pregnant body and the emotional and physical changes we go through, we learn to honor this body that grows your baby and produces milk! Thinking about our relationship with our partners we'll do a watercolor project. Many ideas will be covered that you can take home to share with your beloved. We will burn our fears in the forest replacing them with powerful silk graffiti art exchanging our fears for positive intentions. Forgiving our past and making a power stick helps us move forward in our journey. Enjoy an honoring ceremony where you will be pampered with indulging health practices, relaxing to feel emotionally prepared for birth. Preparing for the postpartum period is an important topic where you learn some sealing & healing methods for closing your birth during your baby moon. Snacks will be available throughout both days and we'll break for a 1 hour lunch. The forest setting is perfect for reflection for a woods walk during lunch. Enjoy a serene setting in the pine forest, surrounded by beauty, serenity and life impacting surroundings. Gift of a swag bag with lots of useful ditties to all who attend ("A small bag that contains various odds and ends" Urban Dictionary). Come away refreshed and prepared for one of the grandest journeys of your life!
