The Soul's Guide to Birthing course is an experiential training for those called to work as a doula in conscious conception, soulful pregnancy, and blissful birth. It is also a wonderful initiation for women and men wanting to be more empowered on their own birthing journey. This course is based on the book, "The Soul's Guide to Birthing: Handbook for a New Humanity, described as a ‘twenty-first century Birthing Bible,’ bringing together modern science and ancient wisdom.
This course is a thorough initiation into being a 'soul midwife.' A midwife is one who walks between worlds, through the realms of birth and death. Being a soul midwife equipts one with the embodiment, skills, artistry and inner foundation to truly support and guide others through this sacred doorway of birth, and all that it entails in the fulll blueprint of parenting as a spiritual pathway.
A womb centered awareness is essential for a birthing guide. When she is deeply situated in her womb, she can authentically guide her clients from a centered, loving, and clear place. She can offer a deep container of soul resonance for both parents and baby to emerge and embody. This capacity is deeply nourishing and in conneciton with a larger harmony and unconditional place of service honoring the highest potential for each soul involved.
Also essential is a clear understanding of both the phisiological and emotional aspects of the birthing journey from the soul's perspective. Many pregnancy challenges, birth complications and post pardem depressions are prevented with the application of the wider 'soul science' of birth. A soul midwife expands the experience of birthing beyond the body and mind, beyond hospital and cultural norms, into the creative and organic expression of a couple and their incoming child.
This nine month online journey with retreat delves deep into ancient rituals, practical exercises, and close mentorship to distill and develop your own gifts in the birthing field in a soul embodied way. The journey also has a strong emphasis on the practical application of meditations and practices for the clients on the birthing journey to help the couple heal, communicate, vision, and manifest through out preconception, pregnancy, and birth. She will be well equipt to give parents the tools and confidence to embark on their own heart felt and engaged journey through one of life’s most sacred initiations.
Conscious birthing is transformative, a timeless and shamanic Rite of Passage for the whole family that catalyses man, woman and child into their next step in evolution. It is requires both art and skill to hold the necessary shamanic space of a soul midwife.
The wisdom conveyed in this course ignites one of woman’s deepest secrets: the power to awaken and embody her own soul through birthing her child. Yet for too long, birthing has been known as women’s only business. The role of the father is essential and empowering. This course equipts guides with the tools to guide others through the new emotions and challenges that arise in pregnancy, so they may all enjoy the growth, healing, joy and love that family brings. It is from the deep foundation of family, that souls can birth themselves into the world.
The online forum with daily practices is an opportunity for daily guidance and connection with Shekinah and other students. The retreat is designed to deepen students in their own womb embodiment as well as more experientially train them in the practices to be shared with their clients. It is also an opportunity to build relationships with others committed to this new birthing paradigm.
This course is open to the general public and will include a Doula certification for those wishing to become certified Doulas in the birthing field. Participants upon completion will be certified to guide families in the way of Soul's Guide Birthing using the practices and rituals covered in the course.
Retreat will be held on the Big Island of Hawaii in February 2020.
Conscious birthing is a sexual and spiritual pathway returning with the renaissance of feminine consciousness and earth centred wisdom.
