As women we hold many stories in our wombs. This group led by Mavis Gewant will use mandala, storytelling, meditation and the creative process as a way to heal our stories and create new ones.
Many women suffer trauma as the result of a difficult birth. Perhaps you were mistreated by the staff, felt a lack of support or had an unexpected outcome. In a safe and nurturing environment women will get in touch with their birth trauma and begin the healing journey. The creative process is a valuable tool for transformation, the use of sacred art, writing, guided imagery and telling our stories, will help us heal and move forward.
Who will benefit:
v Women who are overwhelmed by their birth experience
v Women who had a c-section and want a vbac
v Women who are planning another pregnancy and want to move forward
v Women who are not planning another pregnancy and want to release sorrow in their heart
v Women who are having problems with bonding and nurturing their baby
This group will help you:
v Celebrate your wisdom, power and strength
v Release the energy and fear around your birth story
v Experience the power of forgiveness
v Recover trust in yourself
v Learn stress coping techniques
v Reconnect with your baby
