The Sacred Elemental Birth Worker workshop is a hands on workshop that puts together the head knowledge of being a birth worker with the hands and heart knowledge that is NEEDED to understand and honor the space of birth.
In 2018, the Sacred Elemental Birth Worker workshop is being held in Leesville, Louisiana on the land I live.
It is a 2.5 day intense workshop that integrates the elements into our work.
The workshop is held on Mabon weekend - September 21-23.
The schedule is as follows:
Friday - Fire Element - Connection
Day runs from 3-9pm
Saturday - Earth & Water Elements - Prenatal Work and Labor
Day runs from 8am - 8/9 pm
Sunday - Air Element - Postpartum
Day runs from 8 am - 4 pm
We will cover not only the comfort techniques and education usually covered with birth workers but also herbs, aromatherapy, flower essences, moxibustion, and Reiki.
Families are welcome to come to the land and camp at no extra charge. We have a 14' tipi for rent for $60 for the entire weekend. Keep in mind that the land is fairly primitive but we are about 20 minutes from town with all the amenities of modern living.
Meals, snacks, and drinks are included for the women, families attending will be responsible for their own meals. If you are interested in cooking for the group in exchange for a greatly reduced fee, please contact me.
Cost is currently TBD but there is a reduced fee/free spot for women of color. Payment plans are available.
If you are taking the whole Sacred Elemental Birth Worker program, the workshop is part of your total fee.
All attendees will receive a certificate of completion for the workshop, regardless of if you are taking part of the whole program or not - although I do highly encourage you to take the whole program.
