'Binnie and Elmer have created a magical and sacred space in which to integrate a new perspective and a model of self-care that resonates deep within. A truly life-changing experience' - V.S, participant, 2019.
In this 20-day course, you will develop the capacity to listen and be present to self and others through profound healing and integration of the early experiences of conception, gestation, birth, and early childhood.
Each of us has a deeply held experience of conception, pregnancy, birth, and early childhood - 'our first 1000 days'. When we are willing to enquire into this rich and often unconscious realm of personal and collective psychology, we gain access to the foundations of our creative potential. This awareness makes us more available to being with others, both professionally and in close relationships. This will take place in a gentle, safe, and supportive environment in which you can remember, release, and examine the impact, reward, and healing energy inherent in your own birth process, while learning to facilitate that process in others.
We will work with experiential source process and breathwork, birth process work models, prenatal and perinatal psychology and physiology theory, guided meditation, forgiveness practice, small and large group work, and somatic and trauma psychology practice.
Participants will receive mentoring throughout the duration of the training.
