The Resource Center is excited to offer a free birth story healing workshop to moms that have experienced a difficult or traumatic birth of a child.
A highly recommended doula and childbirth educator, Barrie Rein Thuneman (http://www.fullmoonbirthseattle.com/barrie-rein-thunemann/), will be facilitating the workshop. The workshop will be from 9 am-1 pm on Saturday, October 21, and the location is still to be determined. We plan to provide childcare if we hear that it is needed, since we would like for only moms to come to the workshop (no children).
Here is a little bit about what you might expect from the workshop, but Barrie is also happy to adjust it based on the needs of the group:
-Creating personal labyrinths on paper with pastels (metaphor for the journey of labor, birth and parenting)
-Storytelling (sharing great stories as a tool for finding new meaning and personal reflection)
-Birth story medicine work to assist individuals in reframing and finding new meaning in their birth experiences
-Time for personal reflection and journaling
-Group processes to facilitate connection amongst the group members
We would like moms to feel comfortable attending and sharing at it, so we will try to keep the workshop to about 10 moms (max).
Please spread the word to moms that you think might be interested!
