Sacred Pregnancy Journey
What is Sacred Pregnancy?
Sacred Pregnancy is a beautiful and unique way to honour the journey from pregnancy to birth. This retreat-style workshop focuses on preparing pregnant women for birth through connecting to the emotional and energetic self. The intention of the weekend is to leave with a newfound sense of confidence in your body’s intuitive knowing to birth, greater connection and sisterhood that can be carried through to postpartum, and a lighter heart released of fear, anxiety, and concern for what rests ahead. We aim to reignite the sacredness of pregnancy & birth that has been lost in our current culture and truly honour pregnancy and the entrance of women into motherhood.
Saturdays Oct 27 - Dec 15th: 545-815pm (no class Nov 17 or Dec 1)
Deadline to apply: Oct 20th
