FREE ONLINE CLASS: Rites of Passage & the Postpartum Period
Sunday, October 28th, 2018
12-1pm Mountain Time
Birth stretches us WIDE open as women on all levels. Because of the immensity of this experience, birth is being re-membered as a ‘rite of passage.’
In a complete ‘rite of passage’, the initiate emerges empowered and exalted – ready to assume their new responsibilities and new privileges within the community. Collectively, this exaltation is NOT what is being experienced nor witnessed during the postpartum period.
We are going through the immense passage of birth- but our ‘rites of passage’ into Motherhood are incomplete. Complete ‘rites of passages’ are essential not only for the health of the individual (in this case Mothers), but also for the health of communities.
Accommodations/travel cost not included in price. HOWEVER, we have space to host those who want to camp on our land as do our neighbors for a small fee. We also have neighbors who are also willing to host women in rooms in their homes for small fees as well, and there are many local, affordable Airbnbs.
Here is our general schedule for INNATE’s Retreat – August 9th through 12th! Schedule subject to change because of the unpredictability of the weather in Northern New Mexico. We will be following the Sun!
