Birthing From Within introductory retreat


Step into a new and inspiring approach to modern birth.

Birthing From Within recognizes that birth work is challenging, draining, and sometimes even frustrating. There can be a gap between why you chose this field, your passion for birth, and the tools you need to navigate its realities. Birthing From Within believes that the missing link is the ancient maps of inner knowing and human truths about birth, and we want to bring these maps into your awareness.

Crossing the Threshold is an embodied workshop that challenges you to dig deep and explore where you came from, where you are now, and where you are going in relation to birth in our culture. You'll be guided in art, mindfulness, and ritual; hear a Great Story; and emerge with new inspiration and perspectives.

Following the two-and-a-half day retreat, you will be enrolled in a four-module online course, Heart of Mentoring, where you will integrate what you experienced during the retreat, while learning several of Birthing From Within’s most prized mentoring skills so that you can begin bringing the Ancient Maps to your Modern Birth clients.
