Healing the womb spaceSunday, November 17th, 12pm-2:30pm & Sunday, Dec. 1st, 12pm-2:30pm 2019
Our womb space is an energetic as well as physical centre of our body, containing our pelvic & reproductive organs. It holds imprints of our emotional and relational history- what I affectionately call ‘womb prints’. These imprints can originate from our childhood, past traumas, ancestral trauma, toxic relationships, social oppression and the stress of daily life. Many of us who struggle with a pelvic health issue, or pelvic pain or discomfort often also tend to have energetic imprints blocking the healthy flow of pelvic energy. Having these symptoms can create further emotional anguish or trauma, so a cycle of pain and struggle continues until we initiate ways of gently undoing these patterns.
In this workshop, we will explore ways of gently tuning into our pelvic floor and womb space and using mindful movement and breath to help us heal energy imbalances and facilitate pelvic health. We also explore other self-care rituals such as writing, drawing and sounding, and ways of honoring our womb space energies in connection to the earth, seasonal and lunar cycles.
Participants do not need to have a physical womb nor womb health issue in order to participate, simply an interest and ability to be present for honoring their pelvic health and those around them. Folks who identify as two-spirit, trans, non-binary, queer, are all welcome to participate. Approach is trauma-informed and accessible.
