The Fall of Man? I Think Not.

There is something that deeply troubles me about our legacy….

That moment when a baby is born and a mother emerges is magical, sacred.. POWERFUL.. The highest of highs. Right?

On a personal level, for both parents, it is one of the major milestones of life. For the baby, it is literally LIFE itself.

On a global level, this moment ushers in the next generation of humanity.

It is DIVINE- the moment creation is actualized.

The FUTURE is literally being BORN.

A pivotal EXTRAordinary moment on the planet…

and yet our legacy declares that THIS is the moment that we will PUNISH WOMEN FOR THEIR SINS AGAINST MAN.

WHAAAAAaaaaaaaaat?

The Art of FEELING

What if there was a way to release all your doubts, know you are on the right path, and enjoy yourself along the way?

There is!!.. and it isn’t a magic pill, or a rabbit hole into an alternate universe.

This holy grail exists in the place you are least likely to look…

In the SENSATIONS of your BODY!!

The dominant conversation in birth is about bypassing sensation.. numbing.. avoiding our feeling space at all costs.

Ecstatic Birth is literally turning that upside down because the places that we are taught to avoid are precisely where our power lies.

Today I’m excited to share a guest blog post by Samara Concepcion, a woman who has been devoted to this somatic exploration.

Samara is a birth doula in the UK, a dancer, and an ECSTATIC BIRTH PRACTITIONER!

Savor and delight in every drop that is available to you here in this powerful blog! Samara is an inspiration!

“P” is for Pleasure and Power and P**?

This guest blog post is by Jenny Braxton, Mama, birth visionary, educator & community leader and ECSTATIC BIRTH PRACTITIONER!

I entered my feminine form through the pelvic bowl of my mother, journeying from her womb out into the world on the day I was born. It was a long and arduous journey, devoid of pleasure.

{Until she held me in her arms, of course. Then let’s hope there was bliss.}

We all start life in a pelvic bowl, in the wombs of our mothers. From there, we are born into the world.

My entrance into the world was imprinted onto my being at a deep level, in what’s known as the limbic brain, that ancient, reptilian part of myself. My imprint was that becoming a mother is difficult and full of pain.

How to Call in Ecstasy

How often do you experience ecstasy?
Is it enough for you?
Or do you want MORE?
(Most of us want MORE..  special invitation below if that is you!)

The experience of true ecstasy is deeply nourishing but it is also quite elusive.

The truth is it isn’t that hard to locate ecstasy. We have just been looking in all the wrong places.

The place where ecstasy lives is the place that you have been conditioned to ignore.

Your BODY.

(Ever ignored your need to pee because you were “busy?”… Yup, me too)

We have been trained to live in our heads while ecstasy lives in our BODIES.

The Feminine Cycle of Creation

In Ecstatic Birthing for Goddesses, we take the feminine cycle of creation, the journey of conception through pregnancy, labor and delivery as it relates to our METAPHORICAL babies.

Collectively we will focus on one stage each month during our live calls, learning how to identify and diffuse common obstacles and practicing tools of pleasure to support your flow through moments of intensity unique to that stage.

During the private sessions, the focus is wholly on what YOU are creating, identifying your unique spot in the feminine cycle and exploring practices to infuse your journey with pleasure while supporting your process.

Our exploration will always bring us back to the body and how to locate and expand the flow of ecstasy within!
