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?

It’s MAY! I’m HAPPY! Flash SALE!

It’s my favorite month of the year– MAY, my birthday month– time to CELEBRATE!

I’m celebrating the gift of being alive, the JOY of doing work that I LOVE, that elevates our moms and babies– the FUTURE of our planet!!

Each year for me is better than the last because each year I become more MYSELF. 

Working with moms and practitioners in Ecstatic Birth serves an ever deepening connection to my body and my PLEASURE. It elevates my experience of being ALIVE in my BODY.

It opens me to greater amounts of ECSTASY as I birth all my creations.

I want this for YOU!!! 

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.

Why I LOVE the Moon

We are entering the darkest days of the year here in New York.

Dark like the womb
Dark like the depths of the earth

Dark like these very places where seeds get planted and nurtured as they prepare to arrive on this planet.

This darkness is the heart of creation. It is in this darkness that the very seed of desire is sparked.

I love the moon because it shines in this darkness.
I love the sun too– how it wakes me with its beauty and vibrance, but the rhythm of the sun moves too quick for me, each day passing before I know it.

I love the moon because it cycles to the rhythm of my body.
