Description

What is the Embodied Pregnancy Circle?

This winter join us at Shine Collective in Nevada City, California for a three month Embodied Pregnancy Circle that will provide a sacred and safe container of support through the transformative journey of pregnancy & power-filled transition from Maiden to Mother.

Our Circle will gather bi-monthly, with the phases of the new & full moon to align ourselves with the cycles of nature within & around us. These moon circles will guide us through a collection of healing practices: meditation, breath, gentle restorative yoga, sacred sensual movement, soundhealing, ritual, exploration & reflection designed to embrace, nurture & embody the authentic spiritual growth needed to step into conscious Motherhood.

"The wisdom of the moon teaches us that the fullness and beauty of life naturally and instinctively births itself forward into a new expression. The full moon is not the end of a linear path; it is one expression of a sacred ongoing cycle of creativity, a growth-filled exploration of light and dark, known and unknown. In the sky, soft darkness enters the full belly of the moon from the right side as it begins to wane. The moon rebirths itself into a new expression, the waning gibbous moon, carrying with it the wisdom of the journey. The strength of lived experience becomes the foundation for the next phases of life. We have brought unknown parts of ourselves into the light to be healed and transformed, to grow into our gifts, which we share in loving devotion. The moon has everything it needs within to journey through rebirth of the self, soul & body - and so do you. You carry the innate wisdom within, and you have awakened it through your commitment to this pregnancy journey."

-Shamanic Wisdom for Pregnancy & Parenthood by Anna Cariad-Barrett

Monthly Schedule & Intentions

we will gather on the Sunday nearest to the new & full moons

at Shine Collective, 578 Searls Ave, Nevada City, CA (formerly Core Movement Center, next to Wild Mountain Yogal)

from 5:00-7:00pm


JANUARY we will begin in our root chakra, grounding into a foundation of stability & trust as we connect with the element of earth & cultivate the truth of abundance, safety & embodiment. It is here that we begin to explore our acceptance of change, our capacity to surrender to the unknown, and shift the focus & priorities inward to listen to our inner voice & the voice of our child. This is a time of receiving - a time of stillness & silence - a time to invest in a foundation of balanced well-being through self love, self care & positive affirmation.
  • January 14 in honor of the new moon
  • January 28 in honor of the full moon

FEBRUARY we will continue our journey into our sacral & solar energies centers, flowing into a balance of fluidity & strength as we awaken the elements of water & fire. Exploring sensuality through movement & intimacy as we engage with the world & build our systems of support for pregnancy, birth and parenting. Illuminating transformation & expansion with a renewed source of life force & empowerment. Connecting with our inner Mother & Father as a center of fierce compassion & protection.
  • February 11 in honor of the new moon
  • February 25 in honor of the full moon

MARCH we will complete our journey by connecting our heart, throat, 3rd eye & crown energy centers. Tapping into our deep well of love, forgiveness, intuition & expression - as we feel the elements of air & spirit within & around us. This is a time of mindfulness & presence - a time of attunement, peace & communication as we emotionally prepare for the arrival of our baby. A time to transform old fears & beliefs about birth and create our own sacred birth vision. Igniting our highest love, wisdom & clarity as we empower ourselves for the experience of birth - opening to the journey, releasing the outcome & control and guided by our divine feminine truth & the sweetness of surrender. We will close our sacred container with a Blessing Way Ceremony/Ritual.
  • March 18 in honor of the new moon
  • April 1 in honor of the full moon - Blessing Way Ceremony/Ritual

__________________________________________________


"Nothing could have prepared your heart to open like this. From behind the skies and the stars, this echo arrives inside you and starts to pulse with life, each beat a tiny act of growth, traversing all our anceient shapes, on its way home to itself.

Once it began, you were no longer your own. A new, more courageous you, offering itself, in a new way to a presence you can sense, but you have not seen or known.

It made you feel alone, in a way you never knew before; everyone else sees only from the outside, what you feel & feed, with every fiber of your being.

Never have you traveled farther inward, where words and thoughts become half-light, unable to reach the fund of brightness, strengthening inside the night of your womb.

Like some primal moon, your soul brightens, the tides of essence that flow to your child.

You know your life has changed forever, for in all the days and years to come, distance will never be able to cut you off from the one you now carry for nine months under your heart.

May you be blessed with quiet confidence that destiny will guide you and mind you.

May the emerging Spirit of your child imbibe encouragement and joy from the continuous music of your heart, so that it can grow with ease, expectant of wonder and welcome when its form is fully filled and it makes its journey out to see you and settle at last - relieved & happy in your arms."
