Michael and I continued to have the most intense, powerful and truly remarkable week after leaving the workshop! Blessings to you and our deepest thanks for the workshop! It was an answer to my prayers that I have been holding for many years.
I had developed a habit of holding in the back of my head, that just seemed like part of my being, it was so old and so deeply ingrained on every level. Because there was so much emotional distress and holding here, I have struggled with sleep issues and general levels of functioning for the past 10 years.
"Birth As We Know It is a stunning film that pulls you in and mesmerizes you with its beauty. It delicately depicts and sensitively observes one of natures most private and yet miraculous events: the birth of a new human being. Rare and intelligent. Scientifically sound. Highly recommended to all future parents who who want to birth a new generation of loving and caring children. "

"Beautifully crafted and visually stunning, Birth As We Know It not only inspires us to birth consciously; it also gives us the information we need to prepare our minds and bodies for this pivotal event. Birth As We Know It will be invaluable for mothers, fathers, midwives and everyone involved with birth and babies, awakening us all to the central role of birth in life-long health and wellbeing.
It is amazing, one of the most powerful birth films that I have seen. Inspiring, informative, delightful, full of gems and stories to counteract this crazy world we live in...I love your narration, so natural and yet profound, I wanted to write down so much of what you said. I also found it personally profound, your understanding of life, limbic imprinting, your dancing... Simply amazing!"

Wow, it was great! Awesome! I did it!!!
There were 9 women from our group devoted to revitalization of every day life of an average man. It was a profound experience both for me and for them, - they were touched very much by it... Elena, please accept their warmth, greetings and deep gratitude for creating this method and teaching me. They've asked me to tell you that.
It worked! I was greatly surprised by the fact that I had a premonition of what they need right now. Thus I was adapting the workshop according to my present feeling of a situation. I felt being guided by some force.
I've experienced that birthing field was taking care about the process and everybody in it. What a relief :-) Now I feel being in my shoes at last!
Thank you! with so much love,
