    Garden of Eden Retreat Center in Woltersdorf, Germany

    Birth into Being 6 Day Immersive Retreat with Willow Proctor and Jessica Blean

    Have you ever considered the possibility that your capacity for love, intimacy and connection were intrinsically related with the circumstances of your birth?

     

    Birth Into Being 6 Day Immersive Retreat 

    September 26-October 1st, 2017

    Woltersdorf, Germany

    Facilitated by Jessica Blean and Willow Proctor, both first generation facilitators of this work

     

    Recoding Our Biology of Connection and Roots of Love

     

    Birth Into Being is a multi-sensory approach that engages both rational and non-rational parts of us through body-centered explorations, breath work, movement, facilitated meditations and experiential processes which harness the loving and focused energy of the group field, propelling us forward into new territory in our lives. 

    Inpiduals are encouraged to have the felt experience of being conceived, gestated, and born in love and natural ecstasy. We influence the origins of our emotional patterns by creating new, positive, reference points in our nervous system. We can experience a greater variety of positive experiences in our lives by freeing ourselves from the unconscious imprints that drive our behavior. We also practice activating the power of our own innate source of wisdom as our primary compass for guidance in our daily lives, which is so vastly needed in these times of transition.  

    Some of the people who benefit the most from doing this work are:

    • Expectant parents, especially mothers and fathers who want to give their babies a head start in life by not passing on their own issues and traumas to their children.

    • Artists and other change makers who are looking to access and unleash even more of their creative power in the world.

    • People in the helping professions such as therapists, counsellors, bodyworkers, coaches, community builders, etc, who want more insight into themselves and their clients and who want to learn new tools to support them more effectively.

    • Parents of children who may have had difficult or traumatic births. By clearing their own experiences of their births and their children's births, parents are able to support their children in their healing journey by providing a more neutral and supportive nervous system for their children to access.

    • Anyone who desires more love, connection, and purpose in life and who feels that there is something holding them back.

     

    Event Location

    This event will be held in the beautiful little Garden of Eden paradise, the piece of Earth cared for by Willow, her 2 daughters Gaia and Shanti, and the boys (2 male cats,) located in Woltersdorf just 45 minutes outside Berlin, Germany. The property is directly on the edge of the forest and 5 minutes walk to the Flakensee lake. Historically, this area was a known for it’s “air spas,” a place people rejuvenated themselves with clean air, waters and nature. We set our intentions for this event to be an intense set of core touching experiences as well as the space for deeply relaxing into your quiet center. Included in the plans for the week is a sweat lodge ceremony on the land, a healing journey back to the earth womb to our connection with the Elements and Spirit. Please begin to open yourself for new experiences, inspirations and pathways. 

    The workshop will be primarily in English as well as language support in German and French.

    Birth into Being Level 1 & 2 - with Kiria Vandekamp

    Birth into Being

    ist eine kraftvolle, körperorientierte Methode um Blockaden aufzulösen, die uns daran hindern wirklich ganz im Leben anzukommen und unser Potenzial zu leben. Es geht dabei nicht um einen weiteren "Selbstoptimierungswahn", sondern um ein tiefes Loslassen ins Sein, aus dem sich unser Handeln ganz natürlich und unangestrengt entfalten kann.

    Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova begann diese Methode zu entwickeln, als sie in den 80er Jahren Geburten in Camps am Schwarzen Meer begleitete. Was hält Dich zurück? ist eine Frage, deren Antwort sich während einer Geburt sehr deutlich als Hindernis manifestiert. Sie merkte bald, dass dies jedoch für all unsere Lebensbereiche und für Frauen und Männer gleichermaßen zutrifft. Daraus entstand die heutige "Birth into Being"-Arbeit, die sie überall auf der Welt angewandt und gelehrt hat. Sie lebt mittlerweile in Kalifornien. Infos über sie und ihre Arbeit gibt es aufwww.birthintobeing.com.

     

    Methodik

    Mit Worten zu beschreiben, was in den Prozessen der "Birth into Being"- Arbeit geschieht ist ein Ding der Unmöglichkeit. Nimmt man daran teil, ist erstaunlich schnell klar, um was es geht.

    Wenn man jemandem erklärt, wie etwas schmeckt, wird derjenige danach immer noch nicht wissen, wie es wirklich schmeckt. Ein Bissen sagt da mehr als tausend Worte.

    Trotzdem ein paar Worte für den Verstand:

    Die Grundlage der BIB-Arbeit ist unsere neurologische Struktur. Die tieferen Schichten unseres Gehirns können eine Erinnerung nicht von einer Erfahrung und nicht von einer Vorstellung unterscheiden. So können wir also auch im Rahmen eines Workshops neue Erfahrungen machen, die unsere Prägungen relativieren und nachhaltig neue Wege eröffnen, unser Leben zu erfahren. Die BIB-Arbeit kann man in drei Bereiche unterteilen:

    1. "3er-Prozesse", das sind sehr fokussierte "Mini-Aufstellungen", bei denen ein/e Teilnehmer/in arbeitet und zwei andere sie dabei unterstützen. Mit dieser Art Rollenspiel fängt man einerseits bestehende Dynamiken ein (Blockaden, Polaritäten und Dilemmas, etc.), um sie dann sehr schnell so zu verändern, dass sie für die jetzige Lebenssituation Sinn machen. Es geht darum, sich zu trauen, das zu erfahren, was Du jetzt wirklich willst, statt die alten Dramen zu repetieren.

    2. Geführte Meditationen, vor allem das sogenannte "Limbic Imprint Recoding (LIR)", bei dem es darum geht, Deine eigene Geburt als die wunderbare Erfahrung zu erleben, die Du Dir wünschst - ganz egal, was Du wirklich erlebt hast. Dass das funktioniert, liegt wie oben erwähnt an der Struktur unseres Nervensystems - und es ist tatsächlich einfach eine Entscheidung, die in der Regel sehr leicht fällt.

    3."Core Crys", eine körperorientierte Prozessarbeit, bei der über gezielte Fragen direkt angesprochen wird, was Dich im Leben zurückhält. Die "Blockade" darf sich einerseits konstellieren und kann im Hier und Jetzt der direkten Begegnung aufgelöst werden

    Der Atem und die Bewegung aktivieren in allen Prozessen unsere tieferen Ressourcen, von denen unser mit dem Denken identifiziertes Alltagsbewusstsein keine Ahnung hat.

    Vielleicht weißt Du jetzt auch nicht wirklich viel mehr, oder? Es gibt die Stimmen der Teilnehmer unserer Kurse und wer will kann auf YouTube "Testimonials" über die BIB-Arbeit ansehen. Die beste Möglichkeit, zu Erfahren, um was es geht und dass es geht ist jedoch, es selbst zu erleben :

    Birth Into Being Workshops in Lörrach

    Was würdest du tun, wenn nichts dich zurückhielte? Lass deine alte Geschichte los und gebäre dich selbst neu ins Sein. Stell dir vor du würdest dich selbst beschenken mit der inneren Prägung einer ekstatischen Empfängnis, einer zutiefst beglückenden Geburt und dem Gefühl wirklich und wahrhaftig willkommen zu sein.

    Birth Into Being beschäftigt sich im ersten Level mit deinem eigenen Eintritt ins Leben und hilft dir, Muster und Strukturen zu lösen, die dich daran hindern selbstbestimmt zu leben. In einem sicheren und geschützten Rahmen schreiben wir zusammen die Geschichte unseres Lebensanfangs neu, erobern unser angeborenes Glückspotential zurück und erschaffen Verbundenheit, Erinnerung, Absicht und Heilung unserer Emotionen. In diesem Workshop geht um das Neuprogrammieren deiner limbischen Prägungen, um das Lösen von Blockaden, die mit deiner eigenen frühen Prägungsphase zu tun haben, also deiner Zeugung, Zeit im Mutterleib, Geburt und frühen Kindheit. Die Blockaden unserer Lebensenergie, die wir hier erfahren haben, kreieren wir uns im späteren Leben unbewusst immer wieder. Sie zu verändern oder zu lösen kann dir helfen in deiner vollen Kraft zu Leben, zu Gebären, zu Arbeiten und deine Schönheit & Bestimmung in die Welt zu bringen.

    Dieser Workshop ist für alle Menschen geeignet, die an sich selbst arbeiten wollen, besonders auch zur Geburtsvorbereitung für werdende Mütter und Väter - aber auch für alle anderen, für die es nicht darum geht physische Kinder auf die Welt zu bringen, sondern eher sich selbst :-).

    Our world needs Birthworkers who are

    - fully embodied themselves, so they can model that for their Mama's, as well as be grounded and enjoy it themselves.  Embodiment brings trust, connection and celebration of the body with it.

    - clear of their own birth trauma, so that isn't present with the women they work with.

    - strong and able to ride big waves of feelings.  As individuals and space holders.

    - able and willing to speak up.

    - ready to hold space for grace in birth.

     shell_bathtub_easeandgrace_2.jpg

    This work is a gift of grace for conscious conception & birth, and those working in wholistic pregnancy related fields.

    The Birth Into Being Method, is beautifully tailored to those who work With Woman in this online course.  Whilst the nature of the inner work is exploratory of your own imprints of birth, you will gain perspectives that will also inform the way you hold space for the women you serve in birth or pre and post natal care.

     

    Address any unhealed wounds that may be impacting your relationship to birth.

    Or the person you want to be in relationship to birth.

    Grow your changemaking ovaries.

    Deepen your committment to conscious evolution.

    Give to the Birth Passionista within!

     

    You will be in wonderful company amongst Birthworkers, Birthkeepers, Midwives, Doulas, Counscellors, Educators, Advocates, Therapists, Enthusiasts, Nerds, Passionista's, Mama's, and the like. 

    I'll be there too.  Hi! I'm Nicole. 

    I'm a Certified Advanced Facilitator at Birth Into Being. I live off the grid, in the forest, by the ocean in a mudbrick home built with love on the East Coast of Australia. Homebirthing my babies in a tipi, their first foods were from the garden...Unfortunately like most everyone, my life has sped up since those times, but I am still living close to the earth, and beach, and in a strong community of birth-y types.

    Nicole_June17_thinkific_circle.png

    My life is enmeshed with many others, in community. A seeker from the beginning, I am deeply passionate about conscious evolution, our future as a species, and good living as a spiritual path. In my life and work, I am aligned with the truth that the way we are born, and experience life in the formative period of life, creates imprints and impacts the way we live.
    In workshops, private sessions and online, I explore these imprints and create new ones with people wanting to either develop relationship with, prepare for, or heal from birth.
    I am currently conspiring with the universe to create this and other online courses in this wonderful healing modality. I'm hoping to satisfy the requests from all those people who want to do this work from the comfort of their own home, who are not able to make it to a workshop somewhere.  I like the idea of reaching more people than I can with in person workshops, and being a bit more sustainable in the way I'm interacting with the world and sharing my gifts.
    ( Less travel! More time for kids stuff on weekends! )
    Please! Reach out with any queries or questions. Don't be shy, ok?

    The Tri Brain Process

    These day workshops offer an in-depth introduction to and opportunity to deepen into one of the central Birth into Being processes, the Tri Brain.  

    The goal of this process is to experience harmonious co-operation between the rational cortex, the impulsive brain stem and the emotional limbic.   

    In this process, we invoke the inner “Elder” by activating the limbic brain in that capacity, and then relating to the other brain parts from there.  By doing this with others in small groups, and then being lovingly supported to integrate the experience, we have the opportunity to create very real and helpful new reference points in our nervous systems, on which we can draw when we are challenged in our lives.  It can be helpful to do this process more than once, for yourself, and also it is usually insightful and touching to witness and support others in it, so people are encouraged to sign up for either or both days.
    We will (hopefully) be assisted by the lovely Natalie Dorchester, who is an experienced facilitator and group leader, and who also trained with Elena in 2016.

    Birth into Being Level 1 with Nicole Moore

    Join us in the Birth Into Being Method Experience

    Claim your right for greater happiness and find your place of Power, born of Love & Compassion!

    Use the gateway of your own entry to life for deep healing and empowerment for birth.

    We invite you to:

    • Strengthen your sense of belonging and well being

    • Deepen connection with your Higher Self, other people, and the Source of Life

    • Gain new reference points in your nervous system for greater ability of intimacy and

      creativity

    • Fearlessly birth a new project, a new baby and /or a new You!

    We share an understanding that within each cell of our bodies, we carry an imprint from our formative period. If our emotional body was overwhelmed during that period, then a lifetime of ineffective coping strategies and outdated behavioral patterns may occur.

    Birth Into Being Method offers a very effective approach to transforming a less than blissful Limbic Imprint to a highly functional and enjoyable one.

    Our multisensory, multi­generational approach, informed by epigenetics and neuroplasticity, focuses on the formative period from preconception through the early adolescence and is geared towards both men and women. Each workshop is designed to further facilitate alignment with the intelligence of Nature’s creative Power.
