    Birth Into Being Workshop July 23

    What if nothing held you back !!

    Did you ever wonder how your birth affects your life ??

    The Conscious Birth Movement began when people began to understand the impact of the very beginning of life on our lifelong patterns. The Birth Into Being Method evolved from an understanding that addressing those issues from the formative period makes a huge difference in the quality of life of clients, as they became more aware, grounded, compassionate, confident and engaged. The techniques offer invaluable experience for future parents and birth attendants as the same techniques can be used as highly effective preventation of birth complications. The Method was birthed by Elena Tonnetti -Vladimirova in the 80s in Russia by the Black Sea, where parents who prepared with the methods went to give birth in the warm waters, far away from medical personnel or facilities. The absence of complications at the birth camps was a high testimony to the efficiency of the preparation program. Now the Method is taught all over the world in most major languages. While being a complete holistic method in its own right, it's complimentary to most other healing modalities, enriching and expediting the possible outcome.

    What is Birth Into Being based on?
    Long-term scientific studies have shown that stressful or traumatic events leave lasting imprints in our nervous system for the rest of our lives. These imprints constantly influence the way we feel, think and act, affecting the quality of our relationships, creativity, vitality, focus and general sense of wellbeing.
    This means that our lenses of perception rarely allow us to see reality as it is but instead our response to life is based on or past experiences. Stressful or traumatic events still have an impact on us even if we have no cognitive memory of them.

    With this introductory afternoon we will explore some of the principles of this method as well as hands on exercises - meditation - dance and Magical theater!

    About the facilitator:

    Constantia Tielbeke has been a Licensed Holistic Bodyworker since 1999 and in 2004 she founded an Aquatic Healing Oasis in Southern California.

    s and found it to be such an incredible, powerful and transformative method that she went on to become a facilitator so she could bring this work to her community.She became a Birth keeper at the Healthy Birth, Healthy Earth conference in Findhorn in 2016 and ever since then she's immersed herself in the Birthing Field .

    Embodiment Birthshop Level 1 Oakland Hills

    IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO HAVE A HAPPY BIRTH

    This two day Level 1 Birthshop is for: 

    • Anyone who wants more love, connection, and purpose in life and who feels that there is something holding them back.
    • Expectant parents, especially Mothers and Fathers who want to give their babies a head start in life by not passing on their own traumas to them.
    • People in the helping professions such as therapists, counselors, doulas, midwives, bodyworkers, coaches, etc. who want to gain insight into themselves and to learn new tools to support their clients 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’s well-being by providing a more neutral and supportive nervous system for their children to access.
     
    BIRTHSHOPS WILL HELP YOU TO:

    * CLEAR traumatic residue of early experiences from our nervous systems.
    * SET A NEW BASELINE of wellness and belonging.
    * GIVE you the important missing experience of being deeply welcomed to your life in safety and love.

    Instead of trying to fix the old “programming” (by re-living the initial shock of being born), it’s most effective to just acquire a whole new vivid, rich, and wonderful birth experience!

    The Birthshop combines powerful somatic visualizations, meditation, somatic re-education, breathing exercises and one-on-one work supported by the group.

    It’s deep, it’s profoundly healing and it’s fun!

    WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING: 

    “This workshop was very profound for me in two different ways: one as a preparation for our baby’s birthand the other as a woman in the world. I experienced the way i would like my baby and all babies to feel when they come to this life. I also discovered a lot a bout my self I had not known. I learned from Matthew as a facilitator but I also learned about him as a real person, as a husband, father and individual being.”
     -Paulina

    “I am 61 year old male with children in their mid 20’s. Attending abirthshop would seem a little late… but I found it to be a very effective and powerful method. Matthew creates a safe place for connecting with my feelings and is a wonderful guide in this process. I would recommend this work to anybody and especially young couples. ” -Rhoads

    “Matthew is an extraordinarily skilled facilitator. He is wise, sensitive to participant’s individual needs, funny, humble, non-judgmental, helpful and a very good listener. On a technical level I was incredibly impressed by the fluid versatility with which he skillfully wove and transitioned between a wide variety of therapeutic modalities. My wife and I felt totally safe and comfortable doing some very vulnerable work with him, and we got more than we expected out of the workshop.” -Scott

    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?

    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.
