    ReWrite Your Story - Online Course

    Ready to make lasting change in your inner world?


    There are many correlations that show up between birth interventions, early childhood trauma, and the psychology of later life. The field of birth psychology is expanding along with understandings of epigenetics and neuroplasticity.

    Limbic Imprint ReCoding
    breaks the cycle of birth trauma perpetuating
    itself through the generations.

    Explore your life’s beginnings and the limbic imprints created in conception, gestation, birth & early childhood with
    The Birth Into Being Method

    A textured modality that utilises movement, sound, breath, touch and imagination to activate conscious evolution, Birth Into Being unfolds in group workshops, single sessions both in person and on Skype, and now in online groups.

    ReCoding your limbic imprint has a profound impact on one’s engagement with life, and ability to access the states of Being you would like be in. It is spiritual preparation for birth. A path to freedom from the debris of the past.

    Limbic Imprint ReCoding Meditation


    Limbic Imprint re-coding invokes our emotional and physical memory of Bliss, unlocking the mysteries of our behavior and realigning our actions with our emotions and desires. During gestation, birth and early childhood, the limbic system registers all of our sensations and feelings - the way we experience life as adults is greatly determined by our original limbic imprint. Limbic Imprint Recoding Meditation offers a simple and effective approach to reseting our limbic imprint, and allows us to enjoy the delicious, juicy experience of comfortably owning a body, being fully engaged in life, and loving it. Using a combination of intentional movement to music, breath work, guided visualization, and somatic touch Limbic Imprint Recoding Meditation helps to literally rewire our neural pathways and create new reference points for a deep sense of safety, belonging, and vitality. Each one of us deserves the experience of being birthed in Love, and with Limbic Imprint Recoding Meditation it’s never too late to have a happy birth.

    Lvl 1 - Birth Into Being - with Nicole

    Birth Into Being workshops are a co-created birthing field… For birthing ourselves...


    In a safe and supported space, together we rewrite the story of our entry to life - unlock our innate memory of Bliss, traversing neurological & physiological landscapes of memory, connection, intention and emotion.

    We use simple yet profound processes; merging conscious movement, meditation, visualisation, breathwork, touch, and enactment play – reprogramming the limbic imprint of birth and the early years, thus revising the subconscious emotional comfort zone with our current day, conscious intention.

    In a fun and unique way, we easily, gracefully step away from inner landscapes that we don’t enjoy, or feel we have seen enough of…

    This workshop is for anyone seeking deeper understanding of their recurrent patterns, wishing to make a shift and who is ready to clear repetitive, inhibiting or imbalanced beliefs that obscure the truth of who they are.

    For couples approaching conscious conception and birth, this work is a wonderful gift of grace…

    Birth Into Being Levels 1 & 2 with Lily Rothrock in English

    What if nothing held you back?
    We are neither nature nor nurture.
    We're both, and more.
    We are also our own response
    to all significant experiences
    we ever had
    from the very first moment of our existence.
    When we dare to alter
    the effect of the imprints that shaped us,
    everything becomes possible.

    What is Birth Into Being?

    Birth Into Being is a unique self-development method that enables us to undo the unwanted and limiting side-effects of stressful or even traumatic events we‘ve all experienced during the course of our lives. Since these effects have been stored in our nervous system, they affect how we think, feel and act today, in many ways. They also influence our health and how our body responds to our environment, especially under pressure.
    Read more about the method, how it works, and the outcome:


    The workshop will take place at a private home in Sacramento, California.  This will be an intimate workshop experience, in the comfort of a loving home environment.  There is even a pool for dipping!

    Birth into Being Level 1 & 2 - Extended Version (5,5 Days) with Alexandra Lehmann & Ulrike Remlein

    Birth into Being - Geburt in ein neues Lebensgefühl

    Unsere Erfahrungen und Prägungen, die wir während der Empfängnis, in der Schwangerschaft, während der Geburt und den ersten Entwicklungsjahren erfahren haben, beeinflussen unsere Erfahrung der Wirklichkeit zutiefst und formen unser ganzes Leben und Erleben.
    Für viele von uns war es leider keine glückliche Erfahrung. Doch genau diese Erfahrung hat einen großen Einfluss auf unser Leben

    Unglücklicherweise wurde die Mehrheit der Menschen auf unserem Planeten unter Schmerzen und Leid geboren und ist somit limbisch geprägt auf Leiden, Kämpfen-müssen, Nicht-Geliebtsein und Mangel. Diese schmerzhaften Erfahrungen wiederholen wir solange, bis sie in uns Heilung finden.
    Glücklicherweise gibt es einen Weg, all das hinter uns zu lassen, was uns nicht mehr dient und zu erschaffen, was wir uns wünschen und verdienen.

    - Welche unbewussten Muster und Erfahrungen halten dich noch immer zurück?

    - Was lässt dich immer wieder in die alten, gut bekannten, unerwünschten Situationen und Beziehungen hinein rutschen?

    - Was hält dich davon ab, wirklich ins Leben hinein zu springen und deine Visionen zu verwirklichen? 

    Dieser Workshop ist für jeden geeignet, der nicht unter optimalen Umständen geboren wurde. 
    Wir laden dich ein zu diesen 5,5 Tagen, an denen du dein Leben umschreiben kannst.

    Mit einem zusätzlichen Extratag, an dem wir tiefere Integration und extra Birth into Being Material, sowie Hilfe für die optimale Integration des Neuen im Alltag vermitteln.

    Du kannst dein eigenes Geburtstrauma auflösen, indem du körperlich fühlst und erfährst, wie es ist, in Liebe und Ekstase empfangen und geboren zu werden. Du lernst, wie du Herzensentscheidungen treffen kannst und dabei sowohl die Bedürfnisse deines Verstandes, als auch deines Körpers berücksichtigst.
    Es ist einfacher als wir denken, aus unserem wahren Selbst heraus zu leben und uns in unserem ganzen Potenzial zu zeigen!
    Lerne vertrauen, dich verbinden und deine Einzigartigkeit feiern und der Welt zu schenken!
    In Übereinstimmung mit unserem Seelenplan finden wir tiefe Erfüllung und können gleichzeitig eine neue, friedliche Welt erschaffen. Wir laden alle ein, die ihr Geburtsrecht auf ein Leben in Freude, Liebe und Mitgefühl JETZT in Anspruch nehmen möchten! Wir sind frei, die zu sein, die wir sind. Frei, unser Leben aus unserer Vergangenheit und unserer Gegenwart zu erschaffen. 

    Die Zeit ist reif!

    Wir sind die, auf die wir gewartet haben!
    Was wäre wenn nichts mehr dich zurückhält....

    Wir laden dich herzlich ein auf die Reise zu deinem wahren Selbst und wir freuen uns darauf, dich begleiten zu dürfen.

    Radiance Power Yoga in Boulder, CO

    Embodiment Birthshop Level 1


    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.

    * 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!


    “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.”

    “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 

    Individual:  $300/$275 Early Bird Registration through May 15

                 Couple:  $575/$500 Early Bird Registration through May 15

    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, multi-generational 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. The full 16-day program consists of 20 processes and 18 exercises, each designed to further facilitate alignment with the intelligence of Nature’s creative Power.

    Watch the video:

    Course Description:

    The full Birth Into Being Curriculum consists of 20 processes and 19 exercises. During the 8 days (4 Levels) of the therapeutic portion of the course, the participants will have enough time to  experience most of them to address all the main issues in a powerful, transformative way. Yet, within the limited time of 8 days, it is not possible to experience all of them, that's why we offer the additional 8 days, which will include also the training portion. The exact curriculum, order of presentation, and the depth of coverage depends on the group dynamic and the specific facilitator. There is no rigid structure or order of things in this work. Spontaneously responding to the needs of the participants is part of the training and establishes healthy relationships with the Vortex of the Birthing Field.

    Also, interwoven into the tissue of the course are journaling, sharing in a circle, dancing, massage circles, tea breaks, heartfelt connection with other participants, etc.

    Same with the topics covered: in a free flowing, storytelling format, the facilitator has a long list of  important issues to address, depending on the specific needs of the participants.
