  • What is your refund policy?
    All workshops and trainings require non-refundable deposits to secure your place. If you have paid in full, but need to cancel, a portion of your fee will be retained to cover admin costs. This is an "up to" figure, meaning it may be less than initially withheld, depending upon our costs of transferring funds back to you etc. This "up to" amount will be a different for each workshop, so please carefully read all details of the event you are booking into. All care has been taken to only receive paid bookings when an event is 100% confirmed, and as predictable as it can be in these uncertain times. Prices do not include food and lodging. Please see individual workshop listings for more information.
  • Does the workshop price include lodging and meals?
    No, it is only the cost of the course itself. The food and lodging are separate, and based on local prices.
  • When do we start?
    It's good to arrive the evening before the workshop begins, to settle in. Workshop days begin at either 9 or 10am (each workshop is different) and runs until about 6pm. There will be tea and meal breaks throughout the day as well.
  • How are meals/breaks handled?
    Depending on the event, meals may be catered or participants can go out for meals or bring a bagged meal from home. There are lunch, dinner and tea breaks throughout the day. However, the exact times vary based on where the group is with the material. Typically lunch break is around 1:30 pm and dinner break is around 6 pm.
  • Does the Method focus on reducing traumatic births?
    Reducing traumatic births is one of the many focuses of the Birth Into Being Method. The main focus is healing one's own birth trauma, from the person’s own formative period (conception through early childhood). Some participants are not preparing for birth at all. For example, young unmarried men or older women who are past their childbearing age will come for their own healing of their dynamic with the Birthing Field. As a natural side effect of this work their creative force is no longer obstructed, so it is easy to give birth to whatever they want to give birth to, any creative project, including, potentially, a human baby! While this Method helps pregnant women avoid possible future complications at birth, it is not limited to it.
  • Can I bring my baby to the workshop?
    Sorry, but no. Babies are not allowed in the workshop room. Check with the Facilitator of the event to determine your individual needs. It may be possible to have your baby at the location of the event so long as the baby is not a distraction to you or the other participants. A support person would be required and greatly appreciated. You may also consider arranging sleeping accommodations away from the other participants in respect of their needs. As this is an intense training, everyone will need their rest.
  • Will there be a lot of screaming and crying in this workshop?
    Not necessarily, but possibly. All feelings and parts of you are welcome. The Birth Into Being Method approach does not focus on re-living the pain or trauma, but rather on creation of new "reference points" in the nervous system, and a new alternative memory (non-cognitive). The "cathartic" part only lasts for a few moments, if it arises at all.
  • If I can only attend 1 day and want to receive the Limbic Imprint Re-coding, which day should I attend?
    The actual process of the Limbic Imprint Re-Coding is on the second day of a longer format workshop. Please note that in a short format workshop, it may be on the first day. Participants can come for the first days, but may not join an already started workshop, as we are co creating a field of deep trust and having people come and go doesn't facilitate that. If it's impossible to come for the full workshop, this guided meditation is available as a download here: (scroll to the bottom of the page)
  • How can a person heal from not being breastfed?
    It depends on the age of the person who was not breastfed - For a baby, touch of any kind (including skilled adjustment or massage) is the best medicine! Attention is also important. Other than that, whatever the mother can do to neutralize her own trauma, will immediately show on the baby. There is a reason why there was no breastfeeding. When that reason is addressed appropriately, lots of tension goes away in her and, automatically, in a baby. Absence of breastfeeding is not the cause, it's a consequence of something else, which needs to be looked at. For an adult, the Birth Into Being Method workshops are an effective way to deal with this. The Method is designed to efficiently help people heal the trauma they experienced during their formative period.
  • Will I be able to attend with my toddler?
    Question from participant: I have two and a half year old daughter who still nurses. Is it possible to get a rough idea of the times and breaks of the workshop? Her Dad will be able to look after her for the majority of the day but she will probably need me for at least a little while a few times during the day. I want to determine if I need to wait until she is a bit older to attend a workshop. I want to get the most out of it and not have to miss large segments if she needs me. Thanks so much for any insight you can provide. Elena's answer: You can try to attend, and if it will work out, then you will pay. If it doesn't work out, then you can just pay for the portion you managed to attend. We break for about an hour at 1:30 and we end at 6. Some of the group may still be doing something past 6, but you are free to leave. Also, it is important that you talk to your child and explain that you will have to be gone to 'become a better mommy,' or something like that. They may not understand all the words, but they will definitely get the message and most kids cooperate when they are communicated to properly.
  • Mental Health Guidelines
    If you are in a vulnerable state of mental health, please be realistic about your capacity to be with a group who are working on their inner worlds. It is a powerful field, that can get noisy and stimulating. It is important that all participants are able to be self regulating. If you have recently started or finished taking medications that might impact your mental health, please let us know.
