BIRTHING BLISS ONE-DAY RETREAT: an embodied journey to deep surrender
with Nisha Gill – birth educator, doula, Tigress Yoga instructor
holistic therapist – bodywork, pregnancy massage, counselling & birth de-briefing, personalised birth hypnosis
Birth is the ultimate act of trust and surrender – to the unknown and to the profound intelligence of our female bodies. Many women today have lifestyles which call on them to reside in their minds at the expense of being in touch with their bodies. Their focus is more often on doing than on just being, leaving them to feel disconnected from their physicality and feminine magic. How then can they relax and open to birth their babies with relative ease, let alone ecstasy?
PLEASE SHARE WITH THE WOMEN YOU LOVE……
This one-day retreat is a lush sanctuary space for you to:
– slow down and connect with what’s really present
for you as you approach your baby’s birth
– learn to deeply trust and surrender to the power and
instinctual knowing of your exquisite womanly body
– experience how your sensuality, sexuality and
primal intelligence are doorways to cultivating bliss
energy and the transcendent states of undisturbed
labour and birth
– explore your dreams, desires and hopes as you
transition to motherhood
– draw on the support of Mother Earth and the women
who have birthed before you
– set your intention for self-nurturing and learning to
receive support as an ongoing priority in the days
– fully immerse in the miracle of bringing new life into
– celebrate your magnificence as woman and mother
The retreat day will include a 90-minute session of PreNatal Tigress Yoga as an invitation to fully inhabit your primal body, empowering information on maximising your potential for the safe, undisturbed birth of your baby, tips for cultivating bliss or orgasmic energy in your body, a 45-minute session of birth hypnosis, and an uplifting birth DVD.
There will also be time to reflect on your vision for the birth of your baby, to articulate your fears and to release these in a beautiful ritual. You can then replace them with positive intentions for the days ahead. Being held unconditionally by a circle of women will have the added benefit of stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system and flow of oxytocin – the very conditions you will want to replicate in labour.
The cost of the retreat includes a healthy lunch, morning and afternoon teas plus a resource pack with birth-related information to help clarify your intentions and boost your confidence.
Pure Destiny essential oils for use in each trimester and labour and copies of the book A Modern Woman’s Guide To Natural Empowering Birth will be available for purchase on the day.
Places at this retreat will be limited to create an intimate and sacred container as you dive into your own depths in the company of like-minded women. It is recommended that you attend this retreat from around week 15 of your pregnancy so that you have time to further reflect and anchor the changes you desire well before the birth of your baby.
The retreat day will most likely leave you feeling deeply nourished, totally blissful and empowered through your journey of pregnancy, birth and beyond.
