Your Journey Begins...

Crossing the Threshold is Birthing From Within's signature retreat. It immerses you in some of our juciest practices, like labyrinth and storytelling, and expands your awareness through personal growth processes. This weekend retreat will shift your thinking, open your heart, and nourish your soul for birth work.

Following the two-and-a-half day retreat, you will be enrolled in a four-module online course, Heart of Mentoring, where you will integrate what you experienced during the retreat, while learning several of Birthing From Within’s most prized mentoring skills so that you can begin bringing the Ancient Maps to your Modern Birth clients.

Crossing the Threshold for BIPOC

All Birthing From Within trainings and workshops are designed with the explicit goal of cultivating and protecting diversity, inclusivity, and equity. In addition, the contents of all of our Crossing the Threshold retreats are standardized so that all participants across the country - and around the world - can have a common, shared experience. That said, the Crossing the Threshold for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color offers something special.

Limiting participation in certain trainings to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color allows us to...

Provide a safe space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to focus on inner work and community-building without the potential distractions of white supremacy, white privilege, and/or white fragility.
Center the perspectives and contexts of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color by providing the time and space to consider Birthing From Within practices and approaches specifically in light of their birthing experiences.
Provide facilitators who are themselves Black, Indigenous, or People of Color.

So, while all Crossing the Threshold retreats are appropriate for all aspiring or experienced birth workers of all backgrounds, communities, and identities, we offer these retreats specifically for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color who feel that they could benefit from learning in an environment shaped by the factors above.
