It’s a live, soul-nourishing retreat brought virtually to the safety/convenience of your own home.
Crossing the Threshold is Birthing From Within's signature retreat. It immerses you in some of our juiciest practices, like labyrinth and storytelling, and expands your awareness through personal growth processes. This 5-week series, for aspiring and seasoned birth professionals, will be held virtually from the comfort of your own space, and will shift your thinking, open your heart, and nourish your soul.
This dynamic, embodied retreat will be presented in 3 hour sessions, with substantial breaks offered - you will not be staring at a screen for the entire time! To get the most out of our time together, we encourage participants to fully clear their schedule, prepare their space, and be ready for a deep dive!
Following the 5-week series, 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.
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.
Birthing From Within is pleased to offer payment plans and coupon discounts for many of our courses. Payment plans for this course can be found when you click on the drop-down menu next to the ‘Purchase’ button in the header above. Discounts are accessed by entering a Coupon Code on the Payment Page. Please read below to see how Payment Plans and Coupon Codes work.
How Payment Plans work:
When you choose a Payment Plan, you are choosing the number of months for your plan and the payment amount for each month. You will be asked to enter a credit or debit card number. Your credit or debit card will be charged that amount for the following number of months chosen in your Payment Plan. Payments will be deducted on the same day of the month that you enrolled (though the payment system uses the UTC time zone, which may be up to one day earlier than your time zone, so be aware that payments may be deducted earlier for that reason).
How to use a Coupon Code:
When you click on the ‘Payment’ button, you will be taken to a registration or checkout page (depending on if you have created an account with Birthing From Within before and are logged in to that account). Once you reach the payment page, you will see the total price for your course, and a link that says ‘Have a Coupon?’. Click on that Coupon link BEFORE YOU ENTER YOUR CARD NUMBER to open the field to enter your coupon code. Be sure to enter the coupon code exactly as you see it - do not use uppercase letters. Click on the ‘Apply’ button to calculate the revised price. Then proceed with entering your credit or debit card information to complete your payment and registration.
How do Coupon Codes apply to Payment Plans?
Coupon Codes that apply a percentage discount will take that percentage discount off each monthly payment. Coupon Codes that apply a dollar amount discount will take that entire dollar amount off your first payment only.
