Become a Doula From Within

Not only will your clients be transformed, but you will also be transformed.

This 6-day training combines the Crossing the Threshold retreat, Heart of Mentoring, AND Doula From Within™ training into one comprehensive course to prepare you to work with expectant families as a birth doula. This course leads to certification as a Birthing From Within Doula.

The setting is divine... Breitenbush Hot Springs is a 1-hour drive outside of Salem, OR, or two hours from Eugene or Portland. The retreat center is up in the mountains, off-grid, and magical. (There is no public transportation to get you there, but we will arrange ride shares with participants as we get closer to the workshop.)

Lodging at Breitenbush is in simple rustic cabins. All cabins are shared with one other person of the same gender from our group (except for the dorm cabin is 4 people in the cabin). Cabins have single or double beds with a fitted bottom sheet. You bring your own bedding, pillow, and towels, or you can rent a set for $18 extra. Cabins are heated and very cozy.

Here are your cabin options:

- Cabin with plumbing (sink, toilet) $742 (Shared with one other person in our group)
- Cabin without plumbing $616 (Shared with one other person in our group)

All meals are included in your lodging costs, and are served in the community dining hall. They are organic and vegetarian. You can request a special diet that excludes gluten, and dairy and eggs if you need vegan options.

Your lodging will be paid separate from your workshop fee. You will pay the workshop fee when you register, and then will receive an email asking you to select your lodging preference and you will be invoiced separately for that. Your lodging must be paid in full two weeks prior to the workshop beginning. There are no payment plan options for lodging as lodging has to be paid in advance to Breitenbush.
