Beginning Within

Picking up the pieces of your stories...

The Kintsugi Process is for birth-related professionals, those who wish to heal from difficult birth experiences, and those who are interested in self-awareness and personal empowerment. This four-session course cultivates deep listening and compassion when you are exploring the stories that you are telling yourself about birth in our culture; the way you yourself gave birth; and/or births you witnessed that left you feeling unworthy, confused, or in a state of shame or blame. This process begins with birth stories and becomes a pathway to exploring all of your life stories in a more meaningful way.

The Kintsugi Process can be taken as a stand-alone course for personal growth, or as a prerequisite to Birth Story Listening. In order to give this gift to someone else, we must first give it to ourselves. We cannot guide another through a place we have not yet gone; we cannot give to another what we do not embody or have not lived deeply within ourselves. So, for the first four weeks, turn your attention inward and experience healing.
