Pregnancy Loss Healing Circle
Tuesdays, Sept. 12-Oct. 10, 2017, 7-9 PM
Pregnancy loss is very common:
- Between 10-25% of all pregnancies result in miscarriage
- 1 in 3 people who experience pregnancy will choose an abortion at some point in their lives
Yet we rarely acknowledge the emotional and spiritual impact these events can have. Most of the time, they happen in the early stages of pregnancy, often before a person has let friends, family, or co-workers know they are pregnant. Because miscarriage and abortion are hard to talk about, many people lack the support they need to grieve and seek healing around their loss.
In a safe and supportive circle, we can share our full stories and allow the wide range of emotions that surround pregnancy loss. These might include sadness, guilt, anger, and emptiness. Pregnancy loss is a rite of passage, but unlike birth, it is often not recognized as such. In our circle, we honor the deep meaning of this event.
The group will gather weekly for five weeks in sacred circle to:
- Share and witness our stories
- Plan and participate in ritual together to honor our experiences of loss
Each week’s gathering will be shaped by those called to the circle. It may include visualization, energy work, shamanic journeying, family constellations and creative exercises to help clear and renew the womb space. No prior experience with any of these practices is necessary. We invite you to participate whether your experience of pregnancy loss occurred recently or decades ago.
These gatherings do not take the place of professional counseling. Rather, they can complement it by tapping into the powerful healing that can happen within a sacred circle.
Because we will be focusing on the womb, this circle is open to all people who have been pregnant and have experienced a pregnancy loss.
Space is limited to 8 participants. More information and register at: www.sacredwombservices.com, (206) 407-6577
Cost: $150-195 sliding scale
