CLOSING THE BONES CEREMONY
Postpartum after birth at any gestational age (which includes abortion, miscarriage & stillbirth) requires that we close our physical bodies back up, that we re-define our personal boundaries, and that we reconnect with ourselves as newly born mothers.
This ritual is designed to help return a mother to her centre. It provides a space to simply rest, be and be held, as well as emotions to be honoured, witnessed and released. It provides closure, a space to bring things to a close and move on.
This 3h-ceremony includes:
Closing the Bones ceremony
A supply of medicinal plants for after the ceremony
Birthing and postpartum traditions from around the world are virtually the same, because they are rooted in our physiologic and psychologic NEEDS as postpartum women. These needs are the same - no matter to which lineage we belong to. And the differences of the respective practices, reflect the differences in our land-based environments.
It is done in the location of your choice.
(Please note: if your chosen location is beyond my area of work, please get in touch before booking).

"The ceremony was truly magic and I will always remember it."
"Thank you so much for the beautiful ceremony! I felt so safe with you that I was able to drop into it completely and you guided me so wisely that I just allowed it unfold :) It was so powerful, I felt so light the whole day afterwards and I really feel like something profound shifted since. Also very grateful that you took the photos as a lovely memory of this moment. Very happy to have been guided to you, thank you very much!"
"I felt the most relaxed I had felt in my body in a long time and also felt great release and joy. The rebozo bodywork is so gentle yet so effective in releasing the fascia and relaxing the body and the drumming encouraged me to float above my body as in meditation and have illuminating yet familiar visions."
"The ceremony was set out perfectly with the tea and breathing exercise beforehand to start and the alter we made. The words we choose for the ceremony were so special and chosen with such care. "
