I have been having second thoughts about my trip to the Northwest, to train in pre- and perinatal psychology and birth process work. It is going to be expensive (for me) as I fly to Spokane Washington, and then drive to Nelson Canada. I will have to pay a dog-sitter, parking at the airport, tuition, food, etc. It will be tough to leave our dog – Emma – who I have been enjoying spending time with (she keeps me in good shape by taking me for walks every day).
But I am resolved to go through with it, no matter how many tiny obstacles keep cropping up. I am hoping to learn about my own personal birth process as this workshop will focus on conception, time in utero and the actual birth. That is where it stops however – the developmental psychology pieces from birth onward are covered in the next workshop level! But that is enough. What little misunderstandings about my conception, about my parents, about my birth are holding me back? What unconscious obstacles are preventing me from expressing the fullness of my loving heart? These are questions I am hoping to uncover as I delve deeper into my psyche during this workshop. Plus it will be spent with exceptionally good company.
I have done a previous Birth Process Workshop with the main teacher, Myrna Martin. She is very knowledgable and skillful and compassionate and she is known as one of a half dozen highly trained experts in this field in North America. You can visit her site below.
Wish me luck on my journey! And I wish that all sentient beings take a little provocative risk toward opening their hearts and leaving their comfort zones to learn and grow!
