Quietude of a Womb Surround

Yesterday, we completed a Womb Surround process workshop (PPN work – pre- and perinatal therapy). It was a three-day workshop, with four participants. Each person took a 2 – 3 hour turn over the course of the three days, and we delved deep. I was the assistant to two very proficient facilitators.

It is amazing how a group of strangers who come together with a powerful intention, and under the guidance of skilled facilitators, can go so deep and become so vulnerable with each other so rapidly. It was half men and half women participating (another first for me! Yay more men are stepping forward to do this work!).

As assistant, I was the scribe – taking notes on relevant history and the individual’s intention and then participating in the turn – whatever it might look like. Sometimes I might hold a person’s sacrum (Craniosacral Therapy – tracking the cerebrospinal fluid rhythms), or their head, or feet, or I might be asked to provide containment – putting weight on a person as they feel the inner flutters of life, health, warmth and growth before starting to re-emerge from the “womb” as they do a re-birthing.

Slowing down, getting into baby time – true baby time – everything goes slower – our talking (ideally) slows down, we want to dim the lights, our tone of voice drops a little lower, softer. It is a healing state that few get to experience in the ideal way – without interventions or interruptions to the healthy attachment process to caretakers.

…It is quiet here, inside and out…

…I am marveling at the way the light pours through the trees…

… We are going slow…

…From time to time, the five elements move through the body like waves, ebbing and flowing…

…the sound of the river rapids scamper up the hill and waltz in the cracked window…

…just by holding great spaciousness, the Vagus nerve re-orients, questions old out-dated patterns, begins to believe that new health-enhancing, life-enhancing patterns can be possible…

As we hold these precious little ones and do gradual, lasting healing and repair.

This is what some of the deepest self care looks like! ❤
