These words offer up a taste of what I love about this curriculum, "We want to craft sustainable and lasting change... one can enact revolution in the simple feat of slowing down and making a deep commitment to just being oneself--birthing yourself into being. Deep change emerges organically and we want to create as much spaciousness around the process as possible." Birthing Ourselves is a practical guide to change with a gentle approach through the process of pre-conception through postpartum. It is a text by a woman who understands the heart and the nature of women through scholarship as well as through a woman-centered psychotherapy practice.
I have made this text a part of my New Year's ritual. I return to this book and pour through it to find nourishment for my life's work. I use this guide and its discussion questions as writing prompts and even as questions to interject into my own work with women as a Transformational Life Coach.
I can't recommend this book enough for any woman in any walk of life. If you are open to meeting your Higher Self, you have found a text to guide you to her--to you.
