In today’s world where women struggle to find and create their place in the world, Womb rites play a critical role by creating a circle of sisterhood that is supportive and nurturing. This is especially important as gynaecological issues have increased manifold in recent years, primarily because women tend to store all their grief and pain in their wombs. Through this sacred rite, women are able to restore the sanctity, purity and sacredness of the womb. A womb rite is a shamanic rite that reminds women of their true nature as creators of life. As more and more women heal themselves, the more Mother Earth heals and this, in turn, brings her closer to her balanced state.
Deep listening is miraculous for both listener and speaker. When someone receives us with open-hearted, non-judging, intensely interested listening, our spirits expand.
