(Note this is the same course offered in the AM option for the same dates. Enroll for only one option of your choice.)
DreamBirth® is a tool par excellence to address both the inner fears, worries, beliefs, and ancestral patterns that get in the way of a good pregnancy and birth, as well the external demands of partners, parents, other children, and hospital procedures and attitudes of birthing personnel that can also impede the natural flow of events. Taught by Claudia Raiken, Master Practitioner and Director of DreamBirth®, it is an excellent tool to create the conditions for a positive birth experience.
DreamBirth® Pregnancy and Birth: Course 1, 8 classes
Part 1: About Imagery, and First and Second Trimesters
In the first four classes, you will find out how imagery works, how it is learned, how to respond to the necessity of an image, and the importance of practicing the imagery oneself. DreamBirth imparts gifts for all who use it; the practitioner included.
You will learn exercises to connect with the baby and exercises that create a sense of safety and support as well as exercises for the practitioner . Learn all the exercises you will need for problems and issues that arise during the first and second trimesters : nausea, fatigue, emotional swings and fears , body image and premature contractions. Exercises to prepare for procedures, and most importantly exercises to deal with fears of mothering.
Part 2: Relationships, ancestral issues, stuck patterns
The main focus of the next four classes is dealing with relationships (to partner, mother, one’s other children, friends, work colleagues, doctors or midwives.) As part of that work, learn how to talk ‘through the ethers’. These classes will also deal with ancestral issues, stuck patterns, incorrect thinking and growing up inner child.
You will work with emotions that get in the way; guilt, anger, fear, lack of self-worth, as well as exercises that build optimism and well-being. Learn exercises to deal with previous miscarriages and abortions.
In these eight classes, you will find out how imagery works, how to access our imagery, how to respond to the “necessity of an image” and the importance of practicing imagery oneself. DreamBirth® imparts gifts for all who use it – whether a prospective parent or a practitioner helping parents.
