Blessingway Celebration

Celebrate the pregnancy, upcoming birth with your friends.

Treat yourself or your pregnant girlfriend, mother or sister!

Our Western world has lost many of these traditions that were actually there for an importance reason. The woman was celebrated at each passage of his life (puberty, marriage, pregnancy, menopause …), so these passages filled with emotions and questions experienced between women are mostly inexistent. The consciousness of being in a line of women and supported in its own history has also been hidden as a consequence.

The Blessingway is a Navajo tradition to celebrate the expectant mother and the unborn baby. It is a festival organized by women, for women, in the seventh month of pregnancy.

The Navajo have a say: « everything that happens here on Earth must first be dreamed. »

I propose to organize this festival, where different activities can be performed such as:

A “purification”: foot bath of the mother with flowers and plants, with a foot massage.

Each woman invited to this festival brings a pearl, in which she put a wish for the mother, the baby, and the community of women. We assemble and offer these pearls necklace or bracelet to the expected mom. She keeps it until delivery and during the birth; she will be surrounded by all those who wish to help find her strength.

It is a festival where you can sing, dance, meditate, and enjoy delicious food…. a special moment for women!

The Blessingway is organized as such:

  • Consultation with the mother to explain the purpose of the ceremony and understand her needs (half hour). If the organizer wants to keep the event secret, it would be preferable to ensure that this type of ceremony is in harmony with the needs or expectations of the mother. In this case, I provide support to the organizer.
  • Consultation with organizer friend of the mother to explain the course of the ceremony, acquire guest list, place the Blessingway (eg in my office, in nature or in one of the guests), this I would need for the day j. (1/2 hour)
  • D-day: my presence to facilitate the ceremony!

Duration of the ceremony: 2 to 3 hours, ideally between 14h 16h/17h and of course if I go you, the day can then continue without me.

***********************************

Celebration of the first menses

Your daughter reaches the end of puberty. She has just gone through her first menses. This is an important moment in his life that deserves to be celebrated.

Give him a moment between friends to mark this change positively … she will be able to brings life.

It can also benefit from a personal interview with or without you where can be expressed:

Fears, expectations and implications…

Plant the right seed: it is not a curse but a change that will affect the body and cause it to grow. It is also a responsibility.

The organization of the celebration usually takes place in two stages:

  • An interview with the mother you to discuss your impression of the type of preparation and celebration that you want for your daughter
  • A talk with your daughter to know her desires and fulfill its expectations, according to her age and maturity, it can only be a simple afternoon tea  with friends or a small ritual marking the event (poems, songs, games …).

************************************

Circles of Moon

Circles of Moon during the Full Moon

These circles of women are offered to women wishing to open the sacredness of their menstrual cycle, (re) connect with our female cycle, the cycle of the moon, Our « moons » with THE moon.

For those of us link with the phase the moon, the full moon is usually our ovulation. This is a good time to open to the world and our creativity.

Talking, sharing, rituals, readings, singing, making symbolic objects, all in an intimate and sealed with our promise of confidentiality.

This circle is offered every month at every full moon, from 20h to 22h30.

During the New Moon

These circles have a focus on introspection. Indeed, if you are connected with the moon, you will be menstruating and feel more intuitively. This circle will aim to share this internalization.

This circle is offered every month at each New Moon, from 20h to 22h30.

Moon circles will take place in the Red Tent unless otherwise indicated.

*****************************

Red Tents

The « Red Tents » are circles of women taking place in a rather intimate atmosphere.

The Red Tent is a reference to an ancient tradition of women gathering in a place that is dedicated to celebrate the great events of the sexual life of a woman: puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause etc. Found around the world these traditions and celebrations enable transmission between women. The purpose of the Red Tent is to recreate this modern transmission from woman to woman in a place that invites you to share our lives.

Rules for the functioning of a Red Tent:

Confidentiality must be present to allow speaking in a totally secure

The speaking is not mandatory and silence must be respected. Sometimes what a woman needs is to listen and not to be heard.

It is not a forum for discussion and advices are not allowed. In fact, in everyday life, when a woman near us is in distress or offers his problematic, it is impossible not to help her by offering our listening, but also our experience and advice. This may indeed be very useful, but it is not the purpose of a red tent. The Red Tent gives us the opportunity to speak and be listening with respect and total freedom.

Love and light, Marie
