These intensives have two formats: one for five participants which are three and a half days: one for seven participants which are four and a half days or five days (ending earlier on the 5th day….same amount of total time. Participants are all types of professionals, students and adults interested in their own healing.
Myrna creates safety and a nurturing “womb surround” to do deep regressive work through establishing interactive, empathetic and contact principles for the participants so they can actively support each other throughout the workshop. Each participant has an approximately 1.5 to 2 .5 hour session facilitated by Myrna to explore her/his own physical and emotional patterns from prenatal, birth or early origin. Each session is followed by a sharing of group members, integration and discussion. Participants heal and repattern early trauma and then bring this healing to their current primary relationships and life. Not all sessions involve prenatal/birth/attachment themes. All sessions are unique and participants also do important work from other periods of their life. Their intention for the workshop is the guiding theme for their session.
This workshop is helpful for professionals who wish to experience the profound changes possible with healing of prenatal, birth and attachment issues. This is directly applicable to most professional practices involving the healing arts.
This format was created because the most powerful transformations often happen in a small group setting. The time allows space for integration of material from the sessions, and each person will receive a debriefing time, usually the day after their session, which further supports integration of the session. Participants need to arrange to attend the entire workshop as this is important for the creation of safety and security in the group.
The goal of a Birthing Your Self Process Workshop is to support participants to heal and repattern prenatal, birth and attachment imprinting within a safe container. Connections are made with current themes and behaviors in the participant’s life.
The small group model integrates processes from energetic body work, biodynamic craniosacral, psychotherapeutic approaches like IBP (Integrative Body Psychotherapy), trauma resolution work and birth simulation. Each participant will have an opportunity to explore their unique intention for the connections to physical and emotional patterns of early origin.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is open to professionals and non-professionals who want to explore this area for personal growth. Professionals will benefit also by experiencing the pro found changes possible with this approach, and will find themselves integrating aspects of the work into their usual practice. Those who come with particular skills will be encouraged to use them in this group setting. Participants will leave with deeper levels of awareness, directly related to prenatal, birth and attachment processes. But most important is that participants often report that the biggest impact is more loving bonding within their primary relationships.
This small group is important for creating the safety and attention to everyone’s needs. This is vital in doing personal prenatal, birth and early work. Participants are asked to leave the evenings free as we do not set a definite ending time. This is extremely important as the sessions can be variable in time, and we want the space to be with what wants to happen. This allows us to flow with what time frame is needed and most appropriate in the individual sessions. The evenings are also valuable integration times.
The group provides support to each participant to sustain the changes in an ongoing manner after the workshop is over. The time in the workshop and the follow up helps to integrate the material from your work and others’ work.
