Womb Centered Healing

Alexandra Pope on Reclaiming the Dignity and Power of Menopause

An episode of Womb Centered Healing

By Sama Morningstar
Womb Centered Healing is a growing focus of healing arts practitioners who recognize the foundational importance of the womb. We all started out in our mother's wombs and were deeply influenced by our experiences there. Women and men all hold strong imprints and feelings in the womb space that often require much healing before we can become our full potential. Join me on this podcast as I discuss my own Womb Centered Healing offerings and interview a variety of people exploring this aspect of the healing journey. Photo credit: Nora Gonczi

From Domination to Partnership Episode 2: Vaginal Steaming
In this episode I discuss different models of care we experience with the various health care practitioners we seek information and support from, which ones are based on the domination model of relating to the body and to each other and which ones are nurturing our transition back to the partnership model and how Vaginal Steaming falls into this transition.  I include my reflections on Dr. Aviva Romm's recent podcast episode/blog about Vaginal Steaming that she removed from publication after only a few hours due to the outrage from her community.

Womb Gifting Ecomony: What gives something true value?
In this episode I share more about my experiences of how we tend to value the healing services and trainings we receive.  What gives something its true value?  It has become clear in my 25 years as a massage therapist and my more recent exploration of online courses and services, that the price tag on something does not give it its value.  My need for it and ability to implement and integrate the material into my life are better determinants of the value of something.  And as I discover my own intrinsic creative gifting capacity, what I feel called to give to the world, it seems to increase my sense of self value, the value of what I am giving, my own needs and the importance that my giving is sustainable, that my needs are being met, and that I am inspiring and nurturing your intrinsic gifts to arise from within you to meet our collective needs and my needs in particular if we are to develop a sustainable relationship where I am giving to you through this podcast for example and you are supporting me in some way as well.  Connect with me to further this discussion through my website: www.wombcenteredhealing.com.
