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

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.

Reflecting on the root cause of many chronic ailments, prolonged Fight or Flight stress response, I realized that just the baseline state of disconnection from the Womb, the source of life, causes us to be in chronic stress response mode as it goes against our intrinsic nature and fundamentally threatens our survival. So returning to Womb Centered Awareness heals this at the root.

We are in the midst of a great awakening about how the domination of the feminine by the masculing is hurting everyone. Those who are clinging to this domination model, who have gained the most power within it are addicted to domination and have lost any sense of inner power. As we heal our wombs and this dynamic within us, we are preparing to hold these deeply wounded domination addicts through their eventual recovery
How we meet the transitions in our lives, from conception to birth to puberty to parenthood to menopause, says a lot about who we can become. Much healing is needex around insufficient rites that don't honor the potency of these passages.
We receive emotional wisdom in our mother's wombs and throught childhood it is transmitted to us through our continued connection to her womb. Many womb ailments and health issues for both men and women result from undeveloped or non-existent emotional wisdom. The medicine for this resides in the womb.
