A Mother Blessing or Blessingway, is a woman-centered celebration of the journey into motherhood. It is different from a baby shower in that it focuses on the femininity and power that comes through growing a baby and giving birth. The Blessingway is often segmented into several ceremonies that have been adapted from the traditional Navajo’s sacred fertility rites. These ceremonies bring the women in attendance together through sharing blessings for the Mother-to-be.
It’s purpose is to connect the mother to herself and her tribe, so she can really sit in her immediate experience in safety and support, so that, when she is ready, she can let go…symbolic of the way in which we are called to gather and let go, so many times during labour, birth and motherhood.
Having an experienced womens circle leader run your Blessingway creates a seamless experience where the space is held for connection, vulnerability and sets the tone for deep nourishment for all in attendance.
