Dragonfly Medicine Community Circles for

Pregnancy and Beyond

 

A Dragonfly Medicine Community Circle is a space for you to find connection to your pregnancy and postpartum path through your spiritual and emotional work.  We vision this circle to be a grounding force for your growth and expansion. 

 

We are celebrating your wisdom and your ancestral strength. The circle embraces your changes and supports you through them physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We view childbirth as a rhythmic natural cycle sustained by the elements of the natural world; earth, fire, water, and air, and of course your spiritual guides.

 

In the circle we are all equal human beings and the Midwives are present to bring their medicine only as a loving gesture.  They will offer the healing tools they have mastered through years of training their hearts and hands in the healing arts. They will share their wisdom about the plant world and allies for pregnancy,  and postpartum, nutrition, all the practical knowledge for your journey that might relate to your experience, and also bring healing modalities for processing any trauma associated to the way you view childbirth. 

 

In the circle an ALTAR supports our work as we open our hearts to the realm of our lineages and draw strength and support from them.

We will share a meal and botanical medicines to nourish our bodies.  We will learn fun practical herbal medicine for self-care as well as the care of our family.  We will breathe together, meditate, pray, work with sacred fire, sing our hearts songs to strengthen our parent voices in a loving way. 

 

We will FIND OUR COMMUNITY as it is well known that it takes a village to raise a child.

 

Virginia and Stephanie believe in the practice of traditional midwifery. The intension is to embody this ancient practice as their ancestors once did and from their own ancestors lineage practices.

 

We are support shifting the modern paradigm of midwifery in North America  where midwives offer wellness to the entire family as educators, coaches, nutritionists, as well as being spiritual guides in a natural process. In this paradigm a deep connection with plant relatives is embraced as part of the practice of midwifery. In this ancient way, each Midwife brings special healing modalities and spiritual practices that support the work as healers in the community. 

 

Virginia and Stephanie want to enter in sacred partnerships with the people they serve rather than placing themselves in the role of authority.  They center the family unit as the ones having the experience and from that they understand their job is to support the process as it unfolds for each family.
