Bespoke Blessings

Mother Blessings & Other Sacred Blessing Events

The entire Ceremony is a template for childbirth. The beginning rituals are like nesting and early labor. The grooming and washing like active labor. The gift giving like giving birth and the closing songs/prayers, delivery of the placenta and postpartum”.- Jeannine Parvati Baker.

 

Inspired by the Navajo Blessingways, women all over the world have felt incredibly drawn to creating a similar ceremony that celebrates the transition from maiden to mother. Our culture has long held a tradition of focusing on the coming of baby, often centering parties around gifts, games and ‘things’.  A Mother Blessing specifically centres around a mother-to-be and all that she may need to assist her into the next phase and coming months and years.

 

This ceremony draws upon the feminine energies around the woman (or pregnant person), providing her with a web of support, and positivity to guide her through labour and beyond. She may want to release fears and worries, or just find connection with the women in her life knowing she is safe to let go and welcome her baby.

 

NOTE: A modern Mother Blessing should not to be confused with a traditional Blessingway which is a traditional ceremony that belongs to Navajo people. We are simply ‘inspired’ by this tradition, and to be respectful of this cultural tradition and their request not to use their sacred term, I choose to use a different name.

 

Other possible occasions for a Bespoke Blessing include:

~Birthdays

~Menarche

~Marriage/Engagement

~Menopause

~Any significant life event or rite of passage

Other Sacred Ceremonies

Other Sacred Ceremonies:

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. – OSHO

BIRTH RECLAIMING

Supporting women to heal after birth.
This ceremony can be very powerful, evoke strong emotions and assist in the healing and/or grieving process.
This ceremony includes birth story telling, herbal bath, a ‘tuck-in’ for mum and baby, and can include belly binding and photography on arrangement.

All ceremonies are tailored to your individual needs.

 

CLOSING THE BONES (also known as womb sealing)

This ceremony is for women who are wanting to either seal or heal their wombs in between babies or after they feel they have finished childbearing.

Bringing a soul into this world requires a lot from a woman, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Closing the bones is a ceremony to assist in her healing and repairing after birth. It is said that the veil between here and the spiritual realms becomes thin for women as they birth their baby. Traditionally it was thought that after being a vessel between two world, this ceremony supported women to come fully back into their own. It helps to fully ‘close’ the mother after having opened in so many ways.

 

Additionally,  it can be a significant time for a woman to feel that the phase of childbearing has ended. This ceremony supports a woman into her next journey.

Womb sealing includes a number of multisensory, nourishing, uplifting, and emotive activities including a specifically created ‘tuck and lie in’, belly binding, meditation, reiki, sound healing, herbal bath, and more.

 

It is specifically tailored to your needs in order to best support this time of complex and often paradoxical emotions such as the swaying from grief after traumatic birthing experiences, or of leaving the stage of motherhood, to joy of bringing back independence and the wise woman. This space allows you the time to reflect, while all of these feelings (both expected and unexpected) will be heard and held.
