This gathering together will be our holy fertile body creative place. Yoga and ritual become sanctuary for women when they open to conception. Jeannine Parvati Baker, beloved Midwife and Priestess of Birth said "...pregnancy is tantra for women. Yoga sexualizes fertility and spiritualizes sex." This blessed evening will be a place of being seen as a sacred vessel of life, love and holiness. Together we will create an altar, learn the elements of ritual and how they pertain to our bodies during pregnancy, and practice meditations to help us expand to become the capacity of the mother. JAI MA ~ VICTORY TO THE DIVINE FEMININE!
