Pregnancy & Infant Loss: Supporting Grieving Parents Through Ritual

THURSDAY OCTOBER 14TH @6:30PM PST WITH MIRIAM TORRES

Pregnancy and Infant Loss with Miriam Torres (1)

Current society has disassociated us from many aspects of the pregnancy journey, one of them being support after a loss. Whether it is what to expect as you personally grieve, or as the person that hears the calling in their heart to offer support, we are not alone. Join in on remembering how we can offer sacred space for parents and families during this sensitive time.

Discussion will be held to understand the physical, emotional, and spiritual change that one might feel during this part of their journey, as well as how we can provide a gentle physical, emotional, and spiritual embrace.
In shifting the paradigm of this sacred time, we help set a foundation to all communities involved in the care and support that is deserved for all.

Inclusive and welcoming to all people.

Vida Muerte Grief Platica (1)

During this platica, we will share how grief manifests and shows up in our mind, body, and spirit after a loved one has died. In addition, we will discuss practical ways of beginning this very difficult conversation with our familias. We will learn ways of coping and where to go for support and provide you with resources to help you navigate this journey.  By Honoring both Life and Death as part of the Cycles of Nature, we remember our sacredness and interconnectedness to all of creation.

RITUAL AND CEREMONY FOR WOMEN

Rites of Passage such as menarche/puberty, marriage, and pregnancy/birth are sacred moments in a women’s life that deserve to be celebrated and honored in a special way. Let me help you bring ritual and ceremony to yours.

I gather the wisdom of my indigenous ancestral knowledge, the teachings of my grandmothers and traditional elders who have passed on these beautiful ceremonies, respectfully with their blessing I share these teachings in a good way.

Let’s create a beautiful rite of passage ritual for you or a loved one. We could work together and co-facilitate or I could plan and facilitate the ritual with your guidance. Contact me to further discuss the details.

Let us help you with...

  • First Moon (girls coming of age)
  • Bridal Blessing (preparation for marriage)
  • Mother Blessing (preparation for motherhood)
  • Moon Pause (preparation for menopause)
