A MOTHER'S BLESSING
Satori is pleased to offer this service along with your doula package. However, if you are interested in the Mother's Blessing alone, I am happy to offer it on it's own.
"BLESSING WAY" (A MOTHER'S BLESSING)
Choosing to have a "Blessing Way" is a beautiful way to honor this significant time in your life. Traditionally, a "Blessing Way" was a ceremony by the Navajo people, whereby they celebrated through ceremony an important event in a woman's life; in this case, a woman's transition to motherhood. To respect the Navajo people and their tradition, Satori will name this Blessing Way: A Mother's Blessing.
In modern times, a Mother's Blessing can be desired in place of a baby shower, but can also be in addition to or combined with a baby shower. It celebrates your re-birth as a woman, a blossoming in spirit, and a right of passage into motherhood.
A Mother's Blessing can look differently from one expecting mother to another - each one tailored to the indvidual. Traditionally, the gathering is of significant women in your life (ie. mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, friends, etc) who gather to offer their support to you. Imagine feeling the support of those whom you love and respect - what a meaningful way to embark upon this new journey!
One example of an activity we could plan for your Mother's Blessing is to have a bead presentation/ceremony. Each guest brings a bead that would be presented to the you in a circle gathering. You will string each of these beads to create a necklace, bracelet or chain that you can carry with you at the time of your labour - a physical symbol and reminder of your circle of support. With each unique bead comes.. A Mother's Blessing.
It is a wonderful time to celebrate YOU, to feel the presence of your community, and to acknowledge your beautiful little baby that is soon to come. This Mother's Blessing is for you, so let's sit down and talk about how we can make it special.
