Our earliest experiences shape our beliefs about life. As we come into being, our capacity to love ourselves, others and the world, is either enabled or suppressed. This affects all of our relationships including that with the world around us.
When facing the challenges of climate change and discovering its relationship to birth, can we think in life affirming ways about this critical period of human bonding? Consciously healing the beginnings of life, both as adults and in relation to current birthing practices, reveals priceless gifts for each of us and contributes directly to the sustainability of life on our precious Earth.
Join this unique gathering of leading voices in the field of birth healing taking place at the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland, a world famous centre for the transformation of consciousness in everyday life.
All times BST
3rd September 2016, 20:00 – 22:00 BST Opening Plenary
Welcome: Rosie Faith, Elmer Postle, Graham Meltzer
1) Robbie Davis-Floyd: The Technocratic, Humanistic, and Holistic Paradigms of Birth and Health Care
This presentation describes the three major global paradigms of birth and health care: the technocratic, humanistic, and holistic models of medicine. The profound differences in belief, practice, and worldview among practitioners of each of these three paradigms are explained, so that birth practitioners can understand the power of these paradigms to influence belief and practice and evaluate their own choices in terms of where they wish to stand on this spectrum.
4th September 2016, 09:00 – 10:30 BST
2) Robin Lim: Awakening Birth
Awakening Birth is a commitment to honour, protect and serve, mothers, babies and families, globally. How we welcome the newest citizens of Earth, the newborn babies, defines us as humans. Are we kind? Are we gentle? Do the mothers and babies receive respectful care, regardless of their worldly ‘worth’? Wisdom in birth means we have the courage to ask these questions.
4th September 2016, 11:00 – 12:30 BST
3) Binnie Dansby: Birth Ecology is Earth Ecology
Our ideas of relationship come from the original intimacy in the womb and how that first relationship completed or didn’t. This impacts us as we move forward into relationship with our surroundings and other people, the environment. Relationship Is.
5th September 2016, 09:00 – 10:30 BST
4) Michel Odent: From the Neolithic Revolution to the Symbiotic Revolution
Life did not come to dominate the globe through conflict, but rather, by networking. This is the basis of the necessary paradigm shift we are expecting thousands of years after the Neolithic revolution. A new key concept is needed, one that’s perceived as the antithesis of the ‘domination of nature.’
5th September 2016, 11:00 – 12:30 BST
5) Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova: Correlation between birth complications and traumatic experiences within family lineage
The impact that family history and woman’s own experiences prior to the due date have on her delivery. What can be done before birth, and, in the best case scenario, even before conceiving to neutralise negative imprinting and assure a deeply satisfying outcome.
6th September 2016, 09:00 – 10:30 BST
6) Angelina Martinez Miranda: Traditional Midwifery Through the Generations
Traditions have a crucial role in indigenous cultures. In this talk Angelina will discuss how the traditional midwife plays an important role in the preservation of these traditions and will discuss the actions that traditional midwives have taken in our efforts against child birth becoming institutionalised. Traditional midwifery in Mexico is concerned with the alignment of body, mind and spirit for the benefit of the mother-to be, her family and her community through the use of simple, non-invasive practices such as the use of the rebozo and various ceremonies to honour the woman during pregnancy, birth and post-partum.
6th September 2016, 11:00 – 12:30 BST
7) Mary Jackson and Ray Castellino: Preparing Families for Birth and Supporting Birth Resolution
Jackson and Castellino work with families to prepare for birth as well as to heal trauma and resolve traumatic birth experiences. In this profound and unique work, children and babies resolve their birth stories through gesture and movement, allowing the family to deepen their connections in a new configuration. Ray and Mary will show video recordings including work with babies born by caesarean as well as breech. They will share foundational therapeutic principles that create conditions which allow healing to take place.
7th September 2016, 09:00 – 10:30 BST
8) Robin Grille: Neuro-social Evolution: How connectedness was lost and how to reclaim it for humanity’s future
The presentation will draw on neuropsychology, epigenetics, psycho-history and anthropology to illustrate how and why many of the world’s cultures lost, over centuries, the capacity for healthy connectedness in early life. Now that so much is known about the centrality of connected relationship for healthy human function, there is a social and global imperative to ease back towards a society of healthy connectedness. The implications are bigger than you think. And your job is more important than you realised.
