Events Calendar

Whether you're looking for a professional workshop or a family friendly event, we hope to see you soon!

Sunday, August 4

7:00p - 9:00p

 

Abortion Story Portals are facilitated by Christine Anderson, trained abortion doula and abortion support specialist. This group is a space for people to receive non-judgmental, post-abortion emotional support.

 

Each gathering is a confidential space for speaking openly about abortion experiences, free from shame and stigma. Happiness, sadness, grief, anxiety, empowerment, guilt and relieve are all common feelings after an abortion. We feel it is necessary to hold a judgement free space outside of political and religious debate where honest stories may be shared. Each group begins with an introduction to the circle, followed by story share and a guided meditation. All who experienced an abortion are invited to this group. You are not alone.

Gatherings held at Woven Postpartum; we ask no babes or children, please.

Friday, August 16

7:00p - 9:00p

 

Birth Story Portals are an invitation to draw up and connect to the power of support, transformation and inner wisdom through shared stories. These story circles can be healing and validating, tender and nurturing, enlightening and inspiring. However you have been called to this portal, we are so glad you are here.

The story circle will begin with breathwork, then move to opportunities to share or listen, followed by meditation and reflection on the evening and the raw realities of birth.

Hosted by Christine Anderson at Woven Postpartum. All birthing folks are welcome, and we ask for this portal to be adults only; no babes or children, please.

9:00a - 1:00p

 

Bengkung Belly Binding is a Malaysian postpartum method of wrapping the abdomen in a long narrow piece of muslin or light weight cloth. Wrapping the belly can be a supportive daily ritual during the postpartum window. This technique aids the body to heal and recover often in a shorter time period. 

Join holistic postpartum care specialist, Christine Anderson, for a hands on experience into the art of belly binding for postpartum care. 

 

This workshop covers:
- anatomy and transitions of the body through pregnancy into postpartum
- the history of the belly binding tradition globally
- foundations of Ayurveda
- the Sacred Window
- hands on practice of Bengkung belly binding
- contraindications for belly binding
- instructions to make your own wrap

This workshop is appropriate for those who are looking to learn self-binding techniques, as well as birth and postpartum support professionals looking to expand their offerings for clients. 

Each participant receives one Bengkung wrap of choice, and detaile handouts.
