Blessingways

Blessingways are a lovely alternative way to host a baby shower.  This is a way to honor the journey that the woman is taking to become a mother, the strength and courage that she will need for labor.

Mothrising is a complete and inspiring guide to Blessingway celebrations

Babyshowers can tend towards the superficial when what a mom-to-be really needs is the honest confidence and wisdom of her friends.  This book provides an easy template for creating a fun celebratory and empowering blessingway for moms-to-be.

“Blessingway ceremonies create a sacred and safe environment where a mother-to-be can explore the challenges and joys that lie before her as she approaches birthing and mothering. Surrounded by the most important women in her life, she gains a sense of power, confidence, and support that will help her rise to motherhood. Birth is a key life passage for women. But modern culture has become preoccupied with the arrival of the baby-to-be and has lost touch with birth’s profound impact on the expectant mother. While our most common birth preparations focus on getting women physically ready to give birth, the blessingway ceremony helps a woman to prepare mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for the work of birthing, and it opens her to her instinctive abilities, which will guide her as she steps into the role of mother. A blessingway can be held for any woman, whether she is a member of a specific religion, someone who follows her own spiritual path, or someone who claims no faith or spiritual practice at all. It is a ceremony that can be designed to provide a deeply meaningful and transformational experience for a mother-to-be while honoring her personal belief system.”

  1. I love this book! I’m just about done reading it. I think all mama’s deserve some sort of Blessingway, whether you are calling to the four winds or making a bracelt or lighting a candle 😀

  2. I’d like to add my recommendation for this book. I picked it up from the Bundle before hosting a Blessingway for my best friend. The experience was absolutely amazing and could not have gone more perfectly.
