Mysteries of the Placenta
“At the beginning of your world, I was part of you.
Made of the same luminous fabric, flesh of your flesh, of our father and mothers’ being.
As we grew, we were separated but united. I fed you, breathed for you, became a pathway for the flushing currents of our mother’s blood.
As you slept, I was your cradle and your guard; when you awoke I was your companion.
Together for that last day I leashed you the very limits of our linking line before releasing you to the touch of others-
lovers, yes. But surely none will hold you as nearly, as sweetly or as softly as I did.
As our connection was severed, you wept for me once, then were gone.
Carry me deep in your heart as you bury me in the soil of our home, for I am the earth of your making”
-Kate Alice, 2002
The placenta is an incredibly amazing organ, and we want to spread the placenta love with all of you! Come join our Placenta Specialist, Amanda Schnarr, for this informative 2.5 hour workshop. We will be covering the basic functions (really, there’s nothing “basic” about it!) and anatomy, ancient and modern traditions, common conditions, placenta ingestion and encapsulation, and print making. AND, everyone will have the opportunity to make and take their own placenta print keepsake!
This workshop will be full of great information for birth workers who are looking to support their clients postpartum health and also for individuals considering consumption for themselves!
If you are a current student of The Nesting Instinct, this course will count towards one of your advanced training requirements.
