Ideas for Blessing Ways: Honouring the Expectant Mother Through Gathering and Ritual

by on Feb.03, 2012, under Class Resources

A Blessing Way does not have to take on spiritual connotations, nor involve “ritual” if that idea may make the mother uncomfortable. Ritual is simply a series of actions combined with spoken or written words that are focused around a common intent or purpose.

All teachers vary widely in their teaching and performance philsosphies, practice, methods, and styles. Each teacher does have her own unique ways of breaking down moves, teaching prop work, correcting, and generally passing on knowledge. (continue reading…)
