Womb & Birth Process Workshops in Santa Rosa, CA

A Womb & Birth Process Workshop is a safe, small group purposefully created to safely process and integrate pre-conception, womb, birth and early infancy and attachment issues. Participants often leave with a sense of increased connection both to themselves and others.

The group is suitable for professionals and non-professionals who want to explore their core foundational imprinting, and achieve a coherent somatic emotional narrative. Each person will have time to explore, with support, their own unique intention.

You will learn Ray Castellino’s seven principles as we lay the ground for the group and create the surround. The principles are: Confidentiality, Choice, Self-Care, Touch/Contact, The Pause, Brief Frequent Eye Contact and Mutual Support & Cooperation.

There will be a maximum of three participants in the group and each person will have a session facilitated by Karen. You will have an opportunity to be held in a loving relational field, to heal and integrate your prenatal/baby self. This special group surround will support you to learn more about how the foundational period of your life is affecting you in the present, and will nurture some new internal resources. There will be a debrief after each session which will help you to integrate your session work. The first two debriefs will be online (Zoom) the day after the group session, and will be recorded for the person who took the session. The last session debrief will happen in-person in the group after the session is finished.

Outcomes of this work can be:

  • Feeling more grounded, integrated, coherent, settled and calm
  • A deeper understanding of yourself and your relationship and attachment dynamics
  • A sense of being touched in places that were previously isolated or walled off
  • A felt-sense experience of expansion and opening to love that can happen when we are held in a surround of love, welcome and respect.

Dates for Upcoming Workshop Series: 

Each workshop is a three part series run over three consecutive Sundays with two post-session debriefs on Zoom the day following the session to be attended by all group members. A commitment to all  dates/times is essential to register.
