Prenatal and Perinatal Healing Happens in Layers

A Primer for Practitioners and Clients

Three 90 Minute Classes PLUS 1 Free Class

Previously Recorded Course

Lifelong Access

Over many years of practice and education, I have crafted an approach to helping practitioners and clients learn about earliest layers of experience. In this short course, I introduce three maps that provide a guide to skills and themes in prenatal and perinatal healing.

Map One includes the autonomic nervous system natural and threat responses and the physiology of trauma. I teach the map influenced by Anna Chitty and Ray Castellino. Their approach is the basis for my practitioner training and therapeutic approach.

Map Two introduces Blueprint and Imprint as a way of understanding our earliest experiences, and then five distinct layers of experience. When working with adults, we can weave a healing or corrective experience by pulling from these layers. Many practitioners are aware of shock and developmental trauma, and what is unique about working with prenatal and perinatal realm is that we include our earliest development. These five layers include embryology, energy anatomy, and a basic orientation to health and resilience.

Map Three is a direct layout of the earliest layers starting with preconception. I will introduce each layer through the lens of Blueprint and Imprint.

Each class will be 90 minutes long. The live classes will be recorded on zoom and uploaded into the online classroom. You will have lifelong access to the recordings, handouts and maps.
