Embodying Birth as a spiritual practice – a guide for the modern woman.

By Maha Al Musa

Conception : pregnancy : birth : mothering : parenting : a journey that takes us on a wild ride through the terrain of our own psyche to liberate, challenge, transform and asks us to look within to find our inner truths. We cannot help but to navigate into our deepest unfolding and be open to what we find. This journey is big, bold, overwhelming, invigorating, surprising and everything in between. There is so much to digest; the expected and the unexpected expectancy. No matter which way we view this glistening diamond, it will become one of our lives greatest adventures as we weave our own experience into the greater tapestry of our collective Humanity.
