The Sacred Womb Medicine Woman Training Year 1 has been a very deep and explorative journey into what it means to me to be human. A feminine cyclical being, a masculine magical being, and an integrated human being. I felt held by the wise and experienced guidance of Melanie Swan and I felt held by our loving and supportive community of womb sisters. I feel great gratitude for all I have learned, remembered and experienced.
Voice Of Truth
I am sharing some songs that resonated with my journey. Songs about reclaiming my wild nature, letting myself sink into the depths of healing with the support of sisterhood, feeling the expansiveness of my feminine nature, honoring my blood and my deep sacred connection to the Earth and the cosmos, and honoring all parts of myself as sacred. All of this and so much more are gifts I will carry with me from this year’s journey.
The past nine months in the Womb Medicine Woman Training has created a “Unified Me”. Through introspection and the loving guidance and wisdom from Melanie Swan I have integrated the parts of myself that were fragmented and polarized. When I first started this training I had been charting my cycle for 1 1/2 years or so, but it didn’t create the level of embodiment this training provided for me in the safety of a circle with other powerful women. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxtGJ61e2rw&feature=emb_title Now, instead of just intellectually knowing how my cycle works, I know how my cycle feels and flows in a more intimate way. My womb consciousness has been ignited and it fuels me with a sense of inspiration, fire, passion and wisdom that can not be learned from a book, it must be learned through experience, devotion and practice. Melanie creates the birthing space for all of this to happen. I am beyond excited to begin year two and to weave all of this knowledge into my Advising I provide for my own clients that want to further connect to their Feminine Power. This has been life changing for me and I have no doubt it will for you too!

This is a story of how I reconnected with my beautiful and infinite self. Chipping away at those parts that have been telling me for years that I don’t matter and that I am not worthy. I have changed that story this past year into one of trust, love and compassion. I have found the courage to step out and up and to embrace the fact that life can be easy and fun.
This year has brought me closer to my center. It has helped me weave a deeper trust in myself; my body, emotions and womb. Melanie holds the space with integrity and humanity while trusting each woman’s highest truth. Having this truth honored in a trusting circle of women in a safe container has been incredibly healing. It has reminded me that my true nature is at the center of all the physical and emotional weather that fluctuates with the spin of each cycle. I understand on a more somatic level that there is nothing ‘wrong’ with me. That I am not my emotions. My mind knew this before but I was still feeling shame about my migraines and anxiety. Like I was doing something wrong or deeper still, that I was irrevocably wounded. From the experience of participating in circle for nine months, having all the phases of my cycle, my highest highs and my lowest lows witnessed, I feel a great sigh of relief. The space to speak and heal and breathe without judgement has let my body remember safety. The container and acceptance of the group has helped me reintegrate and grow acceptance and compassion for the underdeveloped parts of myself. I can now feel myself growing with the possibilities of what this work means and the places it is asking to flow. A womb-full prayer of gratitude for this year, for your teachings Melanie and for my wise sisters. Big love!
