What's Dying to Be Born?

Redefining Fertility for Child-Free Women

“It’s been communicated in the teachings of the ancient wisdom keepers that one must hold the space that is not yet occupied, in order to open the space that does not yet exist.”

What if fertility is a powerful capacity that lives in every woman, which can be harnessed to bring all kinds of dreams to life? What if our inherent sense to nurture could be infused into our deeply held causes, missions and soul-callings?

What's within you, dying to be born?: What are your creative seeds that cannot wait to breathe precious new air and feel light on their skin?  

What's dying to be born?: What do we need to let go of, bury and burn so that our soils are fertile and receptive for our seeds to be planted and take root?

Many women who are on the child-free journey, either by choice or circumstances, have experienced the hard feelings of shame, guilt, resentment, anger, pain, defensiveness or sadness.  A loss of identity looms.

Yet... There is something within that calls to us, waits for us, and buoys us. A freedom, lightness, community, belonging, unleashed maternal energy, pro-creation and manifestation. It is from this place where our dreams can be born, where we can access a larger picture of what the divine feminine can mean.

During our time together, we'll tap into your unique seeds of creation, desire and identity. We'll explore an alternative notion of partnership around birthing something into your world or nurturing a soul longing.  We'll create community around shared experiences, food, and ceremony. We'll burn limiting beliefs (literally and figuratively). We'll rub some soul vapo-rub on the shame, judgement and lack. We'll create a fresh sense of legacy, how we honor our history and nurture our future.

You'll leave with your unique representation of what's dying to be born, an inspiring visual reminder to bring back to your world. You'll also become part of a private facebook group of other women on this path, witnessing and being witnessed to your wholeness, your abundance, your heart-felt tending to our world.

Regardless of where you are on your child-free path, temporary or permanent, questioning or firmly decided, there is room for your exploration here.

We will be serving a gluten free, vegetarian lunch as well as having an assortment of yummy, healthy snacks to keep us nourished through this experience. Please let us know if you have any dietary considerations we should hold in mind.  Oh, and there will also be chocolate because, well, chocolate.

A bit about your leaders:

Adrienne:  I’ve always lived by the saying “life is not about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.”  After years of swirling in the charged emotional landscape of considering a child-free life, and finding myself on this path by hard choice has led me to realize this isn't a journey to be taken alone and the gift that that comes with a child-free community. There is no finish line (at least not one I’ve found yet!), so now I’m actively creating a new life that is rich with possibility, laughter, adventure, mega impact and deep connection.

Molly is living the question of what is dying to be born every day.  Conscious of the tremendous fertility that lives in her, she is actively asking the Universe what is the best use of her energies while in this particular body at this moment in time? What act or acts of creation will best serve her highest purpose? What Molly knows for sure is that whatever she creates, it will be done in deep communion with her body and the wisdom that lives deep in her womb.  

A few things to note:

1)Your leaders are not licensed therapists.  This workshop is not therapy.  We assume you are mentally healthy, self-aware and responsible for your own choices and are desiring to be more empowered creators of your life. 

2) There will be a camera filming Adrienne and Molly so that we may gain a deeper awareness of our skills as Co-Active leaders and further our learning and growth.  

Curious if this experience is for you?  Have any questions or concerns?  Feel free to reach out to one or both of us at Molly.Flanagan@gmail.com or Adrienne.Ruzic@gmail.com

Cost: $100 which includes food, community, laughter and a special item to bring home.
