Mother Blessing (Blessingway) from $250 (Prices will vary for customised ceremonies)
A Mother Blessing differs from a baby shower in that it focuses on the woman and her transformation into mother in a deeper way than at a party with a showering of gifts. Gifts may be included, but instead of practical items or pretty clothing, gifts are symbolic or carry special meaning, such as an heirloom being passed down, or the gift of a poem being read. A woman may have a traditional baby shower and also savor the ritual of a blessingway. These ceremonies welcome and honor a woman as she enters this new transformational time in her life.
I will provide materials for your chosen rituals – for stringing your Blessing necklace or bracelet (guests provide the beads), materials for belly painting, footbath ingredients, some decoration for the Blessing Circle, ceremony candle etc. If you wish to do a belly cast there will be an additional fee for extra materials.
