Breast Doula Companion Training and Community
I felt as though I had been dropped out of a helicopter into a desert when I received a breast cancer diagnosis. I was healthy, 45, nursed all three of my babies, ate healthy organic foods, no history of hereditary cancer on either side of my family and there I was- launched into the medical system which was as foreign to me as a barren land. I felt as though nothing was safe any more- could I trust my food? My deodorant? Was there something lurking in my house that caused this? I was seeking answers and reasons and everything felt like a mirage– just when it looked like an oasis of clean clear water ahead it turned out to be something *else.*
But, here is what I found. It was not a desert I was dropped into. It was simply terrain that I did not know how to navigate. And, although it felt overwhelming, and seriously turned into a part-time job (that I was not looking for) I woke up to the human experience of simply being *alive.* As a life-long meditator and one who has embraced deathcare for decades I certainly knew how to appreciate living life! I thought that I had touched the fullness of my life’s experience in comparison to the very feeble, very old and very deceased that I had cared for. How wrong I was. Today, I am more alive, more in love, more healthy than I ever could have fully understood prior to my medical journey. There was a lot to let go of, a lot to understand, a lot to heal and many new ways of calibrating to learn about.
This is what I know. There is so much more than the medical body– but very likely your doctors won’t tell you the fullness of it. And they don’t need to! They were not trained to understand how very many ways there are to heal. We can allow doctors to do what they do best, and we, as self-advocates, as community, as the complex beings that we are, can open to what is beyond the medical charts. It’s easy to feel like we are specimens and that there is a divide between healthy and sick. There is so much more than that.
Beyond this, beyond that, we have the ability to heal deeply. These trainings and workshops will center you into your own source energy to unwrap the gift of peace of mind and greater clarity to navigate your medical, emotional and spiritual journey in a way that brings you comfort and perhaps even joy.
