"As you give birth to your baby, you also give birth to a new you."

Online class takes place in Dutch or English depending on the group.

When you’re pregnant, a lot of emphasis is on what’s the visible changes in your life: the growth of your belly, preparing a room for the baby, how you will divide your time between work and care etc.

There’s far less attention for the huge process of inner change. Every woman who becomes a mother goes through a deep transformation process that is hardly recognised by our society.

Becoming a mother often brings up memories of your own childhood. This can be hard sometimes, but is also an opportunity for healing. The very physical experience of pregnancy and the upcoming birth may invite you to revise the relationship with your body.

In this class you’ll learn about this forgotten rite of passage from Maiden to Mother. You’ll learn how to uncover and recognize your own path on this sacred journey. From a holistic viewpoint you’ll learn how hormonal changes influence your inner emotional state. We’ll touch upon some collective Maiden to Mother themes, such as: finding your inner compass, voice and wisdom.

You’ll learn more about healthy boundary setting and the art of asking for help. In this class you’ll learn tools that will help you be a loving witness to your own inner journey. You’ll be inspired on how to document your journey in your own unique way. Ultimately, this class is about how to be a mother for yourself first.

This class is for you if:

  • You are pregnant and feel there must be more to it
  • You find it difficult to connect to your pregnancy and baby
  • You don’t quite feel like yourself since you’re pregnant
  • You have a lack of energy and can’t seem to focus like you used to
  • Pregnancy brings up memories and emotions of your own childhood
  • Pregnancy makes you very emotional
  • You have difficulty setting clear boundaries with people
  • You’re hesitant to ask for help

Also interesting:

  • This class is also interesting if you’re in the conception process. You will already gently invite the mother energy into your transformational process.
  • Don’t know if you want to be a mother because the way it’s portrayed from the ‘outside’ doesn’t fit your inside? Explore your own identity as a mother in this class.

What you’ll learn:

  • How pregnancy can become a time of inner growth and healing
  • Understand the influence of hormonal changes on your feelings, energy and inner self
  • You will learn about forgotten rites of passage and rituals around pregnancy, birth and the transition to motherhood
  • You will know how to find your inner base and compass
  • You’ll get insight in healthy boundary setting and the art of asking for help
  • You’ll get inspiration about how to witness and document your motherhood journey

What you’ll take away from this class:

  • Your inner compass in pregnancy
  • Connection to yourself, your feelings, your pregnancy and your baby
  • Deeper compassion for yourself in this journey
  • More sovereignty, boundaries and empowerment in pregnancy

Reviews

De les Rites of Passage van Monique is een echte aanrader voor alle vrouwen die zwanger of net bevallen zijn, en bewust willen worden van de spirituele transformatie die moederschap brengt. Monique heeft een prachtige energie waarbij ze iedereen heel welkom liet voelen in de les. Ze heeft veel kennis over de vergeten rituelen rondom moederschap en kan daar prachtig over vertellen. Ook begeleidde ze ons in een hele mooie meditatie en brachten de oefeningen en verhalen van de andere vrouwen veel inzicht en herkenning. ~ Petra
