Join in the vision of Jeannine Parvati:
“Like many of us, I have been praying with my ears, listening to midwives all around the world. How can we (wo)manifest the vision of unity that would serve families? Meditating upon the divisions between birth attendants, a vision came to me. I saw a circle wherein the tribes called to heal the Earth by healing birth sat together. It was a medicine wheel, with all styles of midwifery and obstetrics represented." JP
On June 27-29 we will call this circle, this gathering of the tribes. You know your tribe, perhaps you are a childbirth educator, ICEA, Lamaze, Bradly, or a birth activist with the Birth Activist Collective, Improving Birth, Birthing the Future or Human Rights in Childbirth. Maybe you are a mother who wants to share the power of birth, or perhaps a mother who wants to share your birth trauma. Maybe you are a lawyer who feels that the social injustice is too great to bear alone any longer. Or maybe you are a midwife or doctor who has been arrested for protecting birth. Whatever your reason we welcome you. We welcome you to the gathering of the clans. Together for three days we will vision, share, and become inspired to change the dominate birth paradigm on planet earth.
We will call on our elders: Michel Odent MD, Raven Lang OMD, William Emerson PhD, Robin Lim CPM, Suzanne Arms, Karen Strange CPM, and many others. We will meet with the new generation of birth visionaries, who will inspire us to action. We will learn new technique from seasoned activists in social justice and environmental movements. We will be inspired to organize like never before by the Black Panther Women. Our time has come, we will wait no longer.
When we leave on Sunday the 29th we will be armed and dangerous. We will have a plan and we will know we are not alone. Together we will join with our sisters and brothers across the planet that are holding vision with OMAPE’s Global Prenatal Imitative, to take this message to the United Nation. We will join with our partner organizations the Association of Pre and Perinatal Psychology and Health (APPPAH), and The International Society for Pre-and Perinatal Psychology and Medicine (ISPPN )in Europe who are working to take this message to the world. We ask you now to join with us and our many partners to build a turquoise wave, a BIRTH rEVOLution that will transform the way humanity gives birth in the next generation. We must act now. If you are feeling the call we need you. Please do not let anything stop you we have work scholarships and discounts for students, just ask if you need help attending. Bring your heart and your voice and together we will change birth for the future of our planet.
