For my hundreds of screaming fans who live in the Washington D.C. area, please come to my workshop on birth stories at the Perinatal Birth Symposium taking place at George Mason University this coming Wednesday, October 7th, at 1 p.m.
You don’t have to have given birth to participate. Why do I say this? Because I haven’t given birth and I’m the workshop leader. Birth stories are about so much more than just “giving” birth. They’re about belonging, about being linked to a particular set of people, about women being linked to other women, about humans being linked to other humans….They’re about life and death and healing and religion and spirituality and, well, EVERYTHING. But of course, I have a few more specific things to say than that.
And I expect participants will have lots of wise and wonderful things to say as well. I can’t wait.
I’m on at 1 p.m. in Mason Hall, D13. Bring your brownbag lunch.
