Upfront & Straight forward


Donations

In view of the current situation in North India – lack of awareness amongst pregnant parents and medical professionals as well as a lack of facilities –  we have decided to move forward with a hands-on-approach: we ask for donations. The money that reaches us will be immediately used for awareness campaigns, networking & research, website maintenance AND eventually for funding the implementation of a holistic birthing sanctuary near Dehradun (Uttarakhand). 

Thank you very much in advance for your support.

The Greatness of Women

“I call on the next generation of young women to be the mothers of the Compassionate Revolution that this century so desperately needs. You have a special role to play in creating a better world. It is often thought that women are more empathic and sensitive, and more receptive to the feelings of others. These are qualities that are embodied by mothers. In this sense, women are models of humanity.”
~ His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama

“There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of woman is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing.”
~ Swami Vivekananda

”In this creation, why is the female more powerful energetically than the male? In the Vedic tradition, they say the female has one additional unbelievable chakra, her womb. The woman’s kingdom is a hundred times more powerful than the man’s, because she has an ability to give birth to any creation.
They say God’s entire creation is hidden in a woman’s womb. Even if God wants to come on this planet he has to choose a female and go through a mother’s womb. God can only come through that channel. The woman is the creator, she’s pulling the energy, she’s receiving the energy, and she’s creating with that. What can you take from her and create? Does it make sense logically? Number one, the woman is the receiver, from that she can give to the kids, and she can bless the man with her love. She can give joy; she can create happiness; she can give peace of mind; she can change the energy and bless it.What else does the man need in the world?
If a man meditated one day and a woman meditated one hour, huge same. I’m not buttering. That’s absolutely true. When they’re pulling the energy, mostly it is going to the womb. It is going to the womb. A woman’s Womb Chakra really helps her to pull the energy very strongly. It’s actually a power spot. It’s completely a divine power. Women’s kingdom, please try to recognize this. It’s God’s gift you came as a woman on this planet.”
~ Sri Kaleshwar 

Healing powers of Spiraling

Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova speaks about ‘Spiraling’:

“When asked directly about why the Birth Into Being Method has such a staggering display of efficiency, I would always limit myself by saying something like ‘one of the main factors is that all of our processes are experienced by participants in a slightly altered states, achieved by a few very specific types of movement alternating with a few very specific types of breathing’. That was the most revealing statement about my work that I was open to sharing publically, feeling that I can’t properly introduce this deeply mystical experience in a brief intro and do it justice by giving out only a fraction of information. But at this point, it feels right to start sharing more openly. So, in this interview, you can see a short version of the First type of movement, necessary to gently ascend the group of people into that proverbial slightly altered state, up into the vortex of the Birthing Field, the very source of our creativity and sexuality, into the pre-cognitive space ‘beyond the Story’, in which they can easily access and activate their Free Will.  Done properly, it goes with very deep breathing in the rhythm of waves rolling on a seashore.  Do try this at home. It feels incredibly healing, recharging, rejuvenating. Let your body flow like a piece of seaweed on a bottom of a shallow lagoon, completely at the mercy of the pulse of Life Force that charges and moves the water around it! Allow yourself to experience in real time that level of surrender, support, and mercy, all at the same time… Sending you so much sweet longing for more of THAT in your Life, that will inevitably bring you more… It all starts with us knowing what we want and what we don’t want. Lots of Love and Blessings, Elena”

Midlife mums: Pregnant over 40

Given that in India the average marriage-age for men is 26 and 22 for women*, and in rural regions even earlier, the median age at first pregnancy is 20. In Western countries the average age for women to have their first baby has risen to 29 and above – and with that an increase in books, blogs and other media featuring women getting pregnant in their 40s can be observed. In contrast to India: the fact that women can have healthy happy babies also at a later stage in their lives seems doomed unrealistic (by most doctors) and undesirable. BUT once a 40+ woman is pregnant or once the baby is delivered, hardly anybody raises an eyebrow. Pregnant women and mothers are adored and honoured in India.

Time for an awareness and paradigm shift amongst Indian women, couples and above all amongst Indian doctors, gynaecologists and nurses.

I’m very much in favour of exploring life and getting to know yourself and the world in your 20s and 30s before settling down, getting married and starting a family. Expand your horizon, be whole and complete within yourself, your body-mind-soul, first. 

Apart from humanity struggling with excess population, this world has enough children who were conceived accidentally and un-lovingly. India has enough couples that follow blindly what everybody else is doing, what their families expect and what society dictates, without checking what is their own real calling. 

Starting a family and having children takes a long term commitment and spiritual maturity. Ideally we have mothers and fathers who choose conscious conception, conscious birthing and conscious parenting. However, this does not tend to be on one’s radar when only 20 or 25 years old.

I am neither in favour of a late pregnancy, nor am I against it. I just want to point out that conceiving a healthy happy baby later in life IS possible. And we have to acknowledge that society in the East and West is changing, and more women are having babies at an older age, for a variety of reasons.

Here a small selection of the inspiring material that is already out there:
