JOIN US IN FACILITATING TRANSFORMATION

|| Our Program and Practices take inspiration from Celtic Spirituality, Core Shamanism, Traditional European Folk Healing, the Rewilding Movement, the science of Biomechanics & Epigenetics, Modern New Age practices, Quantum Physics, Traditional Midwifery & Womb-carrier wellness Practices, & they are Deeply Rooted in the Quantum & Instinctual Paradigms ||
<< moving out of the Technocratic-Humanistic-Holistic paradigms >>
The core beliefs and teachings of Brighid's Hearth Church & the Priestess Midwyf-Healer Program have been influenced by the teachings of Jeannine Parvati Baker, Ina May Gaskin, Whapio Diane Bartlett of The Matrona, Jane Hardwicke Collings of The School of Shamanic Womancraft, Michel Odent, & Others.
