Womb Work

womb work

Carving out the bones of women’s stories, the myths of wild seeds that have been buried in the old memories stir. In the beloved garden, you can hear her attending to what has been neglected and forgotten. See her for She belongs to you. She is weaver of your inner rhythms, the knower of your soul, the wild offering, the bringer back to life. 

There are many pathways, conversations that lead us back to our body, to this place we call home. Walking with you through the sanctity of your soul’s dreaming, Rain will listen, support and guide you into the personal and ancient records of your womb’s remembering.    

the closing of the bones

Originating in south america, the Closing the Bones ceremony is traditionally performed as a postnatal healing, however it is also beneficial for those who may have experienced birthing trauma, child loss and sexual assault. The practice calls back, into the mother’s body, the spirit, the stories, the gifts and the ancient songs. It knows she is carrier of birthing medicine, the essence and language of life. The Closing the Bones ceremony helps the mother return energetically and physically back to herself. After being opened wide through the birthing process, the practice uses rebozos (traditional shawls) to rock and articulate the mother’s hips, assisting the bones and cartilage to return to normal position. This is followed by a deep abdominal and pelvic girdle massage.  Finally, the rebozos are used to gently wrap and seal, from head to toe, all the living essence within the mother. The Closing the Bones ritual speaks to the timeless love of a mother’s heart. It is a nurturing space, that works on the deep movement of psychical, emotional, physical and spiritual energy, where women can feel safe to embrace new aspects of themselves, release long held stagnant patterns and heal birthing trauma. The Closing the Bones ceremony is a doorway to a deeper life, a celebration of the body’s beauty, the unfurling of a wild medicine that belongs to all of us.      


the 13th rite of the womb

Rain proudly stands with a lineage of women from the healing and spiritual traditions of the Andes and amazon to offer the 13th rite of the womb as a sacred womb keeper. 

This is a lineage of women who freed themselves from suffering. This lineage of women wants us to remember:
The womb is not a place to store fear and pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life.

The feminine spirit of the jungle reminds us of this simple and vital truth:
The womb is not a place to store fear and pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life.

This lineage of women through the jungle medicine has given us the 13th rite of the Munay-Ki: The Rite of the Womb.
Once you receive it, you share it with as many women as possible.

You raise your hands and summon the lineage by saying:
The womb is not a place to store fear and pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life.

You activate the rite within yourself by placing both hands over your womb and repeating:
The womb is not a place to store fear and pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life.

You transmit the wisdom from your womb to hers:
The womb is not a place to store fear and pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life.

She affirms that she received the wisdom in her womb.
The womb is not a place to store fear and pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life.

the rites were first transmitted to Marcela lobos, a medicine woman and senior staff member at the Four Winds Society and is married to its founder, Alberto Villoldo. rain received her rites in ceremony in November 2016.
