Pam England, author and founder of "Birthing From Within," is reviving a nearly forgotten tradition of using labyrinth meditations, ceremonies and great stories in childbirth preparation and healing. She wrote this book in response to a growing yearning among new parents for ceremony and personal growth during the childbearing year.
The timeless and powerful symbol of the labyrinth forms the core of this collection of fourteen meditations and ceremonies designed to transform the experience of the childbearing year. A variety of labyrinths, including childbirth labyrinths from many cultures and traditions, are presented in this book, along with the history and symbolism of the labyrinth and black-and-white illustrations and photos on nearly every page. Beautiful instructions for drawing and making a variety of labyrinths are included.
