On Being: A Doula
To the babies that chose me, thank you.
To the mothers that trusted their intuition + baby, thank you.
To have developed that trust, not for a second do I take for granted.
It's been an honor to heal with you.
Daily, often moment by moment, I am asked to define myself. I am asked this through a series of questions. And while I have the awareness that many people want to find a way to relate, I am also in the awareness that many people ask because titles give definitions - and well, it's just easier to label people in categories.
Today was a group meditation for one of the companies that I curate with. You know, typically, 10-15 people find time on any given session to stop and focus on their breathing. But today there was just one. And a man at that. And we flowed with it.
