CLOSING OF THE BONES
The Closing of the Bones is a healing ceremony which can be done at any time – even years – after the birth. It involves a beautiful massage followed by a healing and soothing bath on the deck. Then there’s a conscious tea ceremony after the arrival of your support team - often the Doula, midwife or partner who were present at the birth – for a re-telling of the birth story to Suzie or a loved one/s.
This ceremony is a transformative and emotional experience for all those holding space with you.
All those present perform a Closing of the Bones to wrap the body which metaphysically and physically represents a closing of the chapter in life called “Re-birthing Yourself”. It’s a process of conscious connection to mind-body and your story over time.
Your baby can be present or not, depending on your wishes.
The Closing of the Bones Ceremony is also a beautiful gift idea for a birthing woman. Please get in touch if you would like to talk about organising this ceremony for a woman you know.
