Each conference corresponds with a full moon. Throughout time people have gathered at the new and full moon, the moons serving as guideposts and metaphors for the cyclical nature of life. Like circles of old, LunaSpeaks serves to create a container for community members to gather and receive wisdom and support from one another and from “elders”. In this case individuals with a deep knowledge base and expertise in areas related to birthing and raising a family.
LunaSpeaks is one way that we at Birth Love Family are working to reverse this trend. This particular circle happens online, and yet it is based in the Vermont community with real people. We are committed to holding safe and even sacred space for people to come together in vulnerability as inquiring, expectant and new parents, and as professionals, to share authentically and with one another.
