“The womb is not a place to store fear and pain. The womb is to create and give birth to life.”
The Rite of the Womb is a simple but profound transmission to release trauma from the womb, and bring strength and support to your creativity on all levels. After receiving the rite, you need to nurture it with a small ritual of release, for the next 13 moons, or as long as you need. It is given from woman to woman (and occasionally given to men) for personal healing, as well as for the collective. As the number of women who have received it grows, the health and wellbeing of the women of the world and ultimately the health of the world itself, is enhanced.
I received the Rite from Kate Dineen at a ceremony in the Red Hearth House in Stroud in 2016, and it has been an important part of my journey of healing and awakening. I am honoured to share the rite with anyone who feels called, and from time to time I offer a group ceremony.
The Rite of the Womb is the 13th of the Munay Ki, sacred transmissions from the lineage of shaman in the Peruvian Andes. Marcela Lobos was the first to receive the rite in 2014, and has passed it on to many women who continue to spread its energy. She writes:
“And now you are the lineage as much as I am the lineage. We are becoming women who freed themselves from suffering. Keep nurturing the rite until there is no more fear or pain in your womb.”
Once you have received the Rite of the Womb, you are invited to ‘nurture it’ for at least 13 moons, using these words as you offer some of your menstrual blood to the earth (or wine for those who are not menstruating).
I release my fear, so I may embrace freedom.
I release my pain, so I may embrace joy.
I release my anger, so I may embrace compassion.
I release my sadness, so I may embrace peace.
I put the words to music, to help me remember them.
