“We can midwife what is trying to come into consciousness”. Years ago, I joined 20 other people in a sweat lodge experience meant to be a reliving of one’s birth. Much of that experience seemed to mimic my own birth. I was born by caesarean and I have been told that those of us born this way will continue to birth ourselves. I can still remember being lifted out of the sweat lodge, not knowing who helped me and not sure if I wanted to remain inside or come outside where it seemed cold and lonely. So it is with a spiritual rebirth -often met with hesitation and reluctance at first.
