Welcome to Meditations from Hawaii for Birthing With Wisdom. This is a compilation of visuals that helped me long ago on my journey through pregnancy and childbirth, and have guided many women in my prenatal yoga classes and childbirth classes through their own journeys into motherhood and beyond. During the pregnancies of my two sons, my husband and I were living on the beach on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. The power of nature is so vivid and so tangible in the Islands, that I found my surroundings to be a great source of inspiration. I drew upon these images to bring me my strength and my sense of calm. The images reminded me how childbirth IS the power of nature! I would like to share those meditations with you. This CD is made so that you may listen to one meditation at a time. The more often that you find time to relax, the easier it will be to have trust and relaxation as part of your labor and birth. I hope that you find a sense of calm and stillness as you listen. And a sense of mental, physical and emotional connection with your baby! And of course, the spirit of Hawaii and Aloha! This CD was lovingly made by Robin Gruver, ICCE, and could not have been "Birthed With Wisdom" without the beautiful musical talent, guidance, support and production of Dania Koenig and Dino Soldo.
