The Rite of the Womb

The Rite of the Womb is the 10th Rite of the Munay-Ki.

It connects us to a lineage of women who freed themselves from suffering.

 

Emotions like pain, fear, guilt, anger, shame (residues of trauma or adverse experiences) accumulate in our wombs - and it has been like this for millenia. These “energetic imprints” can lead to physical and psychological disease, emotional hardship and a blockage of life energy and creativity.

Receiving the Rite will help you to release emotions that you might (unconsciously) hold in your womb space. As my teacher Marcela Lobos says so beautifully: “This initiation clears the womb so that it can be the pristine vessel for all that we choose to birth in our lives”. It is all about empowering you to be your whole, creative, joyful, and fulfilled self.

The Rite has great power. It can bring tremendous physical, psychological and emotional healing.

It helps to reconcile the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine within you which can lead to major shifts in your life - and ultimately more balance, harmony and fulfilment.

The Rite of the Womb is inclusive - everyone is invited to receive it. This work is independent of

gender definitions, stages of life or medical interventions like hysterectomies. 

Womb energy is not limited to people carrying a physical womb - in a broader sense,

it represents the creative potential and life-force within us.

I am deeply passionate about sharing the Rite of the Womb in ceremony, either one-on-one or with a group, in person or online, and ideally as part of a cocoa ceremony.

The Rite is a wonderful gift for yourself and everyone you love.   

"The womb is

not a place to store fear or pain.

The womb is

to create and give birth to life."

Nurturing the Rite

The Rite of the Womb  is a powerful initiation - and there is great power and magic in nourishing the connection with your womb for a full year after receiving the rite. This will support its power and bring great healing on many levels.

 

Depending on the phase of your life, please choose from the different options for nourishing the rite:

  1. If you are in your fertile years, offer some of your menstrual blood to the Earth. You can bleed directly on the Earth, or collect some of your blood in a small bowl and pour it on the Earth.

  2. If you are in your post-menopausal years, then you can perform a ritual on the dark moon. Create a private space to offer red wine to the Earth.

  3. A girl before menarche (first menstrual blood) that has received the Rite of the Womb may offer flowers to the full moon, celebrating her "womb-bud" that will bloom in the future.

  4. If you are pregnant, you may offer flowers during the full moon, celebrating the life you carry in your womb like a fertility goddess. One the baby is born, you can offer the placenta to the Earth and speak your heart's longing.

  5. Share the Rite of the Womb with the women in your community. Each time you pass on this initiation, you strengthen its power within you.

When making your offering to the earth, please repeat the words below - and bring in others that ring true for you.

​​

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.
