CIRCLE FOR LOSS: A CEREMONY TO HONOR A MOTHER’S STORY OF STILLBIRTH
WITH PAULA MALLIS
In honor and in recognition of October being Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, Circle for Loss will be an opportunity to honor the stories of the women who have experienced stillbirth. We will gather in a safe and sacred space; a space created for women to openly share their stories of the loss of their baby and honor the individuality of the healing process of each woman, as there is no timeline or rules around when and how to grieve a loss of a baby. During the ceremony, the space will be held for the mother’s story of loss while acknowledging the soul of the baby. We will create an alter together in remembrance of the baby's souls. Please bring an offering for the alter that you will take home with you. Light nourishment will be provided after the ceremony.
This circle is donation based
WMN SPACE FOUNDER
Paula is a facilitator of women's circles and founder of WMN SPACE. When she was pregnant with her daughter Madeleine and navigating her own journey into motherhood, something shifted within her. She experienced a shift in consciousness that allowed her the opportunity to choose a more conscious approach to her life as a woman and mother.
Paula blends together her experience as a mother, her expertise as a doula, a facilitator, and her extensive training in spiritual psychology. Paula believes "birth" can manifest in many forms for women. As women, we have the opportunity to birth babies, projects, new versions of ourselves and all that we are called to bring into the world. Supporting women on their own unique journey in life is her deepest passion.
