Postpartum: the Time of the Diet

Ramiro Romero Retreat – Day 5
20 oktober 2019

Postpartum: the Time of the Diet

The 40 days that follow the birth are sacred and require specific care.
According to the tradition, it is a time when the mother goes and lives through the physical world and the spiritual world at the same time, when the clear waters and the dark waters are mixed, when the mothers true face is reflected in its real mirror so that illusions she carries can be spotted and cut.

It is a time of darkness; but within there is a path, where the newborn is transitioning, landing here on this side upon the body of the mother. The mother’s body and spirit are open, exposed and vulnerable.

At this time of recuperation she should be looked after and respected so she can rest and leave the inner worlds to fall back into their place. Traditionally this time is referred to as ‘La Dieta’.

In this workshop we will discover the ancestral thought in order to deeply learn about the postnatal process in all of its dimensions, learning from the traditional ways of care during this period. We will practise massages and rubs, amongst other things.

Sunday October 20th
Time:  09:30 – 18:30
Duration: 8 hours
Cost: 135 Euros
This includes a vegan lunch, coffee, tea and some fruit.

Ramiro Romero Retreat

We are very happy to welcome Ramiro Romero, traditional indigenous midwife from Colombia.
This October he will visit the Netherlands to offer five workshops.

For over 20 years, his Mujeres Bachué foundation has been leading the practices of Traditional Indigenous Midwifery in Colombia, as an alternative way of care and support of women’s sexual and reproductive decision-making process; focusing on pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum care. At this pivotal moment, it is of great importance to share this knowledge in order to protect and preserve it.

We met Ramiro Romero at the Healthy Birth, Healthy Earth conference in Findhorn, Schotland, in 2016. His workshops and teachings were such a source of knowledge combined with a distinctively different and healing perspective on all things surrounding women’s work in birth, death and beyond.

This fall Ramiro Romero is touring Europe to teach, and will come to Amsterdam to give 5 workshops.

The workshops are in English (Ramiro speaks in Spanish, with a translator present) – translation to Dutch possible, if needed.

These workshops are organised in partnership with the Birth Sisters and Geboortenis.

You can join us for single day workshops or buy a combination ticket.
