Journey to the Great Midwife-The Art & Heart of Midwifery
Being with birth is more than techniques. Midwifery is also art – the art of being in the moment; the art of dancing with personalities; the art of making choices; the art of creating what’s needed in this now.
In this 6 week class Terra Rafael shares tools for accessing your most artful way of being with birth, and with your life. These include inner journeys, holistic health techniques, activities for experimentation, examples you can try on. She blends her experience as Midwife, Midwifery Teacher, Ayurveda Practitioner, Poet, Maya Abdominal Therapist, Photographer, Meditator, Painter, Mother, and Grandmother into a unique feast to inspire your own inner artist.
Let’s explore together the themes at the heart of midwifery:
- Love & Trust
- Support & Nourishment
- Feeding the Spirit
- Courage & Protection
- Going Inward
- Celebration and
- Letting Go.

About Terra Rafael, Teacher of the Art of Midwifery:
Terra Rafael (formerly Terra Palmarini Richardson) was a home birth midwife in Colorado for about 20 years. Since then she’s practiced Ayurveda with a specialty in Women’s Health. She found herself being assisted by helping spirits while doing Maya Abdominal Therapy and Reiki on women. This led her to pursue deeper work in the world of shamanism for the last 18 years.
