About This Event
Join us for a special evening of intergenerational storytelling. CfBS Core Members and Birth Workers Jen Maramba and Vanessa Ramalho welcome Cisa Payuyo who will gather with community to share stories and learnings about the healing capacity of ancestral remembrance in connection with birth. We will invite attendees to listen, engage, ask questions, and share, as well as participate in a collective womb healing ceremony. We invite kapwa of all genders and all experiences to gather with us... no past experience in birth work or having given birth is necessary to join us in in dialogue about the healing capacity of birth and ancestral remembrance, and birth's essential connection to the cycles of life and death.
