A glimpse into a MOTHER BLESSING at eventide

Blessing the Mothers

What is a Mother Blessing?

Borrowed from the Blessingway of the Diné people, the Mother Blessing is an event that uses ceremony and ritual to celebrate a woman's rite of passage into motherhood.  This passage may be her first, or it may one for a subsequent birth since each passage is different.  The Mother Blessing is a way for a woman to prepare for labor spiritually, in whatever manner is meaningful to her.  For some, this will include prayers and songs; for others it will include a fire ceremony, potluck and art.  Each woman requests the activities of her choosing to include in her Mother Blessing.
