The pelvis is viewed as the center of the bodily universe in many systems. This workshop will orient participants to the physical, energetic, emotional, and Spirit level processes of the womb. In this workshop we will cover and practice :
– practical and tangible self care tools / education (including cycle tracking, vaginal steaming, self massage practices for breast and pelvic health, hormones, fertility, healing around medical procedures and releasing cellular memory from the pelvis)
– visualization and clothed self-self contact with the womb
– the neurobiology of the pelvis including the pelvic nerve, spine, complexity & nuances of the female reproductive system
– creative expression and manifestation on the bodily level
– Spirit process work grounded in the physical container

Alicia’s approach with pelvic care is inspired by multiple personal inquiries and experiences including Holistic Pelvic Care (TM), the women at the Red School, trauma-informed care, physics & the science of energy, sacred sexuality, the Qi-gong & Chakra energy medicine systems, the organ energy system, and myofascial work. Working with me includes witnessing and mentorship around the possibility of a sacred relationship to these bodies that are cyclical.
Alicia’s intention is to provide a respectful and healing space for all bodies. Holistic Pelvic Care was developed for bodies with female anatomy but can be of benefit across all identities. If you are in a body with female genitalia but do not identify as a woman, please know you are welcome. If you are curious but hesitant, please write to Alicia for more dialogue and questions / clarification.
Pelvic trauma is any event that causes a prolonged disruption between a person and their center or root that does not allow for reconnection and resolution. This can be an overwhelming experience (energetically, emotionally, physically) and often involves a threat to existence (to their own body, their provider, or their child). This results in disruption: energetic, emotional, physical. This preserves survival in the moment but lingers as unresolved / stuck in the body pattern. Every person has probably experienced some realm of pelvic trauma and this practice provides a respectful healing space for trauma resolution. Pelvic trauma can range from abuse / assault, a motor vehicle accident, physical injury such as falling on the tailbone, extreme athletic competition, abortion, circumcision, abuse patterns or pelvic trauma in the lineage, late term loss or loss in childbirth, delivery complications, medical procedures, gender wounds, infertility, major accidents and injuries, miscarriage, adoption, early life events, childbirth, and more.
ENERGY AND FEELING WORK
All emotional and spiritual experiences associated with safety, trust, survival, sex, birth, death, intimacy, ancestral content, pelvic trauma, loss, medical procedures, womb loss, relationships, creativity, self-respect, personal & relational power, and embodiment can be addressed. Difficulties with brain-related challenges such as depression and anxiety can also be addressed here as numerous holistic medicine systems see brain-related issues as an imbalance with the root / base of the body. The Chinese medicine system refers to the root (pelvic tissue) as the foundational “burner” (energy center) of the body. If the foundational burner is not open, clear, aligned & vital there can be a drain on the entire system and spirit. This realm of pelvic work intends to restore all vitality to the root of the body.
