As I hold the hands of women in labor, watch them open to the challenge and wonder of birth, and offer loving encouragement – my heart is full. Somehow that young girl in Utah found her way to this work. Somehow she found the strength to mentor another in crossing a threshold she once feared.

Join Amy Wright Glenn for an ongoing monthly study circle focused on birth.

Birth Study Circle
Second Saturday of every month 11am-12pm EST
Beginning April 10th, 2021


What does it mean to give birth?
How is birth understood in contemporary society?
How is birth portrayed in the media, in our religious/spiritual institutions?
How do you hold space for the birthing experience in your own heart?

Each month, Amy facilitates an hour long study circle drawing upon:

*Teachings on birth from the world’s wisdom traditions
*Contemporary research in birthing best practice
*News articles relating to birthing people
*Efforts to increase our intuitive and symbolic understanding of birth
*Personal stories/reflections

Each hour-long session is presented live via Zoom. Sessions are not recorded.


All are welcome.



In giving birth to our babies,
we may find that we give birth to new possibilities within ourselves.
