About the Program
Soul Midwifery Clinical Training
Shakti Rising is offering an intensive nine-month clinical training program for therapists, counselors, healers and other helping professionals. We call our counselors Soul Midwives because we facilitate transformative space for women to uncover their soul or true essence and this process is akin to birth; natural, wild and primal. Living from one’s truest self is an essential part of freedom in this culture; both a personal and radical political act.
In essence, Soul Midwifery is a clinical training in Shakti Rising’s counseling model. It incorporates key aspects of our theories and praxis with a focus on transpersonal modalities, ritual and ceremony, indigenous healing practices, energy work, spiritual and other “alternative” healing arts from the feminine ground of being.
The three strands of this program occur simultaneously:
Personal Support: Guidance and space for your own healing and growth as a woman and healing artist.
Praxis: Three residential immersion trainings that occur in fall, winter and spring blending a deep dive into embodied exploration of seasonally based themes with applied practice of staffing a retreat for young women in recovery.
Training: Online clinical education, training and supervision. Our learning community blends peer to peer and group work, readings, assignments, case studies, reflections on applied practice, personal growth and dynamics among the cohort. We use examples, questions and cases to support implementation of the seasonal topics.
This intensive clinical training will prepare you to steward the sacred art of midwifing souls. Equipped with trauma informed treatment practices, therapy modalities, intensive training in our signature Shakti Rising model as well as courses for your own personal transformation.
