The Heal From Within support group provides a holistic approach to pregnancy. Conception is both a mind activity: a notion, an idea, a concept; and a physical activity: the implantation of a fertilized ovum in the womb. Using the mind to influence the body, we weave the fabric of our bodymind back to wholeness, though never truly separated, so that conception can happen in the mind and body.
A recent testimonial:
“I’ve always been skeptical about anything resembling a support group, but I’m so glad I cast the skepticism aside. As anyone going through the IVF/IUI process knows, the process of trying to get pregnant can feel isolating. While friends, families, partners and spouses can be supportive, talking about your hopes, fears and experiences often feels like a burden. By bringing together women going through the same process, Lisa creates a warm, comfortable and comforting space where you can feel free to ask questions, share experiences and, yes, even vent. There is a lot to be learned from others in the same boat. And there is a lot to be learned from Lisa, who will help ground you with some guided meditation and tips to help keep you sane through this difficult journey.” – V.V.
Our workshops are designed to teach skills and behaviors that cultivate intentional engagement with the difficulties of infertility, using the very circumstance as a path to improve general and reproductive health. Through focus on the things that you can control and using tools to cope with the things that you can’t, one becomes more self-empowered.
Fertility Road Support Group
Our monthly drop-in group is open to all women (women only) who are struggling with infertility. Heal from Within has created a space for women to speak openly about their experience: the frustrations, disappointment, heartaches and absurdities, and to hear and process the stories of others. The healing power of stories strengthen the individual and fosters compassionate support within the group.
“I am so glad I have found the Fertility Road support group. It is so nice to be able to come together with other women, in person (not in an anonymous online message board or Facebook group), and share our fertility experiences. Lisa does a lovely job facilitating discussion. The environment is very warm and welcoming, and Lisa encourages us to connect with ourselves and one another. Attending Fertility Road really helps remind me that I’m not alone in my struggles and feelings. Deciding to attend the support group has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself in my journey to become a mother.” – M.L.
