Closing The Bones Ceremony
Closing The Bones is an ancient ceremony held for a post birth mother to nurture and support her through the rite of passage of motherhood and birth. The ceremony is a celebration of her journey through birthing her baby and an honouring of her body, spirit and the initiation she has been taken through.
Closing the Bones is a tradition from Ecuador, where the postpartum mother is blessed, anointed, massaged and wrapped. There is a calling of her spirit back to herself as she has been a portal for carrying new life – as a birthing woman she has stood before the birth altar and and has walked the threshold between worlds. A transformation has begun as the mother embraces new aspects of herself through this rite of passage into new stages of motherhood. The intention is to provide a space as a nurturing and supportive environment in which healing can take place on these many levels.
Closing the Bones was traditionally offered to women as soon as 6 hours post birth as a ritual to close her physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. This however is not always available for women during the post birth hours so can be taken at any time that serves each women best. Traditionally taken as a ceremony up to 6 times during the first 40 days - the fourth trimester.
Closing The Bones can also be taken as a healing ceremony for women at any stage of their journey through motherhood - one, two or even ten years later.
Women who have experienced miscarriage, still birth, terminations, death of a child also benefit from this healing ceremony.
