Confession and Queen Mary...
Sometimes you need a good knock on the head when going to confession. Today I was reminded of Our Lady Queen to bring all our troubles too. We are in the land of exile - so we should turn towards Mary our Queen to ask her for help. She will help us in our state of life. If you are married, the Sacrament of Matrimony graces are not just for you - they are for the whole family esp. your husband. And the husband's graces are meant for you. So, perhaps you feel that you need some of those extra graces - then pray for your husband (if married).
So, what does this have to do with doula work? Mary is here to help us spiritually as a mother to cover her Mantle over us. She is here to show us the way... as a doula or mother - or whatever we are doing. That's in a way why I called my personal doula site "Our Lady's Mantle doula" - I want to be her handmaid and also she offers the "Mantle of Love" to us. I one time had a dream of Mary covering me with her mantle and today I am reminded that from the fruits you shall know them - today's Gospel (Latin Mass). So, the fruit of our doula work is helping mamas from pregnancy to postpartum. I hope you will find the clients you need for your doulaing. So, we are offering our business class again - you get in at the lower rate if you enroll by August 10th. We will plan at least one time to meetup and maybe more - if I have more students we may meet up 2 times. This will be determined after August 10th. The modules for business will be sent to you right away (and I may upload to the birth shop or email to you). After we gather how many will be in this class, I'll set up time(s) to meetup with the group to discuss the modules a little bit more.
So, here's more information at the Business Page. So, August 10th is not the day we meet - but will just be our early bird deadline on entry to our summer business program. We will decide on meetup within a week after that probably after August 15th. Thank you.
*Note: We will take late entries to the business class - you will be expected to pay slightly more. Thank you.
