I am writing on the behalf of an amazing project, the Da-a-Luz midwifery school, based in Spain.
We hold alternative midwifery apprenticeships and classes led by experienced teachers from across the world here at our school that has been running for more than 15 years already. We are about one quarter of the way through the build job and are around €20,000 in wages and material costs from completing our beautifully sculpted birthing temple... And we really can't wait any longer, there is a strong sense within the community that this project should be completed by the end of 2015, with a little help!!
You can find all of the information about us on our IndieGogo campaign:
"DA-A-LUZ is creating Europe's first holistic midwifery
school in a picturesque valley of the Alpujarras............
Seventeen years of midwifery practice and many summers chatting to
student midwives have led me to believe there are glaring gaps of
necessary knowledge in present midwifery training.
I am proud to be part of this new project that will train with-women
midwives in traditional skills and support newly trained midwives who
before felt unprepared.
We will hold a space for the brave midwives previously persecuted around the globe
to share their infinite wisdom.
Our school will be in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains,
The fertile land is abundant with oranges, lemons, almonds and olives.
Year round sunshine and gushing water from the 100 year old irrigation
system enable us to grow food. We will take studies back to a basic
wisdom. Living on the land, nurtured and inspired students and teachers
will flourish from the earth up.
We have gathered the sharpest, most passionate minds in midwifery to
create a centre of wisdom away from modern medicine, protocol and
insurance issues which stop true midwifery from flourishing as a profession.
Rather than fighting a non functioning system, we are creating a new
paradigm........ Starting afresh."
