honor your desire for a vibrant experience

witness birth :: release grief :: shift death

::  Birth, Grief & Death are Points of Light  ::

Life transitions are precious and powerful Points of Light, moments of shifting.  They are rich with the love hormone oxytocin, and ignite a capacity for transformation within our selves, families, and communities.

These moments also facilitate social shifting.

By design these experiences have tremendous capacity to crack us wide open emotionally and serve as rights of passage that take us by storm, rock us to our core, and shake loose the very foundation from which we have learned to rely on for years or sometimes decades.

There is potency in learning to draw-up power and liberation by leaning-in to uncomfortable feelings.  When you mine your unique gems, bring them to the surface, and let them guide you on the next leg of your journey--whether that be as a new parent, someone who emerges from the depths of grief, or a person crossing into a new role as an ancestor-- you have more capacity to shift frameworks.

The heart and soul of engaging Points of Light is learning how to let go and be open to vulnerability.

What are you ready to let go of as you approach the door?  What strengths do you need to call upon to lean into the wild unknown and walk through that door with curiosity, joy, and reverence for the trek?

Together let's discover what it will take to get you to the other side of the mountain.

Hi there, Luna here!

Transitionary experiences have cracked me open time and time again, bearing a thunder in my heart so loud it became impossible to ignore: "Be vulnerable.  Let go.  Fail and try again.  Always center authenticity."  And so began the most potent work of my life: weaving together experiences as seemingly distant from one another as birth, grief and death.  These rights of passage are points of light living on the same spectrum, intimately woven together.  They call us to listen, mine their lessons, and journey up the trail until we make it to our new normal on the other side of the mountain.

Do you seek meaningful experience when entering the territory of the great unknown--birth, grief, death?  My clients do.

Stress, anxiety, and trauma abound in our lived experiences.  Our response?  Being highly productive or down and out.  The expense?  Loss of deeply meaningful connection.  Scratch the surface: stress, anxiety, and trauma over-fire alarm bells in our brain while also pulling at our heart strings.  My own expriences being stigmatized greatly impacted my willingness to be vulnerable.  The outcome:  Self sensorship and diminished capacity for transformation.  But then a great thing happened.  I decided to turn up the volume of my unsensored inner knowing.  There a potent undercurrent called on me to stay aligned with my authentic self even when the great mystery and uncertainty of birth, grief, and death were unfolding.  Feeling safe and fully supported directly relate to my willingness and ability to be vulnerable and bring forth the most potent version of myself to the foreground.

 

Over and over I have been called-in to lean toward and surrender to the greater "what is" of this precious thing we call life, and I adore supporting folks as they trasverse through the points of light.  Honoring opportunities to ground, shift, let go, and transform, bring forth the ever potent life force that is you.  As a life passage doula, I am wholly committed to walking this road beside you whether that be in birth, grief, or death.

 

Straight from my heart to yours,

K. Luna Lea

Luna spends time with my husband (living with Alzheimer's) regularly.  I worry a lot, and when she is with him, that is when I don't worry.  He loves spending time with her.  She is open-hearted, treats him with dignity, and they get out of the house and outside consistently.  As a bonus, when I come home from work, dinner is ready to be finished off, and the dishwasher gets mysteriously filled or emptied.  We both feel lucky to be Luna's clients.

-Kat C

Luna was an incredible partner and especially helpful in providing information and clarifying options when we had to navigate more difficult decisions.

--LM

Luna offered wise reminders and witnessed me in my strength and believed in my Warrior Mama spirit--showing so much respect and empathy.  My heart is happy to know Luna is in my community supporting families before, during and after the intensity of birth.

--MZ

Luna brought great perspective to the table and really helped me prepare for bringing my babe into the world.

--BK

Luna's advice throughout all these months made me feel prepared and confident.

--AH

Luna stepped in when our trusted support withdrew from us in our time of need.  Luna got to know us and made us more comfortable with ourselves and each other.  I appreciate how you were there for both and all of us.

--JC

We recently had a family gathering in our home to try and get care coordinated for my husband.  It was a meeting that I dreaded, filled with people who love the same person, but have difficulty communicating.  With Luna's facilitation, she kept us on track, held us to the time I had allocated, and steadfastly got to some points of agreement.  Having her there to facilitate gave me the courage I needed to get through the meeting.

-Kat C

It was comforting to have Luna as part of the process and be able to talk through the last stages of pregnancy.  Also, to help further process our feelings about our first experience!  Thank you Luna for being on call so quickly for another rapid birth!

--SO

This was our third baby and our first time using a doula.  Luna helped me to process our previous birth experiences and really helped me to hone in on and actualize my desires for this birth.  Luna is warm as well as knowledgable, and had a wealth of resources for anything I sought support for.

 

--MS

Luna stayed with us through the labor to postpartum transition, which I was nervous about.  She helped to make our postpartum room a sanctuary.  This effort helped me to feel cared for and comfortable in our space so that I could focus on resting and bonding as a family across the first couple of postpartum days in the hospital before going home.

--MS

Luna offered a warm, grounding, and heart-filled presence every step of the way.  We are so grateful she was part of our birth experience!

 

--C&HW

Luna provided a wealth of knowledge, gentle advice, and unwavering support through the third trimester and during our postpartum months.  Luna helped us navigate a number of issues during those chaotic, but precious, months...she even helped us find a nanny!  It was great to have someone--other than our medical care provider--whom we could turn to whenever we had questions or concerns.  I would, without hesitation, recommend Luna to anybody thinking about hiring a doula.

 

--JF

During 24+ hours of labor, Luna was a grounding and encouraging presence.  I honestly wouldn't have been able to make it as far as I did without her gentle reminders and suggestions.  And during the early postpartum period, she was there with validation and witnessing--she even saved me from an awful plugged duct by suggesting resources.  It makes me so happy to know Luna is providing doula support in our community!

 

--MZ

 I appreciated Luna's expertise, insight, and gentle, caring nature through out our prenatal visits, laborite, and postpartum visits.  We would recommend Luna to any family looking for support in their childbirth journey.

In modern society, so many are disconnected from experiencing the power of life's most intense thresholds, the power of birth and death.  So many women never witness childbirth until it is directly upon them, until they themselves are in labor.  Death, like birth, is often cornered off into anonymous hospital rooms.  And yet much wisdom exists in witnessing the transformative energies present in these thresholds.  Much wisdom exists in holding space as the generations move through time.
