I’d have to say that the reason I decided to take Sacred Childbirth with Reiki Training is synchronicity. It began when I was browsing through a Reiki Magazine and noticed the ad. Almost immediately I thought, “it would be nice if the course was offered in Vancouver”. Three months later, I couldn’t believe it when I saw this course being offered in Vancouver Island! Of course, I signed up and attended the course with four other wonderful women.
The course was very intense but it helped me remove a lot of emotional blockages. I have four children – two of them were hospital births with nurses/doctors, one in a hospital with a midwife, and my youngest was born on the back seat of my car with my midwife (at a hospital parking-lot). I had a lot of traumas and fears associated with their birth. By the end of last day of the course, I was able to have all my birth stories reviewed and released negative emotions with the help of my classmates. I even re-patterned my own birth!
I remember feeling empowered and joyous, with a sense of serenity and clarity by the end of training. The best thing is the improved relationships with my children. By clearing the negative emotions with the birth experiences, the tension in the relationships somehow just dissolved away…
Another big change in my life is related to my work. In the past year, I had been working at a healing centre. After finishing this course I had a strong urge to terminate my work there and open my home practice. So I did and I am in the process of creating a Reiki Room now.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to participate in this course! I feel I was re-birthed (the way I want) to the world and am ready for my new beginning of my life-journey.
Thank you Cori for creating this wonderful course!

There is no mistake if you’re looking at Sacred Childbirth, there is a reason. For me it was a journey to self-healing in the simple fact hidden from women that birth is not painful because one’s own body knows what to do. Thus birth can be joyous and even pleasurable. I enjoyed this class and how is showed me how to connect to my body’s wisdom.

Birth can be a wonderful, peaceful, loving experience without pain and with insight that will last a lifetime; for the mother and child.

What a powerful week-end! Cori is a wonderfully intuitive teacher/leader who allowed space to grasp the bones and internalize the concepts allowing us to walk away with a powerful tool.

Incredible! I will carry this experience with me for the rest of my life. Sacred Childbirth with Reiki has transformed me on many levels-personally, spiritually, and professionally. I am deeply grateful to Cori and this entire process.
– Natasha H., Lancaster, PA
A gentle and yet powerful experience…. What a rich technique for expanding the possibilities of bringing to birth – whether an actual impending birth of an infant, birthing our dreams, or experiencing our own births. Thank you.
– Sarah P., Lancaster, PA
Baby and I are wonderful! I’m days away from my 3rd trimester and getting more and more excited every day. Since the training I’ve had several dreams and visions while meditating of my labor and birth and I’ll say not a single one was scary or painful and I’m beyond confident that it has more to do with going through the class than anything. I feel armed with the right kind of information and tools to make this an amazing and peaceful experience for me and my daughter. I’m also excited to be able to help other soon-to-be moms.

My experience this week-end will remain with me for years to come as I continue to share the gift of Reiki with others. The training was powerful with growth occurring deeply within me. I look forward with great anticipation to give mothers, fathers-to-be, and their babies gentle, peaceful tools for birthing. This was where Spirit wanted me to be this week-end.
– Sherry S., Winneconne, WI
What an amazing experience! My life has been changed. This is much more than having a peaceful childbirth. As you are learning and sharing you are releasing so that you can help yourself and others. So many part of this week-end must be experienced for yourself. Can not describe!

For me, the course with Cori was powerful, insightful, inspiring, and surprising. The sessions took me to deep places that helped me release blocks from my past I did not know existed. Cori’s presence and confidence in teaching by example gave me a strong model to inspire my sessions I facilitate with confidence. This work reinforces my belief of the profound and lasting nature that the birth experience has on every individual, and I am thrilled to be using Reiki to help reclaim the sacredness and empowerment both men and women deserve from this peak experience. I am grateful for the time I had in workshop with you, I learned and grew much, and the work that you’re doing on the planet at this time. I know this path will continue to grow and support you and your family as you let go of teaching and step more fully into your true purpose with this SCBWR work.

I found the training to be very helpful. The relaxation and positive suggestions a mom receives can only help with her birthing. The Sacred Childbirth with Reiki scripts are a wonderful tool in addition to any a doula, massage therapist, nurse or midwife may already have.
Reiki and childbirth, what perfect combination!
After attending over one hundred births as a Doula I had no idea that I still held negative emotions about the way I was treated during my labor. Releasing the negativity I had carried from the birth of my own child was short and painful, but the end result is great! I feel as though a weight has been lifted from me.
Thank you for bringing this to women Cori.

What a wonderful journey this has been. To be able to reach deep down and clear out so many hidden things with our coaching is a true gift from the Universe. I knew I had issues to clear out before I could continue on my journey and share my gifts with others and Sacred Childbirth with Reiki is the gift the Universe gave me. Thank you for listening to the Divine and birthing your Dream Baby and including me in that dream. This is absolutely a life changing experience. The work completed in the class helps to complete me. It will be impossible to stay the same person.
You can’t possibly know how grateful I am. Its not possible to it into words.

Upon seeing the advertisement for Sacred Childbirth With Reiki in the Reiki News magazine, I just “knew” I had to embark on the journey this course offers. Currently, I’m pursuing certification as a labor and delivery doula and knew I wanted to integrate Reiki into the process. Cori’s course is the perfect “piece to the puzzle” so to speak. The class experience has been invaluable to me in preparation for encouraging and supporting women and families during their pregnancy and birthing experiences. The loving support of Cori and the other women who participated in the class when we were practicing with one another was such a blessing, and the process itself is a very powerful, life-changing and enhancing experience. I can’t say enough about how important it is that we all support, love and encourage each other and this course encourages us to be so.
Childbirth is meant to be a sacred experience, and Sacred Childbirth with Reiki encourages that process through such great love and support to both mothers, partners and participants in the pregnancy and birthing process. Thank you from my heart to Cori and my classmates.

The instructor training for Sacred Childbirth with Reiki was one of the most profound experiences of my life. Even though my children are parents themselves, the re-experiencing of my pregnancies and births brought up issues I was not even fully aware existed for me. Under Cori’s skillful direction, I was able to relive these landmarks of my life without the pain and in full recognition of the issues that had developed around the traumas of the initial events. Cori guided me through the emotion of releasing these traumas and resolution of significant blocks these feelings had created in my life. I am profoundly affected by the experience of this training and look forward to being able to assist others, both women and men, in clearing the fears and pain related to their own births and/or pregnancies they have experienced.

During the Sacred Childbirth with Reiki training process, I was able to identify and release deep seeded traumas that centered around birth and fertility. This process allowed me the opening to completely uncover the hidden obstacles that I have held in my body for over 20 years. I would recommend this training for anyone who wants to take their practice to a new level and particularly those practitioners working with women who are trying to conceive or have a trauma-free birthing experience.

I would call this wonderful weekend of training Alpha-Omega as it was both a beginning and an end for me. The Omega: This was met through experiencing my own birth during which I released my own feeling of an empty womb due to not being able to bare children. The Alpha: Now that I’m a Sacred Childbirth with Reiki Practitioner it has “birthed”, if you will, a path that is taking me on a most fantastic journey helping mothers have their dream births. Thank you, Cori, for giving me this opportunity.

Since coming to know Reiki, I have thought it would be a wonderful tool to have in the delivery room. To support mom thru the contractions and delivery; then to greet baby as they emerged into the world. Cori’s process takes it so much further. To use Reiki energy to clear memories, expectations and traumas around previous births and the birth process and to install proactive power and choice is truly paradigm changing.
My experience in the Sacred Childbirth with Reiki Practitioner Training was life changing. I discovered things that I had been carrying with me for most of my life. I was able to recognize and release hurts, angers and disempowerments that had been held in my body since giving birth to my children 21 and 26 years ago. Re-birthing myself was nothing short of miraculous. I felt connected to the Universe in a way I would not have believed possible. I emerged with the true knowing that I chose to be here. I wanted to come. I am safe and loved. Thank you Cori for being the vessal that this work came through. As women are more able to be present for the actual miracle of our bodies, of what we are built to powerfully do and allow, the more we will be able to step into, know and own our experience. Thereby empowering us to raise our beautiful children in this same knowing and empowering men to know that birth is a beautiful, natural event to be celebrated and revered. This is truly Sacred.

Working as a Reiki healer at a fertility clinic I was drawn to this training hoping that it would offer me valuable tools to support my clients. It was exactly what I hoped for and so much more. The tools, resources, and hands on experience were invaluable. On a personal level I healed and transformed at a level of depth that I have rarely experienced before. I am so grateful to Cori for creating and sharing this powerful and beautiful process.
– Lisa E. – Chicago, IL
I received many sacred gifts while participating in your workshop. I am so grateful to have taken this training. The work we did enabled me to resolve any personal birth issues so that I can now be more empowered to do this work with other women, maximizing their potential for a positive birth experience!
Thank you so much, Cori!

A woman holds within every cell her body the experience of pregnancy and birth. She has the experience within her DNA and carries it in her dreams. We as practitioners for Sacred Childbirth with Reiki can facilitate in the healing and release of trauma surrounding this sacred experience, s well as aiding in the preparation for new birth experience with breathing and visualization techniques. The training process is so calm and peaceful, as well as healing for the participants. I have been so blessed to be able to be a part of such a wonderful class and now as a practitioner can aide my daughter and son-in-law in the birth of my first grandchild. The sessions with my daughter have been life-changing. The universe has aligned this process to perfection and for that I am so grateful. If this is calling you….listen to the whisper in your soul. Namaste.
