Retreats

“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.” 
– Albert Camus

We host several retreats that delve into the heart and soul of being a doula. We believe that it is essential to take time out from our everyday lives to retreat away from and to retreat within to do the deep work that will help you to meet your inner doula. Each area of life that we are called to serve is a new transition. Each transition is called forth by blood. Blood flows throughout our lives, in many different ways and we at Sacred Space Doulas acknowledge and honour this flow in our teachings.

Our retreats are held in English and there is Finnish language support in each workshop for those Finns that feel they may want some help with fully understanding the concepts. Perfect English is not a requirement but passable knowledge and ability to communicate simply is needed. All home-studies and exams can be written in English, Finnish, Russian, Swedish or Italian.
