Birth as we know it

Elena Vladimirova TonettiElena Vladimirova Tonetti was a co-founder of the Conscious Birth Movement in Russia in the 1980s that inspired mothers to flock to the Black Sea to give birth in the shallow lagoons with the dolphins. Now living in California, Elena has produced a powerful new- style documentary “Birth As We Know It” featuring rarely discussed sexuality of childbirth, the long-term effects of limbic memory, and the brutality of circumcision, Cesarean birth, ecstatic birthing using higher frequency energies. Newly available is a 40 minute documentary as well as extensive footage in a 31/2 hour “Birth As We Know It” DVD. The images are unforgettable and suggest a new standard for the ultimate human birth.

BEPE presents: The Business of Being Born


William EmersonBEPE Presented William R. Emerson, Ph.D
May 15 2009: The Long Term Effects of Birth on Babies, Mothers, and Fathers.


Included in a free talk and an all day workshop: The ways in which birth affects children and parents in negative ways, until informed. Attendees learned to discern if they or their babies and children have unresolved birth trauma or birth ecstasy. Gaining understanding of this subtle but powerful life dynamic can change and affect one’s personal, professional, and/or spiritual lives.

Dr. Emerson is an international authority on diagnosing and treating children and adults suffering from birth trauma; he created a therapy to treat even small babies for trauma. William directs Emerson Training Seminars in the US, Mexico, Canada, and Europe where he teaches these methods to fellow professionals. He is a prolific writer, creator of teaching videos, and has held teaching positions at several Universities, after earning graduate degrees from Vanderbilt and San Jose State Universities. He is currently providing outstanding service to APPPAH as Co-President with responsibility for regional and international congresses. BEPE is delighted to host Dr. Emerson for this special weekend in the Foothills.
