The spiral labyrinth is found in cultures across the globe. Sacred to the mother goddess, it is both emblematic of birth, the journey to this world - and death, the journey to the underworld.
This collection is dedicated to those who have answered the calling to stand as gatekeepers along the way. For those who stand at the doors. The wise women and traditional midwives who strive to keep ancient birth practices alive in their communities. The doulas - birth, postpartum, full spectrum, death and bereavement - educators, guardians and birth keepers. And finally, to those who help us out, the hospice workers and death doulas who ease our transition.
From our first breath to our last, they wait on the shore and hold space for our journey.
