RIE can be shortly described as "Parenting with Awareness" or "Art of Aware Parenting". It is a simple and revolutionary at the same time way of SEEING, APPROACHING and BEING with children of all ages, and particularly infants and young toddlers.

During those classes, children in the same developmental stage are gathered together and allowed to explore free in a safe, specifically designed environment, with an open-ended objects and various structures allowing them to develop their fine and gross motor skills, their awareness of self and others without being unnecessarily guided or interrupted.

Parents get to quietly observe their children and learn not to intervene. That builds parents' confidence in their supportive role and their trust in their child's abilities. The RIE facilitator is assuring children's safety.

At the beginning and end of each sessions, we allow time for discussion.

Topics for discussion often include:

  • Age-appropriate expectations
  • Reading your baby’s cues and signals and how best to respond
  • The importance of play in children’s learning
  • Fostering pro-social, physical and intellectual development and discipline based on your baby’s readiness
  • Balancing parents’ and children’s needs and wants
  • How you can help your child develop an innate self of worth and confidence
  • Establishing clear, consistent, and appropriate limits
  • Setting up a child-development conducive environment
  • Adapting the home environment as baby grows
  • Integrating RIE principles into everyday life in and out of the home

Typical session flow:

MICROBIRTH FILM SCREENING & LIVE PANEL DISCUSSION WITH Q&A

6:00 PM18:00

MICROBIRTH FILM SCREENING & LIVE PANEL DISCUSSION WITH Q&A

Have you seen the movie yet? Have you heard about microbiome before?
Regardless whether you're expecting, have a child or not, this movie is for everyone.

Dr. Eden Fromberg has an extensive knowledge about human's microbiome. After the screening, she will speak about obstetrical and childbirth practices and considerations for establishing the infant's microbiome and immune system, in addition to speaking publicly for the first time about her own personal experiences using fecal microbiota transplants and probiotic foods to heal her gut and immune system. More about Dr . Fromberg, click here.

Hannah Springer, the founder of Oliver Weston Company will talk about her passion for traditional foods and share her knowledge of their preparation methods.

Marcy Tardio, certified nurse-midwife in her 25th year as a midwife will share her knowledge about labor and birth and her extensive experience of working with expectant parents.

MicrobirthscreeningLila

MicroBirth is a new feature-length documentary looking at birth in a whole new way; through the lens of a microscope. The film investigates the latest scientific research that is starting to link the way babies are born with health in later life, particularly the increased risk of children developing certain immune-related conditions, including asthma, type 1 diabetes, celiac (coeliac) disease, obesity, cardio-vascular diseases, mental health disorders and even some cancers.


The movie emphasizes the importance of “seeding the baby’s microbiome” at birth with the mother’s own bacteria – this bacteria helps train the immune system to recognize what is “friend” and what is “foe”. In the scientists’ view, if we can get the seeding of the baby’s microbiome right at birth, this could make a massive difference to the baby’s health for the rest of its life.

BioGeometry: A Natural Energy Solution for Modern Problems

BioGeometry: A Natural Energy Solution for Modern Problems

In a perfectly balanced world, the earth, our homes, work environments and our bodies would maintain a proper energy-quality identity, and the correct balance of polarity. Unfortunately, we do not live in a balanced world. The electricity that powers our increasingly “wired” planet and the rapid spread of cell towers, WiFi and other modern technological and architectural conveniences, have created energy interactions that disturb and create imbalances in the environment and our bodies. The effects are subtle, but noticeable. In fact, many of our modern diseases and energy imbalances can be traced back to the effects of these energy disturbances.

EMF

BioGeometry offers solutions that create harmony and balance.

Join Jean Chuang Menges, as she explores and discusses the role of natural energy systems, the negative effects of electricity and other energy stressors, and how the principles of BioGeometry are being used to effect change in architecture, telecom networks, industrial design, and health systems. She will also demonstrate how we can use the principles and solutions of BioGeometry in our daily lives.

Thermography is an excellent assessment tool to add to your self care program. Thermography can detect what you may not yet feel. It is a way to see hidden inflammation that may be affecting your health. Your body is designed with flow systems. If these flow systems are stagnant or impeded in any way disease is sure to follow. Come and learn about your body, your flow systems and how thermography can be a wonderful screening tool for your health preventive care program.

NEW DOCUMENTARY "MICROBIRTH" REVEALS THE MICROSCOPIC SECRETS OF CHILDBIRTH

The way we give birth has changed dramatically over the past 30 years. Some leading scientists are warning that these changes could have serious repercussions for the lifelong health of our children.

Featuring prominent scientists from the UK and North America, "Microbirth" examines how modern birth practices could be interfering with critical biological processes potentially making our children more susceptible to disease later in life.
Recent population studies have shown babies born by Caesarean Section have approximately a 20% increased risk of developing asthma, 20% increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes, a similar risk with obesity and slightly smaller increases with gastro-intestinal conditions like Crohn's disease or celiac disease. These conditions are all linked to the immune system.

"Microbirth" explores several possible explanations. If a baby is born by Caesarean Section, scientists hypothesise this could alter the "seeding" of the baby's microbiome, the critical transfer of good bacteria from mother to baby at birth. Scientists suggest this could lead to the baby's immune system not developing to its full potential. Another hypothesis is the actual process of vaginal birth, including the cocktail of hormones produced during labour, could profoundly affect the baby's immune regulation and metabolism.

The film raises awareness of the potential importance of "seeding" the microbiome for all babies, whether born naturally or by C-section. This is an issue not just for parents and health professionals, but also for all our world leaders. For surely now is the time for childbirth to be the focus of serious, urgent attention at the highest level?"
