    Lots of valuable information

    Published by Meghan Kelley on 23rd Nov 2021

    Another great course by Keli. She addresses the history and culture of vaginal steaming very well. I felt like she addressed how to approach this practice with respect and gave great tools to properly approach and integrate different cultures and traditional ways.

    Vaginal Steaming History and Culture course

    Published by Sama Morningstar on 13th Mar 2021

    This course helped me to understand many aspects of how the history and culture of vaginal steaming might influence how I move forward as a Vaginal Steam facilitator, especially around the issues of cultural appropriation and racism. Thank you Keli for pointing so clearly to pathways to bridge the gaps between us, in devotion to womb wellness for all.

    Something All Practitioners Should Learn

    Published by Lindsay on 4th May 2020

    This course was amazing! I think all vaginal steam facilitators should have this knowledge in order to reflect on their own practices, and also to educate clients who have questions. This is a very comprehensive course about globalization, the rise of western medicine and suppression of folk healing practices, as well as cultural appropriation. I am so grateful for this course!

    A Perspective of Appreciation

    Published by Nadia Fakhoury on 7th Apr 2020

    I loved learning about the history and culture of vaginal steaming and how different factors have contributed to the endangerment of the practice. Learning more about cultural appropriation vs appreciation was a great lesson that of course applies to more aspects than vaginal steaming,

    Thought provoking and essential!

    Published by Adrienne on 15th Dec 2019

    This class is thought provoking and really essential to making sure your business is honoring cultural traditions in a respectful way. It challenges constructs, encourages dynamic conversation and awareness how cultural appropriation can show up in the health and wellness arena.
