This lineage of women through the jungle medicine has given us the 13th rite of the Munay-Ki: The Rite of the Womb.

Questions & Answers

Why 13th and not 10th?

Before the Rite of the Womb, there were nine Munay-Ki Rites.

Though the rite of the womb is the tenth rite to be given to us, it is a feminine rite and does not need to follow linearity.

The lineage that passed this rite to us wants us to honor the thirteen moons of a year, which are connected to the cycles of the womb.


If I had a hysterectomy can I receive this rite?

If your uterus was removed is even more important that you receive this rite.  Energetically you still have your womb and it is vital that you reconnect with it to reclaim your feminine wisdom and power. After you receive the rite it is fundamental that you nurture it every dark moon to heal any imprints of pain and sorrow and step into joy and compassion.


Can pregnant women receive the rite?

This rite is a blessing for the mother and the baby since it will inform both beings. Nevertheless, it is important to give it with extra gentleness and reverence for life, and also to honor the intuition of the mother to be.


What about men?

All life comes from the womb of the Earth and all men come from a woman’s womb. It is just as important that men become womb keepers, as it is important for women.

The way men are womb keepers is by letting women know that they support their healing journey by becoming stewards of the Earth.
