The benefits of the retreat  :


This retreat is a real gift for everyone who was born into less than blissful circumstances and now wants to change the way it is affecting them in the Present & better thrive in your life.

It is particularly helpful if you wish :


  • to consciously conceive, consciously live your pregnancy and have a conscious blissful birth,
  • overcome conception difficulties,
  • recover & free yourself & your baby after a traumatic birth,
  • better thrive in life in general by shifting all conscious & unconscious behavioral patterns rooted in their birth trauma.




The aim of 'Limbic Imprint re-Coding' :


Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova is one of the pioneers in the Birthing Field of Conscious Procreation, whom started both her work & researches in 1982, about ecstatic birth and correlation between birth trauma and the quality of our life.


‘Limbic Imprint Re-Coding’ retreats, are focused on the conscious creation of a new humanity – re-designing, re-navigating, clearing the pathways from the debris of the past trauma and out-dated behavioral patterns, so our true fundamental core experience of living in the body could be based on love, compassion and common sense. Whether we are wishing or trying to conceive, pregnant, birthing babies, becoming parents or willing to manifest any of your dream projects, including your own upgraded versions of yourselves, we must first create new reference points in your own nervous system in order for you to know what it really feels like - to love, to feel safe, be supported in this world.


Elena's work is designed as a very graceful shortcut to recovering of our deep sense of self and desire to fully manifest ourselves & our heart-based wishes.

Birthshops are for anyone who was born into less than blissful circumstances and now wants to change the way it is affecting them in the Present.

It is not only for women having difficulties to conceive or willing to consciously concieve & birth, or mum after a traumatic birth, but for everyone interested in shifting their behavioral patterns, rooted in their birth trauma.

Freeing yourself as parents or future parents from such imprints is of course a wonderful present both to yourselves as well as to your existing and coming baby, for each and all to better thrive in life, and a marvelous way to offer yourself the conscious gentle & blissful conception, pregnancy and birth you desire.



The Retreat - Workshop :


Twenty-five years of thorough research in the field of pre-natal psychology show a direct correlation between the way we were born and our subconscious behavioral and emotional patterns - defining the quality of our experience of being in the body throughout our entire life. We come into this world wide-open to receive love. When we receive it as our first primal experience, our nervous system is "limbically imprinted", programmed with the undeniable rightness of being. Being held in mother's loving arms, seeing the great joy in father's eyes, provides us with the natural sense of bliss and security; it sets the world as the right place for us to be in. But if our first impressions of being in our body are anything less than loving, then that "anything" imprints in our system as a valid experience of love!

It is immediately coded into our nervous system as a "comfort zone," acting as a surrogate for true love and nurturing, regardless how painful it actually was. Statistically, 95% of births in the USA are rated as "traumatic". As adults, we unconsciously re-create the conditions that were imprinted at birth.

But it turns out it's not very difficult to create a brand new Limbic Imprint. Instead of trying to fix the old "programming" (by re-living the initial shock of being born), it's most effective to just acquire a whole new vivid, rich, wonderful and sweet birth experience! Birthshop participants can have an actual in-the-body experience of being conceived, gestated and born in love and natural ecstasy. The Birthshop combines seminar/guided meditation/movement/breathing exercise/role-playing... and it's very entertaining!



Testimonials :


May and Ty, Pregnant Couple, Berkeley, CA:
"Hello family! This is May from the "Birth into Being" workshop in Berkeley in October 2006. I had my baby! And just wanted to share with everyone! I had an incredible, ecstatic, and blissful experience. It was definitely a beautiful blessing. My water broke around 8pm and he slipped right out at 8:58pm! It was very short, pain-free, and just simply one the most beautiful moments in my life. He was born in water, at home in our tub. I want to say thank you to everyone who was there with me at the workshop. I know that it was one of the biggest factors that helped me. Most of all, thank you, Elena!"

Ra-el Corsini, Owner and Artistic Director of The Flying Lotus Movement Center of Mt. Shasta, California, Midwife Assistant (and recovered C-section Mother)
"Elena’s “Birth into Being” workshop moved through every part of my life. It assisted my relationships on all levels. I am now able to recognize the behaviors that are directly linked to my daughter’s c-section birth trauma. Through gentle guidance by Elena, my husband and I have applied techniques that have served tremendously for family harmony. My business has been positively affected as well. By reprogramming my thoughts, and deeply imprinting my subconscious with rebirthing my own birth, I am able to succeed in ways I did not have the confidence to handle before. This workshop is for all, not just the expectant mother. The bonding and peeling away of self is crucial for humanity’s growth and potential. thank you !"
