About this Workshop Series
Drag to resize
Drag to resize
The idea that birth integration can repair early imprints and deepen connection with our original blueprint, is foundational to the work of Ray Castellino and other experts in the field of Pre- and Perinatal Psychology.

What if death is yet another birth, and by intentionally preparing for it we can embody our original blueprint, as we dis-embody?

This 4 week mini-series will touch on many ways PPN concepts apply across the spectrum of birth and death, including:

  • the 8 Castellino Principles;
  • Layers of Support;
  • Co-Regulation; and
  • Self-Regulation.

Weaving personal stories as a birth and death midwife, including Moriah’s experience supporting Ray and his family during his final weeks, this presentation will also highlight information housed within her forthcoming book “How to Show Up for the Dying and Their Loved Ones: What to Do, What to Say."

Moriah Melin

Every day Moriah is humbled by parenthood, partnership, physical health, and the ways she witnesses those around her rise to their own challenges. She sees and feels in herself and others the beauty, pain, sacrifice, surrender and innate desires for love and connection. While she continues to integrate these places within herself and her family, it is her honor to also support others on their personal journeys toward optimal health.

Moriah Melin RM, CPM has been supporting families in childbirth since 1996, and became licensed as a midwife in 2011. She is currently licensed in Colorado and registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland. She has two beautiful children who were born at home, and she carries the sacred wisdom of birth not only in her heart and hands, but deep in her bones. In 2017 Moriah was called into the field of death midwifery. It is her great honor to hold families and individuals at both ends of the rainbow bridge.

Moriah is personally and professionally passionate about the field of Pre- and Perinatal Psychology (PPN), and has woven it into her birth and death midwifery practice. She is currently writing a book titled “How to Show Up for the Dying and Their Loved Ones: What to Do, What to Say”. Often people want to help but don’t know how when a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness. With tips and tools this book clearly outlines simple and practical ways busy people can show up and make a difference. Her next book “The Rainbow Bridge Continuum: Birth, Life and Death Through the Pre- and Perinatal Perspective”, will highlight benefits of PPN in preparation for birth and death.
