I’m so thrilled you’re here scoping out my sacred little space on the inter webs. I’m Erin Black. I was born under a full moon on November 20th 1983 in the sleepy coastal town of Denmark, Western Australia.
Growing up a highly sensitive child and picking up on ALL the energies, I felt an overwhelming urge to make sure everyone and everything was OK. As I got older this morphed into a strong pull to facilitate connection and spread peace and compassion, I just wasn’t sure in what capacity.
Falling pregnant in 2012 saw my life catapulted on a whole new trajectory. I found myself inhaling any and all information I could find on pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, parenthood, women’s mysteries and the sacred feminine – I had come home.
After giving birth I quickly realised just how VITALLY important it is to not only nurture your child, but to deeply nurture yourself.
Finding my circle of women to journey alongside, share experiences with and support and love one another has been an essential piece in the puzzle of my adventure. I feel so blessed to have these women in my life as we continue to grow and learn together.
I feel very fortunate to be able to combine my passions for pregnancy, birth, parenthood and the Wise Woman Wisdom with my desire to care for and nurture others.
I support women and birthing people and their families on their individual journeys – whether that’s through my doula, childbirth education and placenta encapsulation work, or through bringing people together to weave a web of celebration and support at Goddess Gatherings or in the Rhythm & Flow online circle membership.
I am an eternal student obsessed with the body/mind/spirit connection. Talk to me about brain waves, the nervous system, our unique quantum signature, placentas, menstruation, ancestral wisdom or mangoes and you’ll have my undivided attention. I live to honour significant life events, rites of passage and transitions. I love living in sync with, connecting to and honouring the cyclic nature of all things. I love swimming in the sunshine, frozen grapes, creating, bare feet and uncontrollable belly laughs. I love questioning the status quo and I am addicted to yoga nidra and embodied yin. I love good food and good wine, pilates, gardening, togetherness, yoga, meditation, diving, travel, massages and dark chocolate! Alone time and adventures float my boat in equal measures. I love tropical everything, warm cups of tea, delightful smells, nature, fires and hot baths in winter, dancing, singing, family time, smelling my children’s heads and of course; long walks along the beach at sunset… I’ll meet you in the liminal space!
No one can pour from an empty cup. You must do things for YOU
I look forward to hearing from you X
