Learn and Grow Within Our Beautiful Village!

theVillage was born from our desire to help women and families connect with each other.

Within theVillage, women teach women and share their wisdom to help others in their journey — through menarche, adolescence, childbearing, parenting, and mid-life. Here, you will find a place, where together, we rediscover the art of pregnancy and birth and the magic healing power of our physical body. theVillage started with the Birth Circle, a women’s only group that meets monthly to discuss topics related to pregnancy, birth and postpartum. It has grown into a dynamic community gathering place with classes, seminars, and groups. theVillage is at the heart of what we do with women. It is written into our vision statement, our mission, our core values, and our value proposition that:

To strengthen our communities and decrease isolation and depletion, we, as a collective, must weave a pattern of interconnectedness among each other; a connectedness that is able to carry us when we can no longer do it alone, guide us when we are seeking direction and celebrate with us when we achieve our dreams.

sometimes our littlest community members do the best clean up!

You do not have to be a client of Healing Passages Birth & Wellness Center to access theVillage!
