Our ancestors revered the sacred link between the fertility of woman and the fertility of Mother Earth, but today we have lost this connection. After discovering instances of rampant censorship in modern American books on childbirth, Dr Sharashkin set out on a quest to reclaim the ancient truth about this key life experience. Drawing on his personal experiences of assisting with the birth of his many children, his apprenticeship with prominent midwives, and remarkable mastery of scientific knowledge in the fields as diverse as biology and linguistics, history and psychology, gardening and obstetrics, Dr Leo was able to reconstruct the mystery of the Eternal Cycle, and the central place of our thought in it.
He now starts to put forth simple practical suggestions for making the birth the life-changing, transformative experience for the entire family and, indeed, for our whole planet.
