What can I say but FLOCK YEAH! I am so damned excited to get to go back to Vancouver, so grateful and humbled as well. We were JUST there in Delta, B.C.. Thanks for wanting another FLOCK YEAH in your part of the world! Are you new to Flock Yeah? Wanna know what it is?

Flock Yeah SAN DIEGO 2016

Flock Yeah’s were born from a desire to get more of that feeling. The feeling is the one you get when you go to a birth conference, and you had the opportunity to make a new life long friend. That same feeling you have days later because you learned a bunch there. That feeling from maybe having a moment to talk to a speaker you admired. You know that feeling recalling late nights up talking about shared passions? I LOVE all those feelings after a birth conference! What I don’t enjoy is how mind numbing the long days can be, the formality, name tags, trudging from one class to another, trying to choose between hearing one speaker or another. Or how difficult it can be to carve out a moment with someone you admire. So, we took all of our favorite parts of conferences and smooshed ’em together.

Did I mention we were going to have fun? Well we are and I am going to be honest here, I will most likely have the MOST fun! I love our speakers sooo much and so will you!
Wait, want to get more of what that FEELING is?

So back to my guest speakers, well go out ad buy a hat because you are going to want to hold the flock on to it when WHAPIO takes the stage (there will be no stage, this is a figure of speech). This woman blows me a way every freaking time!

Whapio Diane Bartlett
Whapio has been an Independent Midwife for over 30 years, attending women and families in birth and educating women in the Arts of Midwifery and Healing.  She also teaches Homeopathy and is affiliated with HANA (Hahnemann Academy of North America).

Whapio has studied homeopathy and Qigong with Robin Murphy, ND for over 20 years.  She has also studied healing at The Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Beijing Massage Hospital in China.  Whapio is a Community Mediator and counselor for family concerns.  She speaks and writes frequently about Quantuum Midwifery and Returning Birth to the Gena on Whapio: Yes, I know that sounds funny. But I have to say a number of things about her.

#1. Do NOT miss the opportunity to be in this woman’s presence. She will change how you do whatever it is you are doing. She is an elder, a crone, a treasure. Sit at her feet and soak it in.
“Mentoring is an archetypal activity that has timeless elements which can connect us to the universal ground where nature renews itself and culture becomes reimagined. Youth and elder meet where the pressure of the future meets the presence of the past. Old and young are opposites that secretly identify with each other; for neither fits well into the mainstream of life.” -Michael Meade
#2. You will laugh your ass off, Whapio has a charm and charisma that wraps you up and throws you about and you love it. She is so funny and charming.
“It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.” -Oscar Wilde
#3 She is an entire library of wisdom. I am not even going to list what she is going to talk about because no matter what you will be left with your jaw on the floor.

“Where wisdom reigns, there is no conflict between thinking and feeling.” C.G.Jung

#4 She is a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity to actually meet someone you want to become.

“19 years later and I still title her, “My midwife”. The woman who reflected to me my power, and allowed for one of the greatest spiritual experiences of my life.”-Janet Martin Hughes

Summer Jesse Forrest
I met Summer almost 5 years ago and she has helped to change my life! 

She is powerful, gentle, warm and fierce all at once. She has become my life coach slowly over the years, first just through watching her transform her life. She inspired me. I looked at what summer did and has done and thought. I want to be like that. I asked Summer to join us to help us find new ways to find out what our paths can truly be when we are willing to dive deep. Summer’s speaking style is fun, relatable, conversational, empowering and genuine. She shares real and tangible ways to make dramatic and powerful changes in her life and students leave with real tools and are more equipped at making real changes in their careers!
We will be listening, writing, doing hands on work and deep sharing while laughing and crying. I am so excited to spend time with this thoughtful and powerful human being. She is not to be missed, want to be a whole new you in 2017? This is how we begin.
I’ve often thought it unfair that women are expected to stay at home when there’s a fight to be won. If a
woman has the strength to bear a child, she can swing a sword as well as any man.” -Karen Hawkins

Gena Kirby
I will be sharing tools and tips that will make being a doula in a hospital setting a little easier. I will also be sharing mystical and mythical stories and skill sets that can help you be the best doula you can be.
I am a doula, a childbirth educator and a radio show host (I just celebrated my 10th yr hosting!). I have served on the board of directors of Attachment Parenting International for over five years and yadda yadda yadda. Just come, we will have a blast. We will be doing some rebozo stuff, cuz that’s what makes me happy.

See you soon! xoxoxo
