The Soul Midwives School is a place of learning where Soul Midwives can learn their craft in a tranquil and nurturing environment
We now have a wonderful purpose built school close to Bridport town center. Watercleaves has dedicated lecture rooms, an outside eco class room, an orchard, lawns, meditation spaces and some accommodation, for students and visiting teachers, along with plenty of parking.
We are close to the Jurassic coast and there are many local activities available for families, or partners, in the area.
The intention behind all the courses is to teach but also to inspire and prepare, in a reflective sense, for the essential work of supporting the dying
The original meaning of the word “hospice” was a place of hospitality where people could be nurtured before a journey
Echoing this, the school is run along the principles behind original hospice teachings where good training, good food, conviviality and a practical hands on approach were vital to the learning process
Everyone is treated as family on the courses . Hearty vegetarian meals are enjoyed and deep experiences are shared
The School day begins at 10.30 and ends at 4.30 pm and there is reflective homework set for the first two nights of the Practitioner courses
We hold our Introductory day courses in several venues around the country, but for Dorset courses, the Bridport Friends Quaker Meeting House is used
As courses often book up very quickly ( spaces are limited because we only teach small numbers at a time ) please email us with the course and the date that you would like to attend and we will then send you a booking form by return
If you can’t attend the School in person, you may like to enrol on our very popular and highly regarded Distance Learning Course which attracts students from all over the world
