Tools Of My Trade #14
My Home Bookshelf
Book learning is indeed important, and is often how a woman begins on the path. For me, it was Spiritual Midwifery that started the spark. I have always been a devout book lover, so collecting them was nothing new. I am always on the look out for a new addition to my collection. As much as books have to offer, they are only part of the equation. Through book learning we build the foundation but the most crucial skills and knowledge cannot be found within their pages. By far the most important teachers are the women themselves; both the mothers and our teachers. It is with them that we discover the authentic voice that is midwifery. This does not diminish the importance of our beloved books as every practitioner requires a solid foundation upon which to build.
