Product description

Product Description

Birth Without Violence is comprised of three unique films on one DVD. The first film, 'Birth Without Violence' , takes a revolutionary look at the way we welcome our children into the world'.Shantala: Loving Hands' , the second film on the DVD, examines traditional East Indian massage derived from Ayurveda, emphasizing the importance of touch for the newborn. Finally, in the third film, 'The Art of Breathing' , Savitry Nayar Shivalingapa teaches the traditional carnatic chanting connected to Qi Gong and Yoga Prana, accompanied by the tampoura. These are films by pioneering physician, poet, and philosopher Frederick Leboyer are timeless and perhaps more valuable today for the childbearing public, health professional, or anyone interested in this topic, than when they were first released. These films take you into the heart of the mystery of what it means to be born, and how fully conscious and exquisitely sensitive babies are from the start. Leboyer pays homage to both ancient feminine wisdom and the crucial law of the mother-infant relationship in shaping our life and culture.

Review

Here is a short film, in black and white, with no soundtrack other than the sounds of the new baby and his (ideal) birthing environment by French physician and philosopher Frederick Leboyer. Filmed in 1975, it is an incredibly intimate portrait of birth. One almost feels, sees and senses from the newborns point of view, as he is gently and thoughtfully welcomed into the world. This welcoming is accomplished with a minimum of tears and shocks to the system, as soft lighting, massaging and comforting hands, and not a single iota of urgency accompanies his welcome. This film is not dated, nor has its message expired (unfortunately). It is beautiful, poetic, inspirational and, I feel, a must see for anyone approaching or planning for an upcoming birth. (Im not in this position and I still loved the film!) Presented by New Earth Records with two other films by Dr. Leboyer, Shantala: Loving Hands (emphasizing the importance of touch to the newborn) and The Art of Breathing. A beautiful film. --Creations Magazine
