Have recently read through Jeannine Parvati Baker's books including "Concious Conception". While I truly, truly appreciated her sentiments regarding only using fertility awareness (for philosophical/metaphysical/spiritual reasons etc.), I kind of feel like I'm just "not quite there yet". Who knows if I ever will be?
In any event, herbal bc seems like a more comfortable place right now between ditching the latex and just going with fertility awareness alone, but I'm still feeling a bit spiritually conflicted about it. Kind of very similar to the feeling that I'd really love to be vegetarian for moral/ecological reasons, but my body has rejected that notion for this lifetime anyway. (and not JMO - I've gotten the same advice from numerous other alternative practitioners I've gone to over the years who normally tell their clients to eat less meat etc.)
So, anyone have any advice/insights on reconciling these ideas/states of being??? Mind you, this is all coming from someone with a really strong pro-woman/pro-choice stance, so it's not a ding on anyone else at all, more like I'm just trying to find some ways to live in this in-between space that I am really suprised to currently find myself in.
Lastly, I have - and love! - Susun's Wisewoman Herbal for the Childbearing Year - in fact, keep giving away my copy to friends and family - but would love to hear anyone's particular faves for a monthly "moon" (emmenogogue) infusion.
