Birth Rite: A Birth Story Workshop
Facilitated by Dev Bry
Birth Rite is a series of sessions for birthing people to process, honor, and claim their birthing story.
What to Expect
Facilitated by embodiment counselor and ritual lover, Devorah Bry, participants are welcomed into a compassionate and securely held space to explore the moments in which they gave birth. In an intimate and supportive group, we will practice receiving each other, offering empathy, reflection, and open, honest, raw discussion.

Meet Your Facilitator
Dev Bry, MA, CHT, CMT
Dev has been working therapeutically and facilitating rites of passages for close to 20 years. She received an ordination from the IM School of Healing Arts in 2004 and received her master’s degree in Somatic Psychology in 2007. She is a Certified Hakomi Therapist and has extensive training in a variety of body-oriented healing modalities, including Somatic Experiencing, trauma resolution therapy, and Biodynamic Cranio-Sacral Therapy, a gentle hands-on alignment of the body's subtle inner rhythms.
In essence, Dev is a dancer, a mother, a community builder.
She is the founder and executive director of HoneyRoot, an organization devoted to Somatic Education in service of Embodiment, Relationships, Social Justice and Intergenerational Community.
In addition to supporting the re-awakening of the body wisdom and honoring the power innate in birth, assisting couples in the spiritual dance of relationships is one of Dev’s greatest gifts and deepest passions.
OUR BIRTHING STORIES?
Without a protected and affirming community space to express our birthing stories, these sacred and deeply complex experiences remain untold, unknown and misunderstood. Often shared through the lens of the dominant culture - our unique and profoundly human experiences and the deep wisdom within are at risk. Sharing these stories is critical for our own individual healing and integration, but also as our culture looks to find our way toward a more inclusive and representational understanding of ourselves. By revisiting this transformative experience of birth, participants in this Birth Rite Workshop will have the opportunity to be in the awe, process trauma, celebrate, and discover a newfound sense of integration.
TO BE SEEN AS AWESOME.

CONTAINS AND/OR EXPANDS YOUR EXPERIENCE -
GIVING IT MEANING, A REFRESHED POINT OF VIEW, COMPLETENESS.
“Dev is a warrior shamaness in her ability to navigate, guide, and integrate our inner wisdom. Her work helps free the Soul from previously imposed limitations, as she knows that Our Spirit truly begins by re-embodying our Primal Nature, our Feminine & Masculine aspects, our Communal Wisdom.”
- Amanda M.
“Each time I work with Dev I leave with the comforting sensation of inhabiting a part of my body that was empty before, and a new ability to hold and love the parts of myself that are coming home”
- Jess E.
“Devorah’s work is profound. She has a very professional, yet relaxed and unique style. She holds Space. There is an unmistakable sense of trust in her eyes and in her voice; she knows how to bring “real” to the room. I am extremely grateful to have met Devorah and look forward to continuing to work with her.”
- Matt O.
