The Grace of Being in Process

Welcome to Purna's newsletter! These monthly updates will share our growing process, what our members are offering, how you can get involved, and resources. You'll also get a taste of our teachings, like my Being in Process meditation video below, and Kimberly's story of surrendering to the birth of her son.

The past few weeks have been a big transition as I've stepped into Purna fully. It's been a leap of commitment to my life work, and it's meant not knowing each detail while in action. This has been an opportunity to learn the grace of being in process - I get to be my full potential in this moment, living what is now and enjoying the process of figuring it out as I go.

I share about this process in the newest addition to Purna's Unconditional Love video channel. This is my first video speaking live in front of the camera - which was itself a journey of letting myself be in process. Here's the video:

In Process:
From birthing to early motherhood
By Kimberly Ky

Hello all, I'm Kim. My passion is to teach from my path. Here I will explore the intersection of my spiritual practice with motherhood.

I had 9 months to envision and prepare for the perfect birth. I practiced yoga, I ate mindfully, I spoke mantras, I read all about natural birthing, I listened to podcasts, I created an intuitive birth painting, and what feels like so much more.

This was my process leading to the actual process of birthing. Usually, we think of process in relation to a result. I am doing blank to reach blank. In this case, I was in my process in order to give birth to my baby naturally.

Fast forward to the moment I was asked a series of questions in the triage room. My water had broken the night before, and opted to go through early labor at home. I was back and ready to get this baby out.

The nurse asked, “What is your birth plan?”

Without hesitation, but with slight insecurity, I answered, “My only plan is to go all natural.”

The labor progressed and so did my discomfort. Each contraction came and went, and each one did not feel any more bearable than the last. I got into positions that I had practiced, I got on the yoga ball, I was trying to be so mindful! But in reality, I was attached to these methods “working” and them being the ultimate “solutions”.

After some time, I had a moment of deep quiet and peace. Something had shifted. I wasn’t only feeling discomfort, I was actually feeling sick. The nurse did some tests and a doctor soon came in and informed me that my uterus was infected (a risk of going home to labor after my water broke). We were going to take a detour in my plan of being all natural. This was the beginning of my process of letting go.
