Dawn Leonard is a womb healing practitioner who has devoted over a decade to the art of healing the womb space, including both the physical uterus and the energetics of the “second chakra”. Her journey began with fertility and has since led her through a range of experiences, including pregnancy, birth,, menstruation, ceremony, and energy healing. Dawn specializes in the initiatory experiences inherent in the body of a woman or person with a uterus, and her passion is to empower others on their own journey towards womb healing.
