Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977224945, Hardcover)Chris Griscom reaches through the pages of this book with such love and tenderness that our hearts are forever touched. Beautifully photographed and poetically written, Ocean Born is Ms. Griscom's intimate account of the ocean birth of her sixth child. This documentation of one of the world s first recorded ocean births describes the experience of birth without pain or fear; birth with conscious awareness and ecstatic joy. As we focus deeply into our own knowing, we enter into the funnel of initiation and pass through to the other side; to motherhood, which is a wave that will carry us up onto the shore of a new life, stronger and more powerful than ever before. It is a birth within a birth, for the woman becomes the mother as the child enters the world. They both come forth together - each with a new Self, yet coupled in an embrace that lasts a lifetime. Chris Griscom conceives birth as a spiritual initiation for the mother, child, father, and the family as a whole. This divine initiation is the fusion of future and past . Through it, we can brush across the threshold to our essence and glimpse our godliness. "It is my heart's desire that the words and images of these pages will bring you courage and a knowing that you can trust yourself and all the choices you make in your life. " Chris Griscom
