The Soul Midwives School


The Soul Midwives School is a  place of learning where Soul Midwives can learn their craft in a tranquil and nurturing environment

We now have a wonderful school close to Bridport town center. Watercleaves has dedicated lecture rooms, an outside eco class room, an orchard, lawns, meditation spaces and some accommodation, for students and  visiting teachers, along with plenty of parking.

We are  close to the Jurassic coast  and there are many local activities available for families, or partners,  in the area.

The  intention behind all the courses  is to teach  but also to inspire and prepare, in a reflective sense, for the essential work of supporting the dying

The original meaning of the word “hospice” was a place of hospitality where people could be nurtured before a journey

Echoing this, the school is run along the  principles  behind original hospice teachings where  good training,  simple food, conviviality  and a  practical hands on approach were vital to the learning process

Everyone is treated as family  on the courses . Simple,wholesome  meals are enjoyed  and deep experiences  are shared

The School day begins at 10.30 and ends at 4.30 pm   and there is  reflective homework set for the  first two nights of the  Practitioner courses

We also hold our Introductory day courses in several  venues around the country, but for Dorset courses,  the  Soul Midwives School at Watercleaves, is used

As courses often book up very quickly ( spaces are limited because we only teach small numbers at a time ) please email us with the  course and the date  that you would like to attend and we will  then send you a booking form by return

If you can’t attend the School in person, you may like to enrol on our very popular and highly regarded   Distance Learning Course which attracts students from all over the world
