Awareness means knowing how to "read"
your body to know when you are fertile, and when you are not. It can be used as
natural birth control, or to help you achieve pregnancy. It also gives a woman
insight into her health, and can be very empowering, especially with respect to
reproductive health and sexuality. This one day seminar will give women all the
basic skills to be able to learn her body's signs and chart her cycle to regain
control and knowledge over her own body. Jennie Luna is a PhD
in Native American Studies
and Professor in Mexican American Studies at San Jose State University. She has
been studying and working in the areas of women's reproductive rights for over
ten years. She is a certified/trained and practicing doula (labor assistant)
for over 5 years and has helped in the healthy delivery of 14 babies. She has
been trained in fertility awareness and advocates for women to be critical of
the pharmaceutical industry's control on women's reproductive health and
choices. She is interested in pursuing more work on Xicana Indigena
socio-cultural attitudes around moon time (menstrual cylces) and honoring our
bodies, rites of passage through ceremony, natural labor and delivery
choices, and (re)claiming Indigenous/traditional labor and
