I spent my school career staring out of windows hoping that a knight on a shining stallion would come cantering by to save me from boredom (or perhaps I’d have preferred the horse on its own in those days), and as a result I graduated with D’s from school and a mediocre degree in art teaching from University. The longing that kept me staring out of windows never really left me, although I did manage to plant my feet more firmly on the earth when it wasn’t covered in concrete. And now, looking back over the vista of sixty one years, that long ago yearning was a necessary (and I suspect, not uncommon) need to merge numinous otherworldly stuff with the bare bones of this beautiful thing called life. This anchoring is what I love, teach, and continue to investigate and learn about. I do so through birth where I have spent so much of my working life, through life, and perhaps, God-Allah-Yahweh-and co willing, even through death, when I eventually wend my merry way towards it.
The Soul Integration programme connects individuals to their innermost resources. I guide pregnant parents individually to connect to the souls of their unborn babies. I write about this bridging of soul to earthly realms in “The Mama Bamba Way”, and I teach it through my new book, The Liminal Lands, which is due out in March 2019.
I would love for you to join with me to share your awe-inspiring journeys as there is a blessing in sharing, that brings the sacred closer to home.

SOUL INTEGRATION FACILITATOR TRAINING
THE LIMINAL LANDS
SOUL INTEGRATION SESSIONS
Soul Integration sessions create profound shifts at a deep level of your consciousness where outworn patterns of behaviour are released to allow for a centred and balanced sense of a fully integrated self. They are guided by the Higher Self using a process of Active Imagination.
THE LIMINAL LANDS
Robyn’s spiritual memoir is due on the shelves in March 2019. It has been ten years in the making and tells the story of her journey back and forth between her interior life and her everyday life in a cottage on the slopes of the Helshoogte Mountains. Merging the two brings insight into the part she plays in creating her untidy life and into her responsibility of being a co-creator of the mess we are making on earth.
THE UNBORN BABIES
Where we honour the magnificence of birth and the soul wisdom of the incoming babies
Birth is a sacred event. Mama Bamba recognises that love and deep listening enhance the beauty of birth. We support our clients to create soul-filled births in a language that their caregivers understand and respect.
Doulas make birth safe and filled with joy, love and support.
MAMA BAMBA childbirth classes
“The more we resist and fight and fear labour, the more it hurts. The more we soften and open to the experience, the more magnificent it becomes.”
UNBORN CHILD SESSIONS
Unborn child sessions transform your relationship with your child, because you get to know them on a soul level.
The Mama Bamba Way
There is richness and magic in birth. Yet because we are afraid of its pain and power we turn our backs on it, choosing instead to sanitise it and strip it of feeling through medical interventions.
Yet birth is a peak experience that has the potential to transform us, and birthing with conscious awareness offers our children an initial experience of life where they are shown that they need not be afraid – that life in all its intensity is something to embrace, laugh with, cry about and cherish.

COMING HOME TO YOURSELF IN THE AFRICAN BUSHVELD
A Retreat to Recharge, Relax and Reconnect to your True Nature
June 2019. Okavango Delta
A 7 day inner and outer exploration to harness the wisdom of elephants, shamans and your own intuitive guidance to create the lives you have always longed to live.
The night skies and the Milky Way are so close they breathe with you as you quieten down into the magnificence of aligning with your True Nature, and it feels as though the brilliant heavens are stretching down to touch your sleeping bag.
