The Blessingway

How many of you have heard of the traditional Native American tradition called the Blessingway? It's not that well know among traditional baby shower participants, but it's a nice alternative to those who are looking for a more spiritual celebration. The blessingway is a ceremony that focuses on the journey of pregnancy rather than just recognizing the new bundle of joy.

Blessingways stray away for traditional baby shower games, favors and gift giving. But they are still very entertaining. The guests usually participate in more spiritual activities such as using birth beads, making belly casts, and candle lighting.

Check out the link in this post for more ideas and information about this unique baby shower alternative.
