FAQ’s Rite Of The Womb
The Rite of the Womb
Marcela Lobos received this Rite as a sacred energetic transmission in 2014 from the lineage of women through the jungle medicine. She passed this Rite on to many women who continue to spread its beauty, healing and empowerment. The lineage of women want us to honor the thirteen moons of the year which are connected to the monthly cycles of the womb.
Marcela writes ~
“And now you are the lineage as much as I am the lineage. We are becoming women who freed themselves from suffering. Keep nurturing the rite until there is no more fear or pain in your womb.”

What is the Munay-Ki?
The Munay-Ki are a series of contemporary rituals brought to the western world by Dr. Alberto Villoldo, the husband of Marcel Lobos. Through his work as a medical anthropologist with the high shamans of South America, Dr Villoldo experienced their sacred teachings and knowledge and formulated the contemporary rituals of the Munay-Ki.
As Dr. Villoldo says, “Rites of passage and initiation have been practiced for millennia by all peoples in the Earth. The rites of the Munay-Ki are based on initiatory practices of the shamans of the Andes and the Amazon. They are stripped of all trace of the indigenous cultures they come from. I did this to respect the native traditions, and to avoid the idea that persons from the West can become traditional shamans or Indians.”
Why 13th and not 10th?
There are nine Munay-Ki Rites. The Rite of the Womb is given the place as the 13th Rite to honour the thirteen moons of a year and are connected to the cycles of the womb. As a feminine rite, it does not follow the patterns of linear thinking and process.
If I had a hysterectomy can I receive this rite?
It is even more important to receive this rite. Energetically your womb is still in place. This rite allows you to bring healing and reconnection with your sacred womb space and to reclaim your feminine wisdom and power. After you receive the rite it is fundamental that you nurture it every dark moon to heal any imprints of pain and sorrow and step into joy and compassion. Instructions are given at the time of the Rite.
Can pregnant women receive the rite?
Yes, this rite is a blessing for the mother and the baby as it instills the sacredness of the womb space. It is given with extra gentleness and in full reverence for life.
What about if I’ve had an abortion or miscarriage?
It is definitely needed. This rite helps to remove any imprints of pain or sorrow and move forward because the womb is not a place to store fear and pain.
What about men?
All life comes from the womb of the Earth and all men come from a womb. It is just as important that men become womb keepers, as it is for women. Men become womb keepers by letting women know they support their healing journey and by becoming stewards of the Earth.
Can men participate in the ceremony?
If the women who are giving and receiving the rite feel that is appropriate to invite men to the ceremony then is absolutely fine.
When the men show up in service to the women and the rite, it is tremendously healing for everyone involved. Men can help set the sacred space making it feel especially safe for the women. Then men can be positioned in a strategic way to make the women feel that they are supported in this healing. To enhance their role the men can play sticks as a way of saying we are here for you.
Can men receive the rite?
Sometime men have had traumatic in utero or birth experiences or dysfunctional relationships with the feminine aspect of life. When a man feels it necessary to heal his psychic womb and asks to receive this rite with a sincere heart then is appropriate to share it with him.
