Stephanie Dawn is a Spiritual Business Strategist and Mentor working with the visionaries transforming the dominant birth paradigm from fear to love. Stephanie Dawn inspires hundreds of women (and a few smart men!) around the world in the creation of a new paradigm of living, birthing and heart-centered business, with a focus on spiritual principles, personal responsibility, excellent self-care and financial and business know-how and wellness. She is the author of the Sacred Birth Workbook and the Sacred Birth Mentor Program, which offers birth professionals an opportunity to certify and teach Sacred Birth Work. She also created the 7 week Homestudy Course My Birth Business Rocks with playwright and founder of the BOLD Method for Birth, Karen Brody.
As an advocate for the feminine voice with a deep dedication to growing women’s awareness of their divine feminine power in life, in birth and in business, Stephanie works with women visionaries and emerging visionaries in the birth world and beyond, to help them access their wisdom, articulate their message, and grow their businesses in profound ways.
In her 20 years in the personal growth industry and 11 years in the birth world, Stephanie has traveled extensively both on an internal and global journey. She began her career as an actress in Vancouver, British Columbia. Upon moving to California in 1991, she lived for 3 years on an organic citrus ranch, where her holistic studies truly began; yoga, aromatherapy, massage, vegetarianism and all things health and wellness became her practice.
Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, acting was soon replaced with activism as she began to feel a deep need to protect the old growth forests of her native British Columbia. She worked in fundraising and event production, as well as a non-violent, civil disobedient activist with Rainforest Action Network, Greenpeace, Amazon Watch and the NRDC, among others. In 1994 she first attended services at Agape and by 2001 began serving as an Agape Licensed Spiritual Practitioner for the next 12 years. 2004 saw the dawn of the first Sacred Birth Workshop and she continued to work with expectant couples for the next 6 years. In 2010 Stephanie took her work to Italy and the Sacred Birth Workbook was published in Italian. The Sacred Birth Mentor Program came into being at that time and now hundreds of women have matriculated through Stephanies programs. Stephanie is mother to two boys and lives with her husband in Los Angeles.
