The Temple of Leto at Letoon!
According to a legend Leto felt in love with Zeus and gave birth to her twins, Artemis and Apollo on the island of Delos, Zeus' jealous wife Hera deported Leto with the twins to Anatolia where she came to the place of Letoon.
Another story gives the twins' birthplace as the source of the Xanthos River (EsenRiver) and wolves helped her find the Xanthos River. In gratitude Leto named the country Lycia = Lykos, wolf in Greek.
Letoon is 10 km to the south of the capital city of the Lycia , Xanthos.
Xanthos and Letoon are often seen as a "doublesite", since the two were closely linked and Letoon was administered by Xanthos
Letoon has been registered in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list with Xantos, Letton is located in the southwestern of Antalya Province near Kas.

I believe that childbirth classes benefit from more ancient tools. You won't find a PowerPoint in my classes nor any charts or graphs. Those items take us into our linear, thinking, rational brain. The hormones that help birth progress come from the instinctual brain buried deep beneath the neocortex. Activating the neocortex (or Apollonian brain as I like to call it--named after the Greek god who represents much of what modern Western culture reveres) can get in the way of the hormonal brain (or Artemisian brain named after Artemis the Greek goddess of childbirth and twin sister of Apollo). These two elements of the brain can trigger one another in ways that can be either helpful or disruptive to the laboring brain.
When I teach childbirth classes, I wish to teach to engage the part of the brain that is more active during labor. It is my intention to involve the Artemisian part as much as possible. Which tools I use matter.
Storytelling, metaphors, bodily engagement, role plays, and visually pleasing teaching props all help capture the imagination of the parents in ways that charts and graphs do not. The most technologically advanced tool I use is a small whiteboard (OK and sometimes my phone for music).
Shown here is my Tibetan singing bowl used to signal the start and end of contractions. The wooden egg was a gift from my ritual mentor and is used to remind me of what I'm really doing and why it matters. I don't use this item in class directly; this one small item upon my teaching centerpiece is just for me. Underneath these items is a quilted dilation chart made and given to me by @vbobro.
I taught a weekend class this past weekend and my teaching altar (or "toys on the floor" as I like to call it since soon-to-be parents need to become used to toys on the floor and many of my items look like toys) was in full use. These items engaged parents hearts not just their rational mind. Plus, learning AND teaching this way is a LOT more fun than using PowerPoint!
The god Apollo fell in love with Cassandra, daughter of Priamus king of Troy and Hecuba queen of the underworld. He gave her the incredible gift of seeing the future, one of the many great powers he possessed, but in return she refused to see him and did nothing but heap hatred, scorn, laughter and ridicule upon him.
Finally, Apollo cursed her that each one of her prophecies would be true but no one would ever believe her. She was later witness to the complete destruction of her home city by the Greek armies and the murder of her father, mother, and brothers Hector and Paris in the war of Troy due to the abduction of Helena - all of which she saw in advance and was powerless to stop as she warned, pleaded, cried and raged and none would listen. Unrequited love thus led to untold ruin...
Ciò che nella vita rimane, non sono i doni materiali, ma i ricordi che hai vissuto e ti hanno fatto felice. La tua ricchezza non è chiusa in una cassaforte, ma nella tua mente. È nelle emozioni che hai provato dentro la tua anima.

Pete Conrad and Alan Bean step onto the lunar surface this day in 1969.
Unlike Apollo 11 before them, the crew of Apollo 12 execute a precise landing at the Ocean of Storms, near the landing site of the Surveyor 3 probe.
The first color TV camera was brought to the moon on Apollo 12, but the camera's internal electronics, specifically the video pickup tube, were destroyed when Bean accidentally pointed the camera towards the sun.
The EVAs included setting up the first long-duration Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package, or ALSEP, which included instrumentation to measure lunar seismic activity, the moons magnetic field, among other lunar phenomena. Apollo 12 landed about 600ft from the Surveyor 3 probe, which had landed on the moon two years earlier. The astronauts removed several pieces of the probe, to be studied after returning to the Earth.
Apollo 12 remains the only instance in which Astronauts have visited a separately launched probe. It is the hope of this Historian that when we do finally reach Mars, those Astronauts repeat the feat of Apollo 12 with any of the rovers or probes currently on that distant Martian world.

I never imagined I'd ever have a bird but Apollo was my first and he's a rescue. It took a while to get him to trust me but now he's my spoiled little baby boy. He talks unbelievably and often uses words he's learned in context. 💞💞 #birdsofinstagram#parakeets#parakeet#housesparrows#apollo
I have heard arguments from environmentalist-types (and others) that claim it would just be better if humans had never existed. By my approximation, this is a horribly backwards and destructive idea. I don’t know if it is simply an attempt at virtue signaling or if it is a serious claim. Regardless, let’s keep those who think this way out of positions of power!
The world we live in is the cumulative product of remarkable contributions made over millions of years by our ancestors who became the first tool users, mastered the use of fire, learned to navigate by the stars, and ultimately sent its own kind into space. Without the benefit of their hard work, sacrifices, and brilliant insights, none of us would be here at all. There would be no educational institutions, no writing, no books, no music, no art, and no cities. No joy and no meaning. No love. And for all the serious damage that can be traced back to our evolution, we have doubled the average modern human lifespan, brought high tech communication, and created a diverse and easily attainable assortment of foods and shelter (in the developed world). In my opinion, the costs of these changes do not outweigh the benefits. Whether you see the future of mankind as promising or depressing, there is no going back.
The challenge for us and our subsequent generations is to identify and repair the damage that we’ve caused along the way and to learn how to make things better for all living things and the Earth itself. I am truly optimistic that we will be able to do this. It is and will be a great challenge, requiring the attention and seriousness of each individual. So get after it! By figuring something out today and/or treating a stranger kindly, you yourself are contributing to the advancement of our species.
