A new online community is gathering to support women and families around birth and childrearing. Science reveals that mothers need psychological support around pregnancy, birth, and childrearing. Ancient wisdom teachings show that cultures long ago used rituals to access their subconscious minds to create oxytocin (feel-good) moments in their bodies. The Orinoco Flows community is an online resource center for women to come to know simple rituals they can engage with to create extra ordinary moments in their life and deepen their relationships with their children.
The group is founded by one man and two women who each bring unique gifts within the energetic healing arts. Our main facilitator, Rex Lassalle, has masterfully combined four decades of his understanding of health with the Alchemy of Time, shiatsu, and Oriental astrology to help women discover their Child Star. Sara Devoy adds her passion for prenatal bonding and craniosacral therapy to the group, along with Christianna Deichmann who adds her psychosomatic therapy skills and passion for birth psychology. All three of us wish to help support holistic births that honor the mother and child. The main focal point of this group is to engage with the natural elements through the astrology teachings of the 9 Star Ki (pronounced kee). Our Child star holds the key to our innate source of joy and fulfillment.
Orinoco Flows is simply an invitation to create extraordinary moments in your life by cultivating virtuous actions that nourish your Child Star element.
What is the Child Star?
The Child Star is the spiritual guide we carry within who is connected to our Subconscious Mind. It is accompanied with an element with which we can cultivate a relationship. When we do this, we are in tune with our unique emotional needs. By fostering a Relatedness with it, the feel-good level of our being is optimized.
Understanding the Child Star has a profound significance during pregnancy and augments the whole process of bonding. Birth workers, parents and therapists will find the insights practical and easy to apply.

The Orinoco River is a metaphor revealing the unrelenting generosity of water to help and heal us as a community. Rex’s own earliest impressions of his perinatal life have shaped him profoundly; they are integral to his approach.
The Orinoco Flows community is indeed a meeting of the waters. Sara Devoy has known Rex as mentor and friend for over thirty years and shares with Christianna Deichmann a compassionate motivation, just like water, to help clients uncover their core nurturing needs. The process of forming this community in itself continues to activate the most profound healing for ourselves, our families, and our clients. Thank you Orinoco for the refreshing ripples and sparkles that you bring to our conversations.
Who is Rex Lassalle?
Rex Lassalle is an Osteopath as well as a Shiatsu, Aikido and Zen practitioner. He is an international authority on Oriental Astrology and its impact on health. Over the last few decades, the relevance of the child star has become a dominant theme of my healing modality. I have seen how this links right back to my mothers’ pregnancy with me. Though she was carrying me I was really my granny’s son. She cooked every day for my mother. She did rituals for my mother when she was pregnant with me where the influence of my grandmother has effectively facilitated access to indigenous knowledge.
What can the Orinoco Flows community offer you?
A gathering space to commune with others who wish to relate to this ancient wisdom of the Child Star and how it applies to your health. This group will appeal to those that enjoy stories and experience more than facts and data. In this community, you will discover the power of incorporating simple rituals or ‘ceremonies’ in your life. The space itself is multi-dimensional and will be housed in Microsoft Teams so you can access a wealth of information about your Child Star through blog posts, videos, interviews, group chats, live talks, and more.
