Infinitely Deep – Meditation Pants

I made these meditation pants for our meditation class so that when we lose our shit, fall into a hole, forget who we are or otherwise encounter pesky obstacles, we can remind ourselves of who we are. They are part of the Pants of Empowerment project, which celebrates the richness and diversity of feminine experience. They were inspired by this koan.   Eshun's Deep Thing Japan - 14th Century  Eshun was a nun at the monastery of Saijoji. The abbot of Saijoji wanted to send a message to the abbot of the great temple of Engakuji, which was known for its rough treatment of outsiders. None of the monks from Saijoji dared to go, only ...

Why Does Menopause Hurt So Bad?

Why does menopause hurt so bad? I mean really? All it is is the natural shift in hormones as our menstruating life comes to an end and our 'second spring' emerges. It's a shift from taking care of 'them out there' to taking care of ourselves; shouldn't that be easier and more joyful? One late summer morning I got up with a bee in my bonnet on this issue and did a Facebook live to think it through. Click on the image below to watch the vid. What I didn't go into, but will maybe get a bee in my bonnet about another day, is a lot of the pain is down to our culture not valuing age in general and older women in particular. Grrrr. Sadly the offer of ...

The Her-story of Menstrual Medicine Circles

Though they've been used in workshops for a few years, 1-2-1 Menstrual Medicine Circles are still a relatively new process. I was curious about how something so powerful had been developed and birthed so I asked Alexandra Pope, co-founder of Red School and the UK's most longstanding activist for period power, how it all came about. Alexandra shares the approaches she's called on to support the circles, how they developed from group process to be a powerful agent for women's empowerment and her vision for the future. The role of the Red School mentors has been underplayed in the development of the Medicine Circle process, sadly there wasn't enough ...

Menstrual Medicine Circles Process

What is a Menstrual Medicine Circle Process? Menstrual Medicine Circles support sensitive women through our transitions into beautiful, better version of ourselves. This may be with menopausal, menstruating or perimenopausal women who want to deepen their understanding of their cycles and use this understanding to heal and deepen their joy in being a woman. This is what my clients have experienced. Our culture doesn’t support transformation, which might involve slinging out what doesn’t work in your life, grieving the loss of your younger self and healing the parts of yourself that call or shout for attention. But if you ignore it, you are ...
