It's a tricky business finding help when you're feeling vulnerable, especially in menopause so if you're wondering about what you can do, or having a Medicine Circle, you can book a chat with me at no charge and get yourself some free space to talk stuff through and ask questions.

This is a visual guide to the inner seasons of menstruality, you'll find the more you develop menstrual cycle awareness, the greater the gifts you'll receive.

A Menstrual Medicine Circle will deepen your understanding of what getting in the way of your well-being and what your next steps are.
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.

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 ...
You don't necessarily have to have a womb or a menstrual cycle to benefit from a Menstrual Medicine Circle.
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 underp...
What is a Medicine Circle?
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.
“Experiencing the menstrual medicine circle with Kate has been life changing & profoundly healing. It has allowed me to connect to my Womb’s wisdom, deepening understanding of my truth and ...
