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, ...

Six Ways to Help Period Pain

Menstrual pain is no joke, 40 – 70% of women of reproductive age experience some kind of pain, with 10% of women describing severe symptoms. That’s a lot of regular women with hot water bottles. In fact, there is no need for us to experience pain, it is not healthy or necessary. 1. Menstrual cycle awareness You know about pre-menstrual grumps I bet. OK maybe not grumps but it used to be full-on raging in my case. “Will you please stop breathing like that!!!”  But what if I was to suggest that your energy and internal weather changed all through your cycle?   Noting down your feelings and energy each day of your cycle ...

Bugger self help

  I started on personal growth pretty young. When I was 13 my big sister was into the (frankly terrifying) Exegisis, a UK version of Est and though I was thankfully too young to participate (thank the Goddess). I was very influenced by listening to her new world view – so refreshing and different to my highly buttoned up middle-class mum and dad.   This went on through Chuck Spezzano workshops, way-out-there healing, voice dialogue, bodywork, Reiki, rolfing, meditation, massage not to mention £100’s of pounds on self-help books. Then the biggest investment of them all, not one but two body psychotherapy trainings with weekly ...

Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo-Wurlitzer authors of 'Wild Power' and menstruality mavens at Red School are definitely wild. I was lucky enough to grab them before Graham Norton etc. booked them up so I could ask them about how menstruality became the biggest thing in their lives, how come periods are finally being talked about in public and what simple thing you can do today to access your own wild power.

How to Be Your Own Guru

Why is it hardest to be kind to ourselves?   I routinely hear women say “Take care” to each other as they say goodbye or, “You should put your feet up” or some such, but why is it that we so seldom actually do it?   We know we should take time out, but it somehow gets lost in the busyness of life; other demands just seems more important that our own.   So many of us have sky-high stress levels, with every moment of our lives crammed to bursting with activity and stimulation. The roles of wife/partner, mother, career woman, creatirix, goddess, friend, carer etc. (Add your own unique recipe here!) Don’t leave ...

Code Red Altert!

I am very excited to introduce a vibrant exponent of the power of women Lisa Lister of The Sassy She. Crowned ‘the defender of female awesomeness’ by Cooler magazine, Lisa is a writer, plus-size yoga teacher, feminist, menstrual queen and now a fellow belly loving massage maven. Her new book ‘Code Red’ is published this week and I was lucky enough to persuade her to tell us about her work and world-view. Welcome Lisa! I read that living life with your cycle totally changed your life; can you say a bit about how that happened? I was a total go-for-it girl. I worked in TV + journalism, I was career orientated, I was engaged to a ...
