Living from your Feminine Power Workshops for Women

Working with Women’s Cycles: Celebrating the Wild Feminine

Menstruality is a new term to describe the inner wisdom within each woman, which guides her throughout her life journey. Ultimately, we are on a spiritual journey home to ourselves, connecting to our body intelligence and knowing, our heart’s longing and to the depths of our being. We can see the most significant transitions of our lives, from birth to menarche (our first bleed) and to each monthly menstruation, onwards to the menopause and finally to our dying, as major times of initiation. For those women who have a child, pregnancy and giving birth is also a major initiatory process.

Our female cycles help us to become more embodied and to honour our connection to the natural world. When we practise menstrual cycle awareness, we not only deepen in self-awareness and self-love, we can cultivate self-care practises that promote greater psycho-emotional and physical health. In addition, we have the opportunity to step more fully into our creative power and potential as women.

The menopause is a major transition and time of empowerment for women. Sadly it is little understood in western culture that fails to support or honour women in the aging process or into stepping into the gifts of later life. However, with awareness and preparation, there is so much we can do to skilfully negotiate this time of change.

“At menarche you meet your wisdom
With monthly bleeding you practise your wisdom
And, at menopause you become your wisdom”

We will be using the template of the 4 seasons, as we explore our changing inner world & life cycles. This work is inspired by the work of Red School & the 4 inner seasons. Whether you are a menstruating woman, perimenopausal, menopausal or an elder, this work is relevant for you. We will be deepening our relationship with ourselves on both the human & spiritual level & connecting with our deeper purpose in being here in the world. This may be particularly relevant for younger women in transition in their lives & for older women who are in a process of renewal & reemergence during the menopausal years.

Frankie Duggan & I are experienced teachers & offer a safe & supportive container for working with transformational processes. The 9 month period of the journey together gives time for deep inner shifts to take place & for outer changes to be put into place.
