Peri-menopause is the period leading up to menopause. It can begin in the mid- to late 30s and last six to 13 years. It is often a time of uncertainty, in which we begin to re-evaluate our lives, reflect on what has passed, and realign with a deeper sense of self. Irregular and erratic periods, as well as pelvic floor imbalances and other symptoms, can be disconcerting and we may feel like we have lost our centre. However, this is the time in our lives in which we have the opportunity to step into our clarity, wisdom and power.

‘No other stage of a woman’s life has as much potential for understanding and tapping into woman’s power as this one.’

Menstrual Health – 13 October, 4.30pm to 7.30pm, £35.
The menstrual cycle is an important indicator of women’s wellbeing. When things go awry, this is often reflected in our menstrual health. Rather than viewing menstruation as an inconvenience or problem, however, we can instead choose to listen to the wisdom of our bodies and discover how an understanding of the rhythm of the menstrual cycle can connect us with flow and creativity in our lives.
‘We can reclaim the wisdom of the menstrual cycle by tuning in to our cyclic nature and celebrating it as a source of our female power. The ebb and flow of dreams, creativity and hormones associated with different parts of the cycle offer us a profound opportunity to deepen our connection with our inner knowing.’
Dr Christiane Northrup
Fertility & Conception – 17 November, 4.30pm to 7.30pm, £35.
Planning for a baby can be an exciting, and also uncertain, time in a woman’s life as she prepares the way to welcome new life into the world. Developing awareness of the menstrual cycle to support conception, as well as preparing emotionally and physically to become a mother can nurture and deepen a woman’s relationship with herself and her body.
