|Thank you for your workshop. I had a great time and have started to put things into practice. Prior to it I had already realised that I needed to have some type of downtime on my creative process, in fact it was my singing teacher who advised it...but don't think I'd really given myself the permission to do it. Just your simple diagram of the creative progress has really helped my mind to be at peace with this... I have also begun the process (of Cycle Awareness) and am already discovering lots of things. The main one is how intrinsically different elements are connected. It has only bought me closer to my voice and body, trying to accept where it is and work with it from there, rather than pushing it through the next hoop. I am developing a new approach to my practice, it begins with meditation, into the breathing, into the exercises, and then if needs be into any songs I'm working on. It is great to have the space to allow this process the time it needs, and it means I'm listening to my body as well as listening to what it can produce|

We had hit That Moment. You know the place...it’s when you wonder why you are doing what you are doing, the moment when you think it’s all s**t, or you’re just punch drunk with exhaustion and never want to see your creative project again. All the shine has gone from the initial great vision you had. Or maybe it’s ‘what vision?’. You have forgotten what it was that made you want to do this thing, and now you’re over it and could easily walk off into the sunset never to return.

I first met Alexandra Pope reading one of her books The Wild Genie, translated into Italian with the title of Mestruazioni. Something stirred in me from the first pages. I couldn’t at once realize the reason why I felt so much liking and closeness then I started understanding that what I liked about her were two precise things.
La pastilla anticonceptiva es un medicamento que interfiere en las funciones normales del organismo de la mujer y con efectos adversos en su salud y en la del medio ambiente.
l cumplir 27 años, tras tomar pastillas anticonceptivas durante diez años, Holl dejó este método. Había probado varias marcas, pero se dio cuenta de que todas le provocaban efectos secundarios, tanto físicos como emocionales: se sentía deprimida, tenía ansiedad, cambiaba constantemente de humor, se cansaba más de lo normal, estaba confusa y desorientada y experimentaba síntomas parecidos a los de la gripe. “No me sentía como debe sentirse una chica de 26 años que vive con todo tipo de lujos en Londres. Por las mañanas, prácticamente tenía que ir arrastrándome al trabajo”, explica esta joven londinense.

For most women, menstruation is a hassle – something we just learn to put up with once a month. And for those women who suffer problems, it can be distressing. But what if our menstrual cycle could be a real asset, a means by which we can live a more empowered and healthy life?

Do you suffer from menstrual problems? Do you dread getting your period every month? Maybe you think of it as a curse or something you just put up with.
