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

It’s calling you to claim who you are in service of us all.

Join us on this workshop to explore the female initiatory path to power and learn how to release the resources, gifts and insights inherent in your body’s cyclical rhythm.

You’ll discover:

  • Your inner compass for navigating this way and cultivating your power

  • The ultimate mindfulness practice for women

What happens in the workshop

The day introduces your key 'map' and spiritual practice—the menstrual cycle—to guide you on your psychological and spiritual journey to maturity. After some teaching, we do one extensive exercise to connect you to the initiatory process of the cycle, and from that experience unpack together the different tasks, challenges and powers you hold within you in each 'season' or phase of the cycle, and how to honour and care for them better. You’ll come away with both revelation and a practical means to deepen into your calling and awaken you Wild Power.

Each workshop we run surprises and inspires us. It is as though we are co-creatively unlocking a wisdom that's been hidden for too long, and each woman holds a piece of that emerging story.

One of the commonest cries that comes up from women after a workshop or talk is “Why didn’t I know about this before? Why didn’t anyone tell me this when I was younger?” They feel a lot of grief, as though they have been cheated of something. Please don’t become one of those women. Come to the workshop and remember again this knowledge. It will be familiar to you. And then you can help other women to wake up sooner.

How it will help you to heal

If you suffer from menstrual problems you may wonder how this will help heal your symptoms. In fact we regard this as the first step in healing, and that is why we teach it before anything else. Apart from being inspiring and dignifying, understanding and working with the power of the cycle reduces stress considerably. Stress is a key culprit in the back of any menstrual problem. Cooperating with your cycle will also give you insight into your problems, and transform your relationship to yourself, making it easier to do the many other health practices that we also advise. Cycle wisdom alone eases symptoms. But don’t take it from us. Do read some of the feedback we’re received. We highly recommend you start right away on our online Hormone Harmony course to discover the many self care strategies for any particular menstrual health issues

Here are the words of a number of women from recent workshops and talks

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the most awesome, inspiring, homecoming, educational, fun, emotional, eye opening, womb freeing, hormone allowing day! YOU TWO ROCK MY SOCKS. To be surrounded by so many beautiful souls, all seeking clarity and ownership over what it is to be a woman has touched me so deeply. Feels like the start of something enormous and right. Linzi Rodina, yoga teacher.

I have never been to such a vitally important and transformative workshop before in my life. I have attended a few Alternatives workshops and other workshops run elsewhere, they have all been interesting and important in their own way and I have always been able to take things away but never like this.It was not just me who felt this, there was a feeling at the end of the day of something shifting in that room amongst all those wonderful women. This is the kind of enlightenment that a woman should be born with. This is the kind of enlightenment that changes lives. Harri Earthy, 27yr, artist,

Thank you so much…I feel both liberated and inspired, as though I am finally allowed to be me. Holly Tarquin, mother and university lecture

Wow! What an absolute privilege it was for me to spend the day with you both…It was such an amazing experience on so, so many levels, both professionally and personally. I never expected to experience the shift I experienced. I think I was the only person who tentatively raised their hand in response to the question: “Who here has been thinking ‘what’s all the fuss about. I am not sure why I am here!’? As the day unfolded the pennies dropped time and time and time again. As you explained the inner seasons it was like the lights started to switch on and the awakening process had begun. Jo Stallard, Clinical Hypnotherapist, 44 yrs, CEO of Foresight

I absolutely LOVED the are SO SO gifted and it is so obvious that you really CARE for each individual.....I came to your course for health reasons but left emotionally healed in so many was like a piece of the puzzle that was missing was found." L. B. Teacher

I feel for the first time more connected to my ‘feminine’ and am just beginning a journey of self discovery. I’m excited where it leads, it is what I needed without knowing it! Daniela Beer, HR manager, London

A big thank you for a really amazing day last weekend. I have to confess that I used to see the course in the Alternatives magazine and think ’I am never doing a course like that.’ Oh boy am I eating my words! I think your course should be taught to every young woman in every school in the country. It was a joy to see you joint facilitating. In fact we forgot we were rather cramped in that room because you were both so magnetic, interested and enthusiastic. Sarah, actor, 44 years, London, 2012

I just wanted to write and thank you both again for a fantastic, eye (and more importantly) heart opening day. Now that I'm home, I can't believe how different I feel. I sense that a massive shift has occurred in me, and I feel happy, free and excited to explore myself as a woman. I have been carrying A LOT of tension in my back and shoulders for years that no massage has ever been able to fully shift. And...its now gone! I literally can't believe it. I feel that the work today has really opened something up in me - what seems to make sense to me is that I'm now free to begin life again as a new woman free from some sort of past shame or repression I have been harbouring around that fact for many many years. ER, Web Editor, Creating Menstrual Health, London, 2010

I have been amazed at the wonderful things that have been happening to me with this new awareness of my cycle.  Marisa Findlay, Brighton, Feb 2010

I've been keeping my menstrual journal since the course I attended and am really getting a lot out of it. I've also been speaking to the women I know, and in doing so, encouraging existing interest or sparking new thoughts, it's all very exciting and feels full of something... like, potential? Power? Not sure, but I feel very strongly that this is an important part of the new stage of both my life and the future, for us all. Katy Jockelson, web developer.

I just wanted to express my deep gratitude for the wonderful knowledge and experience which I gained from attending your workshop last Saturday in Brighton. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I booked my place but I can tell you that it exceeded all my expectations and I know that my friends who attended felt the same way. Since Saturday I have been filled with new energy, hope, inspiration and power. I seem to be getting more out of each day and feel happier and thankful to be alive and in charge of my destiny and life choices. So thank you. Something has definitely shifted Cherith Loane Brighton Feb 2010

The workshop content, the skillful facilitation of it, listening to other woman experiences guided me to have profound insights, and I would say that this was the case for the whole group. You threaded together your deep knowledge for this subject with humour, compassion and a contagious passion. A big heartfelt thank you….the next day after the workshop I felt really optimistic about how to manage my life more efficiently and at the same time connect with my inner wisdom and power. Just one day of exploring my cycle brought me to this place - powerful stuff! I feel like I have returned home!  Sundari Falconer, mother and Structural Yoga Therapist
