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.
Welcome to Red School
(Previously Women's Quest)
We offer a new paradigm in women's development that is central to girls' and women's health, psycho-spiritual growth and women's leadership. Our radical new approach is based on the inner knowledge of the menstrual cycle and the developmental journey from menarche to menopause and beyond.
Most psychological and spiritual disciplines are created by men but do not speak to the fullness of who we are as women. We come coded with our own 'practice' or Way—the menstrual cycle. While there are many wonderful disciplines and practices available for women, none are a sufficient substitute for what may be known through the menstrual journey.
Through the dynamic of the monthly cycle culminating in the transition of menopause a woman is able to develop an inner practice for healing, realising her personal potential and maturing a rich spiritual life. She is uniquely tutored in the nature and power of The Feminine, a force needed more than ever today. This work has ancient roots freshly articulated to meet the needs and conditions of our time.
Alexandra and Sjanie, founders of Red School, would like to invite you to join us to rediscover and co–evolve a new conscious way for women. Taking this journey can transform many areas of your life—health and wellbeing, life and work management, creative and spiritual life. It is a vital tool for any woman who wants to live her life with depth and meaning.

You can embark on it in a number of ways by:
Getting to know your own cycle
The simple act of charting your cycle—respecting and cooperating as much as you can with its changing rhythm—will begin to create greater tenderness towards yourself, more effectiveness in your daily life and may surprise you with some lovely insights. To get you started why not sign up for our FREE Menstrual Cycle Literacy online programme.
with the Women's Quest Workbook
The Women's Quest Workbook is a 13-session self–guiding course specifically designed to initiate you in to the hidden powers of your body over 13 menstrual months. Each menstrual month you focus on a different aspect of the cycle, each session building on the one before.
Coming to one of our workshop
Although a women's body comes coded with her very own custom made spiritual practice, centuries of oppression of women's knowledge, the cultural devaluation of the Feminine and the loathing of menstruation have meant that we have been locked out of this inner practice. We have lost the language and 'sight' to unfold its powers. At our workshops, retreats and training programmes you will begin to find again the means to realise this uniquely female path of psychological and spiritual development for yourself.
