The world’s first leadership programme
designed for trailblazers, change-makers, nurturers and creatives
to embody your full authority and leadership
through the power of menstruality
… to the wisdom you know in your blood and bones. It’s time for each of us to unashamedly claim the power of the menstrual cycle and menopause and use it to serve and stand for Life itself.
If you have a longing in your heart to find your voice, take up more space and step into your authentic power, and you sense that your menstrual cycle and menopause holds the key…
If you’re feeling called to be a leader in the emerging field of menstruality, and contribute to the reinstatement of the Feminine in our world, but are feeling held back by fear or self doubt…
If you’re ready to commit to your calling and contribute in an even more meaningful way, but you’re not sure what the next steps are…
… this apprenticeship with menstruality will help you discover your Calling, embody your authority and find your natural leadership rhythm, with your menstrual cycle as your loyal ally. (And the best bit—your menstrual cycle and menopause process has a mission to deliver you home to your deep self—it will guide you in how to serve from a well-rested place.)
Knowing (or sensing) the power that lives within your cyclical nature
and curious to go deeper—perhaps a friend has shared how this work has transformed their life, and you want to experience this powerful homecoming for yourself.
Buzzing after reading Wild Power and Wise Power
feeling the truth and potential of menstruality in your bones and ready to follow the call to apprentice with your cycle as your tailor-made inner guide.
Suffering with menstrual pain, endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids
or other menstrual / health condition, and longing for holding, support and a meaningful context that can make sense of your (underworld) initiatory healing journey.
In your 40s and sensing a new power rising up
even as it may be uncomfortable and disconcerting—which is calling you to make the most of your final cycling years as a pathway to deeper purpose and authority.
Journeying through the great initiation of menopause
(or living your post-menopause life), and wanting to reclaim the power of your cycling years and embody the wise power of menopause more fully.
Longing to guide others through this work
to weave menstruality into your current offerings or become a leader in the field of Menstruality.
Feeling a clarion call to serve the Feminine
in our world through restoring cyclical consciousness.
… OR perhaps you don’t really know why you’re here
If so, you’re not alone—many have felt this way before you! We’re happy you’re here, trusting your gut and following the call.
We invite you to join us for the journey of a lifetime, to work with your cycle as your ultimate ally to realising your full authority and leadership/power, for the sake of Life itself.
The Red School Menstruality* Leadership Programme is an immersive training for teachers, healers, guides, artists, creatives, nurturers, trailblazers and culture-shifters who want to embody a radically new approach to leadership that is based on a cyclical model of development, and rooted in your lived experiences of the menstrual cycle**
This is the only comprehensive training of its kind in the world.
As a participant, you’ll join a powerful community of changemakers exploring and developing the exciting new discipline of menstruality—a discipline that is set to change the way we approach our wellbeing at all levels of personal and professional development, creative & spiritual life over the coming years.
* What is “Menstruality”? This word (originally coined by Jane Catherine Severn) describes the precise and multi–layered biological, psychological and spiritual system of evolution within the menstrual cycle and developmental journey from menarche to menopause and beyond into our mature years.
** If you don’t have a menstrual cycle, you can work with the moon cycle. The patterning is the same although the menstrual cycle is felt more deeply as it is an embodied process. If you are on the cusp of or have crossed the menopause, you will work retrospectively recovering something of your menstrual cycle story, understanding how the cyclical powers exist within you still and how to honour them, while also exploring this in the context of the transition of menopause itself. If you are pregnant or in early motherhood your exploration of the menstruality maps will support the initiation you’re currently in.
On a professional level, the Menstruality Leadership Programme will help you to:
* If you want to teach and coach in the area of menopause, you would also need to attend our Menopause: The Great Awakener online course.
Please note: we don’t teach you how to teach this material but rather support the awakening of your authority to do that.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRAIN AS A MENSTRUALITY TEACHER?
We will be offering a professional development pathway in the future. It will be an long-term intimate mentorship with Alexandra & Sjanie, and the Menstruality Leadership Programme will be a prerequisite. So, if you want to create a menstruality career and be at the forefront of the menstruality movement, the first step is to cultivate your personal relationship to menstruality through the MLP.
Red School’s Menstruality Leadership Programme is an initiation into a wholly new consciousness—one that is emergent, infinitely creative and organised by the dynamic of your menstrual cycle and your journey from menarche to menopause.
The programme is a highly experiential, immersive deep-dive, which can yield incredible fruit, if you’re willing to make a deep commitment to the process, engage fully and bring a desire to meet your edges in order to heal and evolve.
The purpose of this training is to evolve you into a leader in the menstruality field
This could mean you go on to:
At this point, you need not know what the future holds for you as a menstruality leader. The programme is designed to facilitate this clarity and knowing.
The programme will:

IMPORTANT NOTE: THERAPEUTIC RESOURCES
We aim to create a supportive and safe community within which you can explore deeply the inner forces of your body. However, such is the power of menstruality, we have found that the awakening to this work can sometimes be challenging and catalytic. It is therefore important that you have some personal development skills and your own therapeutic resources in place should you need it.

When you join the MLP, a portion of your fee will be donated to the Pachamama Alliance.Register Now
The Pachamama Alliance, co-founded by Lynne and Bill Twist, was born out of an invitation from the Achuar people in the Amazon to work in partnership with them to preserve their land and culture while bringing forth a new worldview that honors and sustains life. Their programs integrate Indigenous wisdom with modern knowledge to support personal and collective transformation, that is the catalyst to bringing forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet.
Hear Lynne's story of how the Pachamama Alliance came into being
through a vision she received during menopause.
