Discover the Liberating Power of Menopause toAwaken Authority, Purpose and Belonging
By Alexandra Pope & Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer
Founders of Red School
It’s time to de-bunk the myth…
What if menopause is not a disaster waiting to happen?
What if it isn’t the problem at all, but rather a culture that says we have to be a certain way and not the other?
What if the critical, provocative energy of menopause is actually a sign that you’re coming to your senses?

Join us as we re-write the cultural story of menopause, together.

Menopause is an immense life event, a great initiation.

Not only is it a complete hormonal shift in the landscape of your physical and overall health, it’s also a psychological and emotional transformation.

Menopause is searingly powerful – and this power awakens great potential. However, this power is currently being subsumed and lost under a sea of distress and suffering.

But what if understanding menopause’s power was actually the key to transforming that suffering?

In our new book, Wise Power: Discover the Liberating Power of Menopause to Awaken Authority, Purpose and Belonging, we tell a radical, new story of menopause.

It’s a story of initiation: through trials, tribulations and tears into freedom, love and inner authority.

And importantly, it’s a story about how your conscious menopause is a gift to the future. It all begins with the simple act of consecrating your menopause as a holy event. This shift in your perspective of yourself in menopause is igniting a global shift in consciousness that our world is desperately longing for.

About Wise Power

Wise Power is a revolutionary guide to harnessing the transformative power of the menopause and realising the creative potential that is awoken through it.

It’s time to redefine menopause. This pivotal time of life is often mistakenly viewed as a health crisis that is ‘suffered from’ or ‘coped with’ – but we need to start recognizing that menopause is a sacred rite of passage and an initiation into leadership, power, and transformation.

The misinformation and myths around menopause can leave us feeling ignored, misunderstood, and hopeless – but this trailblazing book illuminates the potential and power of menopause, and explains why we need to embrace this calling for the sake of the world.

When you read Wise Power, you'll discover:

  • The five phases of menopause and how to navigate them and receive their unique gifts
  • Prepare for menopause through each life stage, from menarche to your final menstrual cycles
  • Practical signposts and exercises to help you find your true purpose during menopause
  • Chapters on perimenopause, relationships, post-menopause life, and more
  • Menopause self-care resources to nourish and support your mind and body
  • How to embrace the rhythms of your postmenopause life, unlock your true potential and step onto your path of power and leadership.

This essential handbook is so much more than a guide to menopause. It’s the catalyst for deep transformation; a source you’ll keep coming back to, time after time.

Praise For Wise Power
It’s more than time that women began having new conversations about menopause, telling each other stories about beginnings, not endings. Wise Power is a rich, inspiring and practical guide to navigating this time of bone-deep metamorphosis – a thoughtfully crafted map charting the new opportunities ushered in by this profound initiatory experience.

This book is essential. Finally a map and a guide for one of life's greatest initiations and greatest confusions for women. No longer shrouded in shadow, the path becomes one of courage and beauty, letting go and allowing. Instead of holding on to what we know, we are shown how to understand a level of spiritual emergence that can and should transform our lives into expressions of personal sovereignty and authority. What a blessing of a book.

Wise Power reveals menopause as a time of awakening and spiritual activation. Like an elder sister, Wise Power guides us through the five stages of the menopausal initiation so that we may celebrate our well earned wisdom and timeless beauty.
