Happy New Year from all of us at Red School 🥳 May your entry into 2024 be full of everything you most long for.

This conversation with Alexandra and Sjanie today is especially for you if you’re very much in inner winter mode, we’re exploring a topic which we’ve been wanting to since the podcast began, which is the deep spiritual power of menstruation, and how it unfolds in five distinct phases.

Alexandra starts by sharing how she came to understand the five chambers of menstruation starting with a story with a lover in Stockholm, then together with Sjanie they map out the profound gifts of these chambers as a gateway to the 'inner temple' of menstruation.

In This Episode:
  • What to do if you want to explore the five chambers of menstruation, but are dealing with menstrual pain and symptoms - including Alexandra’s story of how the chambers were a key part of navigating her extreme menstrual pain.

  • The one key practice that opens up the way for the five chambers, even if you can only carve out 10 minutes to be with your menstrual process.

  • How to work with these five phases in other ways - such as the turn of the year that we’re all currently experiencing, as well as during the great inner winter of menopause.
