Episode 3: How to Transform Menstrual and Menopause Shame

Our cycle has a built-in imperative to deliver us home to our deep, holy selves. Over centuries, the consistent denial and overriding of this knowledge has caused a subtle insult to the integrity of our beings as women, and menstruators.

As we each begin to restore the power of the cycle, we reshape our experience of ourselves, soothe our systems and release menstrual trauma. 

In today’s episode, wise author, grandmother and revolutionary Jane Hardwicke Collings is passionate, provocative and also funny - even as she busts through these long-held taboos, and heals collective menstrual wounds. 

Jane is the founder of The School of Shamanic Womancraft and was a homebirth midwife for 30 years. She says; ‘My own births have taught me who I am and what I am capable of. My menopausal experience has taught me to focus on preparing for the great, great grandchildren.”

In This Episode:
  • How menstrual shame lives in our bodies, and the impact it can have on our cycles, sense of self and mental health.

  • How to live and bleed shamelessly through the spiritual practice of menstruation.

  • How to heal the shame that can arise around menopause (and a surprising fact about the five other mammals who go through menopause, and how it serves their communities!)
  • Registration is now open for our 2021 live round of Menopause: The Great Awakener. Join us as we explore the five phases of menopause here.
