Episode 69: Claiming Rest and Working Soft in Menopause (Karen Brody)

For many years Karen, the founder of ‘Daring to Rest’ had many years of severe panic attacks. It wasn’t until she started a deep rest practice that she learned how to meet her anxiety with grace and she hasn’t had a panic attack since. 

During her menopause process, this devoted practice of rest enabled her to clearly feel her ‘no’ and ‘yes’ in her body, process the rage arising and listen for what she needed to navigate this almighty transition.

In This Episode:
  • How rest at menopause helps us to manage the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual can show up in the years running up to menopause, including hot flushes, insomnia, low energy, brain fog, anxiety, grief, and rage.

  • How rest enables us to feel the ‘No’ of menopause in our bodies, so that we can pay attention to it, act on it, and in doing so, make way for our next level ‘yes’.

  • Why rest is non-negotiable while we’re navigating the death and a rebirth initiation of menopause, and how to actually get it, even amidst the responsibilities of our lives (and the key is dropping any ideas of perfection).
