Episode 72: Following Intuition, Taking Retreat and Finding Your Path in Menopause (Lara Owen)

This bonus episode is the next in our ‘Wise Power Retreat’ series where Alexandra is interviewing people about what menopause revealed and awakened in them. 

Alexandra and Lara have been working alongside each other in this field for over 30 years. Lara is an author, teacher, researcher, consultant, mentor and an expert on the culture, politics and organisation of the menstrual cycle and menopause. 

She wrote one of the first books to be published about the power of the menstrual cycle, Her Blood is Gold, and is one of the leading lights in the field of menstrual and menopause education, sharing from an incredible wealth of personal experience, as well as academic research.

In This Episode:

  • How Lara worked with her intuition in menopause (including following the impulse to move herself to the south of France for a three year menopause retreat!).

  • How Lara moved with her menopausal grief at not having had children and how she made sense of her story, and embraced the gifts of her adventurous and creative life without children.

  • How Lara’s radical educational and cultural work around the menstrual cycle and evolved during her menopause transition, leading to her new masters-level course, Contemporary Menstrual Studies
