‘Finally. It’s happening. Women are waking up to our real power –the power that comes through our physical bodies.Let Wild Power lead you to its very source.’
Did you know as a woman you are coded for power, and the journey to realising the fullness and beauty of that power – your Wild Power – lies in the rhythm and change of your menstrual cycle. The menstrual cycle is a vital and vitalising system in the female body, yet our understanding of and respect for this process is both limited and distorted. Few women really know about the physiology of their cycle, and many do not see it as an integral part of their health and wellbeing, let alone as a potential guide
to emotional and spiritual empowerment
‘We have an important story to share with you about this power within the female body. It’s a story that evolves every day as women consciously experience their menstrual cycle. As they step up to claim the cycle, they unleash a consciousness that dignifies women and holds all life sacred. This living body of knowledge is vital for us, and essential for our times.’ ~ Wild Power
Co-directors of Red School, Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer have developed a radical new approach to women’s health and wellbeing, creativity, leadership and spiritual life, based on the power of the menstrual cycle.
With combined experience in the fields of psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, coaching, embodied movement practices, teaching and facilitation, they are published authors and experts in the field of women’s wellbeing and spirituality. They are a very creative and productive partnership, bringing liberal doses of irreverent humour to their work.
Between them, Alexandra and Sjanie have spent 40 years exploring and learning about menstruality from their own deeply lived experience, and the collective knowledge they have gathered from working with thousands of women.
Pioneers in this field, they have created the most comprehensive and life-changing programme available to date. They are not afraid to take an outspoken position to help shift this outrageous taboo on women’s power.
‘The menstrual cycle is your ultimate guide to befriending yourself,and utterly relishing the full pleasure and authority of being a woman.’ ~ Wild Power
Reading Wild Power by Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer is to be initiated into a source of a profound power and wisdom, which for many of us perhaps was forgotten, but as we learn through this gem of a book, was never lost. From their decades of practice and studies in the realms of women’s cycles, with breathtaking generosity and luminosity, the authors guide us back to the humble authority of true embodiment. I believe this is the guidebook needed for these times, when millions of women are hearing the call to lead the way for humans to live in alignment, in collaboration and honouring of body and earth. I am profoundly grateful that this book is finally here. For the benefit of us all.
Wild Power is a beautifully conceived and articulated work on a subject long neglected yet actually central to women and society: the conscious and integrated experience of the menstrual cycle. The book charts a wise, healing, and holistic process of self-knowing and empowerment through developing menstrual cycle awareness, guiding the reader toward sustainable wellbeing grounded in the natural rhythms of the body and the seasons. If you follow the pathway described in this book, you will come to a deep understanding of what it means to really live your menstrual cycle, and your whole life will be radically enhanced as a result. Welcome to the full spectrum version of being a woman.
“The female body reconstitutes the world. And yet the very blood that makes that possible became the reason that we are less holy, less capable of holding positions of authority, or speaking on behalf of the divine. It’s time we remember that there’s no scripture more sacred than being in our own skin. Embodiment is our holiest spiritual path. And Wild Power paves the way.”
