For Women

I often find myself talking to other women about issues around menstruation, there are lots of questions around menstruation and contraception especially that need to be addressed. Our Menstrual cycle mirrors nature and, when experienced consciously, can open many doorways through to a more meaningful and wholesome existence. Tapping into this innate wisdom is something that I am passionate about and I hope that these books help you to honour this great gift we have. 

Below are links to some resources and books that I have found helpful.

Uma Dinsmore-Tuli is a Yoga teacher rand trainer focusing on women health. Here’s what she says about Womb Yoga

“Womb yoga is my term for yoga to nourish every aspect of our lives as women, whether we have a womb, or not, whether we menstruate, or not, and whether we are mothers, maidens, enchantresses or crones!
Womb yoga enables us to re-connect joyfully with naturally arising inner wisdom, insight and vitality. It is both delicious and profoundly nourishing. It is healing and vitalising.
To practice Womb Yoga is to honour and embrace the original blood wisdom of your womb, or womb space energies, as the source of feminine intuition, connection, creativity and nurture.”

Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer are the founders of Red School and co-authers of ‘Wild Power’. What they say about their work and their new book…

“We teach a radical new approach to woman’s health and wellbeing; creativity and leadership; and spiritual life based on the power of our menstruality consciousness.
With combined experience in the fields of psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, coaching, teaching and facilitation, we are both published authors and experts in the fields of women’s health and wellbeing and spirituality.
Between us we have forty years of exploring and learning about  menstruality from our own deeply lived experience and the collective knowledge we have gathered from working with thousands of women in workshops, one to one sessions and passing conversation.”

Jane Bennett, Co-Authour of The Pill. She says about her work…

“I am passionate about offering girls and women the means to understand and have a positive and empowered relationship with their bodies, their fertility and their cycles: to be able to make informed choices and to have these choices respected. I believe that not only is this a good thing for girls and women, but also for those around them and society as a whole.”
