Menopause is a naturally occurring event and can be life-altering as your body and spirit undergo a radical transformation, yet so much is unknown, feared or misunderstood. Thankfully now more women are talking about the menopause, there is less taboo and shame. All transitions are challenging, and the journey through menopause can be bumpy at times, with experiences varying hugely from woman to woman. Your own menopause experience is unique to you, and valid. Your own approach is best, menopause really is an inside job, nobody else can tell you what to do, or do it for you. With information you can feel empowered to make choices and by integrating self care and self awareness practices you can be guided by your inner feelings and intuitions. Listening to yourself and respecting yourself is key to avoiding overwhelm and understanding which information is relevant for you.
We hope that by participating in this workshop you will be more informed and able to reflect on what you have learned, validate your own relationship to the menopause, and have tools and techniques for practising self care to help you manage challenges and access the positive gifts of the menopause.
