Join us as we share her-story and information, as well as educate and dispel myths and stereotypes around peri-menopause and menopause.
The Basics Series
A pivotal moment in a woman’s life, peri-menopause begins the transition that is culminated with menopause. Peri- menopause may begin in your mid 40s and you may not enter your wise woman years until your mid-50s. Some of us have the challenge of a medically induced menopause and have to navigate the transformation with little or no support. How you look after your self during the time approaching menopause can have a direct impact on how you experience the journey.
I invite you to be curious, and open hearted as we explore together this most maligned and least appreciated time of life. You will learn much to prepare you and sustain you through it all. Join me and learn about your body, your uterus, your hormones and how to move into a new aspect of being, from a body that bleeds, has bled and will now retain that sacred essence.
This workshop is for anyone who would like to live in their body with ease and prepare for the profoundly enriching rite of passage into menopause, for those who wish to look after themselves and a taster for those who have a professional interest.
What will we cover?
• The story of Dr. Rosita Arvigo and her work
• The traditional Healers who taught this work
• Simple anatomy and physiology of the belly and uterus
• Your Abdominal Massage, a simple and effective self-care treatment.
• Additional techniques to sustain you as you enter peri/menopause
What’s included and what do I need to bring?
The student investment for this class is £95, which includes a rich, four and a half hours of easy to access information including techniques to help you help yourself. After the class I will send you PDF’s with all you need to know and some useful resources. I invite you to create a comfortable space so that you are free to engage with this powerful work without distractions. Make sure you have made something delicious and nourishing to sustain you and bring plenty of fluids. A yoga mat and pillow may be useful although not essential. Have some massage oil by your side, this can be as simple as coconut oil or luxurious as your favourite body oil. A hand towel is also a useful addition. If you like to take notes then do, but if you like to just sit and enjoy the experience, that’s fine too.
The most important thing is to be cosy and comfortable. You will be massaging your own belly, so please wear loose clothes that you can have easy access to your abdomen, elasticated waists and easy to pull up tops are the way to roll on this class.
What happens next?
Once you sign up you will receive a welcome email and a form asking you to share your health story. You will fill in as much or as little as makes you comfortable. Knowing some of your story allows me to serve you better.
Please only sign up for this offering if you can attend in person. To be able to facilitate a safe space for everyone to share their story there will be no recording available after the event.
