Most people in their menstruating years are thinking about everything but menopause.
From balancing stress levels, to eating right, and learning how to listen to the messages of the body… most of us have our plates full.
But what if I told you that the way you are living NOW will directly affect your life down the road?
Then perhaps, making small, yet profound changes in your diet and lifestyle might not seem so frivolous or overwhelming after all…
But rather, an investment in the future of your own wellbeing.
I was a teenager when my Mother went through menopause. It was an agreed upon rule in our house to just steer clear of her, at all costs. From hot flashes to serious mood swings, menopause wasn’t an easy transition for her – or any of our family, for that matter.
And although symptoms associated with menopause like hot flashes, debilitating mood swings, and vaginal dryness is deemed as “normal” during menopause…
The transition doesn’t have to be so difficult.
Instead of waiting for ten, twenty, or thirty years down the road for when menopause happens, the key is to look at how we’re living our lives right now.
Although the modern, patriarchal world has normalized the transition as being difficult, horrible, or hard… many consider menopause to be a pivotal moment in a woman’s life, where she comes face to face with her true power.
If we are to claim the power menopause offers us, we have to learn how to take care of ourselves. And that begins long before menopause comes knocking on our door.
If you’re like me, you likely grew up without the guidance, education, and tools to understand the best way to care for your body…
And if we don’t know how to care for ourselves right now, how in the hell are we supposed to have the tools to set ourselves up for vitality LATER?!
Luckily for us, the wisdom exists – and I’ve invited renowned teacher Myra Lewin from Hale Pule, to share it with us.
This month, inside our Inner Circle Monthly Membership, we’ll be exploring the archetype of the Crone.
Myra will share traditional Ayurvedic practices and tangible, practical ways to start preparing yourself for the transition of menopause.
So whether you’re 30 or 50, this lecture will have tangible, practical wisdom for you.
Unfortunately, menopause seems to be largely overlooked by our modern medical system.
While there are new courses springing up everyday about ways to balance your hormones and reclaim your menstrual cycle or reconnect with the wisdom of your womb, there are only a few resources that dive into practical and natural ways to heal common complaints that arise during menopause.
Luckily, the few that do exist are high in quality, and I’ve rounded up my top 3 favorites to share with you today.
These books serve as wonderful resources for yourself or a gift for someone you love who is entering this phase of their life.
So without further ado…. Here we go.
