Transforming the Menopause Stigma
With Melanie Wartho
This workshop is open to women of all ages and will deal specifically with our time before, during and after menopause.
The menopause, like menstruation, is seen as a burden, something that we shouldn’t discuss except in negative and unhealthy terms.
The intention of this workshop is to dispel the myths surrounding menopause and to help us to find the immensity of the new powers as healers and grandmothers that we have access to, when we know how to find it.
Too many times have we heard comments from women about their fear of the menopause before they have it along with women who see the menopause as a bad thing and therefore relate to any symptoms they may have as purely difficult, and those women who believe that now they are menopausal, or that when the menopause comes, their life has no meaning and that they are barren and therefore worthless with a life that will be empty.
Now is the time to relearn the positive truths about ourselves as menopausal and post menopausal women.
This workshop is specifically for you if you recognise any of the above feelings either in yourself or someone close.
