The menstrual cycle as secret weapon for thriving, soulful business
20th March 18:30-20:00 – Register here.
You are very powerful, provided you know how powerful you are. Come and join me in this refreshing journey into our powerhouse: the menstrual cycle. In this 90 minutes introductory workshop we will discover scientific facts that will change your perspective forever: the cycle is not only supposed to be pain-free, it is your best ally in your professional challenges. Its purpose is to give life to your ideas, projects and intentions – your creatures, not just children. Estrogen and progesterone are wired to help you succeed. If they haven’t already it’s because, just like breathing, they are extraordinarily effective when mindfully practiced. We will take a peek into the role and impact of hormones and neurotransmitters on our body and mind in each of the four phases of the menstrual cycle. I will draw it live for you to see there is a pattern. A pattern, or blueprint, that is mirrored in other biological and mind cycles which impact on our skills: design thinking theory, circadian clock, brain-default network and brain rest-activity. Cycle, body and mind literacy can help you enfold your full potential, creativity, resilience and deepest purpose in life, while having a blast and making a living out of your passion!
MEDULLA’S “WOW+HOW” MENSTRUAL WORKSHOPS (in English)
The menstrual cycle is the fifth vital sign, and not supposed to be painful.
Three workshops to learn how to use your cycle as a compass to dance the ups and downs of life: a navigation tool fully integrated in the richness, resilience and diversity of natural ecosystems.
Workshops can be taken individually or in bundle. We will work in small groups, max. 8 people. For info on registration, prices and location, scroll to the end of the page.
Important! It is your responsibility to make sure you have the basics covered before you register to advanced and for pro workshops. Experience limited to charting with apps is valuable but usually not sufficient. Questions? Drop me an email at email@example.com
WORKSHOP 1 – STRONG FOUNDATIONS – understanding the language
24 and 25 March – 14:00-19:00 (10 hours)
Physiology, chemistry and biology of the menstrual cycle and its hormones + charting and journaling + cyclical blueprint that permeates life + archetypes + women’s roles in ancient history.
We will learn how to chart biomarkers of the cycle and explore how hormones affect our body, our mind, our brain and our perception of reality with a clear, cyclical pattern. Anatomy will hold no more secrets for us and hormones will be revealed in all their potency, beauty and cunning woman-power. There is a power in understanding and being in your body, that cannot be told or taught, just experienced. This is what we learn to do here, in ways an algorithm will never ever be able to, with the help of quizzes, games, potions, lotions and plastic vaginas.
Then we will jump, like Alice, through the mirror: the menstrual cycle is but one of the many shapes of the cyclical blueprint that permeates life: breath, brain, circadian clock, moon, seasons are but some of its shapes (take a peak at autumn). They also share linguistics, iconography and energetic qualities. Recognising patterns and connections restores dignity to our bodies and emotions, and unleashes our authentic self and unlimited potential. It also helps you reframe pain, fear, anger, loss, failure and death so that they become your allies.
Last but not least, we will look at archaeological findings that tells us a surprising, little known story: the divinity used to be female, for over 10,000 years, and women were travellers, bringing technology and culture from village to village (at least in Europe, that’s a fact), while men stayed at home. This knowledge helps us restore our integrity, and will fill a knowledge gap that is so profound, it has become a collective conscience gap. Time to address it, do you agree?
WORKSHOP 2 – ADVANCED – decoding symptoms, transforming pain
19 and 20 May – 14:00-19:00 (10 hours)
Decoding symptoms + general maintenance through nutrition, exercise, life-style and self-care + ecological menstrual products + optimal contraception + premenstrual syndrome + women’s role today.
A symptom is a messenger. The problem brings the solution within. We will learn how to decode the language of symptoms, because the menstrual cycle is never the cause of problems, but the revealing mechanism. We will look at other organs and systems that affect and are affected by it, like the liver, the gut, thyroid, etc. and we will use the best scientific research to help you interpret the coded message of symptoms, and address them with meaningful changes in our life-style that build our well-being, resilience and release our creativity.
We will also look at ecological hygiene products (did you know that in a sanitary pad there is enough plastic to make four shopping bags?) and at old and new contraceptive methods: modern science has finally figured out a method, tested in the lab, that is completely natural and safer than the pill. The pill, on the other hand, may be depressing you, your libido, your digestive and immune system, and many other things.
Of curse we will dedicate time to the infamous premenstrual syndrome, to explore what it is and what it is not, how it manifests itself and how we can address it. We will talk about emotions, energy in motion, and how to avoid friction, fracture and traps. We will talk about genetics and epigenetics. We will see how much the social, political and economic conditions of women in the recent past still affect us, and how to build resilience and creativity out of it.
The introduction here provided is non-exhaustive and you will be surprised!
WORKSHOP 3 – FOR PRO (entrepreneurs, career women, anyone with an important business&study objective)
26 May – 14:00-19:00 (5 hours)
The menstrual cycle as secret weapon for thriving, soulful business – cycle literacy with Medulla
From tapping into raw creativity, top-notch networking and management, to insight and killer intuition, it is all within you. You are very powerful, provided you know how powerful you are.
In this workshop we will discover scientific facts that will change your perspective forever: the cycle is not only supposed to be pain-free, it is your best ally in your professional challenges. Its purpose is to give life to your ideas, projects and intentions – your creatures, not just children.
Estrogen and progesterone are wired to help you succeed. If they haven’t already it’s because, just like breathing, they are extraordinarily effective when mindfully practiced.
We will examine the role and impact of hormones and neurotransmitters on our body and mind in each of the four phases of the menstrual cycle. A pattern, or blueprint, that is mirrored in other biological and mind cycles which impact on our skills: design thinking theory, circadian clock, brain-default network and brain rest-activity. Cycle, body and mind literacy can help you enfold your full potential, creativity, resilience and deepest purpose in life, while having a blast and making a living out of your passion!
Important! To make the most of this workshop, you would need to attend workshop 1 and workshop 2 beforehand. You can still attend and benefit from it, but you won’t be able to ripe the same harvest. Also important: if you are on the pill you don’t have a menstrual cycle, but you can still come if you are planning to stop hormonal contraception in the future.
Price includes refreshments, i.e. herbal tea and fruit, and materials in electronic format.
