This course is for self identifying women who want to deepen our relationship with our cycles and nature’s cycles.
As women, much of our innate wisdom comes through our listening to our bodies. Our menstrual cycle is a very important gateway to access this wisdom.
For generations, women of all directions, of all colors, of all communities have been attentive to our cycles, to the origin of life that connects us all, one to another.
In this virtual course for women, we’ll explore the power of the menstrual cycle, the cyclicality that lives within our body and outside of it, the endless circle of life, death, and rebirth.
In this course we'll reflect upon:
the gift that it is to live in this body and the possibility to reclaim our innate wisdom and sensory literacy by paying attention to our cycles.
our sensual expression and the ways in which we explore and experience pleasure.
our relationships with the elements, with Earth, Air, Water, and Fire which are the basis of our existence.
the ways in which we listen to ourselves, to our emotions, and express our passion.
the possibility of cultivating and deepening our relationships with the earth, the food we eat, our bodies, and our voices.
the physical and energetic aspects of the four phases of the menstrual cycle, and
the relationships between the menstrual cycle and the medicine wheel of life - the seasons of the year, the sun’s course throughout the day, the phases of the moon, the stages of our lives, the energies of the four directions.
This course includes:
8 Weekly video lessons delivered to your inbox, which include guided movement work
Weekly practices which are clear action steps to create opportunities to relate to the work more deeply and personally
Live support sessions - one optional meeting per month to ask questions and share best practices
Invitation to in-person women’s weekends and other events especially for this community of women who share a common language about our relationships and our cycles.
Ongoing access to playlists for each week’s movement work

I've been guiding women and girls for over 20 years. Inspired by the indigenous practices of the women of the earth, I've traveled the world studying ancient wisdom.
My approach weaves my extensive experience as a Western educator with all that I have received from my teacher, Carmen Vicente, a medicine woman and spiritual leader from the Andes mountains.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I don't have my period?
Please note that this is not a fertility awareness course, and we are not tracking our cycles. We are working with the spiritual and energetic understanding of our cycles and our bodies in the larger context of the natural world.
Self identifying adult women who do not menstruate are welcome.
Women who no longer menstruate are welcome.
Girls who have received their first moon at least one year ago are welcome.
I have an irregular cycle. Can I still benefit from this course?
Absolutely. We are working with the menstrual cycle as a tool to deepen our connection to our bodies and to the cycles in the natural world. This perspective helps us to understand the importance of the cycle beyond its role in pregnancy and birth. We are working with a holistic understanding of women’s cycles as the basis of all life.
How much time do I need to commit to this course?
Each week a new lesson will be emailed to you, and you can do them on your own time. Beyond that, you will learn practices to help internalize the material in the videos.
