A Woman's Life 

As Menopause Lurks in the Background

“We can’t acknowledge what we can’t talk about.”

Menopause marks a significant life transition for women.  For some of us, it can be a time filled with fear and loss. While for others, it can be a welcome end to menstruation.  

 

If you were lucky as a teenager, someone sat you down and talked about menses. But, who had the 'menopause talk' with you? Who told you about what it would do to your relationships with family,  your career and most importantly, with your self-confidence.

Unfortunately, menopause is also a not a well-understood concept for many medical practitioners, and it takes the blame for many of our life stress.  This workshop is over 12 weeks and is designed to give us a safe place to really look at what menopause has given and taken from us., with other women.

Come prepared to talk about ...

  • The value of mindfulness

  • What change and grief are

  • The inadvertently passed on bits of “misinformation” we learned about menopause

  • The myths of loss and grief

  • The losses we have experienced in our lifetime

  • The losses most impacted by menopause

  • ​And write about what has been left unsaid

  • Menopause in the workplace

  • The power of vulnerability 

  • Cultivating self-care, gratitude, and creativity

  • Letting go of the need for certainty and what people think of us.

  • The agreements we commit to our future selves

This program is an online workshop format and is spaced over 12 weeks at approximately 90 minutes per week. Each week you will receive small video access or reading material that will be used in our online workshop.

This will be challenging work for some of us. So, please come with an open mind and an open heart.

Now she is here to help other women explore life  - as menopause lurks in the background.
