Last month, we had the amazing honor to sit with Bex Tyrer and dive deep into the wisdom of the menstrual cycle.
Unfortunately we had a glitch with Zoom and were unable to recover the recording of our time together. 💔
However Bex, such a beautiful spirit, wanted you to have it so much that she re-recorded the session just for you. She also wrote a beautiful note with suggested reading and amazing insights which you can read below.
You can re- watch the session here:
A note from Bex:
Thank you so much for your participation in The Wisdom of the Menstrual Cycle session.
For those of you eager to go deeper into this work, I have an upcoming online course: Moon Month. Which has 40 practices (10 for each of the 4 seasons) which is aimed to support your path of menstrual cycle awareness.
The course is self-paced with unlimited access, but it starts on the 1 st of October with a welcome introductory call. The last day of the Early Bird Price is the 21 st September. If you have any other questions then just let me know :)
For in-person courses, check out my “Women ReWilding” 100-hour TTC at the Yoga Barn from 7- 16 th December, where we take a deep dive into many of the topics we introduced in our time together.
In regards to follow-up resources I promised…here are some suggestions to get you started:
Uma Dinsmore Tuli: Yoni Shakti
I consider this my Yoga Bible. Amazing piece of work by a wonderful teacher and woman. It is huge but it is also a very accessible read. Many of the practices we will do are inspired from here, so this would be a wonderful resource for you to have.
Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer: Wild Power
A life changing book if you weren’t aware of the magic of Menstrual Conscious Awareness. We will explore this throughout the course. The “Red School” deck of cards is what I used during the slide show.
Naomi Wolf: Vagina - A New Biography
Another incredible book for understanding the connection between a woman’s
empowerment and her Yoni! Including the link between creativity and sexuality, healthy intimacy and pelvic organ health.
Emily Nagoski: Come as you are
Emily dives deep into sexuality and intimacy. Her work can help to make sense of how complex and utterly incredible the female body is.
