A Nine Month Journey
Do you want to change the way you and other women experience menopause?
Are you looking for tools to help you make the most of the natural changes that occur during menopause?
Do you feel that there is more to menopause than we have been led to believe?
Are you sick of women’s life transitions being seen as symptoms to be healed rather than doorways to growth?
Do you want to reclaim this powerful transition ?
Do you want to become a wise elder?
Do you believe older women have in important role to play in the changes our world needs at the moment?
Can you see yourself teaching other women how to empower themselves during menopause?
If you have answered yes to these questions read on!
In truth, menopause is the powerful transition to becoming a wise crone.
To make the most of this journey of birthing ourselves into our true, powerful authentic selves and midwifing others, women need information, insights and tools, which this workshop offers.
More than anything right now, our global and local communities need wise, mature women leaders and healers.
With the right tools, a woman can transform her experiences into wisdom, instead of mourning what she is leaving behind. If a woman is able to live the journey to menopause as a passage to her true maturity, she can embrace the wise woman she is becoming.
Aroma and the Alchemy of Menopause workshop will give women the tools to turn inwards and transform the way they view this phase of life. Using Jungian concepts and aromatics, this workshop leads women through the alchemical stages of menopause.
Through creative exercises, it helps women see their needs and experiences during peri-menopause in a new light that makes this an empowering and transforming journey that will help you to:
- Set intentions; define your motives and desires.
- Define and identify the experiences that are going to be transformed into your wisdom.
- Unveil parts of your Shadow, revealing your hidden strengths and talents.
- Work with your inner masculine and explore this sacred relationship in depth. When the preparative work has been done, the seven alchemical stages will guide you deeply and profoundly into your true authenticity and power, revealing the messages and experiences that lie behind hot flashes, night sweats, emotions and sexuality, transforming menopause into an exciting, empowering, transformative rite of passage.
