Your Guide on this Journey


Cathy Skipper smiling

Cathy Skipper is an international teacher, plant person and healer who brings 30 years of teaching, healing and plant experience as well as her highly attuned intuition and experience of ‘seeing the person within’ to this work.

I am excited to be your guide on this exciting journey of The Alchemy of Menopause!





At the end of this journey you will:


Feel more loving, accepting and grateful towards your physical body, as well as inhabiting it more fully so you can use your feminine qualities of intuition, imagination and insight optimally.

Reclaim your anger and be able to meet it with acceptance and understanding, so that it becomes a catalyst in your journey rather than something you feel you don’t have the right to feel.

Be able to feel in order to heal. Instead of running away from your feelings you will fully feel them more comfortably and gain insight and deep healing from feeling them.

Have gained a completely new language and perspective on what menopause means to women and how it can help us to grow and become more fully ourselves.

Have purged and let go of emotions and tensions that are holding you back from living your best life and feeling the self-acceptance, joy and clarity that you deserve.

Have found your voice and become one of the women in the world today who is breaking the silence around menopause and  are redefining it as an important initiation of inner growth and wisdom in a woman’s life.

Have connected with and built a relationship with your inner masculine, so that you become more whole and have healthier relationships with the men in your life.


The Alchemy of Menopause Online Journey includes: 


Guidance by Cathy: Monthly videos for 9 months guiding you into each month’s theme. The journey takes 9 months to complete, the same time it takes to grow a baby. This time we are not pregnant with another human, we are pregnant with a part of ourselves that is waiting to be born — Our wise elder selves.

The Journey:  This includes exercises, meditations, insights and guidance to lead you through this inner journey. The lessons are sent to you weekly via email, because that way, you can’t skip ahead. It really does feel like a process and a journey. Don’t worry if you are taking more time on a lesson or something comes up that prevents you working on the material that week. You can take as long as you like to journey along the course once you receive the emails.

A Complement to the Journey: A full-color PDF version of “The Alchemy of Menopause” workbook. The online journey goes much deeper and covers different material than is in the workbook. The workbook is a complement to the online journey. It is also great as a teaching aid for those of you that want a practical guide for carrying on this work with other women in your communities.

A private Facebook group for sharing and exchanging with myself and other participants. This Facebook group has become a vibrant and active place where women share useful information, their stories, their ups and their downs and support each other.

A Certification on completion of a final piece that talks about an important part of the journey for you. This certification gives you the right to use the material and the workbook to facilitate women’s groups on ‘The Alchemy of Menopause’ within your own communities.

A Clay Goddess, handmade by Cathy from Taos Mountain clay and blessed for each woman is optional and can be purchased at the end of the class. I make the goddess individually for each woman that orders one and fire them in a pit fire here on the mountain where I live.

In this journey, I use a selection of 17 specially chosen oils for the work to help deepen connection with the unconscious. For those people who want to use the same oils, I offer a beautiful “The Alchemy of Menopause” kit containing 17 vials of these specially selected essential oils, with 20 scent strip in a velvet bag. However, you can take this journey and not use essential oils at all or to use your own oils.

Reconnect to Truth and Power

Guided by Cathy Skipper’s gentle wisdom, imagery and poetry and the transformative aromas of specially chosen plant allies I felt reconnected to the truth and power of myself as a woman entering my life through menopause and beyond. The ancient art of alchemy finds its true meaning in our personal journey – through passing the years of potential motherhood to uncovering our hidden strengths and wisdom and finally finding union within ourselves. We are shown the way through rituals of discovery and honoring, nurtured by beautiful aromas personally chosen by Cathy’s conscious travels along her own path.” – Karen

A Nuturing Space

“Cathy is an amazing tutor who has a deep knowledge of the work she is teaching. She has a wonderful ability to create a nurturing sharing space. For me the course allowed me to work deeper on areas that needed releasing and created a space for me to carry on my journey through menopause with a deeper understanding of my own body. I would recommend the course to anyone who is peri-menopausal, menopausal or works in women’s health.” –Anon

Birth Your Own Wisdom

“What a stunning collection of reflections, teachings, wisdom, rituals, and guidance through this stage of woman’s journey. Cathy is practicing profound midwifery to women interested in birthing their own wisdom, their own self, in this stage of life.” –Laren


It’s hard to describe Cathy Skipper’s Alchemy of Menopause class without using words like ”transformational” and ”life-changing”. This class gave me new perspective, connected me to my inner wisdom and power, and allowed me to work with other women (exclusively) in various stages in their lives, and to learn from and share their wisdom and experiences. This class reframes society’s depressing definition of Menopause into a positive, healthy acceptance and understanding of the shift in life and the celebration of all the good that can come of it. The use of essential oils and other tools takes the work to the next level and make it unlike anything else out there designed for women trying to understand and thrive in this stage in their lives. Using aromas for support, she taught us some deeply meaningful ways to begin gleaning the wisdom we want to carry with us into our Wise Elder years. This was one of the most empowering and encouraging classes I have ever experienced and I hold it dear to my heart.”  -Jane
