Know Your Cycle, Know Yourself with Lottie Randomly

Periods get all the attention, but what about the menstrual cycle as a whole?

Many of us grew up knowing the bare minimum about our cycles and were even taught that our periods were something to be embarrassed by. But what if the stories we were told weren’t true and our cycle could be an ally rather than an enemy in our lives?

In this session we’ll explore the rhythms of our cycles for deeper self-care and self-knowledge by:

  • Digging into the four phases of the menstrual cycle and considering their unique qualities.
  • Inquiring into how the menstrual cycle relates to the other cycles in the natural world and beyond.
  • Exploring where we struggle with our cycles and where we feel at our best.
  • Supporting one another to imagine what changes we could make both individually and collectively that might make our cycles easier (and possibly even pleasurable?) for us.
  • Considering the politics of menstruation and so-called PMS.

Whether you have a regular cycle or an irregular one; hate your period or love it; struggle with tough symptoms or breeze through each month – this workshop welcomes all experiences.
