Winter Begins

How’s the weather outside where you live today? How’s the weather inside? Your internal climate? Have you ever imagined your menstrual cycle as flowing through the seasons of the year? Attention to our whole menstrual cycle is a powerful way to experience the seasons of life, reaffirming our potential to begin anew, create, transform, and […]

Midsummer Love!
