YOUR WISE WAY

A 10-Week Live Online Women’s Program
August 5-September 30, 2024

An Integrative Approach Through Perimenopause, Menopause & Beyond

Embark on a transformative journey through Your Wise Way, a ten week program designed specifically for women navigating perimenopause, menopause, and life beyond. A truly integrative approach combining ancient Āyurvedic medicine and modern perspectives. This program honors the sacred transition into the wisdom years, empowering you with the support and understanding you need to feel good now, not in some distant future.

The sacredness of menopause has been obscured in a culture that denies the cycles of life and gifts of aging. A culture which promotes over-stimulation, urgency, constant striving, and endless consumption. As a result, menopause is often steeped in fear and portrayed as something to loathe. Many find themselves traversing this transition feeling isolated, angry, shamed, or dismissed.

Menopause is an initiation that can carry you to a place of deeper sovereignty and meaning; embodying a sense of inner coherence and belonging. This program uncovers the spiritual truth of menopause while providing you the resources and remedies to embrace your evolution.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Menopause can be a homecoming. Do you want to feel prepared and empowered for menopause and beyond? Would you like to experience it as meaningful and dignifying, no matter how distressing your symptoms currently are?

The True Potential Of A Woman’s Life Cycle

Menopause is the great awakener. It beckons us to fortify our bodies, wake up to the truth of who we are, and to refine how we perceive reality.

This program will give you:

  • A deep understanding of the sacredness of your life and your transitions.
  • A dignified way to navigate your initiation and embodiment of what is true for you.
  • The physical, mental, and spiritual skills to thrive in perimenopause and post menopause.
  • Supportive practices, food as medicine, daily self-care, home remedies, treatment options, and meaningful insights, whether you are at the beginning, in the middle, or well beyond.

Your Invitation

Menopause is not something to fear but an initiation into the truth of who you are. It’s not a health condition or disease but a personal evolution. It’s not about losing it all, rather it is coming to your senses. You’re not past your best years; you are moving into the wisest season of your life.

Together, we’ll discover what’s possible, both individually and collectively. Menopause and beyond mobilizes us into a new, more expanded consciousness—a spiritual upgrade that aligns us with our true selves.

Are you ready to embrace this stage of life as a meaningful and empowering journey? Connect with a loving community and learn practices that will help you find your way home to your wise self.
