I struggle with fear and misinformation surrounding health and wellness, especially concerning the female reproductive system. We are taught that our menstrual cycles are a curse–that we should dread it–and that menopausal symptoms are unavoidable. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and it makes me worried about the future of womanhood.
We live in fear of “what-if” scenarios. What if I can’t conceive? What if I have cramps and heavy periods my whole menstruating life? What if menopause is unbearable?
Did you know that our menstrual cycles are a way for our bodies to detoxify? It is a valuable indicator of what could be out of balance during the previous month. The ancient ayurvedic text writes that the uterus cries when we bleed because it didn’t bear a child. I love knowing that.
As women now in our 40s, I feel that we have a disconnect from our authentic selves, fertility, menstrual cycles, and what it means to age gracefully. Reconnecting with what it means to be a woman has been vital in my life as I process my miscarriage, divorce, heavy periods, and sexual trauma. I didn’t heal until I took the time to connect with nature’s rhythms and my cycle. Only then could I uncover my past and embrace what it means to be a woman.
Ladies, we need to understand how to adapt to changes, welcome our bodies’ signals to heal, and surrender to their cries. We also need to fully explore our emotions, desires, urges, and the past.
It takes real courage to do things differently–to stop avoiding self-care, running from the past, pushing beyond our limits, trying to please everyone, and spreading ourselves too thin. Stop looking outside yourself for satisfaction. Connect with yourself and have the life you deserve to enjoy.
Do you want a life with more joy and less stress? Join me on a journey of education, supportive practices, and community. It is time to educate yourself and take action, and I am here to guide you along your journey.
Here is an outline of what will be covered in the program
Phase One: Hormones, Sleep, and Lifestyle
The first step is to understand what hormones are, specifically identifying the difference between stress and sex hormones. How do they work together, and when do they work against each other? We will dive deeper into supportive lifestyles, sleep, and optimal times to rest, digest, and move.
Phase Two: Nourishment and Nutrition
What does it mean to nourish our bodies, minds, and souls? Food, meal timing, and digestion are vital factors in our health. Even more, it is not just about food; relationships and lifestyle play a part in our overall nourishment too.
Phase Three: Mental and Emotional
Then we will discover the mental and emotional factors that play a part in our perceptions of our lives and engage in life practices to support their wellness. This will better our understandings of our emotions and how our bodies respond to the world around us.
Phase Four: Wholehearted living!
And finally, we will do a little soul searching through a wholehearted approach to living. What are our authentic voices? Do our lifestyles support or harm ourselves and others? We will implement philosophies such as non-harming, truthfulness, limiting beliefs, boundaries, and compassion.
Each phase is about 90 days. They will include:
- One hour private session with Kamie
- Monthly small-group check-ins. Groups are broken down into the three main seasons of life (fertility, menstrual cycle, and menopause). You may overlap and attend other groups if they apply.
- Monthly large-group meetings where we all come together.
- All sessions are recorded to share with the group and are not to be distributed to any other group or used for any other purpose.
- Assignments help with practices, building a personal routine, and journaling.
- Support from Kamie with any questions you may have. We will go over boundaries with this.
- Recorded lectures and sessions for you to listen to at any time, at home or on-the-go.
- Access to on-demand meditation and pranayama yoga classes.
- Access to Zoom for live yoga, meditation, and pranayama classes to support your practice.
- And more…
