London, 297 Hoxton St, London N1 5JX, UK
About the event
***ticket includes drinks & food & music from 6:30pm until late - talk starts at 7:30***
“Let's start with a wild idea: as a woman you are coded for power, and the journey to realising the fullness and beauty of that power lies in the rhythm and change of your menstrual cycle.” Wild Power
“The menstrual cycle's not the problem - rather, it's a culture that says women should be a certain way and not another.” Wild Power
Let's also reframe the idea of monthly bleeding as just a biological process for childbearing, instead seeing it as part of a bigger cycle which women can harness to listen to their bodies, understand their emotions, and use to their own advantage.
So excited to have Isobel Ripley, a FAM (Fertility Awareness Method) educator and all-round inspiring menstrual awareness advocate talk about her own journey, finding agency in the cycle, and why this knowledge will change your life !!
Men, this concerns you too !! We need more men who are aware of the menstrual cycle and who don't run away when they hear the word 'period', men who aren't scared of women coming into their power and who want to help integrate this knowledge into society.
We’re going to be back in a smaller, more intimate space like our first event, creating real conversations and exchanges which is what this project is all about !
Location still TBC, but it will be either in Hoxton or Spitalfields, with natural wine and other drinks, and delicious finger food.
See you there <3
