Wisdom of the Cycles

Wisdom of the Cycles – remembering & rerooting our cyclical nature, a workshop for men & women with Ayla Willow

SUNDAY | 13:30 – 15:00 | USHTI KUSHTI

In this workshop we will explore a map of the cycle and see how they all mirror each other, ultimately offering a compass for understanding our cyclical nature – particularly some, who embody this cycle with the menstrual cycle. Through this shared understanding, women know themselves more deeply and men can also expand their awareness of what happens as the cycle within a woman constantly changes moment to moment, day to day and how we can support each other with honouring the sacredness, deeper meaning and purpose of the menstrual cycle. The embodiment of our cyclical nature in the menstrual cycle impacts us all whether we pay attention or not, imagine a world where we do understand it and hold it with the respect and reverence it deserves and requires, it has the potential to change the way we relate to ourselves, each other and the world.
