**This class is intended for female bodied folks who are not on hormonal birth control or who are considering stopping hormonal birth control.**
Just as there are four seasons in a year, women experience four “seasons,” or menstrual phases—menstruation, pre-ovulation, ovulation, pre-menstruation—throughout a menstrual cycle. The menstrual phases are brought on by changing levels of hormones and each phase gives women access to different strengths and abilities.
We'll discuss how our "inner seasons" effect us physically, emotionally and mentally and how to use this knowledge as a tool to optimize and plan our personal and professional lives. We'll also cover charting basics for cycle awareness, pregnancy achievement or avoidance, and herbal remedies for a healthy cycle.
A copy of the Menstrual Calendar Journal: Track Your Cycle, Change your Life workbook is included (see www.kapu.community/track to learn more).
Taught by Veronica Ricksen
Veronica Ricksen is a clinical Western herbalist at the Ohlone Herbal Center and creator of Kapu, a holistic care company for women.
The creation of the Menstrual Calendar Journal began in 2015, when Veronica had to learn about her menstrual cycle and fertility after 10 years of being on hormonal birth control. After years of sharing all the knowledge and magic she gleaned from the practice of tracking her cycle with her friends, she decided to make a comprehensive resource for other women.
She hopes daily use of this calendar assists women in discovering the gift of the menstrual cycle, so they can live with more flow, ease and happiness.
