with Amy Draper

Menstrual cycle awareness is all about people who menstruate understanding and working with, not against, the natural and consistent energies of each cycle. It’s brilliant, eye-opening and game-changing. The more I’ve engaged with this, both as a menstruator and someone who leads creative processes, the more it hasn’t made sense to exclude it from other wellbeing practices.

This workshop explores how to run a menstrual cycle aware process to benefit both your participants and the work. It will demystify, provide language to use and give confidence to talk about this, incorporating:

  • Fears and taboos of bringing menstrual cycle awareness into the workplace
  • The Inner Seasons – an outline of the different monthly energies
  • How to harness these as an individual creative
  • How to run a team or a room with this and menstrual wellbeing in mind
  • Further resource list
