Event Description: Speakers:
Beatrix Angelika Iseanna Turrentine (German).
Title: Menopause – A Female Blessing to Move from Dictatorship and Democracy into Anarchy.
Description: In my experience Menopause offers the space to pause and reflect upon the life we have led up to this point. We are able to go back to the root cause of our individual wounds during the dictatorship of our childhood, moving into the bending and twisting of ourselves as employees, mothers and wives, having followed the majority rule of democracy. A time to find compassion for ourselves, to move into the blessed time of anarchy, of complete responsibility of one’s self.

Lorna Pellet (Scottish).
Title: The Energetic Vibrations of The Menopause.
Description: Having had a positive, valuable and informative relationship with menstruation, the menopause was an emotional and biochemical cataclysm through experiencing changes in hormonal and the nervous system (dis)regulation. These surges and shifts in emotional and biological systems gave the opportunity to open up old wounds, old beliefs and unhelpful triggering behaviours. Her experience was infulenced by Hawkin's Consciousness chart as a metric to evaluating, understanding and enhancing her wellness and consciousness. The experience brought her closer to womenship through the inquiry into pain and purpose through processing small t and big T Traumas and to sit in stillness with the pain. Choosing meditation over medication and an arsenal of non negotiable rituals has seated Lorna in a deeper experience of joy, peacefulness and acceptance through the work on processing and flushing the pained mind-body

How she was able to explore at all levels the misunderstandings, misconceptions, of the patriarchal-led medical system. She will speak of the understanding she has gleaned of the hormonal effects on the psyche. The journey of many women, which can be most solitary and challenging.

Description: Aoisanam will speak of her personal experiences with these times of transition and transformation. In her journey early symptoms of menopause announced themselves when she was in her early forties.

She will invite you to open to the possibility to see these turbulent times of change as a catalyst to shape shift into a truer version of yourself.
