Mining for Diamonds: Creating the Menopause Manifesto

  • St Ethelburga's, London 78 Bishopsgate London, England, EC2N 4AG United Kingdom (map)

Did you know that you can be peri-menopausal and fertile?

Did you know your womb shrinks after menopause to an almost prepubescent size?

Did you know that peri menopause can start in your early 40's and menopause is when you have not bled for a whole year?

Learn how this transitional period in your life might affect you physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Diamonds are created by immense pressure and time and are buried deep in the earth. As our wombs compress and ready them selves to cease bleeding I liken this to the creation of our own internal shining Diamond.

Spend a day exploring your feelings around this subject whilst looking at how History and Society may have shaped our views. By digging deep into our own world we can unearth the treasure our wombs have created and appreciate all that has shaped us and all that is to come when we live in our own shining light.

Understand what is actually happening to your body and various ways to support the process.

Spend the day with women of a similar age and together we can rewrite the story of how a woman of a 'certain age' might look or behave.

This workshop is a retreat designed to excite AND sooth you. This is what one woman felt about the day...

'Apart from the huge wealth of knowledge from Hilary, spending time with so many women who are all dealing with the same life event, but each with their own story was empowering and gave me a wonderful sense of community.

This event could only be improved by there being more of them.

If you want to broaden and deepen your knowledge of what is going on inside your body and mind with the most amazing teacher, surrounded by women who are going through the same thing, each coming from their own special viewpoint, then book this workshop! Hilary held and guided the group in a way that enabled some heartfelt sharing of experience and feelings and I came away feeling empowered and with a wonderful, nurturing sense of community that I have rarely experienced.
