How is your flow?
Hi Ladies! How is your menstrual flow? Is it easy or difficult? Heavy or light? Do you get cramps? What are your natural remedies/tools for your discomforts?
One of my friends actually has a facebook group called "blessed bleeders" where women share in all the horror they encounter each month. Clearly many women are suffering.
A few years ago I did a workshop for women only on remembering their divine feminine. One of the ceremonies that was facilitated was to celebrate the onset of menstruation for women. In our culture, it has such negativity around it. But once upon a time it was celebrated. Although fictional, a great book on the celebrations is "The Red Tent." Anyhow, there were several women in the workshop who had painful periods and after celebrating with other women the beauty of our moon time their pain diminished if not disappeared over the following months.
There's much more to easy periods than a ceremony however. Lets here how yours are...
