Pre Menstrual Kindness

Rachael CrowMenstrual Health, Musings

Back in 2013 I wrote a blog post called “Take a Sacred Day Each Month” and as I’ve moved into my peri-menopause journey it’s become even more important to give myself much more self care and self kindness premenstrually. Whilst taking time out (if possible) is a good practice during your moon time, if you suffer from premenstrual symptoms, this … Read More

The Journey

While I was away on the Welsh Isle of Enlli I attended a short writing workshop hosted by the “artists in residence” who were a group of poets, writers and photographers. We took part in a few different writing warm up practices- one of them in which we were given a paper boat and we wrote where we were going … Read More

Broken Basket Woman

Rachael CrowMenopause, Musings, online teachings

Standing at the threshold of what our society labels ‘menopause’ can be a lonely and scary time.

Let’s talk about the over sexualisation of our girls

Rachael CrowMusings

One of my passions of working with girls is talking openly about peer persuasion, media pressure, expectations of society on girls and women….and I’ve been lucky enough to witness many girls becoming strong, healthy, self confident young women, with their own strong opinions and self assurance about how they meet the world.   Of course life can knock us off … Read More

Insights from the Womb Cave

Rachael CrowMenopause, Menstrual Health, Musings, Workshops

This month I had the spaciousness to fully drop into my Moontime Womb cave for a few days- no children, work, errands!! And the insights kept coming and coming….. I felt deeply connected into the Autumn Woman archetype- I call her the Enchantress or Priestess; she can be the pre-menstrual phase of the cycle, and the peri menopause phase of … Read More

Body Wisdom, what’s your body telling you?

Rachael CrowMenstrual Health, Musings

I know I’m always banging on and on about cycle charting and how empowering it is- of course its great to know your cycle for the obvious reasons of conception or avoiding conception, or perhaps just to keep track of your moods, knowing its your premenstrual week is always handy! But what I really love, is that by tuning into … Read More

Finding Support in Our Transitions…. Newsletter

Rachael CrowMenarche, Menopause, Musings, Newsletters, products, Workshops

Hello sweet sistars, Blue Moon blessings!  Well my peri menopause journey ramped up this month with more flashes and heavy moontime bleeding, it can be easy to fall into fear when ‘symptoms’ feel unmanageable and all the mainstream support out there seems to lead to HRT. So it’s important for me to connect with women in a similar place who also … Read More
