Hello my dearests, I hope everyone is doing OK and not getting too caught up in the seasonal madness!
I’m feeling a little smug as we’ve decided as a family to simplify and celebrate Winter Solstice with a cosy fire, 1 gift each and just spending time together.
And please note we will be closed for our Holy Days from 18th Dec – 7th Jan 2019.
If you’ve been watching my social media pages you’ll see Ive been hash tagging all over the place #therealtruthaboutmenopause and #positivemenopause as watching the BBC One programme almost had me throwing things at the computer screen!!
If you missed my posts and want to know more about peri menopause/menopause then check out my blog below…. And if you’re thinking you’re too young to consider it, take my advice, the Journey of Menopause need to be planned and considered even if you’re in your 30’s! Knowledge is power, be prepared!
I’ve finally updated Thirteen Moons! It’s got 30 more pages of cycle charting info, some more healing stories and resources. So, there’s 4 versions…
Plus all diaries and calendars are on sale…and almost sold out!

While it’s all about #therealtruthaboutmenopause, my Broken Basket Woman Online teachings are open and on gift economy. Standing at the threshold of what our society labels ‘menopause’ can be a lonely and scary time. Something is changing. We are slowly wrapping ourselves in our cocoons and preparing for the Initiation into Wise Woman, knowing we will emerge as something different, a beautiful butterfly…but sitting inside the soup of the cocoon, in a place of limbo, a void, we can feel as if we are going crazy- becoming Broken Basket Woman and terrified we will not be able to weave ourselves back together. These teachings I am offering can help ground you in your transformation, give you reassurance and support you in emerging as the Wise Woman you are created to be!
