Hello my lovelies,
A quick admin note for anyone wanting to order products- Moon Times will be closed over half term from Feb 23th- 28th, all orders will be processed after then.
Well I’m still processing all the amazing tools I learned on the Fertility Massage training (I urge anyone interested to do this course!!) and I’m sitting with where it maybe taking me…I am sure I will be incorporating it into my work with peri menopause and menopause and bringing it in to an Honouring of the Womb on its journey to holding the wise blood within.
I also want to flag up this amazing book….the third in the “Bare Reality” Series, this one entitled Womanhood- See the guardian article here The #vaginarevolution continues!
Vagina, vulva, lady garden, pussy, beaver, cunt, fanny… whatever you call it most women have no idea what’s ‘down there’. Culturally and personally, no body part inspires love and hate, fear and lust, worship and desecration in the same way.
From smooth Barbie dolls to internet porn, girls and women grow up with a very narrow view of what they should look like, even though in reality there is an enormous range. Womanhood departs from the ‘ideal vagina’ and presents the gentle un-airbrushed truth, allowing us to understand and celebrate our diversity.
For the first time, 100 brave and beautiful women reveal their bodies and stories on their own terms, talking about how they feel about pleasure, sex, pain, trauma, birth, motherhood, menstruation, menopause, gender, sexuality and simply being a woman.”
I’ve got just 4 of my Cycle Charting Books left- these are on Sale as I’m updating it and will be releasing a new smaller version soon!
Other books in stock, Menarche, Moon Time, Thirteen Moons, Menstrual Doodles, Womanrunes, Daughters in Flower…
I posted this up on Instagram as I was tidying our Red Tent Library at the weekend….pop over and tell me what’s your favourite ‘Menstrual” book?
