How are you today? I’m cycle day 8 and still catching up on rest after a busy bleed this time around, but feeling so connected to my body and this community of after chatting with my friend Nikki Zavitz. She shared an abundance of cyclical wisdom that I know will nourish you in your own journey, especially if you are a parent or searching for a community to belong.
In this episode, Nikki and I chatted about:
- our eerily similar menarche (first bleed) experiences
- how talking about our menstrual cycles is healing our ancestral lineage with our mothers
- how Nikki brings cycle awareness into her home with her 3 daughters and advice on how you can too!
- what the word Menstruality means to both of us
- what it is like to run a circle gathering and the transformation that happens in that space
- how revolutionary cycle awareness is and how it is for every body regardless of gender
If any of that is peaking your interest, tune in below.
