    The Healing Power Of Reclaiming Your First Period

    The Healing Power Of Reclaiming Your First Period

    Our First Period is a portal to our unique gifts, creative sovereignty and cyclical power.







    MELANIE SWAN











    Our First Period – or First Blood – holds the potential to have us feeling welcomed, valued and honoured for our cyclical nature, ability to birth consciousness and use our intuition and emotions to guide our decisions.







    If we don’t experience a version of this, we can experience shock, a lasting disruption in our menstrual cycle, shame of inhabiting a female body and the inconvenience of hormones & menstrual blood, disconnection from the womb and reproductive system (which has repercussions on our fertility later in life), distrust of our body, disconnection from our cyclical nature and intuition to name a few!







    This lack of being welcomed into this world a woman, can result in the maiden part of us becoming fragmented, with the distress from that time getting bound up in the body – stored for a later date when the psyche is resourced enough for all those emotions to process out and for the maiden to re-integrate into the now with all her gifts and natural essence.







    In this episode of The Sacred Womb Podcast I discuss how as adults we can revisit our first blood, retrieve our Maiden self, restore our natural gifts and recalibrate our menstrual cycle!

    Eradicating The Abuse Of Women in Yoga

    Eradicating The Abuse Of Women in Yoga

    Uma Dinsmore-Tuli is back on the podcast to talk about her latest initiative; The Yoni Shakti Movement.



    There’s a crowdfunding camopaign to raise money to fund a public awareness and public education campaing so that everyone is safe in yoga.



    We Talk About:



    The overt and covert ways women are abused in Yoga

    What enables covert abuse to happen and how it can be woven into the very fabric of yoga teacher training

    The culture of ‘by-standerism’, bullying and normalisation of abuse

    Corrections, being lined up like soldiers and everyone doing the same thing at the same time

    Devolving power of our bodies to people outside of us – where a woman’s body or cycles get in the way of the yoga practices

    How women of colour are treated and the yoga stereotype of skinny, white, rich yogi (nothing wrong with that, but that is what’s widely promoted).

    How our own shame of menstruation is keyed into and twisted.

    How Do We Weed Out The Disempowering Teachings In Yoga?

    Hear the voices of the survivors and allies

    Talk about this in a safe space and get support

    If everyone knows about it, then the perpetrators have nowhere to go

    Be educated to see and understand bystander culture

    Uma has put together:



    Womb Manifesto

    13 Warning Signs

    9 Calls To Action

    What We Can Do Practically



    Read the campaign kit and get it to your local yoga teacher

    Share information in the Yoni Shakti Movement Facebook Group – so we’re building a living network so that we actually have each others backs!

    Basically, if we’re all in this together, if we all talk about this with each other, then this can no longer carry on!

    Sharing Our Story with Structure & Safety

    Sharing Our Story with Structure & Safety

    On this incredibly important topic, Britt describes that ‘sharing our story in the presence of a compassionate and skillful witness can be incredibly powerful medicine for healing trauma.⁣



    AND…⁣



    From a nervous system perspective, telling a story the way it happened chronologically can further install the traumatic narrative in the brain and make symptoms worse.’⁣



    In this episode Britt shares with us what usually happens when a trauma narrative is told in order and gives really clear guidance on what to do instead.



    We talk about:



    Euphoric Recall and Traumatic Recall

    Telling stories in a healing way vs a re-traumatising way

    Dissociation as a helpful coping mechanism

    Setting the structure for sharing stories in a skillful way

    Tools to use if you’re an over-sharer

    A great question to ask the group leader if you’re thinking of joining a women’s circle
