September 8, 2013, Woman, Her Cycle and Connection to Gaia: Looking at the Visibles and the Invisibles, at theWomen's Healing and Transformation Center in Abita Springs. In modern times, a woman menstruates an average of 37 years: that's about 480 cycles, or 2,500 days!And their partners, co-workers, neighbors and children experience it right along with them. It is SOMETHING WE ALLSHARE, yet don't share...to our detriment.Why do we leave unexplored this powerful rhythm within? A serious boater or beach comber would not think of being in or near the water without a knowledge of the tides.

This class was dedicated to connecting to the rhythms of this very important life event. This class is designed to look at this amazing bodily process in a new light, so that we can understand, connect, and empower ourselves and future generations.This class was inspired by the HBO show "Girls" to not let another generation of females go out in the world without exploring this very sacred aspect of our lives.
