May Class Feature - Changing Woman: Journey Well through Menopause



Changing Woman: Journey Well through Menopause

Sunday, May 21
12–4pm

Even if you have been resisting the idea that you are going through “the change of life,” there is no stopping or avoiding the process. The shift from fertility to menopause is a profound yet sometimes challenging transformation, and there is great beauty and power to be discovered in the journey if it is engaged mindfully.

In this popular class, we will explore the terrain most often encountered by a Changing Woman—physical, emotional and spiritual. We will draw on a rich tradition of plant allies and other holistic techniques that can help ease our passage, to help us emerge with more vitality and potency than ever. Handouts will be provided; herbal teas and a generous sampling of beneficial snack foods will be served.

Class is limited to women currently undergoing or completing hormonal changes—or who suspect in their deepest hearts that they are. You are not alone, you are not going crazy, and you need not “fade away”!

Instructor: Carol Trasatto. Carol is an herbalist with 35 years of experience who has, herself, traversed the changes of the menopausal transition. Having crossed this lifestage bridge—personally and with hundreds of clients—she understands the process from the inside...and feels honored to assist other women through this often deeply emotional transformation. Contact Carol at nettlelove@gmail.com with any questions.

Cost: $75, $60 each if two friends register/pay at same time.
