Through welcoming the first signs of inner change that stir her wise whisperings we will explore how to consciously embrace the sacred mystery of this natural transformation. And through honouring the grace and strength of the menopausal woman we will celebrate her awakening power.
Welcome to “DAWNING OF WISDOM ~ Beginning the Journey of Menopause”… This is the first of a series of courses with Sophia that consciously embrace the deeper spiritual purpose of menopause. Through focusing upon the initial dawning of the menopausal call to wisdom we will explore the mysteries, joys and fears of this profound change. We are living in a society that dishonours, denies and ignores the sacred beauty, integrity and purpose of the wise woman elder.
When she is disconnected from her inherent place upon this earth she cannot fully embrace the uniqueness of the wild wise woman. Throughout four weekly lessons we will explore the myths, both true and false, that enhance or inhibit a woman’s experience of menopause. We will celebrate the joy that arises when this powerful dawning of menopause is honoured as a sacred spiritual pilgrimage.
We will explore woman’s innate affinity with the rhythm of the moon and how this deepens and transforms as her inner journey of menopause unfolds. And we will honour this important phase of her life with the surrender and grace of an open heart.
LESSON ONE ~ AS IT IS IN THE BEGINNING - Wise Woman of the Moon… The first gentle whisperings and/or the first tumultuous earthquakes are beginning. They are shifting her ground, unravelling her conditioning, urging her to change. And they are shaking the familiar regularity of her moon cycles inside out and upside down. Her inner menopausal muse is revealing the fears, taboos and expectations that need to be faced. And a compelling desire for space and solitude is infusing her being.
LESSON TWO ~ LETTING GO - Diving Into the Unknown… Her identity as lover, mother, wife, career woman, sister, friend is transforming. Her inner menopausal muse is singing her song, dancing her dance, haunting her dreams. “Come with me, be free, dive into the vast cauldron of your menopausal fire. Open your heart, your womb, to my power. I will shake your foundations. And I will ask you to let go of everything that no longer supports my enticing call for change.”
LESSON THREE ~ WELCOMING THE DARK GODDESS -Arising of Power… She stands upon the brink of her well of wisdom, of her abyss of change. She can no longer compromise. This journey promises to be unlike any other. Dare she stand naked before the Dark Goddess, She Who Knows All? Dare she open in joyous surrender to this energy of her arising power? Dare she fully embrace this precious gift of menopause as sweetly as she embraces her lovers, her children, her friends?
LESSON FOUR ~ WOMAN of WISDOM- Her Wild Wise Ways… Woman is bestowed with profound wisdom when she consciously surrenders to the burning fire of her menopausal transformation. She becomes wise through intimately listening to the natural instincts and intuitive knowing of her female psyche throughout this mythical quest… How can she bring forth her inherent wildness and wisdom and find her true place upon this earth? How can she become free?
COURSE GOALS: The goals of this course are to honour and support the first signs of inner change that the powerful transformation of menopause brings into a woman’s life. This course aims to deepen, to awaken, to nurture, to inspire her as she opens to her menopausal journey. Within a heart opening space of acceptance and trust this course aims to help her welcome the initial steps of her menopausal pilgrimage. Here she will learn to surrender to the wisdom of her female body and psyche as she prepares to journey ever deeper into the powerful realm of menopause.
COURSE PROJECT: Throughout the duration of this course each student will be asked to create a collage using colours, textures, shapes and symbols that have unique meaning to her as an awakening woman of wisdom. This collage will symbolise and portray the beginning of her menopausal journey. More details of this project will be given during the first lesson…
