DISCOVER THE DRAGONESS™
HARNESSING THE POWER OF YOUR MENOPAUSE
3 x 2hr online workshops
This alternative look at the menopause is dedicated to women who are undergoing this incredible time of transition. You are extended a very warm welcome to these workshops of empowerment, healing and self compassion to harness your own incredible, natural power during this creative time of life.
In this uplifting and positive approach, we come together to share our own stories and experiences of menopause and, by exploring various traditional medicine and holistic approaches and learning simple, practical exercises for self healing and support, you will discover how to strengthen your voice, energy, confidence, presence and value in an increasingly youth-focused society.
The workshop includes:
Exploring the effects of societal and cultural perceptions of the menopause
Common definitions of women’s roles and how they can adversely impact self care
Plant medicine ceremony for clearing the path for a new perspective of personal power
Reconnecting with Goddess energy for restoring and strengthening self acceptance
Meditative practice to help heal the wounds inflicted by restrictive or damaging generational and societal definitions
Naturally supportive approaches and holistic techniques for reducing stress, anxiety and fatigue and encouraging relaxation

This workshop is open to all women who are experiencing the female biological reality of menopause, no matter what age you are. It is also open to those experiencing pre and peri menopause and is also suitable for, and may be very useful to, women who are clinically considered post menopausal. It is a safe space for women with these lived experiences.
Your Dragoness Facilitator
The workshops are facilitated by myself, Andrea - Flourish's Medicine Woman. I am a Holistic Medicine Specialist, Shamanic & Psychic Healer, Reiki Teacher and Therapeutic Horticulturist and have been working in the field of holistic medicine for over 20 years - you can read a little more about me here. I have personally experienced my own transformative menopause - it is not easy but a graceful, compassionate, loving menopause is possible! My own experiences were the motivation behind my creating these workshops; conventional medicine could offer me nothing, not even transparent accurate information on what I was going through. This is not uncommon for women, as a recent survey* conducted by The British Journal Of Family Medicine shows that only half of the healthcare professionals who responded had previously received any training in the menopause. While the respondents agreed that support for menopause should be at primary care level, only 66% felt confident in managing the menopause. These are truly staggering statistics which indicates that not is there a strong disregard for women's health needs but also a deeply rooted institutional misogyny.
I support many menopausal clients, who were the inspiration to get working to create these unique workshops, with the intention of both positively supporting women and encouraging the empowerment that autonomy of our own health can bring.
