Happy Women's History Month!
As we celebrate the history of women across the world, we also celebrate the most powerful yet delicate part of being woman--our menstrual cycle. In this blog post, we will get connected with our menstrual cycle, learn to work with our cycle not against it, honor our womb and body, and embrace what it means to be able to bring life earth-side. Tap into your own, unique internal rhythm and flow. Let's begin..
