The New Story of Menopause *Wise Power Series* (Alexandra & Sjanie)
Play • 1 hr 2 min

It’s time to re-write the story of menopause.

What if the critical, provocative energy of menopause is actually a sign that you’re coming to your senses?

What if menopause isn’t a health condition we suffer from, but that people in menopause you’re actually suffering from is a lack of recognition, respect and support for the profound initiation you’re going through.

What if, post-menopause, you are more needed than ever.

This is the first of our menopause summer series, in the run up to the launch of our new book, Wise Power.

We explore:

- The four old stories of menopause, and the new stories that honour and dignify this transition.

- The ‘emperor has no clothes’ moment that happens in menopause.

- Why our impulse to ‘burn the house down’ in menopause is actually very sane, and an important part of this initiatory process.
