About the event
This 3 ½ hour morning workshop is for mums/carers and their girls aged 10-12 years old. Puberty is a special time in a girl’s journey, rich with growth, change and discovering the world within and without. We know it’s not always easy having the puberty and period conversation. Many girls find it daunting and a little excruciating to put into words yet are full of questions.
Growing Bodies and Cycle Wisdom aims to gently unfurl the wonders of puberty and menstruation. We open up and normalize the conversation in a warm, safe and enjoyable way. First, we open the circle by checking in and ease into the morning with a gentle activity to create a safe container. We use story, activities, craft and conversation to guide us through the beauty and practicalities of the girls’ growing bodies and their menstrual cycle, using the four seasons as a metaphor for traveling through each lunar phase. After a delicious morning tea and chai, we look at the different products used for periods. We then present the anatomy in a fun, visual and interactive way with opportunities to ask questions both into the circle or anonymously.
This workshop is a beautiful opportunity to strengthen and celebrate the mother/daughter bond, to build trust, and openness. You will leave feeling connected and ready to support your girl as she enters her journey to womanhood.
