Everything in nature is moving in cycles; from the microcosmos’ of our bodies and psyches, to the macrocosmos of the Universe itself. By getting to know these cycles intimately we can flow more intuitively through life, in unison with the energetic flows of the rest of Nature.
In this web course, holistic women’s health expert Siri Kalla and astrologer Florence Devereux will explore the cyclic movement through forming an intimate relationship to two of Nature’s cycles: the celestial cycle of the Moon, and menstrual cycle in the female body - two cycles that myth and tradition have always woven together.
This journey consist of 6 hours of video material, divided over 6 sessions:
Session 1: Introduction and opening ceremony
Siri opens the space with prayer and a meditation. She invite us into the cyclic way of thinking, and speak about how a more cyclic way of being in relationship to ourselves and the Earth has been an integral part of ancient cultures - lost only in more recent times. She presents the idea that a return to an intimate relationship to the cycles of Nature is a necessary step in healing our relationship to both ourselves and the planet.
Session 2: Celestial Cycles
Florence initiate us into the mysteries of the skies - the concept of astrological cycles, and how they affect us. She introduce us to the Moon’s 27 days cycle, the energetical cycle of waxing and waning of our celestial sibling - the most archetypal cycle in the night sky. Florence will guide us through the different nuances of this cycle, and how it affects us in our daily lives.
Session 3: The Menstrual Cycle
Siri brings us along on a deep dive into how the menstrual cycles actually functions. She walks us through the physiological and hormonal changes going on each cycle in the female body, and guides us in forming an intimate relationship with our magical wombs. We finish with having a close look at the more energetic movement of the menstrual cycle - and how it is corresponds to the moon cycle and to other cycles in Nature.
Session 4: Living with the moon cycle
Florence presents us to the more practical aspects of charting the moon cycle - how to integrate a practice of following the moon into our daily lives, and how to know under which moon phase we were born and how that affects our way of relating to ourselves and others. She speaks about the deep gifts that can be accessed by befriending the Moon and her cycles.
Session 5: Living with the Menstrual Cycle
Siri guides us to how we can develop an intimate relationship with and knowledge about our own bodies and menstrual cycle - by the practice of Fertility Awareness charting and learning to recognise our physiological signs of fertility. She also introduce us into how we can create our own cyclical rituals, and how such a practice helps us embody our personal cyclical nature.
Session 6: A Conversation about Integration, and Closing Ceremony
Florence and Siri finish the course with a conversation about how we can integrate practices of cyclic living into our daily lives - referring to challenges and growth experienced on their own life journeys towards cyclical awareness. We finish the course with a closing meditation, held by Florence, where we let this newly gained cyclical wisdom sink in deeply.
Warmly welcome to join us on this journey of attuning ourselves to the cyclical movement of Nature, cosmos and our bodies. A journey that will bring us more energy and flow in life - because when we work together with the cycles of Nature, we gain the support from the energetic movement of the whole Universe.
