Become Your Own Contraception and Fertility Expert
Jane Bennett is a powerhouse in the menstrual education world. Having been working to support women and children with understanding their fertility and contraception naturally for many decades, she has empowered multiple generations to take back their bodies, and be well educated and informed to make informed choices for both understanding and supporting fertility, and contraception that doesn’t need to involve taking hormonal birth control.
I loved meeting Jane for the first time – its such a perk of doing this podcast, I get to have conversations with people I admire, respect and have learned from such as Jane. We spoke about Jane’s mission and journey to creating her legacy that she’s built, what the different types of contraception are and how they work, why you might want to consider not taking hormonal birth control, how to come off birth control and what that might be like, and how we can share information with teens so they can make informed choices for themselves.

Samhain Magick: Embracing the Descent into the Mystery of Autumn
the witches say the veils between the worlds of the dead and the living, the seen and unseen, are thinnest at samhain, the name of the cross-quarter sabbat (celebration) between autumn equinox and winter solstice.
mystics, pagans and those who appreciate the seasons and cycles of life find much magick, power and transformation available in listening to what the spirits tell us, and in facing the darkness, arriving frosts and scent of death on the air of samhain, because it gives us a chance to go inwards, to reflect on whether you’re living your most authentic life, and to discern what needs to die so you can come closer to your truest essence.
