The Inner Seasons of Pregnancy and Post-Partum
Monique Dickson is The Cyclical Mum, new mama of four little ones and also, a previous private client of mine who I held space for during her pregnancy. I am absolutely thrilled to be reunited with this delicious woman on the other side of the birth of her babe to reflect and share on our different experiences of the inner seasons of pregnancy and the post-partum period, and how applying cycle awareness to pregnancy significantly supported us.
What You’ll Learn
Whilst pregnant and post-partum, both Monique and I have experienced that you still have a cyclical nature despite not having a menstrual cycle.
How Monique experienced her inner seasons of pregnancy: how her energy, capacity, focus and self-care changed across each phase.
How having a breakdown during her third trimester, her inner Autumn, really called Monique to surrender, understand what she needed at that time, and to powerfully call it in for herself.
How Monique consciously prepared to honour her post-partum period like a deep inner winter or ‘big-bleed’ and how this helped her feel more energetic than ever after giving birth.
The points of transition between seasons, and how challenging they can be.
The parallels between the pregnancy cycle and the menstrual cycle
and I reflect on how I connected with my inner seasons of pregnancy as I learnt more about cycle awareness and rites of passage myself.

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.
