Thriving in the Second Spring of Menopause

Menopause is such a shamed and unspoken experience for many generations of women who receive the messaging that it’s not possible to thrive post menopause, and that ageing is a terrible thing. Whilst it can bring physical, mental, emotional and spiritual experiences that are unpleasant, menopause is not the end of the road.
My guest Kate Codrington is a few years post menopause and is here to tell us that its possible to feel well, enjoy life and flourish on the other side of our menstrual cycling years. In her new book ‘Second Spring: The Self-Care Guide to Menopause’ Kate helps us re-frame menopause and brings the radical notion that with small changes and a clear-eyed look at what’s no longer serving you, you can reclaim your vitality and joy in life.

What You’ll Learn

  • How Kate connects with her cyclical nature whilst in menopause, once her menstrual cycle has ended for good, via the creative, daily, lunar and seasonal cycles.
  • How seasonal awareness is deeply supporting Kate during menopause and how she knows which seasonal energy she is in at any time by checking inwards to how she feels in her body.
  • Real-world examples of how Kate embodies her inner energy when not able to sync with her menstrual cycle anymore.
  • The concept, beauty and gift of understanding the Second Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter in the second half of life between menopause and death.
  • The absolute gift of Yoga Nidra and its medicine for menopause, and her free recordings you can access on her website.
  • About her new book ‘Second Spring: the self-care guide to Menopause’ which guides women to thrive during a culturally shamed season of life.

How To Exercise For Your Cycle And Pregnancy

Who Holds The Mother? Healing The Inner Split in Matrescence. When a baby is born, everyone rushes to hold the baby. But who is holding the Mother? This is the big question which Amy Taylor-Kabbaz is advocating to be resolved. Amy’s work centres Matrescense, the becoming of a Mother, which happens slowly, almost invisibly to others, but felt deeply by the woman. This rich, deep, powerful conversation bought Amy and I together on something we feel so strongly about: that rites of passages must be honoured in modern cultures to ensure the wellbeing of all – especially the Feminine. Join us on Wild Flow Podcast with Charlotte Pointeaux to hear more about what Matrescence is and where it originated, how we experience an Inner Split as our identities, perspectives and whole self irreversibly changes in Matrescence, how our careers, roles and value changes in Motherhood, and what we can collectively do to reclaim and honour The Mother.
