This Ain’t Your Mother’s Menopause: A Monthly guide for all women 35 and up.
Colleen Hathaway, D.C.
Peri-menopause and menopause can be viewed as a powerful time of change that can be embraced with enthusiasm and grace; a time when we can set intentions and come together to support our transitions; to grow and to manifest our dreams, abundance and quality of life. The transition to menopause is a journey of self-discovery; a reminder that we are whole and changing. This transition begins in the mid-thirties and continues on into post-menopause. A clear awareness of the changes occuring inside the body can help us shift our focus from outside our bodies to inside our bodies. The inward shift is at the very heart of perimenopause and menopause because true healing comes from within. With this internal awareness, we can serve from abundance with inspiration and passion for living and changing. Alas, it is a blessing that we women have the opportunity to travel this path!
