EP #18 Alexandra Pope & Sjanie Wurlitzer

Menstruality - a feminine spiritual practice

 
 

Episode #18

In Episode #18 on The Jen Mavros Show we continue the topic on this radical new approach of Menstruation and are joined by two gorgeous souls, Hay House authors, experts on the topic; Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer.

We unpack many juicy pieces on menstruality, hormonal contraception, fertility awareness and honoring the cyclic nature of our bodies.

"It's crucial for us to have reliable contraception, at the same time we need to have contraception that doesn't damage our bodies. We don't have a positive story about menstruation because there isn't a culture of empowerment around menstruation, women are taught to see it as a problem and the enemy and they don't develop a relationship with it. The moment you develop a relationship, you feel held by something very beautiful, you start to learn when you're fertile and not fertile. It becomes a very organic, embodied sense, you have greater confidence to know that you can use fertility awareness as your form of contraception.

You see the problem today is that women are not given the true story on hormonal contraception. We need a much bolder conversation about the reality, but before that, we need a new story being fed, being built up from the ground..." -Alexandra 

"When we're on hormonal contraception, we're actually cut off from our deep selves. In particular the thing that we're severed from is our spiritual connection and our creativity and it makes manifesting our calling and getting to know ourselves so much harder because that is what the cycle does, over the years of our life, the cycle is helping us to know ourselves and bring more of who we are into the world. The moment you have contraceptive you're stunting your development on some level. It's a really big deal." -Sjanie
