Stop working around and against your cycles.
Start working with them.


Hi there, beautiful woman. I’m Sara Avant Stover, bestselling author of The Way of the Happy Woman and the forthcoming Book of SHE. I’m also a yogini and mentor to tens of thousands of women around the world. My passion is helping women reclaim the source of our greatest inner power — our spiritual insight — and to use that to build the outer lives that we most desire.

One of the most profound sources of our spiritual insight and feminine power is the very thing that we, as women, are taught to hide or ignore. I like to say it’s the “M’s” — our menarche and menopause, menses and moods.

Like many women, I used to think of my feminine cycles as a nuisance: something to “put up with” each month. I denied my body’s messages, and suffered physical and emotional consequences. Finally, after years of study and deep inner work, I reconnected to my cycles — and was astonished to discover within them a wellspring of creativity, intuition, and embodied wisdom.

You see: your feminine cycles aren’t a “curse.” They’re alchemical miracles, hiding in plain sight, happening right in your own body. And, if you learn to work with then (not against them), you’ll be amazed at the creativity and strength you’ll find there.

I want to forever change the way you see (and live with) your cycles. Because they have everything to do with your creativity, power, intuition, and the embodied miracle of your spiritual path and happiness potential, as a woman.

Please join me and the thousands of women who have already begun walking this wise woman Way!

What is Reversing Our “Curse”?

A 2-Week Online Immersion: August 15- 29, 2015 


This will be the fourth and final time I’ll teach this course LIVE. You won’t want to miss it!

The materials I’ll share have been freshly updated and drawn from the teachings in my new book, The Book of SHE: Your Heroine’s Journey into the Heart of Feminine Power (available in October).

For most modern women (even spiritual yoginis!), menstruation and menopause are something we have to “put up with.” Our cycles are a nuisance, a shameful detail, or even a “curse” of life as a woman.

We have disowned our cycles — and along with them, the uniquely feminine strength, creativity, and spiritual alchemy they contain. The results are painful: burnout, stress, depression, fertility challenges, and fraught intimate relationships.

Whether you’re a young woman, a mother, or moving into your crowning years, your cycles can support you by opening a strong, direct channel to your own profound, inner (and distinctly feminine) wisdom.

This program will show you how to tap into the alchemical wisdom of your cycles (yes! even if they’re not “normal”), so you can stop fighting, ignoring, or putting up with them — and start embracing their gifts.

Reversing Our “Curse” guides you through 3 feminine initiations:

Reversing Our “Curse” gives you the outer resources and inner insights you need to reclaim the wisdom hiding in plain sight, within your cycles.

Our Cycles Are Not a “Curse”

Far from it. They’re actually a tremendous gift, especially for those of us walking the path of conscious femininity. It turns out that when we are in harmony with our cycles, our world gets a whole lot easier.

We have the inner tools to tap into our greatest feminine superpower: transmuting physical, emotional, and mental suffering into growth. We ourselves become the magic wand that can transform obstacles into opportunities.

The result? We suffer less burnout, stress, and fatigue — and effortlessly tap into our uniquely feminine creativity, strength, intuition, resourcefulness, and playfulness.

When you stop fighting your cycles and start dancing with them, you can:

“Each month, through our menstrual cycle, we have the opportunity to grow and dissolve and emerge again, just like the seas and the moon.”
The Way of the Happy Woman

Your cycles have everything to do with all parts of your life. Reversing Our “Curse” reveals the gifts they offer at every level of your being …

This immersion guides you through your inner and outer worlds, so you can reclaim the deepest parts of your femininity. Even if your life is busy-to-the-max. And at any age and season of life.

We’ll explore how your cycles can reflect and support each of these areas of your being:

Unlock the Magic in Your Feminine Cycles

Most courses on menstruation and menopause focus on the physical, external practices geared to “fix” your cycles. All that is certainly included here: from foods to supplements to lifestyle and physical practices. But we also go far beyond the physical to honor the deep, spiritual wisdom carried by your cycles.

You will be initiated into the ancient, feminine art of honoring your natural rhythms and discover the alchemical wisdom expressed by your body. You see, sisters: even the Goddess bleeds.

Each month, our feminine bodies undergo a mini “Heroine’s Journey” of death and rebirth, asking us to face what we most fear and resist, in order to discover the truth of our greatest feminine superpower. When we embrace the ups and downs of our cycles, we can make magic. Through that, we can co-create with the unseen world to live in wondrous and spectacular ways.

Your cycle is a microcosm of the spiritual and creative process, and an incredible training ground for the bigger creative cycles in your life, work, and love.

When we disown or deny our cycles, our Dark Feminine (you know what I’m talking about!) sabotages us with vicious self-doubt, grief, and rage. She screams for attention, because we’ve ignored her!

This course teaches you to listen to your Dark Feminine, and make her your powerful ally, so you can:

This course isn’t about “perfecting” your cycles or hormones. It’s about harnessing the full, spiritual potential of your cycles, as a training ground for your inner growth. Through them, you can learn how to fully “be with” and work through the challenges of your life. Now that’s power.

The feminine spiritual path is embodied, relational, and alchemical.

And the best way to fully understand and honor it is by embracing the wisdom offered by your cycles.

This is for every woman. In any season of life.

Honoring your cycles isn’t about chasing what’s “perfected,” “fixed,” or “normal.” It’s about knowing yourself, loving yourself, and dancing with your embodied feminine wisdom– in the messy and divinely human splendor that you are, moment to moment. That’s why this course is perfect for any woman:

It’s time to stop denying our cycles — and reclaim the wellspring of strength and feminine wisdom they offer.

Reversing Our “Curse” Includes:

  • 3, 2-hour live video retreats (Saturdays August 15, 22 & 29 from 10am-12pm Pacific/1pm-3pm Eastern). Each includes an inspiring talk from Sara, followed by somatic and psycho-spiritual practices (that support the week’s topic and phase of our cycles): yin & flow yoga, meditation, and Q & A.
  • 11 intimate interviews with guest experts (see our line up of wisdom keepers below). These live in the “resource” library of our online forum in mp3 (audio) and mp4 (video) format. These are pre-recorded, and you can listen to/watch these at any time to support your initiation.
  • Flexibility for your schedule. Everything is recorded, so you can enjoy the course live or at your own pace. We will deliver the materials to you week-by-week, to support you in digesting and integrating the material.
  • Diet, exercise, and supplements. You’ll learn all of the latest from my own life experience and from our hormone and nutrition guest experts.
  • Yoga and meditation.  Video classes for all levels of experience. Custom created for our different times of the month, and our different seasons of life.
  • A healing sisterhood. The women in this community WILL feel like your sisters! This is a place to connect, reveal, receive, and guide one another.
  • A place to feel safe talking about what you’re afraid to talk about. Sex, birth control, low libido, wild mood swings, wrinkles, bleeding through you pants in public. Doubts, failures, and fears. All of it. It’s ALL okay here.
  • A doorway to your deepest soul wisdom. This is a safe place to start to tune into your depths. We’ll dive into the heart of your femininity — your soul, your relationship to the Divine, and your greatest inner resource–your embodied intuition.
  • A unique course not available anywhere else, where you’ll align with your own feminine rhythms to create the deeply fulfilling life you’ve been longing for.
  • The very best of my wise woman teachings on our cycles. I offer these teachings with fierce love and compassion.
  • Live help.  A mentor who has graduated from this course will be in the forum with you, answering questions as you go, as they arise, and as you move deeper into the fullest expression of your power and wisdom.

Your Immersion Also Includes a Treasure Trove of Resources:

  • A private, “Virtual Women’s Circle” (a beautiful, serene space away from the hustle and bustle of Facebook) for you to connect with other women and give and receive ongoing support from me and an assistant mentor.
  • An archive of rich, wonderful, and oh-so very “raw and real” interviews with our esteemed guest teachers
  • A recommended reading and resource list
  • A pretty PDF poster of how to align your life and work with the moon cycles

I’m beyond passionate about this. These teachings are the culmination of the last 15 years of my life and work.

It took me years of study and practice, trial and error, heartbreak and triumph to understand everything I’m sharing in Reversing Our “Curse.” I believe every woman deserves this feminine wisdom — so you can know yourself, love yourself, and create the life you’re being called to, in a deeply feminine way.

But it’s not just me. Hundreds of women have moved through this territory with me and are now living their lives with this newfound sense of power, purpose, and depth. This course has been tried and tested in the real world, with real women, and it works!

Reversing Our “Curse” is closed for registration.

It will open up again in 2016 as a home study course.

Don’t Let Another Miraculous Cycle Pass You By … This is Your Precious Life!

I taught this program live in 2012 and 2013 and 2014, and it was a huge success each time. Now, several hundred women are living ablaze with this radical –and yes, unconventional — approach to feminine power.

It’s unconventional because of the shame, secrecy, and repression of our feminine power, and I’m ready for these taboo teachings to become the new “normal” in how we live our lives (and what we teach our daughters, nieces, and students).

Here’s what some of RoC graduates had to say about it (and this is just a tiny sample — look to the Praise section below for longer from-the-heart comments!).

“Intense, wild, and powerful…”
“An amazing journey…”
“A powerful month for me…”
“I never expected a course could touch me this deeply…”
“Life changing…”
“This course contains such profound wisdom…”
“Best course ever!”

A Journey Unlike Anything You’ll Find Elsewhere

With full humility (and a little pride), I don’t know of anyone else sharing this level of depth and wisdom around our cycles, and their gifts for every level of our feminine being.

This is the culmination of a lifetime of work on my end, and of the combined wisdom of dozens of my most treasured teachers and mentors.

Most importantly, this course has been “road tested”, and the feedback of hundreds of women have proven its power and effectiveness — for women in many different places in life.

I’m standing on the shoulders of the women giants who came before me, who were kind enough to reach out and pull me up.

And now, I’m reaching out to you.

Our Esteemed Guest Teachers

A strong feminine community is powerful medicine and magic.

The women in this program will feel like your sisters … from the assistant mentor to your fellow new initiates. Women often remark that they learn just as much (if not more!) from the sisterhood, than they do from me.

And we’re honored to be supported by these visionary elders and wise women:

Praise from Our Alumnae

What Men Have to Say About This Course

Sisters, it’s time. Please stop trying to “take it like a man.” Because your real strength lies in your femininity!

Your cycles — and all the strength and wisdom they brings — are your womanly birthright.

Isn’t it time you reclaimed them?

I only want you to join this immersion if it’s right for YOU! It’s a deep initiation, so every woman who participates needs to want to be there 100%. So, I invite you to slow down and drop in. Deepen your breath. Place one hand on your heart and one hand on your belly. Connect with your inner wisdom. Connect with Her. Ask yourself: is this something I could really use? What would be the benefit to me, my loved ones, and my work in the world if I loved myself in this way and gave myself this gift?

A Recap and Why You Should Say “YES!”

What: A virtual, 2-week immersion to understand the wisdom of your cycles (at any age), weave their rhythms into your life, reclaim the deepest, most powerful parts of your femininity, and express the uniquely feminine creativity, sensuality, vitality, intuition, strength, and sacred connection that are your birthright!

Why: Because we women have denied, ignored, and “sanitized” our cycles (and the powerful wisdom they offer) for too long. We’re tired of disowning our bodies, ignoring our rhythms, and holding back our strength. We’re ready to express more of who we are, as sacred, embodied, wild, messy, soft, sensual, and irresistibly wise women.
