I’m Sara Avant Stover, and I want to share with you one of the most common questions I’ve received since writing my best-selling book, The Way of the Happy Woman. In that book, I describe how we, as women, historically lived in harmony with nature’s cycles, which still live within us in our personal monthly cycles. I suggested that women take a new look at their menstruation. Women responded with this question:

“Sara, what should I do on the first day of my cycle IF…”

… I work at an intense job?
… I’m traveling?
… I need to be on my feet all day?
… I’m a busy mom?
… I have the opportunity to actually take the day off?
… I’m not bleeding anymore but want to stay touch with my inner rhythms?

These are great questions.  After all, it’s wonderful to take the time and spaciousness to slow down when life allows.  But life isn’t always so accommodating!

When I read that 4 out of 5 women say menstruation is something “I just have to put up with”, I knew it was time to address this in a bigger way. 

We’ll be spending 90 minutes answering this question, one so seldom discussed.  I honestly can’t think of a better way to honor this special day — International Women’s Day. Our cycles are central to our womanhood, because in many ways we BECOME women the day we start bleeding.

What you do on the first day of your cycle radically affects your health and happiness for the next 30 (or so) days. It impacts your relationships, creativity, energy, spiritual connectedness, and self-confidence, just to name a few things.

As women, trying to ignore or “get through” our cycle, is a prescription for real problems down the road.  A healthy cycle is the key component to our overall health and happiness.

Ancient healing traditions like Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda know this, but in our modern lives, we women have it backwards. We banish our cycles to the outskirts of our lives—and are paying the price through PMS, painful cycles, excessive moodiness, and, over the long run, greater risk of disease and early death.

During this free 90 minute class, we’ll explore with both depth and levity:

So, my dears, on this International Women’s Day, let’s come together. Let’s shine light on this important topic to help women to be better women in the world.

My aim is to empower you to view the first day of your cycle as the source of your deepest creativity, broadest insight, most powerful recharge, and radical empowerment.

I will also be sharing details about my popular, upcoming online immersion, “Reversing Our Curse,” which offers a much deeper exploration of this topic (and many, many more, related to your cycles).

Luna PadsThis International Women’s Day class is in partnership with Luna Pads, which provides school-age girls in Africa with free, re-usable, cloth menstrual pads so they can continue to attend school when they are bleeding (they currently miss 1 in 5 days because of menstruation). On this day only, you will be eligible to receive a 20% discount on any Luna Pads product, and all products are one-for-one. That means each item you buy will sponsor a girl in Africa to receive an AfroPad. I am thrilled to support this amazing charity!

Linda Maria“This class really cracked me open and stretched me in ways that I had not been stretched before. I have come deeply face-to-face with personal beliefs about my cycle, my feminine physical history, and my fears, shame, & dreams. There are juicy things percolating inside me now…l feel like I’m on the brink of something new, and it gives me tingles & goosebumps because I know, really know, I’ve met me on the Path again. I feel honored to not only continue on my journey, but to also trust, open up and share what l can offer to the women I meet along the way. In deepest gratitude & love to you all and especially to you Sara.”

Even men are appreciating this information (yes, we need happy men too!)….
jason“I introduced my girlfriend to Sara’s teachings about feminine cycles. We started studying them together and, using some of Sara’s suggestions, we now start each day of her cycle with me showing up with take-out food and us watching a musical of her choice. This ritual we developed allows me to be supportive of my girlfriend, and for us to celebrate this time instead of trying to avoid it. And she loves it!”

More buzz about Sara’s online classes:

“I am now reframing emotional intensity to emotional insight… a healing in my journey reconnecting to myself. Thank you for the love.”

“I was inspired by the encouragement to listen to and embrace the sacred calling of the soul, and the ‘whisper from the divine’ that is waiting for me in my moon.  I found it empowering to tune into … what I am being called to create. Very profound!”

”You are truly an amazing speaker, and the class was conducted so well. I am looking forward to more!! I will immediately start with some of the yoga moves as well as upgrading my diet. I am so excited to see the great effects this will have on my PMS.”

“ was fabulous! Thank you for sharing this wisdom and holding space. It felt very authentic and practical on all levels. I felt a renewed sense of energy and felt very much like the sensual goddess that I embody.”
