Seeing menstruation as "the curse" pre-disposes women to ailments such as PMS, cervix cancer, and other reproductive-related diseases. On the other hand, embracing your cycle as a wellspring of monthly renewal is "preventive medicine at its finest!" as Dr. Christiane Northrup wrote about DeAnna's pioneering work. Coming-Of-Age ceremonies to welcome yourself into womanhood (regardless of your age) and to welcome your daughter (when she starts cycling) are the best antidotes for a life fraught with PMS, low self-esteem, sexual insecurities, and physical disease. Join DeAnna for an evening of inspiration, and learn how to start orchestrating such preventive shifts of consciousness for your own, and your daughter's benefit!
