A woman is ever-changing. The way she takes care of herself, nourishes her body & honours her energy, needs to reflect that.


At any point in time, a cyclic woman is in one of the eight phases of the menstrual cycle; either an ‘inner season’ or a ‘crossover phase’. It’s no surprise then that we’re awakening to the truth that the way we take care of ourselves, manage stress levels, and organise our lives, all needs to flow with this inner rhythm.


When I came off the contraceptive pill in 2012, I realised very quickly that the way I approached my health and wellness needed to change. My physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and sexual energy changed week-to-week (day-to-day!), and as I navigated the hormonal imbalances I was experiencing, including post-pill amenorrhea and PCOS, it soon became apparent my self-care practice would need to complement this ebb and flow.



As a practicing women’s health & life coach for nearly six years now, I’ve made the observation again and again (and again!) that for women who have a natural menstrual cycle, wellness needs to be approached from a more fluid, cyclic perspective (we don’t move in straight lines — have you noticed?). When a woman’s self-care practice is aligned with the shifting tides of her menstrual cycle, she can truly radiate. 


Linear modes of self-care simply don't work in the longterm. Burnout is not sexy. Boundaries are. And so are the joys of cycle awareness, happy hormones, ovulation dances, feminine discernment... & flower baths!


As we move through the four phases of the menstrual cycle, what helps us to feel nourished and energised one week, simply won’t work at all the next. The way we approach our calendar, relationships, creative projects, diet, movement, meditation… it all changes. And that’s all good — it’s where we tap our radiance! — but only when we work with our inner rhythm, rather than working against it.



I’ve created Radiate to show you how to sync your self-care practice with your cycle, so that you can work with your inner rhythm — not against it! Life as a cyclic woman isn’t easy when the world isn’t (yet) set up for us… but you can cultivate balance, ease, sustained energy, and embodied harmony from within. I'll show you how.


This course takes a step-by-step approach, where each week of lessons builds upon the next. Once we have laid the foundations that help to restore the natural rhythm of your cycle, we’ll cover the tools you need to get to know each phase intimately. The course is structured so that you have time to actually make the changes in your self-care practice that give you what you need to truly thrive, and receive direct feedback from me, and the group, on what is and isn’t working.

Feedback & Testimonials

"Claire has gone out into the world to learn through experience, what works and why. Because of this, she’s been able to remove the guess factor for those on their own wellness journey. You and your Adore Your Cycle work are a blessing to the wellness industry, Claire."


— DR. NATALIE KRINGOUDIS


"Claire's work has taught me how to embrace my cycle and support myself through each season, rather than being at war with my femininity and my body."


— CONNIE CHAPMAN 


"I love knowing exactly where I'm at in my cycle, it's really connected me back to my body and helped in feeling into it and showering it with love and gratitude. I've learned to be gentle, to honour my body, and to freaking love my period!"


— ABBEY LAKE 


"Honestly, you think you have your shiz sorted at 30 and know a fair bit about yourself and your body, but my oh my how wrong I was. You have truly opened my eyes to a whole new world of my cycle and the different phases and how it is OK to not be OK sometimes and to understand the different moods and emotions that we have—and how it is ALL LINKED. Truly mind blowing, yet.... simple. Something I feel EVERYONE needs to know."


— MEAGAN BIGNESS 


"Learning to understand the importance of self love and how heavily that can impact on our menstrual cycle and how we feel at different times of the month has been a revelation for me, especially how embracing these concepts can make my relationship with my partner even better."

— TAHLIA THOMAS


"Claire holds an incredibly safe space for you to explore how you want your life to feel. I feel ridiculously lucky to have been mentored by her & couldn't recommend her more highly to others. I feel completely 'in the flow'!"


— AMANDA HILL


"You've opened my eyes to a new way of living in conjunction with my menstrual cycle and not against it. I have a new sense of being in tune with myself—it really is amazing how my moods and emotions flow with the season I'm in. I can't believe I've never put the two and two together!"

— KYLIE ANDERSON





Questions?

How much time will I need to invest in the content each week?

You'll need approx. 2.5 hours a week to take the lessons, do your charting, and join (or watch the recording) of the group call. 


My cycle isn't 28 days long. It's longer / shorter / erratic! Does that matter? 

Many women find their cycle doesn't consistently follow a 28-day pattern. Mine certainly doesn't! And that's fine. By getting to know each phase of your cycle more intimately, you'll soon realise that cyclic self-care is not only possible for you, but can bring much harmony to a less-consistent flow. 


How is the course delivered?

Everything is delivered digitally over email, video, audio & PDF. You'll need an email address and a computer or smartphone to access the content. Printing the 'Menstrual Maps' to chart your cycle is recommended.


Will you be running this course again?

Radiate will run again in late 2018.


Does this course apply to women who don't have a menstrual cycle? ie. pregnant, breastfeeding, post-menopausal, trans women, someone who has had a hysterectomy, or is experiencing amenorrhea?

This course contains guidance, knowledge and specific practices that will benefit anyone who identifies as a woman. I value inclusivity, and am learning more everyday about how I can be more conscious and inclusive of others in this work. The content of the teachings is grounded in menstruality, and in the experience of a 'natural' menstrual cycle, ie. ovulating and menstruating. An experience of a menstrual cycle (present or past) will help with integration of the work. If you are no longer cycling, or will not experience a natural cycle again, the content may not apply to you as an individual, but rather in your sharing of this work with others in your life.


My currency isn't pounds. Can I still take the course?

For sure! When you make payment using PayPal, the currency will automatically be converted to your own.


I have a personal question, can I email you privately?

Please! You're welcome to contact me on claire (at) thisislifeblood.com.
