Menstruation & The Moonlodge The Wise Woman Way with Susun Weed
July 16, 2020
Hosted by Robin LaCross
In ancient times, in certain cultures, women had a sacred place they could go during menstruation. Inside the Moonlodge, women of all ages would come together to support menstruating women. Crones, those who no longer bled, were there to share their wisdom, while the younger girls went out to carry water, gather herbs, and collect firewood. It’s a sacred place where women came together as a community to support each other, tell stories, and retreat from the bustle of the world during menstruation. In a world where menstruation is taboo and hidden from view while we pretend it’s just like any other day. Many women experience discomfort during menstruation. Robin’s special guest, Susun Weed suggests that it’s the body’s way of inviting us to slow down, tune in, and take time out from the world. Susun shares stories of the Moonlodge, White Buffalo Calf Woman, and woven throughout her stories are nuggets of wisdom girls and women can use to ease menstruation and celebrate her moon time.

Robin believes that by changing the way parents talk to their kids about sex we can reduce unintended pregnancies and the spread of STDs in the world. To this end, Robin founded the HPV Education Project to raise awareness about the virus and the problems it causes. She also created a pair of online interview series called the Raising Empowered Daughters Summit and the Raising Empowered Kids Interview Series where she interviewed over 40 experts on a wide variety of topics designed to empower parents to communicate freely with their children about growing up, sex, relationships and staying safe.
Robin helps parents prepare for these challenging conversations by offering online training programs, private coaching and through her weekly radio show, Holistic Sex Ed Radio.
