Modeling Menstruation for Your Daughter with DeAnna L’am
July 23, 2020
Hosted by Robin LaCross
Society values extroverted energy, action, and getting things done. Society teaches women to pretend that menstruation doesn’t exist, that it’s like any other day. When the reality is that a woman’s energy goes in cycles just like her feminine cycle does. During her moon time, it’s normal and natural to want to retreat from the world. How do we give ourselves permission to do this when our culture doesn’t give us the time to pause. In today’s episode, we examine long held beliefs and attitudes around menstruation so that we can “clean house” and get rid of those that no longer serve us. Kids don’t need a lecture or talk about menstruation, they’ll benefit more from seeing how to live a lifestyle that honors your body. When we cherish our own bodies, our girls will pick this up by osmosis. A leader in the Red Tent Movement, DeAnna L’am shares how to heal menstrual wounds, reclaim your Inner Maiden and teach your kids about menstruation in a completely different way.
