Feel like your monthly flow is more of a curse than a blessing? Silvana Rigobon’s TED talk on the art and science of menstruality might just change your mind.
Periods and shame seem to go hand-in-hand.
I, for one, have always felt my monthly “visit” from mother nature was a bloody awful curse (pun intended).
That is – until I discovered the incredible power of menstrual cycle awareness.
From curse to treasure map
I started tracking my own cycle after reading Wild Power, and it blew my damn mind.
All of a sudden, I awakened hidden powers that had been bestowed upon me by my biology.
(FYI, the yogis actually used to think of women’s menstrual cycles as “siddhis”, i.e. supernatural powers).
Silvana Rigobon’s TED talk on the topic (see below) should be required viewing for every female.
