Female fertility represents a continuous circle of change. We can learn a lot about our potential by exploring the effect of hormones on our bodies, emotions and thoughts. Hormones rise and fall throughout the month like the patterns of a beautiful dance. In this workshop you will create your own fertility cycle mandala and bead ring, with the intent to enhance personal creativity. We’ll look at our own fertility phases to become more conscious of their influence on our daily lives – such as when we feel more inward turning and reflective, when we are feeling more organized and disciplined, when we are feeling more ready to respond to the whispers of creativity. moFrom that point, we are set to apply this inner understanding to our outward-extending creative process, whether in writing a book, decorating a room, creating a piece of art, a song, a talk, or a recipe.
