Menopausal change is a process of metamorphosis that is gifted to every woman in her midlife. Some of us hear the call earlier, some of us later - but ready or not, we can’t avoid the task to transform from the woman we were in our reproductive years to a new identity that is not yet formed. We know there is a journey waiting to be undertaken. We cannot rest, we cannot sleep. Something in us knows that we must shake off the old skin in order to make room for the new.
Leaving behind what is familiar can be one of the most terrifying aspects of the midlife transformation. The change doesn’t happen over night but comes in 3 distinctive phases: the peri-menopause, menopause itself and post menopause. These phases can be seen to follow the 3 classic stages of initiation: isolation, death and rebirth. In fact in many cultures menarche and menopause are seen as rites of passage in a woman’s life. Many of us have lost the knowledge and rituals that allow us to enter this journey with guidance and support. All we have is a medicalised story.
The red thread offers individual support, workshops, community building, events, celebrations and rituals to anyone who is on the journey and does not want to walk alone. It supports women to connect to the thread that guides their life and promotes our uniquely feminine story of empowerment to unfold.
Our time of change is a time of power. Let’s not walk it alone.
