Description

Putting the “wo” in Menopause: change is the only constant

This workshop came from a desire as females pre-menopause to create a dialogue with females who are passing or have passed through menopause. We realized we lacked insight into this transition out of the fertile years. Much of what we have heard is the negative - the hot flashes, losing vitality, the mood swings. But we don’t buy it. We believe there is beauty and benefits in every transition.

We wanted to invite a variety of perspectives on the issue and have a place to ask our questions and muse on menopause. Likewise, we want to prepare ourselves for the different possibilities of this step in life and be ready to receive the changes in a good way.

This workshop is open to females on both side of the menopause divide. We look forward to an enriching discussion in a safe and judgement free environment.

About the facilitators:

Nadira King is a long time healer using acupuncture and accompanying Traditional Chinese Medicine to help females work with the symptoms of menopause. She hails from Guyana but has a long standing practice at the border of Ontario and Quebec and equally works closely with the community in Akwesasne.

Rose Marie Whalley is a long time activist and feminist. She fought hard for day care, maternity leave and equality for women in the streets of Montreal in the 60s and 70s, and continues to support a number of struggles today. She is a board member at the Centre for Gender Advocacy and has been a long time host and producer of Older Women Live, a radio program on CKUT that puts the voices and issues of older women on the waves. She watched many friends take Hormone Replacement Therapy as they went through menopause.
