The Power Within
About the Event
For this week's session, we have two acclaimed speakers sharing their deep knowledge about menstruation and bodies.
In the first half, Sally King, a UK based menstrual health researcher and founder of Menstrual Matters, will do a deep dive into Pre-Menstrual Syndrome - what's 'normal' regarding cyclical mood changes, how do we manage period pain and map our productivity!
Next, we will have Dona Tumacder-Esteban, a Manila-based Integrative Women’s Wellbeing Counsellor, a corporate stress and energy management consultant (Asia Pacific), take us through the process of embodying our female energy cycles. Based on hormonal health, energy medicine, and psycho-emotional perspectives, Dona will share with us the physiological aspect and the energetic imprints of the Menstrual Cycle.
