Thank you for your workshop. I had a great time and have started to put things into practice. Prior to it I had already realised that I needed to have some type of downtime on my creative process, in fact it was my singing teacher who advised it...but don't think I'd really given myself the permission to do it.  Just your simple diagram of the creative progress has really helped my mind to be at peace with this... I have also begun the process (of Cycle Awareness) and am already discovering lots of things.  The main one is how intrinsically different elements are connected.  It has only bought me closer to my voice and body, trying to accept where it is and work with it from there, rather than pushing it through the next hoop.  I am developing a new approach to my practice, it begins with meditation, into the breathing, into the exercises, and then if needs be into any songs I'm working on.  It is great to have the space to allow this process the time it needs, and it means I'm listening to my body as well as listening to what it can produce

4th UK Women’s Quest Apprenticeship

Leadership training in menstruality consciousness

 

 

The Woman’s Quest Apprenticeship is a radically new approach to leadership training for women based on a uniquely female model of development: the menstrual cycle and the psychological and spiritual developmental journey from menarche through menopause into her mature years. It is the first comprehensive training of its kind in the world exploring and developing the exciting new discipline of Menstruality, a discipline that is set to change the way we approach women’s wellbeing at all levels of our personal and professional development, creative and spiritual life.
