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

The Pill: Are you sure it's for you?
by Jane Bennett & Alexandra Pope
 

So what is the Pill, how does it work and what does it do to your body? If not the Pill, then how else can you control your fertility in casual or long-term relationships? Are hormonal implants and injections any better? If you're about to come off the Pill, what are the best ways to reclaim your health and wellbeing? And what can you look forward to when your body returns to its natural rhythm?

Accessible, informed, inspired, The Pill. Are you sure it's for you? provides you with a wealth of case studies and information that will help you make the choice you want for your body.

 
The Wild Genie: The Healing Power of Menstruation
by Alexandra Pope
 

A self-care guide for all women who want to enjoy their cyclical nature and experience a fulfilling and healthy life. Through the revealing case studies of women's own personal experiences, it offers an approach to menstruation that moves beyond biology to restore a dignity and deeper meaning to a woman's cyclical nature. The work should also be useful to parents who wish to pass on a positive experience of menstruation to their daughters, and for men, to help them gain an insight into the world of women. There is an extensive contacts list and references section.
