Menarche

Re-initiate yourself into your menstrual journey, by re-visioning your experiences of your first period.

Join this special course from Red School, to explore, recover, and re-invent your menarchial experience - in order to reclaim the seed of your own unique potential as a woman.

Menarche is the time of your very first period.

  • You really want to re-claim and re-ignite your power as a woman - simple as!

Join this course, and you join hundreds of women who are already re-imagining their futures with Red School

On the menarche course you will:

  • Get a fresh start to your journey into womanhood
  • Release trauma, shame or grief associated with menarche
  • And awaken to the essence of your Calling
