Inclusivity Statement

At Red Revelations, my teachings have from the grounded teachings from The Red School Menstruality Cosmology formed on 40 years of deep commitment to the cycle, as well as my own deeply lived experience of the cycle. The ideas presented in this work are always expanding and evolving through the people I meet and work with. If you are curious to learn about the menstrual cycle or cyclical living, I'd welcome you to join my courses and add your experience, story or perspective to my expanding conversation on the wisdom of the menstrual cycle and of cyclical living.

I teach about the wisdom of the menstrual cycle and the initiatory journey from menarche to menopause. I apply these teachings in different areas including health and wellbeing, personal development, creativity, spirituality and women’s leadership.

I welcome anyone to my courses who is interested in learning about the wisdom of the menstrual cycle and cyclical living regardless of whether you identify as a woman or not. If you don’t have a menstrual cycle and identify as a woman you can work with this information by using the moon cycle as your cycle template.

I speak of the Feminine and Masculine as archetypal forces that exist in all of us to varying degrees regardless of gender. I often refer to them as the via positiva (the way of the masculine) and the via negativa (the way of the feminine). The ground of this work rests very strongly in the via negativa and I am committed to the restoration of the Feminine Way in the world.

Because cis-gendered women have traditionally been humiliated, shamed, dismissed and trivialised because of the fact of our menstrual cycle and bleeding itself, opening up to the topic can feel dangerous, initially stirring very vulnerable and shaming feelings. I therefore go to great efforts to create safe and supportive atmospheres within which they may feel safe to recover the power of their cycle and release the shame and darkness around it. I want to extend this sense of safety and support to anyone regardless of your gender who is genuinely seeking to learn with me.

We are all learning and we all need to tread tenderly and thoughtfully in this new unfolding territory of menstrual cycle awareness.

With great love,

Soraya
