How To Actually Prepare for Menopause

Alexandra Pope


Alexandra Pope is the co-founder of Red School and the co-author of the iconic and hugely celebrated book, Wild Power: discover the magic of the menstrual cycle and awaken the feminine path to power. Together with her colleague and co-author, Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer, she is pioneering the newly emerging field of menstruality, creating a new lexicon and approach to women’s health and wellbeing; creativity and leadership; and spiritual life based on the power of our menstruality consciousness.
