Part of Pause Not Stop Menopause Project (18+)
For so many of us the Menopause can be experienced as a difficult and mysterious thing, we can struggle with it on our own, knowing little about the process, except the negative aspects of what others have experienced before us.
But is this the only way?
Join storyteller and writer Marie Louise Cochrane, for a 90 minute workshop for those approaching, experiencing, or finding themselves on the other side of Menopause.
Drawing on the stories, poems and inspiration of women who have something meaningful, honest and positive to say on the subject, we will hear about different perspectives on the Menopause from others who have used their creativity, as a way of dealing with this time of life. Participants will be invited to reflect on different aspects of Menopause with writing prompts to both reflect on their own experience, and to imagine other versions of it, for themselves and for other women.
Bring a pen and paper, or whatever helps you write, a cuppa and your imagination, as we explore what the Menopause might currently mean for us, and also what it could mean.
By the end we will have a piece of writing of our own, which we can refer to, to help sustain us in any difficult moments that may come.
Information and details of how to join the online group will be via email at 9am on the day of the session. Keep an eye on your inbox! Please do check your junk/spam folders.
