Every time a woman menstruates she has the opportunity to develop greater self-knowledge and spiritual awareness. Drawing on information from several cultural traditions as well as from her own experiences and those of other women, Lara Owen shows how your period can become a time of emotional deepening and physical renewal during which you can tap into inner wisdom.
"Honoring Menstruation" is an updated, revised and expanded version of Owen's first book, "Her Blood Is Gold" and includes a new section on natural healing methods for menstrual symptoms, as well as a detailed description of the spiritual and emotional phases that occur within the menstrual cycle.
