This is the English version of my odyssey through the menstrual cycle, including my unique perspective and pedagogic metaphors, developed through 12 years of studying and teaching the menstrual cycle and fertility awareness as a Justisse Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner.
The webinar is 2 hours long. If you buy a ticket you can watch the webinar whenever you want. If you are a subscriber on my channel you also get access to all previous webinars. At this point all but this one are in Swedish, but in the future I will redo most of them in English.

About the format:
FRÅGELÅDAN (The question box) are my live webinars (always available for replay) on the platform boon.tv/vulverine. I pick questions from a pot I’m collecting through firstname.lastname@example.org and give comprehensive, contextualised answers in talks that average 2 hours in length. If you participate live you can ask questions in the comments.
