Reclaim the Menopause Event

Our last event for magnificent women in mid-life and beyond was so much fun, we’ve decided to do it again! This time, we have Cabby Laffy and Eileen Bellot joining us for a deeper look into the effects menopause has on all aspects of women’s lives.

The menopause is one of those subjects no one likes to talk about, and yet it will impact every single woman on planet earth -so why the silence and shame?

Exacerbated by a lack of knowledge and negative social attitudes, many women find the Menopause a confusing and uncomfortable phase in their lives. Some have fears and concerns about the impact on their libido, self-esteem, and mental wellbeing, and feel reluctant or embarrassed to speak about the subject directly.

Come and join us for a relaxed and empowering evening to discuss the menopause, sensuality and sexuality. Ageing doesn’t mean we lose interest in sex – or the ability to enjoy it. The menopause needs to be reclaimed as a period where women come into their wisdom and power. It’s a time where we have been around long enough to know what we want or don’t want, where the children have flown the nest, or we begin to refocus on ourselves and our own needs and desires.

Eileen BellotEileen Bellot’s work creates space to allow people avenues and tools that support exploration of their mental, physical, spiritual and emotional selves. “My work is inspired by the things that make me curious: in 2012 I became curious about why women were embarrassed talking about the Menopause, so started the Reclaim the Menopause Project to allow women the opportunity to start having a dialogue about this important subject”.
