S*X, Intimacy, and Our Menopausal Bodies

Are you Really Going to Talk about that? 

Join me and my incredible soul sister,Lisa Schrader, as we explore the least talked, most intimate initiations of this menopause journey! Get ready because we really do spill the beans about all the things that no one really tells you.

This has to be one of the most intimate conversations that I have recorded – and charts my own descent journey into facing some of the hardest and most revealing aspects yet of this menopause journey. 

Lisa is my go to woman – whenever there is “something going  on” in realms of my feminine body, my sexuality, my desire, my intimacy and the initiations that come for most of us in these “queening” years. 

So get ready to come on an amazing conversation that brings us to tears and laughter and creates connection for some of the hardest and most deeply tender places that we get to visit as we “sage” 

Prepare to have your heart opened, to laugh, cry, gasp and at the end of it all not feel so alone – or that you are losing it…although sometimes losing it is just what is needed! 

Some of what we explore:

  • Vaginal Atrophy? I mean WTF is that? And who named that anyway!
  • How our bodies change, our drive, our desire, and our anatomy and how to be with that
  • The initiation gateway of having to speak our needs
  • The challenge and hilarity intimacy and s#x  just not working the way it used to
  • What it means to enter into deeper lover-ship with ourselves at this point of the journey
  • How we can embrace all these changes and become more fully
