#66 Leaning into the Cyclical Wisdom of your Body using TCM and Ritual ~ w/ Eugénie van Gaver
Eugénie is an acupuncturist and womb healing guide, supporting people on their journey back to their body. In this conversation, she touches on how we can work towards having a painless and even celebratory, supportive menstrual cycle. She explains how TCM sees menstruation as an integral part of life – seeing our bleed as ‘heavenly’ may be quite radical for the Western World, but can be so empowering!
She also talks about getting to know your cycle intimately by measuring your temperature (using the FAM method), choosing the right foods for a particular phase and allowing ritual to be a part of it all. One of the things I find so inspiring about Eugénie is how she openly shares online how she uses her bleed to make art, give back to Mother Nature and celebrate her body. What radiates from her online presence – and from our conversation – is that to truly live empowered, you will have to join the physical with the emotional and the spiritual.
