Carmen Lorenzana - Menstrual Cycle Awareness workshop

Learn how to flow with your cycle’s natural rhythms instead of struggling with them!

✨After this workshop you’ll leave with a better understanding of how your hormones impact different aspects of your life and practical tools to strengthen your connection with your cycle and yourself ✨

The menstrual cycle is more than bleeding once a month, PMS, or making babies. Did you know that it has four hormonal phases and that you change physically, mentally, and emotionally in each one of them?

Many of us grow up ignoring how our bodies actually work and understand so little about the cycle that we struggle to have a good (or even neutral) relationship with it. 

But what if I told you there is a powerful way to flow with the natural rhythm of your cycle? What if there was a way to help your hormones work for and not against you?

Incredible shifts happen when you can predict, work with and embrace the changes within yourself each month.

How would your life be different if you gave your menstrual cycle a chance?

“We take better care of what we know.”
-Tami Lynn Kent.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn about the four phases of the menstrual cycle and the changes that you experience physically, emotionally, and mentally in each phase.
  • Discover your unique strengths, vulnerabilities, and needs in each phase of the cycle and how to use them to live more sustainably.
  • Learn about cycle tracking: a powerful practice to strengthen the connection with your cycle and identify if something’s off with your hormonal health.
  • Be gently guided through some exercises to start integrating the day’s teachings into your own menstrual experience.
  • Have the chance to ask questions, share your experience (only as much as you want), and connect with others.
  • Spend a cozy morning relaxing, being held, drinking tea, and recharging together.

✨This workshop is open to women and menstruators✨

How people have experienced my workshops

I was having a horrible relationship with my period, I’d get anxious and irritated a few days before it would come. After attending Carmen’s workshop, I learnt so much about how to deal with it and how not to be too hard on myself those days of the month. Now I have a great relationship with my period, and I live those days as a natural way of my body to work. Thank you Carmen! I so loved your energy and sweetness and I’m so happy I got to meet you in person“.

Chiara Montecchiari, Italy

“I was really excited when I found Carmen’s workshop on Menstrual Cycles. She created a space and atmosphere that was welcoming and warm. I felt seen and accepted as I am, gained new knowledge, and enjoyed hearing others’ stories. After the workshop, I started to track my cycle, trying to find a suitable routine for myself. I’m looking forward to going to upcoming workshops!”

Laura Mähönen, Finland

“I felt so empowered and connected to myself after participating in Carmen’s workshop. I really enjoyed how she shared her wisdom while holding a safe space for us to ask questions and share our insights. I loved the balance between science and inner wisdom. I recommend Carmen’s workshops to anyone who feels called; it was truly a gift. Thank you so much.”

Iina Santamäki, Finland

“I was wowed by Carmen’s knowledge and also really appreciated her style, that she also participated fully in the open conversation and then when the moment felt just right, she went into her more corseted content. This was great, because it allowed us to talk about our cycle with our own vocabulary first, and then afterwards to learn from her. I have thought about Carmen’s workshop many times since then;  I cannot believe how much I DIDN’T know about my period, she really opened my eyes!”

Kati Mayfield,, USA

“Carmen’s Love Your Cycle workshop provided me with tools that I continue to benefit from for my physical & mental well-being 💗 I can highly recommend Carmen’s workshop as she is an expert facilitator with lots warmth & knowledge. It’s for sure going to be beautiful experience with long lasting benefits for the participants”

FAQ’s

This workshop is open to women and menstruators.
You’re welcome to attend if you have an irregular cycle, if you don’t have a period at the moment/anymore, and even if you’re on hormonal birth control. All menstrual experiences are valid and welcome.

If you have questions about your particular situation, you’re welcome to send me a message.

Absolutely! Menstrual Cycle Awareness is a tool to educate yourself and understand your hormonal health, and you can practice it even if you don’t have a “textbook” cycle. By getting to know each phase of your cycle more intimately, you’ll soon realize that cyclical self-care is possible for you and can bring harmony to a not-so-consistent flow. In the workshop, we’ll explore tools and practices for this.

My cycle is quite irregular too, and I’ve learned to make Menstrual Cycle Awareness work for me. It’s entirely possible! And becoming more aware of it can even help you find the root cause of your disorder.

You’re more than welcome to attend, but there are a few things to keep in mind: When you take hormonal birth control, you replace your reproductive hormones with synthetic ones; in other words, you are not experiencing a natural menstrual cycle. The information in this workshop will still be helpful; just keep in mind that certain things won’t necessarily be applicable in the same way, as you are not cycling naturally. However, we’ll explore how to honor the different phases of the cycle, even if you are not cycling naturally :)

I deeply believe that all menstrual experiences are valid and deserve to be honored, and I’m learning how to be more conscious and inclusive of others in this work every day.

This workshop is for anyone who has (or has had) a period. The content is grounded in the four phases of the menstrual cycle (menstruation, pre-ovulation, ovulation and pre-menstruation), but if you don’t have a cycle at the moment/anymore, we’ll explore practices to honor the energies of each phase. An experience of a menstrual cycle (present or past) will help with integration.

You can request a 50% refund until october 25. Past that time, no refunds will be offered, but you’re welcome to transfer your ticket to someone else. 

About Carmen Lorenzana

I’m a Menstruality Mentor by Red School, and certified Fertility Awareness Teacher by FEMM.

Seven years ago, looking for a treatment for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) other than the birth-control pill, I discovered the world of Menstrual Cycle Awareness. I understood for the first time that my cycle is more than bleeding once a month and making babies; my reproductive hormones impact many aspects of my being and make me change physically, mentally, and emotionally in a cyclical way. This was a profound, life-changing discovery, and I immediately felt called to learn more and share it with others. That’s why I formally trained to become a Menstrual Educator.

Through my work, I help women & people with periods have a better menstrual experience and make self-determined decisions about their reproductive health. I do this through workshops, online courses, 1:1 coaching sessions, and educational content.
