First Blood Workshop & Ceremony, Bristol.

£75.00 – £90
First Blood Workshop Bristol

Reclaim Your Maiden, Recalibrate Your Menstrual Cycle.

This powerful Rite of Passage will take you back to your first period to connect with and heal your maiden self, which in turn will recalibrate your menstrual cycle.

Our first period sets the tone for our relationship with our cycle.

Many women have experienced feeling unwelcome in the world or feel numb around this time as our culture has pasted over this sweet phase of our lives and the absence of this rite of passage – often called Menarche – has rushed our maiden-selves into an adult woman all too quickly.

When we go back to this time and reclaim our maiden-self and first period, our relationship with our cycle shifts. This has a domino effect on an emotional, physical and soul level and our whole menstrual cycle is recalibrated.

This is a First Blood ‘catch-up’ Ceremony for women. You can join if you have your menstrual cycle, whether your cycle is regular or not, and if you are in peri-menopause or menopause.

Benefits of Reclaiming Your Maiden-Self

These are all genuine benefits that both Rachael and Melanie, and the women they have worked with have experienced.

  • Decrease in uncomfortable emotional and physical pre-menstrual symptoms
  • Increase in energy
  • Decrease in the pain of periods, emotional and physical
  • Re-connection with natural talents, dreams and creativity
  • Feeling welcome in the world as a woman

  • Relationship with your whole cycle is recalibrated
