Do you have a relationship with your cycle? And what does this even mean? How do we do have a relationship with our cycle. In this episode I am so excited to welcome Bianca Barban to the show, where we delve right in to our personal experience on this topic. Bianca and I own a business together and we have this incredible relationship where, from the very beginning, we have been all about growing and supporting ourselves, growing and supporting each other and then growing and supporting others - this really is the purpose of our business. Our relationship is such that, we are very real with each other and very open. We talk about all sorts of things that happen in the body and the menstrual cycle is always a hot topic. It's a super fun episode, we seriously can't help but have fun together. Listening back to it, I don't think I stopped smiling the entire way through.
Bianca is exquisitely wise and a living example of a woman who knows who she is and does not back down from this no matter what may come her way. I know you will find her as inspiring as I do.
Having a relationship with your cycle is absolutely essential for your health. Not only to understand your health and your body but to enrich your life on every level. It is so worth it!

Some of the topics we discuss:
Introducing Bianca Barban and Living Stillness
Our cycles support us by showing us that everything is related and nothing is separate.
Listening to what the cycle and the body is communicating.
We are taught to over-ride the natural ebb and flow and how our bodies naturally operate.
Cyclical living is very natural for both men and women.
When we commit to making this part of our lives, the body responds.
Circadian Rhythm and the Pineal gland.
We are taught the lineal projection rather than understanding cycles
Self-care & listening to your body is foundational
We are always learning from our body - we are students of our own bodies.
Not listening to our body is exhausting. We have to use a lot of effort to ignore what our body is communicating.
The body is here to support us, if we get out of the way.
Having a relationship with our body starts right back at the beginning to the ways we are taught to refer to parts of our bodies and how we refer to periods.
The messages we get from such a young age about what it is to be a woman. We are told that the only purpose of our body is to make babies.
Cycle syncing - bringing an understanding to how personal this is.
How does our relationship with our cycle affect those around us? Particularly boys and men.
