welcome! have a look around.

embodyperiod. is an inclusive space for empowered embodiment from the depths up & out. however you identify, if you menstruate, or call yourself a woman, embodyperiod. can guide you into a sustainable practice of your authentic, embodied self. (& if you're thinking menstruation has nothing to do with you, stick around. be curious. you might be surprised how embodyperiod. can matter to you too.)

you're in the right place if any of these things feel true:

You’re somebody who is struggling with PMS or PMDD (or, as I call it, premenstrual change). You’ve tried medication. Hormonal birth control and/or anti-depressants and these approaches aren’t working for you. Or, maybe you’re considering this route, but feel unsure, and you’re wishing there was another way. Bottom line is you know something needs to change. The current situation isn’t sustainable. You’re unhappy and maybe feeling like there’s nowhere else to turn, and you want something positive and supportive to be possible.
You’re somebody who is grappling with gender roles, ideas of what a woman’s life should or should not look like, and how this intersects with all the dynamic and unique aspects of your life. You’re in a place in your life in which the question of “where you stand” with your embodied identity feels crucial. There’s a strong sense of necessity to connect further with who you are, and how to show up, radically empowered, and navigate the world as your authentic self.
You’re somebody who feels stuck somewhere in how you experience sex, or your own sense of your sensuality. And this has you feeling unsatisfied, self-critical, disconnected, disenchanted, and/or depressed. Try as you might to sweep this feeling under the rug, it keeps nagging at you. You haven’t been sure what to do about this. Or maybe you're out of ideas. Sex and sexuality can be difficult and awkward to talk about. You don’t want to be (or are tired of being) judged or labeled with some kind of dysfunction or name (low desire, hyper-sexuality, frigid, slut, the list goes on and on). Trying to intellectualize the situation hasn’t made you feel any better than ignoring it. You want something different, and you need to find a way to get there.
You’re somebody who has recently experienced a big life change. A transition, a shift, a move, the end and the beginning of something. Things feel new, different, and perhaps a little unfamiliar. Maybe people tell you to feel excited about this, but really, you feel ungrounded. You’d like to have a better sense of the direction you’re now in, and a way of navigating towards your future that feels true and authentic. OR, maybe a big change hasn’t just happened, but after reading the last few sentences, you thought to yourself, gee, I could really use a better sense of an inner compass right now!
You’re somebody who wants more. More of the knowledge and wisdom that was kept out of classrooms and the stories of our elders. You want to know about the menstrual cycle, about fertility, and how it all works. You want to hear and see more women and menstruators (people who menstruate but do not identify as women) empowered in their bodies, in their desires, their sexuality, and who they are–period. You want to know more about sex. Empowered, embodied sex. You want to know more, hear more, and participate in spurring the right to embody the full expression of yourself and others.
You’re somebody who dreams. At night, like, when you’re asleep. You have dreams that wake you up, dreams that revisit you during the day. Dreams that make impressions on you, that stay with you. Dreams you remember. You’d like a place, and some time, to give these dreams attention. You’re curious about them.

has one, or some combination, of the above "somebodies" made something inside of you perk its head up & say "yes, that's me "?

it's time you gave that part of you what it needs.

get clarity on how to move your embodied story towards sustainable empowerment, grounded in the full & complex beauty of who you are.

I woke from this dream of Saltos altered. It was as if body and soul were reconfigured and newly aligned to the compass of the Self. I woke from this dream of horse breathing with vulva deepened not only into the sexual embodiment of my being, but also into my role in service to the embodied healing of others. For after all, our relationship to our life force interweaves and nourishes the work that we do in the world.
