Episode #14. Midlife & Menopause: Portal of transformation

Menopause marks the death of your old Self and rebirth of your new Self. It is a portal for transformation in pretty much every woman’s life. While the first part of life is all about accumulation – think finances, house, husband, children, stuff, career – the second half of life is all about simplification.

Letting go of stuff, relationships, outdated belief systems, emotional and bodily toxins becomes crucial in this phase of life. Detoxing on all those levels clears the path to your future self and allows for an easeful transition not only mentally-emotionally speaking but also on a body related level.

A new self wants to be reborn at menopause. It can happen with ease in a clean environment (again think body, emotions, mind, relationships, your home). Sirena shares her own story how she simplified her life by shedding 95% of her possessions including her valued book collection, how that has impacted her body’s health and how she achieved lightness of being through menopause. Sirena is one of those wise elders you want to listen to especially as she has extensive experience leading other women through this transition as well.
