WOMEN’S WISDOM: natural wellness strategies for the menstrual years (published by Findhorn Press)

Laurel Alexander is our wise woman, teaching women in the tradition of the village elder about our bodies, our hearts, and our minds. She is the keeper of women’s wisdom — a collection of rituals, herbs and nutritional prescriptions for keeping a woman’s body healthy and strong throughout the journey from childbearing years to menopause. In Wellness Strategies for the Menstrual Years, Alexander debunks the culturally perceived notion of menstruation as a burden. Instead, we celebrate our moontime, a woman’s period of heightened creativity. We celebrate our sacred role as the giver of life. This book is a must-have gift for young women entering womanhood, and a treasure trove of information for all women to use monthlyVicky Thompson, New Connexion Journal
