Menopause – Worthing, West Sussex
March 7, 2020 @ 9:30 am - March 8, 2020 @ 5:30 pm GMT£239 – £265
A 2–day workshop, with Alexandra Pope & Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer, exploring the psychological and spiritual process of menopause.
The workshop is for any woman who is in her early to mid forties and older. If you are younger than this but feel a strong desire to attend, please contact us.
Menopause is a key transition in a woman’s life in which both your body and spirit undergo a major transformation. This change is a normal and healthy part of a woman’s maturation process—an ending and a beginning in which you can deeply examine who you are, what you have done and who you want to now be. Menopause is an opportunity to truly come home to yourself, your Calling, and to experience a deep feeling of inner authority and meaning. It is a time of Awakening.
What does it mean to work with this process of transition? How can you support yourself? What life style practices do you need to introduce to support the whole of you to unveil this inner power?
Through teaching, sharing and experiential exercises you will:
- Learn about the psychological and spiritual dynamic of menopause, the inner map, leading you ‘home’.
- Gain insights into your own transition and how to support it
- Begin to taste the deeper You that now needs to be fulfilled (think of this as also your first remedy for healing any health challenges you may encounter).
- Learn other self-care practices for menopausal wellbeing.
Join us in Worthing for what we hope will be a fun, deep, tender, illuminating weekend in which you can face any fears and concerns you have and come away with guidelines, practices and companionship for your menopause journey.
Accommodation costs for those that need it are separate. Check out B&Bs, Airbnb and hotels in the area.

What women are saying…
“Thank you so much for offering us all a sacred space in which to explore and learn on such a gentle yet powerful weekend workshop.
I certainly got more than expected! Numbing myself with pot and alcohol didn’t work, years of retreats, counselling, workshops, meditations, studying Ayurveda, participating in ayahuasca ceremonies, living in the Peruvian Amazon, looking for my answers, also failed to bring me closure.
At the Red School weekend, the answers came to me so directly and unexpectedly that I’ve finally found peace. Obviously, there follows a lifetime of mourning to do, yet now I’ve processed all the information, the outcome is that I’ve never felt happier in my whole life, a sense of massive freedom and a huge weight that I’d never been able to shift before.
I feel so much gratitude to you, as I can now move forward without the restrictions that have held me back. Your work is magnificent, your attitude is pure compassion, your vibe is trust and love and the teachings are inspiring and healing. This is truly an enlightened path, thank you for such beautiful work!”
– Laura Bridge, Chef
“It’s taken me a week to process last weekend’s explorations and now be able to write to you. Firstly, last weekend feels like a pivotal time for me in my journey through life. You know when you experience something and you just know that you’ll never be the same again, well, that’s what happened to me last weekend. A huge shift in my thinking happened.
I have been on quite a journey (as we all have) and I had given myself such a hard time about how I thought I should be coping and how I was perceived by the others. Last weekend helped me realise just how far I have come and I have since given myself a huge pat on the back for my efforts. I am living a much more fulfilled, happier and empowered life than I ever could imagine possible. Your workshop has cemented in me the power of the menopause. Who knew I was doing so good? Now I do know and I’m so F*****g pleased with myself. I can see a life ahead of me that is exciting, full of love and light and no more fear.”

“…. how important this workshop has been to me, arriving at this time, giving me a language and a map to navigate these stormy seas of Menopause… I am deeply grateful and it is such a relief to have a new way of making sense of my feelings and experiences, of the different stages you laid out for us and how to identify and prioritise those fundamental needs, (no, rights, yay!) for rest, for nourishment and fun… for the right to indulge, play, love ourselves, nap, express our ‘No’s! and find our way to our ‘Yes’s’. From leaving the workshop, not only do I have a new sense of understanding which will enable to me to hold myself through this process far better than I was doing before but it has also given me a new excitement about this next phase (one I had been dreading until now – The Old Crone!) and which now I welcome…
Every woman should have the opportunity to do this workshop! (Everyman/partner should have a copy of the notes!!)”

“I think I’ve finally landed after the weekend workshop and notice that I felt a bit bereft after leaving the sanctity of you both and the other women. All in all, it was a gloriously affirming and magical journey, leaving me hopeful and with language and meaning that has such a quiet power. I felt that you paced the workshop just beautifully right for me, and I so enjoyed feeling and experiencing your individual wisdom and getting in touch with my core self, where I believe dreams might just be able to grow. I felt I had permission to be all that I wish to be, in whatever form that takes. That is truly a gift, thank you, thank you.”
– Vanessa Gaier, Psychotherapist Menopause Worthing workshop 2019
“I just wanted to reach out and thank you personally for the work that you offer around menopause. I did your menopause workshop 3 years ago and wrote a few notes in a little book that ended up in a bookshelf tucked away. I have increasingly become more and more permeable over the last 3 years and am now fully enraged, mad, grief-ridden and mushy. I have felt like chucking it all in and going on anti-depressants to calm the chaos……and then I remembered the notes in the little book tucked away. I am re-reading them and it’s like a soothing balm on my raw wounds. It’s settling me, it’s making me smile at the process, it’s guiding me deeper in this initiatory process. It’s holding my hand. I see your smiling face as you say these words that I read, I see your lightness, your humour and your grace. It is holding me through this time and I am welcoming it rather than fearing it again. Thank you, thank you, thank you for naming and claiming this rite of passage. For calming the chaos and creating a wonderful wall to bounce off !! Your work is beautiful, and I acknowledge you fully. In love, honour and respect.”

“The workshop was truly just what I needed & has helped put what I have been experiencing in my life in much better focus. I have recently bought & read your Wild Power book & found that wonderfully informative too. It was quite a challenge for me as I do find it hard to speak out & articulate in a group, especially about such personal experiences. But what a lovely bunch of women, so strengthening to hang out with them & be able to freely discuss what we are all going through in varying forms. So wonderful to finally have a language to give expression to all we are going through too & that knowledge feeds back some power. I haven’t hesitated in recommending this workshop to my friends – I feel they are also thirsty for this.”
