ON MY PERIOD | PPH
It’s that time of the month y’all! We had a blast last November at WAAS Gallery and now our (diva) cup overflows with joy to present you with our next Dallas, TX event: ON MY PERIOD!
Why continue to hide your tampons and stained panties in shame when you could be celebrating the magic of menstruation with others?! If 50% of the human population has a moon cycle and it’s a completely healthy and natural part of life, how in the hell did they get us believing it was gross, smelly, unclean and embarrassing for all this time?? In celebration of our glorious monthly cycles, we invite you to join us in painting the town red by coming dressed in an all red outfits to honor The Flow!
This womb healing event is open to all ages and invites anyone who has ever had a menstrual period (or for young people, who will have one soon!), regardless of their current gender identity or sexual orientation.

The Curse" that is truly a Gift: Understanding and utilizing your menstrual (moon) cycle with Jennifer Gonzalez (@hermanas_sagradas) This class will first cover the physiological process and steps of the menstrual cycle in the body, followed by practical and empowering practices one may use to deeply connect with one’s emotions, body, nature and intuition during one’s bleeding time. The aim of this class is to educate on what exactly is going on inside of their body during menses, stripping away the toxic stigma/notion that our emotions are not valid and/or are irrational during PMS, shifting the perspective of how we view/relate to our cycle, and to invite us to warmly welcome our cycle as a true gift of cleansing and manifestation.
