Women experience menopause in various ways. For some, it is liberating to be done with their monthly cycles. Others grieve the loss of reproductive potential. Whether the passage into menopause is difficult or joyful, physically or emotionally, these rituals sanctify the changes aging brings to our embodied selves.
Ritual helps us pay attention. From the joy of a recovery to the grief of a funeral, ritual helps us inhabit the breadth of human experience.
