Menopause Online Workshop
In the image-obsessed culture of the West, where the emphasis is on youth and perceived beauty, menopause is generally viewed as a loss; everything from the power of transition and the gain of wisdom are pushed to the side where menopause is often seen as a disease or a disorder with no acknowledgement of a life full of other beneficial transitions in addition to physical ones.
Everyone experiences menopause differently; it’s not just something you ‘go through’. Western medicine focuses mainly on treating disease. Chinese medicine looks at your entire well-being – the correct and sensible approach to examining menopause, focusing on the benefits and positives on what is often a profound change in a woman’s life.
Menopause can be a very powerful and creative time in a woman’s life contrary to what society and advertising suggests.
In Chinese medicine and in a lot of the ancient cultures women in menopause where respected for their wisdom and experience of life. It is the end of menstruation and the beginning of a new stage for women which was considered a very powerful time.
The status of older women in cultures seems to be a key influence on how they experience menopause. In cultures where older women are valued, menopause is either a positive experience or not even noticed.
But in the youth-obsessed culture of the West, where the emphasis is on youth and beauty not maturity. Menopause is seen as “loss” – of fertility, rather than on transition and “gain” – of wisdom and freedom, the medical or “disease” model of menopause is dominant.
