the power of your period

Wednesday, June 26th

Celebration of Marriage Counter Protest: If you didn’t make it to join us for the last counter protest, here’s another chance! Show your support of ALL kinds of families as we protest the Celebration of Marriage, which supports marriage between a man and a woman only. They hide their bigotry behind their claim of doing this for the sake of the children. We believe that all families need are loving members. Bring your signs, posters and the entire family for this important event. Details: Starts at 5:00 p.m. at the South Town Expo Center (9575 South State Street, Sandy, Utah 84070).

Saturday, June 29th

Reclaim the Power of Your Period: What if you could let go of the shame and silence surrounding your cycle and instead learn to reclaim the power of your period? You don’t have to identify as a yogi or a guru or a goddess to be empowered by your period (though you’re welcome too!). A little education and inspiration goes a long way, and in this workshop with Giuliana Serena of Moontime Rising, you’re going to get a lot!

This FREE Intro will provide an entertaining historical overview of feminine power and why women would want to care about their relationships with their cycles.

This event is open to anyone who is even the least bit curious! Every body is welcome, wherever you find yourself on the gender spectrum.

Sunday will be ladies only*, we’ll go deeper into the details of how to enjoy your period when it comes, and how to live in a body and period positive way throughout your cycle.

Details: Saturday is free, RSVP here! Sunday Workshop is $97, and includes a gift bag of period positivity! Space is limited, and those who register by Friday, June 28th will receive an additional gift! If you’re a Trans man who menstruates and would like to participate, please write to Giuliana@MoontimeRising.com.
