The School of Secrets presents

MENSTRUATION PROGRAM

for  pre-and-teens

A unique program of 7 virtual sessions
with Carmen Vicente and invited teachers
From August to November 2022

The School of Secrets invites teens who are about to menstruate or menstruating to a unique experience to revitalize their connection with the body, the senses, art, and health.

The Passage of Rite:

Initiation, transit, and knowledge

As a student, you will receive knowledge about

The
Rite

Through the rites, we enter extraordinary spaces that allow us to mobilize and process emotions and sensations. We transform everyday life and invite intention and attention to be present for health and balance.

Transits mark a benchmark of personal transformation. Understanding the transit of menstruation (every time we receive it, not just the first time) helps us to get closer to the mysteries and secrets that come with it. The rite of initiation and transit has been a fundamental tool in the education of humanity and generations.

the
knowledge

Education about our cycles leads us to the path of self-knowledge, perception, intuition, and assertiveness. A woman's menstrual blood is a biological component that allows the continuity and fertility of life. In opposition to the shame and pain that this milestone often generates, blood is a state that develops a relationship of wisdom, intimacy, and health.

the
transit

We have lost the charm of the inheritance that is menstruation, this disconnects us from our physical, emotional, and mental health. Although the knowledge of that power is not active in our daily consciousness, the source is still with us.

This is called education, this is called inheritance.

 

We are menstruating and we have not been educated or instructed in it. Nor what it is to be a woman, her condition as a woman, and her transits.

 

That's what I do at the School of Secrets. Where I teach women of all ages matters of life, health, dreams, vision, perspective, and freedom.
