The wisdom of heart energy in midlife through the lens of Chinese medicine:

Chinese medicine takes its inspiration from the natural world. There is no separation of between us and our surroundings, our mind or our body. Everything is connected.

The Heart is the Empress of the body, ruling over all functions. It has a special connection to the mind and its imbalance is often connected to insomnia, anxiety and in some instances fatigue.

In this special workshop, Jo Darling (women’s health acupuncturist and founder of Menopoised) will share insights from traditional Chinese medicine into why we become wiser as we transition through menopause - and how we can nourish our heart in midlife. Petra Coveney, founder of Menopause Yoga (2013) will explain how TCM informs her specialist yoga techniques to help women manage menopause symptoms holistically. Both Jo and Petra embrace the beautiful concept from TCM that views the menopause as a woman's Second Spring with opportunities to rebalance her life and lifestyle for long term health and happiness.

Petra and Jo are volunteering their time so that 100% of ticket sales can be donated to support the Brighton Natural Health Centre, which has been serving the local community in Brighton since 1981. The BNHC is in financial difficulties due to the Covid pandemics and desperately needs everyone's help to keep its doors open. Whether you live in the Brighton and East Sussex area or not, this workshop is a way to show your support for classes that benefit thew whole community.


Jo Darling also produces natural acupuncture-inspired products for menopause.
