  • Mindfulness for the menopause

The menopause years - pre, present and post - are different for everyone. However, one thing many find in common is that it’s rarely without challenges.

The evidence base supports that the menopause years are an inconsistent experience, with an exhaustive range of physical, psychological, social and cultural influences.

Symptoms including sleep disturbances, hot flushes, night sweats, brain fog, and mood disorders in particular can place a significant burden on those experiencing them. In turn, they can also have wide-ranging implications for our family life, relationships, friendships, and careers.

Although a natural phenomenon, the menopause is not universally experienced. Those who suffer often struggle to identify the exact source of their symptoms and advocate for their particular needs. This chapter in life can therefore be particularly confusing, frustrating, embarrassing and scary, which may lead to an even more disheartening level of stress, anxiety and even depression.

About the Workshop

This half-day workshop will offer participants an opportunity to engage with their experience, helping to work with some of the emotional challenges that the menopause can – and often does – present.

The session will begin by recapping the foundations of mindfulness and mindful self-compassion before applying it directly to the experience of menopause. Throughout, we will explore how mindfulness can be used to help manage the associated stress, regulate emotions and reduce reactivity to support a better quality of life.

In addition, the workshop will provide an open and supportive setting to bring people together around this shared experience and explore this period of transition with compassion for ourselves and others. This will help to support a more mindful and skilful approach to handle changes in body and mind.

During the workshop, participants will learn:

  • Key evidence-based facts about the menopause years (pre, present and post)
  • What mindfulness is and how it can support us around menopause
  • The importance of self-compassion and how to deploy compassion practices
  • Methods and practices for cultivating emotional regulation, reducing stress, and building a firm foundation for the menopause years
  • Mindfulness practices to support the menopause beyond the workshop.
