Day 3 - Winter {Menstrual Phase}

            Day 3 - Winter {Menstrual Phase}

Join me #28daywelcomebackyourcycleawarenesschallenge
This 28 day challenge was born from a place of welcoming back the whole month of a woman's cycle. Often it's just the time of menstruation that we give any consideration to our cycle.  Our complete cycle is the inner compass to our bodies needs, and a guide to living a more balanced, meaningful connected life.
