This EndoLife Book Club is here! And we're kicking off with Lisa Lister's Code Red on March 3rd!
Why have I chosen this as our first book? Well, for a start, it's been sitting on my bedside table (that's not true, I don't have a bedside table, it's on the floor, by my bed) for waaaay too long.
Secondly, I am much better with my cycles this days. I know I feel like super woman when I'm ovulating, I know I feel depressed and fatigued before I'm due on. But I want to get much, much deeper. Instead of working against my body, I want to work with it all month. I want to be the best I can be when livng with endometriosis. I don't mean striving, striving, striving and ignoring my body's needs and natural states, I mean learning when how to work with it to feel good and knowing when to slow down and take care of myself.
It's also about helping us get to grips with the basics of our cycle. How many of us live with endometriosis and what feels like constant, indescribable period pain? And yet we know very little about our cycles? Don't feel ashamed about this, I don't either - menstrual wellbeing hasn't ever been high up on the curriculum. So now I want us to do something about it, educate ourselves and understand our bodies and how we can support them to feel empowered, in control and good.
Lisa Lister has endometriosis, and the experience of living with the disease has helped her get in touch with her body again and actually work with it to feel better and manage the disease. So she's been there, she gets it and she's created a way to help live with the condition.
This EndoLife Book Club
If you're joining the book club, the first official month begins March 3rd - yep, the first day of Endometriosis Week. Woo! Double whammy.
We will read a new book every month (let me know if you think this isn't enough time, I'm happy to improve and adapt), beginning the first Saturday of each month.
We will chat and share our thoughts, learning and success stories on Facebook in our private group: This EndoLife Book Club (just search in FB and request access to the group), or via the Instagram hashtag #thisendolifebookclub
I can't wait to see you there!

Yep, your period is way more than PMS, carb cravings and lady rage, your menstrual cycle/period/ragtime/ - insert whatever you call your ’time of the month’ here - is actually a 4-part lady code, that once cracked, will uncover a series of monthly superpowers that can be used to enhance your relationships with others, build a better business, have incredible sex and create a ‘bloody' amazing life.
Code Red, from the creatrix of thesassyshe.com, Lisa Lister, is a call to action. A rallying cry thats you to explore, navigate and most importantly, love your lady landscape.
You’ll learn how to live and work in complete alignment with the rhythms of nature, the moon and your menstrual cycle, be inspired by insights from Wise and Wild Women like Meggan Watterson, Alexandra Pope and Uma Dinsmore Tuli and gain access to easy-to-follow strategies and SHE flow practices. You'll be invited to re-connect with your true nature as a woman, tap into the transformative power of your innate feminine wisdom and use your menstrual cycle as an ever-unfolding map to crack your lady code.
