The physiological cessation of menses as a result of decreasing ovarian
function by David L. Hoffman, M.N.I.M.H.
Menopause is one of the major rites of passage human beings go through.
In our "civilized" society, menopause is too often approached
with dread by many women, fearing it as a time when their role as women
becomes devalued. It is a time of change in their role as mother, lover,
and wife. As people, unfortunately, tend to create their self-image and
persona from their perception of socially defined roles, becoming those
roles in time, there seems to be not much left when these roles are "gone".
From a different perspective, menopause can be seen as a great gift in
a woman's life, a liberation, an initiation. It presents an opportunity
to re-evaluate one's purpose in life, perhaps to change in many ways,
to see change not as something to fear but as an opportunity to embrace,
moving on to greater fulfillment.
stretches can benefit both the body and the mind, bringing energy
and balance. This is particularly helpful to women who are currently in
menopause or in menopause transition because their hormonal levels and
body chemistry may be fluctuating rapidly.
