A trailblazing guide to menopause, filled with nourishing wisdom and practical advice to help you thrive as your empowered, confident self.

It's time to redefine menopause. This pivotal time of life is often mistakenly viewed as a health crisis that is ‘suffered from’ or ‘coped with’, and misinformation and myths around menopause can leave you feeling ignored and misunderstood.

Wise Power is the radical new story of menopause – illuminating its power and potential. Pioneers of the menstruality revolution and the founders of Red School, Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer explain how to embrace menopause as a sacred rite of passage, an initiation that grows your authority, steeps you in purpose and awakens you to great power and wisdom. They show you how to:

· prepare for menopause through each life stage, from menarche to your final menstrual cycles
· make sense of what you’re experiencing during perimenopause
· recognize and accept when you enter menopause, and trust that a meaningful process is at work
· navigate the five phases of menopause and receive their unique gifts
· embrace the rhythms of your postmenopause life, unlock your true potential and step onto your path of power and leadership

Written with humour, fierce tenderness and practicality, Wise Power restores the dignity of menopause, guiding you home to yourself – to a sense of belonging.
Founders and co-directors of Red School and co-authors of Wild Power, Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer have developed a radical new approach to health, creativity, leadership and spiritual life based on the power of the menstrual cycle. www.redschool.net

Wise Power is a radical revisioning of menopause as an awakening to the kind of power we need today, for the sake of the world.’ -- Lynne Twist, global visionary, co‑founder of the Pachamama Alliance and bestselling author

‘It’s more than time that women began having new conversations about menopause, telling each other stories about beginnings, not endings. Wise Power is a rich, inspiring and practical guide to navigating this time of bone‑deep metamorphosis – a thoughtfully crafted map charting the new opportunities ushered in by this profound initiatory experience.’ -- Sharon Blackie, author of Hagitude: Reimagining the Second Half of Life

‘At once tender and intimate, fierce and clear‑eyed, Wise Power is a bounty of rich observations and story‑telling that leads us through the labyrinth of menopause: that is, the years of perimenopause through to postmenopause. With robust truth telling, loving kindness and embodied wisdom, Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer have brought forth a map of menopause that is fresh, original and revolutionary. If you’re up for a deep dive into the power inherent in the menopause transition and keen to take charge of your bumpy journey to mature self‑knowledge, Wise Power is your book.’ -- Jane Bennett, creator of Celebration Day for Girls and co‑author of About Bloody Time

‘Reading the book Wise Power is an experience of feeling deeply seen, affirmed and honoured. As the authors, with breathtaking clarity, both practically and spiritually, guide us through the phases of the menopause transition, we are drawn back into an intimacy with the unfathomable rhythms that move us. An antidote to dusty hand‑me‑down ignorance, this book offers us a profound framework for reclaiming menopause as a spiritual death/rebirth initiation, as well as generous guidance for how to navigate each phase of the process.’ -- Chameli Gad Ardagh, founder of AwakeningWomen.com

‘Fizzing with potent wisdom. This is the book on the menopause I’ve been waiting for: straight talking, courageous, initiatory and wise, wise, wise.’ -- Lucy H. Pearce, author of Moon TimeBurning Woman and Medicine Woman

‘This book is essential. Finally a map and a guide for one of life’s greatest initiations and greatest confusions for women. No longer shrouded in shadow, the path becomes one of courage and beauty, letting go and allowing. Instead of holding on to what we know, we are shown how to understand a level of spiritual emergence that can and should transform our lives into expressions of personal sovereignty and authority. What a blessing of a book.’ -- Clare Dubois, founder of Treesisters (treesisters.org)

Wise Power reveals menopause as a time of awakening and spiritual activation. Like an elder sister, Wise Power guides us through the five stages of the menopausal initiation so that we may celebrate our well‑earned wisdom and timeless beauty.’ -- Tami Lynn Kent, author of Wild FeminineWild Creative and Mothering from Your Center
