What it is.
The Blood Spiral is a four-month journey of learning to track, map, and live by the unique truth of our body’s miraculous menstrual cycle. It is a framework for understanding and accepting yourself as an ever changing and flowering dynamic being, and a process for knowing and communicating our needs, clarifying priorities, strategizing your calendar, and empowering relationships and communities through blood wisdom.
The Blood Spiral honors that as womb-holding people, we are far more than our ability to procreate. We have incredible powers and wisdom in our blood that go way beyond reproduction. We are the earth herself, creating and giving death through our own creative impulse and earthbound momentum, mirroring and aligning with nature in all her complexity and magic and impulse towards seeking balance. In this journey we find that every day of the month holds unique power for us, and we learn to approach and wield these powers skillfully.
The Blood Spiral guides us towards embodying the Matriarch, and being the ever-flowing Spring that can nourish entire families, communities, landscapes….Bringing life-giving water to parched places within ourselves and out into the world around us.
What it isn’t:
The Blood Spiral is not a menstrual tracking app. It is not a fertility journal. It is not about reproductive education or hormonal mapping. (In fact, we barely even talk about hormones in the course.)
It is about what is true for you every day – how you feel, how you experience your truth, and use it to create a life that fits way better.
It is not one size fits all. It is not one set of rules to live by. It does not require us to fit ourselves into any constrictive shape that isn’t true to who we are.
The Blood Spiral honors that we are all unique, with different needs, styles, values, backgrounds, and desires for how to live. It is a very personalized journey to discover our own patterns and truths, and to define what we want and need to be nourished, and engaged in our lives. (To be captured on our custom Spiral Maps.) And through this process of understanding our individual selves better, we can see how we fit with others, where we align and how we can relate with more intimacy, understanding and show up in our truth.
Ways of engaging:
There are three ways of engaging and learning to live your best Blood Spiral life!
This is the most in-depth and complete way to go through the entire process, with our fully guided pre-recorded 4-part self-paced video series with framework, practice, ritual and mentoring support. This is a journey, a commitment and an initiation into full Blood Spiral Living.
This includes 4 two-hour videos, and is a 4-month commitment. Includes handouts, tools, motivational graphics. Self-paced, start whenever you want, flexible but very contained.
The second way is also self-paced, and it is with our instructional Blood Spiral E-book with printable PDF’s. This can be done alone over 4 months, or in a book-group that you create with others who desire to participate and go through the process with you. Take it in your own way, make it work for you. Do it with friends.
Sign up for the 2nd ever Blood Mystery School Session, where 20 of you will have the opportunity to go through the process live on zoom with me, starting Fall 2024. To get your name on the Waitlist – sign up for my email list/newsletter.

Tuning into my truth. Giving myself permission to feel all the things without judgment. Discovering my patterns. And then combining all of this into a magical map to follow – changed everything. Now, my life and the lives of those around me flow with more ease.

An Unearthing of my innate knowing—that has validated all aspects of my emotional and physical reactions to people, places, and things. An initiation into moving in rhythm with the world inside and around me.
-Brette Howard, Doula

I was invited into deeper intimacy with myself, and through that, deeper intimacy with those around me. I got to explore and discover the subtleties within my body ecosystem and how to harness it for my own power, evolution and growth.

The Blood Spiral Journey took me deeper into tracking, mapping, and then both understanding and working with my flow. It has given myself and now my family a way to live around the seasons of a bleeding woman. This journey continues to reveal subtle layers that have shown a way home to my true self.
Amanda Hall, Real Estate agent

The Blood Spiral Initiation is a radical reclaiming of energy and time. Now I work with the natural momentum of my own energy and capacity through the seasons of my cycle. Plan life to fit around my ever-flowing truth, maximize my own untapped super powers. I ask for what I want and need, communicate truth, and rest into slowness in the right moments.
This course will shift the way you live forever.

My Spiral Journey has helped me become more aware of the patterns that exist within the matrix of my body. It has helped me more deeply observe, and attune to, my own needs and desires and natural cycle of being. It has provided a sense of accountability and confidence in my own self-care and self-awareness. It has inspired me to be more transparent in communicating where I am at, what I have space for, and what I need.

My Blood Spiral Journey led me to deeper layers of myself than I ever knew possible. I learned how to connect, listen, track, and protect my body’s needs in a whole new way.
Becca, age 35
Therapist/ Yoga Teacher, Fayetteville AR
The Blood Spiral has opened a doorway into my relationship with my cycle in a profound way. After tracking every day for a few months, I now have a map with which to navigate my natural ebbs and flows, which offers me such grace in recognizing my needs, communicating them to my family, and supporting myself in the best way possible.
Through doing this work, I’ve also noticed increased self-acceptance, a reignited devotion to my daily writing practice, a greater sense of ease with wherever I am at emotionally and a feeling of being more connected with women who also spiral each month.
