Is your period holding you back? Are you struggling with PMS? Do you want to better plan your social calendar, salary negotiations, or writing schedule?

At Madami, we want to help you become friends with your cycle!

While half the world’s population will menstruate, on a daily basis many of us struggle with understanding, managing and responding to our cycle in our personal and professional lives. Join this exciting and participatory workshop with Madami’s Maria Carmen and Aurelia to help you learn how to manage your cycle and have a more productive and peaceful period!

The workshop will provide you with useful tools on tracking and navigating your cycle phases so you can understand when and how to truly rest, plan workflow to improve your productivity and schedule important work and social events to increase your overall well being.

We welcome people from all backgrounds to join us with this being a gender-inclusive event. We look forward to having you!
