Let’s face it. Women sort of have an extra issue at hand. Once a month, for anywhere from three to eight or nine days, we are modifying our schedules to accommodate our bodies, which have decided to bleed. Sometimes heavily.
Yet, I like to think of myself as becoming more of a woman during my period. It is not that I am not a woman during the times when I am not bleeding…rather, it is when I am bleeding when I feel closer to the Goddess, when I feel her inside of me, around me, filling with her presence.
And so, each month, I am and I become a woman,
Is there anything like that for a man, other than the moon and sun rituals of passing time?
