Full Circle Health is a side project that emerged when I was stuck on them in the first part of the year. And I’m very proud of it – it’s not just a book… but a charting system!
For most of my adult life I have been trying to explore and express what it means to inhabit my cyclical female body. I have picked up many tools and tried many approaches to charting my inner and outer life. I have charted my menstrual cycles, my moods, energy, habits, food intake, dreams… This was done in various written journals, sketchbooks, Excel spreadsheets, Leonie Dawson’s Life and Business Planners… not to mention my dream journal and cycle-tracking diary. So many books and scraps of paper piled beside my bed, with my computer balanced precariously on top. Keeping track of my health and life was almost a full-time job… but guaranteed I could never lay my hands on the right book at the right time.
In early January I was filling in the first days of our Womancraft Publishing Moon Dreams charting diary, whilst simultaneously writing Medicine Woman, when I realised that I needed an integrated space to reflect and capture every level of my body-mind. Something to stand testament to the feminine aspects of my body and inner life, which otherwise are hidden, silenced and untended. I needed a tool to help to re-train my body and mind, which would bring me into daily reconnection with them. I needed a system that would combine all these aspects into one easy-to-use format, so that I could have all that information in one place, at my fingertips. It needed to be something:
- That integrated all the parts of my health – cycle, physical, mental, energetic.
- That incorporated words and images.
- That was structured yet flexible, and allowed space for me to reflect on the fullness of my experience. | That encouraged me to turn up to it daily.
- That enabled me to compile and easily track habits and symptoms in a monthly format, in order to get a detailed overview of my health.
Full Circle Health is the answer. It is an integration and expansion of all of my previous books and my own personal practice. It brings me full circle in my own work, combining my visual and written work, with my passion for women’s health and empowerment. And it is a departure from my previous books, in that it offers an integral visual framework, and values images as much as words.
Full Circle Health is a creative way to journal each day, offering a framework to support you which is flexible enough to be tailored to your unique body, abilities, needs and cycles that you are experiencing right now.
