What Cyclical Schools students say...
“This Cyclical course has been amazing. It exceeded my expectations and defiantly provides the insight into the core foundations that are required to becoming a coach but also our very own menstrual cycle genius! It’s comprehensive to say the least, from business to cyclical wisdom l’ve found it dripping in rich, extensive and super useful tools and techniques. I’ve found myself excited to compete each call along with the material and remained focused throughout. I’ve found the call recordings useful when pausing the conversation to write notes. On some calls l’ve written over 8 pages! I’m really enjoying the work and looking forward to integrating it all. Thank you, l know you’ve poured your heart and soul into this. I’m grateful that you’re sharing your heart felt work with us and inviting us all to fly the flag of empowering many other menstruaters together. Thank you for being an incredible leader and role model. ”
– Abigail, Australia
“I am OBSESSED with the course. The way you have set it up works is working well for me with the live lecture, worksheets and assessments. I like that it is self paced with all the assignments will be due at the end – this is especially good for tweaking notes after the Q&A and 1-1 etc. It is also great how the 3 semesters are split and things are starting to click into place now! I don’t feel like I am studying in the traditional sense as getting together once a week for the live sessions and then working on the course work after is soo much fun!! Further, I like pushing myself with little reflections like this one, after classes too (altho I admit I don’t always remember, I will try go back and comment as I know it is probably helpful for you too). As I mentioned the only thing I would suggest for improvement is having a little mid way stretch/break, so that’s a good sign!”
– Coco, Australia
“The course thus far has blown.me.away! It has opened another whole realm of self-awareness for me. Yes, all the facts and ‘formal education’ are fantastic, but it is helping me daily to spend more time realigning my own existence, life and health expectations. Right now as much as it is a coaching course, it is guiding AND supporting me on such a personal level.”
– Tamlyn, South Africa
“I am loving Cyclical, each class is exceeding my expectations in what I am learning. I love how it is participatory and we can engage with Jema and each other in the session.
I am also having my own radical healing journey as we go along, and am finding so much love and peace in my feminine self!”
– Amber, New Zealand
