Unprecedented insight into the feminine body and on using its natural rhythms to heal, find balance and reconnect to our emotions.
Your power lies in the rhythm of your menstrual cycle. Connect with your body on a deeper level to find healing, balance and wholeness.
The menstrual cycle is a vital and vitalizing system in the female body, yet our understanding of and respect for this process is both limited and distorted. Few women really know about the physiology of their cycle, and many do not see it as an integral part of their health and wellbeing, let alone as a potential guide to emotional and spiritual empowerment.
Wild Power tells a radical new story about feminine power. It reveals:
· Your inner architecture and the path to power that is encoded in your body
· How to tune in to the rhythm and changes of your menstrual cycle to realize the fullness and beauty of your authority
· Three 'maps' to guide you through the energies, tasks and challenges presented as you journey through each cycle
· How to work with your Inner Seasons to pace your energy, calm your nervous system and gain insight into your overall wellbeing
· How to work with your cycle to channel spiritual forces, affirm your expression in the world and achieve a deep sense of belonging
Written with humour, tenderness and practicality, and packed with women's stories and quotes throughout, Wild Power will restore women to wholeness and reinstate the full majesty and grace of the Feminine.

‘Finally. It’s happening. Women are waking up to our real power – the power that comes through our physical bodies – our menstrual cycles and lunar wisdom. Power that has been shamed and vilified for centuries, but which can no longer be kept silent or kept down. Let Wild Power lead you to its very source.’
Dr Christiane Northrup, author of Goddesses Never Age and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
‘The female body reconstitutes the world. And yet the very blood that makes that possible became the reason that we are less holy, less capable of holding positions of authority or speaking on behalf of the divine. It’s time we remember that there’s no scripture more sacred than being in our own skin. Embodiment is our holiest spiritual path. And Wild Power paves the way.’
Meggan Watterson, author of Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked
‘Wild Power is a beautifully conceived and articulated work on a subject long neglected yet central to women and society: the conscious and integrated experience of the menstrual cycle. This book charts a wise, healing and holistic process of self-knowing and empowerment through developing menstrual cycle awareness, guiding the reader towards sustainable wellbeing grounded in the natural rhythms of the body and the seasons. If you follow the pathway described in this book, your whole life will be radically enhanced as a result. Welcome to the full spectrum version of being a woman.’
Lara Owen, teacher and consultant on menstrual well being, and author of Her Blood is Gold
‘Reading Wild Power is to be initiated into a source of a profound power and wisdom, which for many of us perhaps was forgotten, but as we learn through this gem of a book, was never lost. From their decades of practice and studies in the realms of women’s cycles, with breathtaking generosity and luminosity, the authors guide us back to the humble authority of true embodiment. I believe this is the guidebook needed for these times, when millions of women are hearing the call to lead the way for humans to live in alignment, in collaboration and honouring of body and earth. I am profoundly grateful that this book is finally here. For the benefit of us all.’

They walk with you as you discover the beautiful complexity of your cycle, show you how to awaken and live your Wild Power, and lead you deeper into the joy, the sweet tenderness and the love and vision that it offers you. This book is a powerful addition to the current evolution of the story of the menstrual cycle and the awakening of women.’
Miranda Gray, author of Red Moon and The Optimized Woman, and originator of the Worldwide Womb Blessing
‘If you can’t imagine anything less interesting or less appealing than menstrual cycle awareness, but wouldn’t mind a dose of Wild Power, take a leap of faith and venture into Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer’s new book of that name. With mastery born of deep personal contemplation and paradigm-changing commitment, be intrigued, be amused, be moved, be surprised, and perhaps be angry too that no one enlightened you to the extraordinary potential hidden within your menstrual experience. Until now. Let Alexandra and Sjanie guide you, step by step, and discover your very own Wild Power.’
Jane Bennett, Author of A Blessing Not A Curse and Girl Topia
‘Alexandra and Sjanie are true gurus of menstruality consciousness. Their work is vital, timely and empowering for everyone. Wild Power is the new bible for every woman, and every man who lives and works with women. Read this book, follow its guidance and give to everyone you love.’
Uma Dinsmore Tuli PhD, author of Yoni Shakti: A Woman’s Guide to Power and Freedom Through Yoga and Tantra
‘Western women long for a modern cosmology that inspires us to be our whole selves: passionate, powerful and instinctual. Wild Power is the golden thread in a living tapestry that is being woven by women around the world. It helps make sense of not just our cycles, but our souls and our deeper calling to create a new story for womankind, the womb of the world. Profoundly practical and intensely spiritual, may Wild Power one day be a required text – for both genders – in all high schools and colleges.’
