June – exams over and Menopause Cafe

My eldest son started his Leaving Cert last week, and it rained here in the West of Ireland? There are not many first days of state exams, I can remember there being rain. The garden is loving it, so I’m grateful too for it.

BIG NEWS – I’m going to be holding my first ever MENOPAUSE CAFÉ in my clinic space, to start off with – the first in Ireland, I believe!

A Menopause Cafe is a discussion with no pre-set agenda, where the topics are chosen by the participants on the day. It’s not a support group or led by experts. It’s OPEN to ALL. We want the whole world talking about the menopause, so that includes men and women and in between, all genders and all ages. Anyone living with a woman, with menopause symptoms is affected by it.

Menopause Café, Gort will be on Friday, July 8th from 7pm

This one will be on a donation basis, just to cover refreshments.

It’s a not-for-profit event.

Originally started in Scotland in 2017. A Menopause Cafe is a social franchise event model.

Menopause Cafes were inspired by Death Cafes, and we are grateful to Jon Underwood, for letting us copy their format.

The format is – to sit in small groups, and simply converse. The facilitator will ring a bell every 20 minutes or so, to encourage people to move groups, so people mix and converse with different people, only if they wish to do so. Create time and space to discuss the menopause without expectations or experts. The Menopause Cafe format is flexible, lightweight and straightforward.

If you’d like to join in, contact me to let me know, there’s no booking as such, I just want to have an idea of numbers.
