The Great Man Within

Oct 5, 2020


“Menopause doesn’t just change the woman,

it changes all the people around her in her life.”
-- Alexandra Pope, Co-Founder of The Red School

Menopause is the time in a woman’s life where menstruation ends, signaling the end of her child bearing years, along with her monthly cycle and ushering in one of the biggest transitions of a woman’s life.

Chances are you have more than a few women in your life who are going through menopause right now.

This could be your wife, mother, sister, aunt, boss, co-worker, employee or any number of other women in your ecosystem right now.

A Great Man is willing to make the effort to understand this extraordinary transition in a woman’s life and how he may play a supportive role in the process.

And our guide for that discussion is the elegant, wise and delightful Alexandra Pope.

  • Alexandra is post-menopausal herself; she was prepared for the dramatic changes she was about to experience, and welcomed it as an initiation to a new kind of spiritual maturation

In this Episode:

  • A definition of menopause, when it happens in a woman’s life, and what transitions it brings
  • What men need to know about menopause to be prepared and supportive
