Overview


Kristi Meisenbach Boylan follows up her highly acclaimed The Seven Sacred Rites of Menopause with a beautifully written, insightful book about menarche—the first menstrual cycle—and its effect on a young girl's spiritual journey from maidenhood to motherhood.

While more and more parents are explaining in clear, open terms what happens physically to their daughters as they move through puberty, they often leave out the emotional implications. More importantly, they often fail to address the spiritual impact of the transition.

Meisenbach Boylan believes that parents need to make room for positive rituals in the lives of their daughters. These rites can act as a spiritual map for our daughters to follow as they make their way through the perilous landscape of adolescence. Young girls need these rites in order to truly understand that menarche is the central event that occurs as they make the pilgrimage from the safe cocoon of their parent's world into a world of their own. And more importantly, they need these rites in order to understand that it's okay to weep and to feel lost and alone at certain points along the way.

The author not only outlines these rites, but includes celebrations for parents and their daughters to share during this amazing time of growth. Although it often seems like an overnight event, the changes that transform a girl from maidenhood to motherhood do not happen instantaneously. The Seven Sacred Rites of Menarche shows parents how to join their daughters on this wondrous journey.

The Seven Sacred Rites of Menarche is pure magic. Kristi Boylan tells the truth about both the pain and joy of the adolescent girl's coming of age. And she also provides us with a remarkable blueprint for honoring and nurturing a girl's spirit through the process, so that she stands a far better chance of growing into a strong and healthy woman.” —Christiane Northrup, author, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

The Seven Sacred Rites of Menarche is one of those rare books that can change lives. Kristi Meisenbach Boylan writes with an amazing degree of sensitivity and insight about a young girl's struggle with the physical and spiritual changes that come with adolescence. Anyone who is raising a daughter should read this book!” —Michael Gurian, author, The Wonder of Girls and Boys and Girls Learn Differently!
