The Goddess in You is especially created for girls aged 9-14 years, offering a unique, interactive approach to establishing cycle awareness, positive health and well-being. It contains thirteen beautifully designed cycle mandalas, each illustrated with a goddess from Greek mythology.

Inspired by the archetypical work of the Jungian psychoanalysts, Clarissa Pinkola Est?s and Jean Shinoda Bolen, The Goddess in You is a tool that works on many different levels. Through the charting of their menstrual cycle, girls learn about their cyclical nature, internal rhythms and gain understanding of their interaction with their own physical body. The goddess archetypes offer a diverse selection of female characteristics to inspire and model, helping to develop self-awareness, and self-acceptance and to celebrate the diversity of all the girls and women in each girl's life.

Easy to understand and attractive to use, this powerful book celebrates what it means to be a girl growing into womanhood.
- 13 double-sided cycle mandalas illustrated with goddesses
- Instructions for use
- An introduction to the 13 featured Greek goddesses
- A basic, age-appropriate introduction to the menstrual cycle
- Self-care tips for health and well-being

Praise for The Goddess in You

The Goddess in You is more than a simple cycle tracking resource; it is the tool that has been missing from the pro-period generation's toolkit. The empowered embodiment of our daughters depends upon not only their menstrual education, but the connection to their sacred nature. With the goddess archetype as their foundation our daughters are given the blueprint to grow into powerful wise women.
Amy Wilding, author of Wild & Wise and Maiden's Journey: A Coming-of-Age Circle for Mothers & Daughters

A simple and beautiful invitation to help girls build a relationship with their menstrual cycle. We highly recommend this book for all young menstruating women.
Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer, co-authors of Wild Power

A beautiful resource... Both psychologically sophisticated and delightfully simple to use, I warmly recommend this book to girls, parents and schools.
Jane Bennett, author of A Blessing Not a Curse

The Goddess in You offers a powerful, creative, and developmentally appropriate path for girls to get to know and love their bodies, menstrual cycles and selves even deeper.
Melia Keeton Digby, author of The Heroines Club: a mother-daughter empowerment circle

Meet the authors: Patrícia Lemos and Ana Afonso

Patricia Lemos and Ana Afonso, authors of The Goddess in You, Womancraft Publishing

Patrícia Lemos is a practicing hypnotherapist, fertility coach and menstrual educator with a Master’s Degree in Public Health. She is passionate about girls having positive education during puberty and supporting their mothers during this very important and foundational transition.

Ana Afonso is an artist with a 5-year degree in Fine Art and a Masters in Drawing. She is currently writing her PhD thesis on graphic design about picturebooks and ‘authorstrators’. Now and then Ana is a teacher or a graphic designer but most of the time she’s a happy, free spirited illustrator. You can catch her running or biking at daybreak collecting photos of the sunrise over the river Tagus – a ritual that combines what she calls “active meditation” with being grateful for living in such a wonderful city as Lisbon. (yoga, kayaking and swimming are also on the list).

Ana believes everyone can be empowered by imagery and archetypes, so, whenever she finds it, she tries to capture the healthy running wolf, the burning rising woman, the goddesses in us! See more of her work on the site and the sunrises on instagram: anafonso.com / http://instagram.com/anafonso_com
