As you may have guessed, menstrual art – or period painting – means using your menstrual blood to make art, for example on paper, or by adorning yourself with it.

Even though the idea makes my stomach queasy, I like to challenge myself to have these important conversations.

And while there’s both intrigue and disgust inside of me, I’m also wondering if menstrual art could become a portal into a deeper, even more intimate connection with myself, with my womb. Because if I myself am whole and holy, why wouldn’t my menstrual blood be as well?

That’s why today, my guest Camilla and I talk about menstrual art and reclaiming the disgust, the connection and the pleasure that may come with this intimate practice.

Join us as we dive into:

  • My personal hesitations regarding menstrual art
  • How we can develop compassion for ourselves as we sit with different, maybe even conflicting emotions around taboo topics
  • What happened when Camilla first offered her blood back to the Earth
  • Whether or not it’s a smelly process, and the role of the olfactory sense for our human existence
  • Ideas how you can dip your toes into menstrual art at any age and any stage of life (yes, even post menopause) and reclaim it as a practice of intimacy and connection to your own inner power

It’s never too late to heal the relationship with yourself, with your body, with your cycle, with your blood!

Camilla and I would love to know:

  • What comes up for you when you think of using your menstrual blood to make art – or even adorn yourself?
  • What is (or was, if you’re post-menopausal) your relationship with your menstrual blood like?
  • What has stood out for you from what we’ve been sharing?
