What People are Saying
"Understanding that everything my body goes through during the cycle is normal is empowering, as opposed to being ashamed and grossed out. I'm embarrassed to say that even as a woman in my late 30s I did not have this level of understanding and knowledge prior to the course. Oh also, I really like (or should say was shocked and terrified) to learn about what the pill and other birth control methods actually do to your body. I really think this is information and knowledge that needs to be more widely known and understood by women (and men as well). This was a really great course. Veronica was a wonderful instructor and created a supportive and comfortable environment to share our stories during the class. It meant a lot." - Lauren A., Oakland, CA
"I like understanding how to chart - body temp and cervical fluid. I think it's really important to have that knowledge. Most women know nothing to little about their cycles. Even having some basic understanding can change your life for the good. The class inspired me to talk more about cycles/periods in general with people. Having more conversations around the topic is necessary and shouldn't be taboo." - Ashley R., Oakland, CA
"The class and journal are great tools to help women understand their cycle and rhythm as well as observe changes that may affect their overall health. Veronica is a great instructor and mentor. She is very knowledgeable, kind and approachable and I feel lucky to have been a part of this class." - Madison B., Vacaville, CA
"The menstrual class created space for a safe discussion and inquiry regarding our cycle and birth control stories. It’s inspired my own endeavors to create a dialogue with friends and family, too. Keep doing this!" - Gabriella, R. , San Leandro, CA
Veronica Ricksen is a clinical Western herbalist and creator of Kapu, a holistic care company for women. Veronica began tracking her cycle in 2015 when she had to learn about her menstrual cycle and fertility after 10 years of being on hormonal birth control. After several years of reaping the benefits of this practice, she decided to make a comprehensive resource, called the Menstrual Calendar Journal, and lead menstrual cycle workshops so other women could live with more flow, ease and happiness, too. Veronica lives in the East Bay with her curious kitty, Luna, and sweet husband, Mark.
