Ruby May works with the menstrual cycle, as a tool for self-leadership and social change and she is the founder of the international community Know Your Flow. Known as ‘cycle wisdom’ or ‘cycle awareness’, Ruby supports women to live in relationship with their menstrual cycles and inner wisdom. We also talked about how our menstrual cycle affects your libido and how you feel as a sexual being. This is vital knowledge for all women with menstrual cycles.

Her current work is centred around the menstrual cycle, as a tool for self-leadership and social change.
