This might be the most powerful practice you can do ALL year!

Join me for a powerful practice, one that I have done for several years myself, to get you super clear and focused on how you want to move into the new year and also feeling full of gratitude for the year you have had (even if it was a tough one!).

You will need a journal or notepad and pen and a quiet space in your house.

I will guide you through a series of exercises and questions which will help reflect on this past year, with the intention to give you much more clarity going forward.

This is a potent practice that will support you in defining the lessons and blessings of 2023 so you can manifest an absolutely amazing 2024!

Wear comfortable clothing, make yourself cosy and make sure you will be undisturbed.

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
