Taharat Hamishpacha Refresher Course

About the Course
Confidently take this mitzvah back into your hands

In this course, we will re-familiarize ourselves with the laws of Taharat Hamishpacha. We will explore the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of the menstrual cycle. With a full appreciation of our female anatomy and physiology, we will access the gateway to tune into the ancient female wisdom and step into our authority as WOMAN. Taharat Hamishpacha is the perfect structure to facilitate self-discovery, personal connection, and growth.

Let’s learn together. Let’s empower each other. Let’s connect with our inner female essence. Let’s reclaim this mitzvah.

***You must be accepted into this course.***
