ABOUT MOON BODY & Miriam
Remembering the wild & sacred Self is an act of love.
Miriam Ropschitz is a writer, womxn's work facilitator and the creatress of Moon Body. She is a Jewish womxn of Eastern European and Middle Eastern descent born in Somerset, England. She left the UK and her job as a magazine editor at 24 and spent the next 7 years living between a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand and India where she studied, practised, and eventually taught body wisdom practices.
Ever since she was a girl, she was enraptured by the natural world and stories of mystic womxn and witches who inspired her to seek a life of truth.
Since her first bleed at age 11, she experienced painful periods and severe pre-menstrual syndrome. She was taken to the doctor and prescribed the hormonal contraceptive pill which she took until she was 19 years old.
Coming off the pill and finding her painful menstruation and PMS were still there but even worse, took her on a journey of self-healing. She studied natural healing modalities and began detoxing. She healed her painful periods, PMS and ovarian cysts using natural methods, peacefully, at home.
On the island she was free to cultivate a life of presence and softness. She spent many months in silent retreat, alone, in her house on a deserted hilltop overlooking the ocean. She sat many times with the grandmother plant teacher, Ayahuasca. She began teaching at one of Thailand's premier healing centres. This is when Moon Body was born.
Like Miriam, her work is constantly evolving to best serve the womxn who are called to it. She is currently based in Portugal where she offers workshops, retreats and one-to-one consultations for menstrual & fertile health.
