Ally Rugge, Founder

Embodiment practitioner.
counselor. writer. sociologist.
initiation mentor.
warrioress of the wild.

“We are not fighting for nature. We are nature, defending itself.”
Atossa Soltani, Founder of Amazon Watch

Committed to healing her debilitating Menstrual pain, Ally spent a decade educating herself with anything she could find on the Menstrual Cycle and related ailments. Through this process, she not only healed her cycle-related suffering, but discovered how to live in ‘Rite‘ relationship with her own rhythm, and just how deeply nourishing and necessary it is. She eventually compiled all her research and experience into a teachable, relatable, visually inspiring Embodied Cycle Awareness curriculum and guidebook called Seasons of the Cycle.
In 2016, she began teaching her curriculum along with a Cycle Connection method developed with a colleague, called Phasic|Ritual. After learning just how little we-who-bleed are taught about the true beauty of our bodies, Ally is now dedicated to making this empowering education common knowledge. She believes it is our birthright.

Rachael creates art to raise environmental awareness, social justice, healing and radical self-care. Cycles Journal is a lunar calendar, planner and menstrual tracker for inner healing.
