A year and a half ago I took Avishag’s course to learn about my body’s rhythms and learn when I can get pregnant. I learned so much about my body and in general, how a woman’s body works. I was in awe and so appreciative of Avishag for showing how natural it can and should be to be so “in the know”. I had a history of pcos and was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to get pregnant naturally. After practicing my charts for 5 months and learning when I was fertile, I got pregnant on my 2nd try! It was so cool. Fast forward to now and I have a beautiful 7 month old daughter. I am forever grateful to avishag for teaching me the method and doing it in a way that is fun and comfortable.
Yesterday I participated in the first of 4 meetings of the fertility awareness method, given by the magical Avishag maya, It’s amazing to gain such insight into and responsibility for your body I finally feel that I’m ready for that. I feel that it’s a precious gift I’ve given to myself. Avishag is truly amazing and I highly recommend studying with her, It will change your whole perspective on how you perceive your femininity, your menstrual cycle, the subject of fertility and life in general! Im so excited.
Dearest Avishag, I’m glad I got to meet you yesterday. You are charming! It was very interesting and we had a great time. You have a wealth of important and interesting knowledge and you shared it beautifully.
Hey Avishag, it was nice to meet you. I really loved the concept you used of refuting myths and the lightness you brought to the meeting.
I really recommend this lecture. Avishag explains everything in such a clear and pleasant way. This information is so important!…
From a student who had very long cycles of 28 day cycles for 3 charts already. I never had that !!! this month I am celebrating one year, practicing the method and I’m so happy that i started it. It’s like my body reorganized itself, I can’t explain it otherwise. I really identify with the Traditional Chinese Medicine concept regarding stagnation and the need for movement. I will move myself and all that is stuck in my life – and it’s amazing to see how my body responds. Thank you!
I felt like I’m gaining back control over my body. Avishag taught me to know myself in a different way. I thought the process would be longer, as I know I have polycystic ovaries, but on the second chart, I got pregnant.
Why don’t they teach us this in school?! I remember that the first emotion I had upon learning the method was anger… at what I could have known about my body and was hidden from me all those years.
We already started taking tests when we met Avishag, who ended up saving us a lot of time, money and frustration. Today I know how to speak with my doctors and make decisions easily regarding my body.
My sister and I decided that we wanted to get pregnant at the same time. Avishag wouldn’t promise us anything, but to do our best. And it worked. Thank you Avishag for your humor, patience and open mind.
The truth is that I was thinking about you lately. I’m not sure you remember our correspondence after the course, so just to remind you; I asked for your consultation after using the method and coming to the realization that I have a hormonal imbalance. As a result, I got tested and discovered that I have polycystic ovarian syndrome. Anyway, I was waiting for the opportunity to tell you that following your advice, I had acupuncture treatments that contributed significantly to balance my cycle, and it was also was a great experience.
These days I’m 5 months pregnant! I’m so happy and I appreciate the natural method you taught me and the Chinese Medicine you introduced me to.
I wanted to thank you for your advice and also share a happy story with you.
First of all, this knowledge is basic, whether a woman is going to use it as a method of birth control or a way to conceive. I felt I received a huge gift – knowledge that was hidden from me because I didn’t know to ask for it. I came to learn about the method because I wanted a birth control method that would not interfere with my body and I received something greater- to know myself more and understand how much the female body is wonderful And regarding using it as a birth control – on one hand it requires a deep level of knowing the body and the processes it goes through each cycle, and on the other hand you achieve a sense of control and freedom.
I discovered the fertility awareness method and Avishag through the Red Tent gathering. It’s been long time since I wanted to learn the method and apparently something became ripe within me and the right teacher for me showed up. After more than a year of tracking and charting I can say that the method is just amazing on every level, practically, emotionally and simply FAM has proved itself also as a birth control method (one year without any other contraceptives except the 5 days of my fertility window) And now after 3 tries, I׳m already 16 weeks into a healthy pregnancy In addition to being practical, the method gives you a deeper way of knowing your body and the energy of each phase of the cycle. It allowed me to pay attention to the rhythm of the cycle of my body so I could know how to interact with my body and what kind of yoga practice I should do, same as which nourishing foods I should choose.
And knowing what the right rhythm is for me at each phase.
While learning the method, I was also completing my studies of feminine yoga, which brought me a deeper understanding of the method by fitting the practice to the different phases of the menstrual cycle.
The course helped me learn things about my body I wish I had learned in high school.
Since the course – I feel a lot more attuned to my body, and I am able to understand and identify patterns about my cycle.
I definitely recommend the course to any woman, whether she wants to use the method as a form of birth control, to have safer sex, or to learn about her cycle of fertility.
I recommend to all women, to take responsibility with joy and happiness over your life, and your body and to come and learn the method FAM is simple to apply and it doesn’t take too much effort. It’s the minimum that we can do, to know ourselves better.
