Janet is co-author of ‘Tantric Sex and Menopause - Practices for Spiritual and Sexual Renewal’, a practicing psychotherapist since 1999, and TEDx speaker in Noosa, Australia in 2013. She has held The Making Love Retreat for couples, as created by her mentor and co-author, Diana Richardson, in Australia since 2012.
She has been a facilitator of women’s work for some 20 years and has had a long-held interest in the area of relationships and sexuality, holding couples retreats since 2009. Now 57, she has walked the path of menopause, a difficult journey for her, that was punctuated by the discovery of ‘The Making Love Approach’, during which a profound re-awakening of the body and healing was initiated, despite the apparent obstacles that menopause created. She found that the pathway of menopause, and its subsequent effects on the body, heralded of a new sensitivity that was to be honoured and ushered in a pathway to love that was to become her life work.
Janet is the creator of ‘Womantime - Ancient Wisdom for the Modern-Day Woman’, a feminine self-care retreat and course that grew out of the writing of the book, ‘Tantric Sex and Menopause’.
Janet lives in Noosa, Queensland, Australia and has two adult children and is now a grandmother of two beautiful granddaughters.
Did you know that a simple (but profound!) change of approach to the way we make love can alleviate many of the symptoms that we traditionally associate with menopause?
In this interview, Janet McGeever explains why women may experience these symptoms (lack of sexual desire, pain during intercourse, and a few others) at any stage of their lives, and why some report these specifically during the time of transition.
Her book Tantric Sex and Menopause (co-authored with Diana Richardson) is discussed in details, including the many options women have when they want to experience a dazzling sex-life through midlife and beyond.
