The Black Girl’s Guide to Surviving Menopause has been engaged in normalizing menopause and midlife through the power of stories and now we have the tools for you to carry on the dialogue.
In partnership with Kindra, Say More is a lovingly crafted collection of conversation and journaling prompt cards filled with thought-provoking questions, personal storytelling prompts, and creative ‘wild cards’ that empower you to deepen your relationships with people in, preparing for, or supporting loved ones through menopause and aging —as well as your relationship with yourself.
It seems we are ushered through every stage of life by a supportive community bringing us the resources to learn, grow and become. Except this one.
Our hope is that these cards will serve to remind us that there is strength in numbers, radical candor has the power to heal, and soulmates aren’t just lovers. We invite you to let these cards into your life with an open heart.
Let these cards get you thinking and rethinking. Let these cards crack you open to the possibilities. But above all, let these cards bring you joy.
Co-designing this deck with the Kindra team was an exercise in applying my experience in social justice, utilizing dialogical tools like Paulo Freire’s Popular Education and Pedagogy of the Oppressed paired with my deep love for nature, astrology, oracle cards, and tarot.
The Say More deck is meant to be a deeply personal discussion tool for the individual that also opens a space and opportunity for deeper connections with those walking with us during this journey. A return to the question of “who is speaking in this story?” is shared with invitation, a gentle reminder tucked inside each element. It is also a proper reader for the next generation who will follow on their own path, inviting them to share their own emergent story.
This is a path purposefully illuminated by the Black Girl’s Guide, Kindra and so many more folks dedicated to normalizing menopause and aging for us all. Join us and Say More.
It’s time to own that sharing our stories is our superpower. It’s time to Say More about our uniques experiences with this shared experience
