Wow, have you seen our 2014 class schedule? It is looking great! Two classes have already started and the year is just beginning.

And we have two – count ’em TWO! – Premenopause Transition courses scheduled as well: June 8th and August 9th.

The Transition classes are complementary to the Main Class Series. As the name implies, in the Main Class Series you learn all you need to know to practice the sympto-thermal method, but these two type of life events, postpartum and premenopause, can be a little tricky and have special rules in regards to interpreting the mucus patterns that are affected by the changing hormone levels. Amazingly, the rules for both are just about the same which is why CCL has combined the courses into one book simply called Transitions Student Guide. Though rules may overlap at times, the end result is different (return of fertility after childbirth vs. approaching the end of the fertile years), and so it is taught in two separate courses.

At this time, Postpartum classes are scheduled upon request, usually because the time when a woman is ready for that course depends upon her due date and so on. The Premenopause class, however, is something that a woman may take anytime, usually close to the time that she suspects the change is coming or that it will come in a year or two. Learning the materials ahead of time is always helping not only in successfully interpreting cycles but also to prepare, even emotionally, for the changes to come, and to learn ways to stay healthy during the changes.

For those with current membership to CCL, there is no additional cost to take any Transition course, or, for that matter, an Upgrade Class for those who would like a refresher to the Main Class Series. The only cost is that of the student guide books, which can be purchased when registering for a class. For those without current membership, there is simply a small fee in addition to the book.

So, check out our schedules, bookmark or pass them along! You never know who might be interested, and we can always use the extra help in spreading the word.
