Urban Zen is delighted to have Christiane Northrup, M.D, as our ambassador for the month of March. In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, we couldn’t think of anyone more fitting than Dr. Northrup to collaborate with as we come together and center our thoughts and energies around the collective community of women. Dr. Northrup is a visionary pioneer and the world’s leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness. A board-certified OB/GYN physician who graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and did her residency at Tufts New England Medical Center, Dr. Northrup was also an assistant clinical professor of OB/GYN at Maine Medical Center for 20 years. Recognizing the unity of body, mind, and spirit, Dr. Northrup helps empower women to tune into their innate inner wisdom to transform their health and truly flourish.
Dr. Northrup is the author of two New York Times best-selling books, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause. In 2005, Mother-Daughter Wisdom, her third book, was voted Amazon’s #1 book of the year in both parenting and mind-body health and was nominated for a Quill Award. In her latest books, The Secret Pleasures of Menopause and The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook, Dr. Northrup outlines the crucial link between health and pleasure. Her books, which have been translated into 20 languages, have taught women worldwide how to create joyous and vibrant health throughout their lives.
Dr. Northrup has also hosted seven highly successfully public television specials. Her latest special is based upon the newly revised edition of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and began airing nationwide in June 2010.
Dr. Northrup now devotes her time to inspiring women worldwide to truly flourish on all levels through tapping into their inner wisdom. She does this through speaking engagements, on her weekly Hay House Internet radio show Flourish!, in television appearances and specials, on Facebook, and in her e-newsletter.
We invite you to join us in celebrating the groundbreaking work of Dr. Northrup this month. And, don’t forget to join us for our live Twitter conversation discussing the wisdom of women’s bodies on March 22!
