The Red Tent Society
The Red Tent Society is a gathering of women of all ages and backgrounds who meet at or closest to the new moon. This is a time when most girls and women are menstruating and in most need of support, rest and reflection. The Red Tent allows each participant to explore new ideas and reflect on their personal journeys. Each month focuses on a different theme, everything from sacred teachings of Mary Magdalene and sacred sexuality, to creating belly casts, re-birthing ceremonies, dance offs, and even a little anger release so we can see the beauty in the from the trauma. The Red Tent allows for your creativity to flow and gives women the freedom to express themselves without fear or judgement. Women have the freedom to share their strengths and vulnerabilities and together they share life's highs and lows. It is through these ceremonies, experiences and discussions that we find deeper understanding and compassion for ourselves and others. This is a timeless tradition observed by ancient cultures where women dive deep within to uncover their raw, authentic selves. Women long to be Free to Be. Their purpose is to walk in rhythm with nature. When women connect, communities thrive. The Red Tent serves as a regular forum for empowering girls and women of all ages. Every decade in our lives is special and we each have something to offer. We each have a piece of the puzzle.
Traditionally, girls would enter the Red Tent as soon as their bodies began to cycle with the moon. In the tent they would learn about their fertility cycles and every other faucet of being a woman. A Red Tent is a gift of mystical understanding of womanhood where knowledge will be shared and women will learn the value of their bodies as physical temples and how to set personal boundaries accordingly . A Red Tent provides a authentic foundation of support and an opportunity to connect with your inner self, other women and the greater cycles as we journey round the astrological mandala. Together we work with the themes and lessons of each sign for greater wholeness and balance in our daily lives.
In the Red Tent we make a decree
To celebrate our unique beauty, both inner and outer.
To honor ourselves in every choice we make.
To dare to be spontaneous and authentic.
To spend equal time being and reflecting.
To honor the DIVINE in ALL.
To speak both our mind's ideas and our heart's wisdom.
To support ourselves by spending time with those who reflect our inner light .
To spend time communing with Mother Earth
To look for the blessings and lessons in life
And to serve the Greater Good with ease and grace
This is our Inner Goddess Makeover
