Inside the Red Tent Workshop
Begins April 16th for 3 consecutive weeks
8:00 AM PST and 6:00 PM PST
For possibly thousands of years, women have been called into the Red Tent, the "womb of sisterhood."
In the ancient Red Tent, as eloquently described in the prize-winning novel by Anita Diamant, we were able to be nurtured, to grow, to feel honored and be safe. In our modern-day Red Tent we are similarly free to honor our biological gifts and transformations, to celebrate our sacred nature, to comfort and hold one another. We use both ancient and newly-created rituals to evoke an environment of trust and sisterhood.
Science and spirituality have always been sisters, but it has taken us many centuries to fully understand that connecting with our extended community is requisite for the survival of our species. We don't need science to remind us that women are naturally and innately connected to the earth and nature. Female hormones--when released-- have the capacity to increase our immune system, to lower our blood pressure, and to regulate our annotated nervous system. It is precisely when we are in our most creative state that we become most available for healing and regenerating ourselves--and others.
In this workshop, you will learn the tools to create your own Red Tent, an original and personal expression of you and your sisters in your own community. Similar in structure to Red Tents created by other women around the world, it will nevertheless be uniquely yours.
This masterclass is given by 4 "Red Tent Masters", each bringing their diverse expertise and qualifications as Red Tent conveners and circle conveners. We will provide you with everything you need to know about creating your own Red Tent including
What happens in a Red Tent?
