The Red Tent Movement
The Red Tent movement aims to reclaim women's sacred time by gathering in circle to share our stories, our challenges and our joys in a safe and nurturing space where we can share what is in our hearts and be heard and appreciated wherever we are in our lives.
The Red Tent or Moon Lodge is simply a gathering of women that occurs at the new moon, when girls and women are most in need of support, rest and reflection. A timeless tradition observed by ancient cultures it serves as a regular forum for empowering one’s feminine sense of self-hood.
A Red Tent is a space for women to care for each other and be seen and heard for all that we are, wherever we are in our life's journey.
The Mother from ancient women who are coming to us now to reignite the flame of DIVINE feminine LOVE and UNITY.
There are thousands of women across the globe who are bringing forth their gifts as Red Tent leaders in their communities. Women who are standing in their power are essential to shifting present paradigms; these pioneers are a balm to an ailing world. But after years of oppression, how do women rise up out of trauma to remember the beauty that lives at one’s core? How do we strip away that which prevents us from rising as wise female leaders? This reclamation work is what many are a part of because when we find our voices, our inspired action, and our needed vision then we stand a better chance at creating a world we can thrive in. And it is with this spirit that the Red Tent movement has flourished as a global phenomenon.
How might your life have been different if there had been a place for you? A place for you to go…a place of women, to help you learn the ways of women… a place where you were nurtured from an ancient flow sustaining you and steadying you as you sought to become yourself.
Most women have heard of the Red Tent because they read the book. The Red Tent, a novel by Anita Diamant, which was published in 1997, was a story of women who come together in a menstrual hut, known as the Red Tent. The book is a fictional feminist retelling of the biblical tale of the story of Dinah. The book is presented through Dinah’s eyes and those of the women around her. The story showed us how the women raised young daughters who were taught the secrets held for women by women through initiation, stories, and relationships. For many, the story resonated deeply and caused us to question if there was a place like this in our society.
