New Moon Reboot
Monday, April 24, 2017
Special Guest: Amy Walker
Dancing our Emotions; Celebrating Our Superpowers
“The menstrual cycle, think of it this way, she writes: “Just before and during your period, the tide is out. And everything on the bottom that you don’t want to see will be revealed. Your true needs – for rest, for nourishing food, for pleasure, for nurturance, and more – are signaled by the depth of your emotions. This isn’t a bad thing. Experiencing anger, sadness, fear, or jealousy is a biologically supported opportunity to transform yourself. Use your emotions as an internal guidance system that directs you to your true needs. Learn the lessons feeling have to teach you. The ebb and flow of dreams, creativity and hormones associated with different part of the cycle offer us profound opportunities to deepen our connection with our inner knowing… … thinking differently about our cycles… and living with them in a mindful way.”
Let us gather to detox and reboot our mental and emotional health as we join in dance and song to honor our bodies. Matriarchal cultures understood the power of gathering monthly to connect with the life force within. Whether you are bleeding or in menopause, we will access the wise inner healer for reflection and clearing. We will follow with a celebration of our Feminine ‘Superpowers’, mirroring the magic that each woman holds.
This month, the Red Tent welcomes moon dancer, Amy Walker, who will be co-faciliating. Amy is an actress, singer, and inspirational/spiritual speaker. Trained and adopted into Nakota medicine ways, she cultivated moon dancing in Teotihuanàn, Mexico, and is a Kriya Yogi. Weaving many practices and teachings, she playfully guides others into their deepest, authentic self, in order to more fully express the divinity that we all are.

Reclaiming our Feminine Power
Monday, March 27, 7:30 pm
Special Guests:Stasha Washburn, The Period Coach
Wowza Performing Artist of Sacred Theatre.
Isn’t it time we reclaimed our Feminine power?
“The great mother whom we call Innana gave a gift to woman that is not known among men, and this is the secret of blood,” writes author Anita Diamant in her bestselling book The Red Tent. “The flow at the dark of the moon, the healing blood of the moon’s birth — to men, this is flux and distemper, bother and pain. They imagine we suffer and consider themselves lucky … In the red tent, the truth is known. In the red tent, where days pass like a gentle stream, as the gift of Innana courses through us, cleansing the body of last month’s death, preparing the body to receive the new month’s life, women give thanks — for repose and restoration, for the knowledge that life comes from between our legs, and that life costs blood.”
Do you have a relationship with your cycle, your moon time? Ashamed? Cursed? Tolerating? Empowered? Want to create a shift and discover her secrets, true power, and hidden blessings of our moon cycle? Yes, even menopausal women are cycling.
We will be joined this month by special guest Stasha Washburn. Stasha is known as The Period Coach. Her life goal: End the Taboo around Menstruation. At this Red Tent she will be sharing all about our Powerful Periods. We’ll create our own charts using Stasha’s Signature Charting Mandala: Enter The Red Circle and learn how to develop a beautiful relationship with our feminine cycle.
We will kick off the evening with red ritual play, led by amazing Wowza, the poster child for ageless vitality at 80 years young.
Opening the Door
Monday, February 27, 2017
Special Guest: Karen Hery, EcoSexual Poet
When the winds blow wildly, and the sea gets stormy, whales have an instinctual tracking system that enables them to follow the vibration of each other and not get lost. As they rise out of the ocean, and crash back against the waves, this innate system of breaching keeps them connected. Like the powerful instincts of whales, our Red Tent Temple is an important way women find to swim together, to send out vibrations, and share our stories so no one gets lost. Thank you to Sue Monk Kidd whose writings inspire us to keep our bearings and send out our own unique vibrations.
