...and passionate about helping people heal anything in the way of a healthy, joyful life.
The Red Tent was novel by Anita Diamant (1997) that gave us a story of women who come together in a menstrual hut, known as the Red Tent.
This concept of a community of women regularly coming together to nurture, support and empower each other appeals to many modern women, and so the Red Tent Movement developed. Now Red Tents are appearing worldwide.
The Red Tent is a sacred space yet does not proclaim any religious affiliation. Ours is a spiritual space where women can come to take care of themselves, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
'It was my first time (at the talking circle) and I thought I would go with an open mind and no expectations. Immediately upon arriving to (Debra's) lovely retreat-like home I felt I was welcomed into an atmosphere of warmth and unconditional love.
I'm so glad I gave myself permission to step out of my comfort zone and try something new...although I soon realized, it didn't feel new at all, it felt like I'd come home. I love that you so graciously provide women a place & a path to lovingly journey home toward our authentic selves. I will be back!'
'Thank you for setting up your talking circles. I really appreciate the effort you put into making these opportunities for us all to learn and grow and feel heard and supported.
I feel the ancient wisdom that comes from sharing information, feelings, and experiences in a safe space with other people.
It is easy in these busy times to feel isolated, and talking circles give us a special chance to be with others without judgement, and to know we are not alone but part of a group of people feeling and experiencing very similar things.'
'To be invited to spend time where space is being held for you as you remember who you truly are, and share your truth with like minded sisters, is akin to the feeling of coming home. We enter the talking circle with a vague sense of direction, for example we may be aware of the topic, book or concept, then we join with the exact group of women who were meant to unite. Together we witness the experience unraveling.
Respectfully we are present for one another, allowing each woman to share, to give and receive, without interruption or rescuing or judgement. We nod our heads with knowing expressions and often laugh. There always seems to be just the right recipe for us all to exchange farewell hugs feeling stronger, calmer and more certain of our purpose.'
