Growing Your Own Women’s Circle or Red Tent

Creating Community With Women

Live Online  Workshop
Saturday, September 17, 1 – 4 pm Eastern Time

Women’s Circles are an important way for women to connect with each other and with themselves. The Red Tent is a multi-generational woman-only space where women can honor the cycles of our lives. It is a place for women to speak the unspeakable, to name our experiences, our fears and joys of womanhood, and to connect with other women. A Red Tent Ritual is a sacred space set aside to sing, to speak our truth and to sink into the cycles. All women are welcome in the Red Tent, whether you are bleeding, past bleeding, or yet to bleed; whether you have a womb or have had a hysterectomy.

If you want to start facilitating Women’s Circles and Red Tents or want to empower yourself in your own practice, this class will guide you into the Women’s Mysteries of the Red Tent. We will talk about the history (herstory) of the Red Tent and the power of women’s space. You will learn basic structure of ritual creation, tips about facilitating ritual, how to set up the physical space, as well as many songs, chants, and meditations.

After taking this class, you will feel equipped to offer Women’s Circles and/or Red Tent Circles for the women in your life and have more structure for your own personal practice. Please join me in the Red Tent!

Program

The workshop has one three-hour session, which will be held over Zoom. The workshop will be recorded and participants have access to the recording for at least a year after the program.

The workshop covers:

  • Eight steps to ritual creation, including sacred songs, setting up physical space, group meditations for Women’s Space
  • Next steps for starting a Women’s Circle
  • Option to participate in a virtual Red Tent

Scholarships

We offer partial scholarships (50% of the bottom of the sliding scale) to black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) with financial needs who otherwise would not be able to afford to attend. We understand that BIPOC experience more financial and institutional barriers to participation, and this is one way we are able to create more access. If you identify as BIPOC with financial needs and would like to receive a scholarship, please contact us.

Sliding Scale Tuition

Because some people have more financial means than others, we have created a sliding scale fee system to accommodate a range of economic realities. The high-end of the scale reflects the value we believe the program holds, and the low-end offers a more accessible entry point.

By choosing a higher price point, you are helping make the program more accessible to others for whom the low-end may be cost-prohibitive. Please consider your needs and resources to determine what might be a stretch, but not a strain.

Cost

$30 – $60
