About our Red Tent Events at Red Rose Studio
What is a Red Tent?
A Red Tent in our modern world is a place where women gather to rest, renew, and often share deep and powerful stories about their lives. Red Tent is a safe space, women often open up with one another and tell stories that they would not normally share. It is a place where women can truly be themselves and talk about anything, if they want to. For many women the Red Tent is a sacred space, but it does not proclaim any one spiritual or religious practice. The growing consciousness of the Red Tent movement is changing the way that women and girls interact and support each other. It provides a place that honours and celebrates women, by enabling open conversations about the things that women don’t want to talk about in other venues. Moreover, because the Red Tent is a space that nurtures free-flowing and deep conversations between women it fosters a greater sense of community. Being together regularly gives women an opportunity to celebrate being women, to have our voices heard, to discuss issues about body image, self-respect and empowerment, or to simply relax and take care of oneself. Women promote positive ideals for the young women who gather with them. It is in this safe environment that conversations take place that enable us to speak openly of our traumas and losses that need healing. All in all, it is a place where women can truly be themselves and talk about anything if they want to. Remember that it is also a place where women can just be. So if a woman has no story to share openly that is fine too.
