Our Red Tent welcomes women of all ages; all walks of life; all spiritual philosophies; all cultures; all sexualities; menstrual, perimenopausal and postmenopausal women; both cis and trans women; and nonbinary people who feel that their experience encompasses aspects of what is usually framed as the feminine experience. All of us together. There are so many ways to be a woman, to identify as a woman, and/or to experience and express the feminine. A space to enfold and nurture us all as language and understanding evolves. A place to relax and just be you. A space in which we heal, we build trust and honour, and we strengthen ourselves as we face internalised misogyny and the external woundings of patriarchy.

So come, join the circle. Get the support you deserve. Feel truly heard. Embody your wisdom.
