Red Tent Events

The Red Tent

Monday, January 29, 2018: 5:30 pm–8:30 pm

The “Red Tent” is many things to many people. It is a womb-like red fabric space, it is a place where women gather, it is an icon, and it is a state of mind—all concepts inspired by Diamant’s book (The Red Tent). Some women create red fabric spaces specifically to honor their menstruation. Others create spaces where they can take care of themselves, promote women’s conversations, and/or hold workshops and other events for women.

– From Isadora Leidenfrost, Filmmaker
Things We Don’t Talk About: Women’s Stories from the Red Tent

Pure Wellness welcomes The Red Tent into it’s space and you are welcome too! Join in for an evening of self-care. This is a safe, woman-only space and supportive community event where we give ourselves permission to rest and recharge. We take care of each other and ourselves. Join in for deep conversations, learning more about The Red Tent, a guided meditation, herbal teas, aromatic oils, music, rest and more. Bring “You Time”: your creative projects to work on or a blanket and pillow to rest.

For more information on Red Tents around the world, check out Things We Don’t Talk About: Women’s Stories From The Red Tent. You will receive an email with more information once you register.
