Event description

Description

The Red Tent is a safe and sacred space where women gather together to rest, to create, to nourish, and to dream.

In this intimate New Moon circle, we will sow the seeds of our intention that will manifest through our daily thoughts and actions as the moon waxes.

A co-created event. A space to just BE.

It’s not a workshop, simply a warm and safe space to gather and share. There will be minimal facilitation by Kohenet Annie Matan and Roula Said but the idea is to honour each of the women in the circle and the magic that’s created in the spaces between us.
This circle is open to all women-identified people. If you need a safe space to connect with other wise women, this circle is for you, whether you have a menstural cycle or not.

What to bring:

  • As we nourish our souls, let’s also nourish our bodies by sharing a communal meal. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share.
  • You may wish to bring a reading or idea to share, an insight into this month’s moon, a poem, or quote that inspires you.
  • If you want to perform a song, dance, poem, drum solo, monologue…we’re here to witness your magnificence!
  • You are welcome to step up and lead a short (5 minute) group acitivity: a guided meditation, movement, or breathwork exercise

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE RED TENT

A place to honour nature’s cycles and connect with a circle of wise women.

A place to rest and restore, to stop forcing the answers and instead allow them to arise.

A place that honours and values our journey of womanhood.

The Om Laila Studio Red Tent draws on New Moon and Womb Space lineages from Shecosystem, Kohenet, and Roula Said's Treehouse Temple of All of the Above. Our mission is to honour the feminine in our lives, and – whether we menstruate or not – part of that is recognizing that we are creative beings governed by cycles. Within this Red Tent, we honour sacred womb space within us and that created us, we care for ourselves and each other. We mark nature’s cycles with ceremony. We use our wisdom and creativity to heal ourselves and our planet. We are the priestesses of our own temple.

Why the New Moon?

The new moon is a time when many women bleed. It is also the darkest time of the month, when we are likely to feel tired and inwardly focussed. In some traditions, the new moon is a holiday for women - we take time away from work and family responsibilities to come together and rest, reflect, play, and offer each other healing.

The new moon is also a powerful time to set intentions – in this darkness, we are connected to our intuition and open to receiving insight from the depths.
