WOMEN’S WEB TENT ~ “JOY AND INSPIRATION”
The Red Tent movement, inspired by Anita Diamant’s fictional story, The Red Tent, supports women in reclaiming the gifts of community as we gather together to co-create intimate, woman-centered, restorative, secular community. Here in Hudson, MA, we have created and facilitated such a space for over 9 years!
In our new online Red Tent series, we seek to explore themes we may be actively connecting with during this global coronavirus crisis. Our topics are inspired by requests from our Tent sisters. This week, we explore the theme of Joy and Inspiration.
Our lives are beginning to open up; but slowly, and with caution. And with this steady hyper-vigilance, we remain largely disconnected from our touchstones of joy and inspiration where we usually find them, whether that’s in an activity, a place, or a gathering of any size. This in turn makes it a real challenge to truly anchor, feel connected, remain hopeful. Gathering in Tent, we share our stories and our wisdom; let’s also take some time to share with one another our accounts of experiences and practices that give us joy. **EACH TENT SISTER IS INVITED TO BRING INTO OUR NEXT TENT — as she wishes — A READING, SONG, PIECE OF ARTWORK, ETC. TO SHARE in which she finds joy, inspiration, peace, grounding, healing, support.
To make this as restorative a space as possible, feel free to join us surrounded by any items that bring you comfort: food, beverages, slippers, pets, lavender sachets, warm compresses, you get the idea. (-;
I’d also like you to please bring a small item that represents, to you, the power of women; this will be your Talking Pomegranate (our Red Tent sub-in for a Talking Stick). It could be a goddess statue, a crystal, a lovely apple, anything that speaks to you of the fabulosity that is Woman.
This Tent is created for adult women and mature female teens (reminder: Trans sisters, this is YOUR Tent, too!)
Please note we are limited to 100 participants; we can admit guests on a first-come–first-serve basis. Feel free to share this invite around!!!
We hold confidentiality to be sacred; that being said, this is the Internet, so please keep in mind the limits of true confidentiality and anonymity when you are attending/speaking. I will NOT be recording this event; I request the same of our Tent sisters in attendance.
No admission will be charged for this Tent.
If you are inspired, donations to the Spiritual Growth and Community Center — the home of this Red Tent — through the Unitarian Church of Marlborough and Hudson are most welcome and will be gratefully received. (Many thanks!)
Can’t wait to see you Thursday. Peace, love, health and safety, all!
Nancy Rogers is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
