Thursday, August 27, 7pm ~ Women’s Web Tent, “Connecting with Conflict

Web Tent - Connecting with Conflict

The Red Tent movement is inspired by Anita Diamant’s fictional story, “The Red Tent,” and supports women in reclaiming the gifts of community as we gather together to co-create safe, woman-centered, restorative, inclusive community. Here in Hudson, MA, we have created and facilitated such a space for over 9 years! And we are continuing this work online, during the coronavirus crisis, by creating that same Safe Space in which we enter times of sharing around a theme inspired by our Red Tent sisters.
We feature a different theme at each gathering.
This week we’ll discuss “Connecting with Conflict.”
Conflict is a part of everyday life. It occurs on multiple levels: internal, interpersonal, international. We struggle with the personal narratives we’ve created for ourselves. And it seems the more we’re involved with Life, and the more people we bring into our circles, the more we increase the possibility of encountering conflict. We are also witnessing enormous Life- and Way-Of-Life-Threatening conflict on a global scale. How does encountering conflict affect you emotionally, psychologically, physically, spiritually? What tools have you brought to bear in working with conflict on all levels? What do you struggle with when navigating conflict?
In our online Red Tent — our WEB Tent — we honor our journeys and treat ourselves with compassion around our reactions to our experiences. Let’s gather together for our customary check-in and to share stories, wisdom, and insights on Connecting with Conflict.
You are invited!
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 speaks to you of the fabulosity that is Woman. It could be a goddess statue, a crystal, a lovely apple, anything you’re inspired to bring.
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!!!
No admission will be collected for our WEB Tents. If you are inspired and able (we all recognize this can be a very financially trying time), donations to continue the work of the SGCC — including this Red Tent — would be gratefully received!
Or feel free to mail a check to:
Unitarian Church of Marlborough and Hudson
Make payable to: UCMH
(Please indicate that this is for Web Tent)

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.

Can’t wait to see you Thursday.
Peace, love, health and safety, all!
