Women’s Web Tent ~ “Belonging”
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.  This week’s theme is “Belonging.”
Belonging is the feeling of being part of something and mattering to others. A sense of belonging is a human need, just like the need for food and shelter. We create it through inclusion, which consists of intentional acts. Feeling that you belong is most important in seeing value in life and in coping with intensely painful emotions; a sense of belonging to a greater community improves your motivation, health, and happiness. The word “Home” is often invoked to describe Where I Belong, whether that’s engaged in a joyful practice or meaningful work, spending time in a place that just speaks to your soul, or keeping company with individuals and communities. And sometimes, we get to be that Home for others. When you enter Red Tent, you are Home. Let’s gather to share our stories, reflections, and experiences around Belonging. You are invited!

Join Zoom Meeting

To make this as restorative a space as possible, feel free to join us surrounded by any items that bring you comfort: beverages, snacks, slippers, pets, etc.
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!) 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! Here’s the link; thank you!!!
Or feel free to mail a check to:
Unitarian Church of Marlborough and Hudson

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 Friday. Peace, love, health and safety, all!
Nancy Rogers is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
