Fri, 1/22 ~ Women’s Web Tent: Forgiveness ~ 7pm

Women's Web Tent - Forgiveness

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 safe, woman-centered, restorative, inclusive community. Here in Hudson, MA, we have created and facilitated such a space for nearly a decade! 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 contemporary events and the hearts of our Red Tent sisters.  This week’s theme is “Forgiveness.”

Forgiveness is the decision to release feelings of resentment toward others who have harmed you in the past. They may not actually deserve your forgiveness; but perhaps YOU might. Forgiveness doesn’t gloss over the seriousness of an offense; it doesn’t ask you to forget what occurred; and it most certainly doesn’t excuse it. What forgiveness does, for those who are ready to create this as an intention, is bring peace to our hearts and minds, and liberates us from toxic anger, empowering us to acknowledge our pain while setting the equal intention of not allowing that pain to define us. It is then that we can begin to heal and continue with our lives. And forgiving yourself is just as important as forgiving others.

Maya Angelou on Forgiveness:
“Forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn’t know before you learned it.”

Marianne Williamson on forgiveness:
“The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.”

Anonymous contribution:
“I never knew how strong I was until I had to forgive someone who wasn’t sorry and accept an apology I never received.”

Let’s journey into reflections on Forgiveness, one of the most difficult — and most effective — tools in our Resilience Toolbox. We gather together inside the Red Tent that we may have a safe space to express what’s in our hearts and on our minds, and perhaps inspire others with our experiences and wisdom. 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.

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!!!

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!

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! Peace, love, health and safety, all!
