WOMEN’S WEB TENT ~ “BOUNDARIES”
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 Boundaries.
A boundary is an emotional, mental, or physical limit or space you place between yourself and another person with the goal of self-protection, self-care, building identity. During the coronavirus crisis, many of the self-care-and-protection modalities we’ve built can be compromised; or perhaps it’s an opportunity to set surprising new boundaries that we’d never imagined before. Maybe, due to social distancing, we get to take some of the pressure off and render some boundaries temporarily obsolete. How does your need to create and/or rebuild boundaries now contrast with the boundaries you’d previously adopted? What’s your journey around discovering the idea of boundaries and building your skills in creating them? How do they change over time? Can you recall a time when boundaries “got in the way,” whether they were your own or imposed by others? Is there a good time to push boundaries? We set boundaries within ourselves for our internal lives: what do yours look like? What boundaries are you reeeeally patting yourself on the back for creating? Please join us in a time of sharing our stories, experience, wisdom, and ideas around the challenges and victories we may discover in working with personal Boundaries.
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!
Nan Rogers is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
