Why have a red tent day? To create a sense of fun around menstruation, to encourage women to take charge of their menstrual and reproductive health, to create greater visibility of menstruation, to enhance honesty about menstruation in our relationships…

Join us as we connect with women world wide who are putting up red tents and moon lodges to honour our womanhood and our cycles and access support in healthy choices around contraception, bleeding and birth.

Bring books, altar items, candles, herb teas, food to share, wear red! There will be a red tent/moon lodge space to sit, be, talk, ask questions, share stories….the day will end with a simple ceremony.

Some therapies will be happening in the barn (for a small donation) and we will be joined in the Red Tent by some Women’s Health Advocates; Nicho Wooding trainee midwife, Anita Bennet– intelligent contraception and infertility, Dominique Sakoilsky– menstruation and birth, Angela Bosanquet local herbalist

 

Celebrating as part of ‘Menstrual Monday’…an initiative started a few years ago in the US. Hosted by Rachael Hertogs, creator of Moon Times washable pads and facilitator of Wise Women’s Workshops.
