Red Tent Ontario
There’s no agenda but respect. The sacred space is opened. Often we’ll pull a Womanrunes card to open up a conversation, and then we actively listen to whoever is sharing. We hold space for emotions without the need to fix. We show up just as we come, as our authentic selves, without a mask. We take what we need and give what we have. The experience has been described as ‘giving yourself a gift.’ The gift of presence with yourself.
Our Red Tent fulfills the need for a meaningful, supportive, safe community for women of all ages. Our monthly circle gatherings build a sisterhood. Women are welcomed and encouraged to share their experiences and insights while the group actively listen. When a woman finds her voice, she finds her power. In the Red Tent, she is listened to, no matter how weak or strong she articulates.
In the circle, all women are considered equals within a safe, caring, accessible environment, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation or financial status. Our objective is to empower women to influence our society so that it may eventually hold these same values.
