Red Tent Tunbridge Wells
We start by sharing some tea and meet the other women whilst everybody arrives. Then we gather in a circle to begin the Red Tent. We open the circle by lighting some candles and begin with a check in so all women who want to speak have a chance to do so by introducing themselves and how they are feeling. Then we go round the circle to ask each women what she needs from the day’s Red Tent and to introduce anything she might have brought as an offering, for example a song, poem, a story, a craft activity. The day will unfold according to the women in the circle as the event is not prescribed. We end the circle by doing a final check out, and then we blow the candles out to mark the ending of the tent. Those who can stay gather to share the day’s pot-luck meal.
