Shakti Red Tent – Central London
Each month we gather on a date near the New Moon.
As we welcome all to the atmospheric space, we sit in a circle in the presence of candles and a cup of herbal tea is provided.
After settling in the space and slowing down from the busyness of the outside world, we engage in a meditation/visualization. (guided or silent).
We then check in with each other, passing around a “talking stick” giving every woman a chance to share a thought, an experience, something about her journey, while we listen with openness and non-judgment. Women do not have to share if they do not wish to and are welcome to just sit and soak up the atmosphere.
We enter creative space, some ideas are:
-We do some free movement or dance to celebrate our feminine nature and to express any non-verbal, embodied impulses and energies.
– We paint, we draw, we create an installation inspired from female experiences/objects.
– We read, we write, we share poems.
– We sing or make music.
Towards the end we might offer a nurturing experience to each other- massage, intuitive touch, reiki. Or we might do a ritual for the new moon, using some tarot cards and writing our new moon wishes for new desired beginnings. Whatever feels right on the moment.
Once the meeting is coming to a close we join hands and blow out the candles, and send out our love into the world.
This is a sacred, safe space of connection with no judgement open to all women.
All women are welcome! We celebrate the beauty of all ages, backgrounds, sexual orientation and spiritual or religious beliefs.
(When we use the term woman, we refer to everyone who identifies as a woman and uses the pronoun of ‘she’)
