The Red Tent ~ healing arts center for women, is the culmination of a collective dream whose time has come... that every woman not only needs, but deserves a safe sanctuary where her physical, emotional and spiritual health, within all cycles of her life are honored. That within every cell of every woman, is the knowing of what is best for her own highest good. The Red Tent symbolizes the creative power, radiance and inner beauty that each woman holds within her... waiting for the perfect time to be released... so she may find her Self, be herself and live her full potential as a radiantly healthy, happy Woman, Mother, Grand Mother, Daughter,Grand Daughter and Sister.
The creative spark for this mecca of womanhood came from the novel, The Red Tent, by Anita Diamante. I had read this book many years ago just as I began to attend births myself as a birth doula. I was struck by the feeling of oneness I had felt for all women as I read about their sisterhood inside the Red Tent. I realized these wise woman had been passing on their great knowledge of the earth and all of her stores... plants, animals, of feminine mysteries, fertility, pregnancy, birth, menopause for eons...The Red Tent was the menstrual hut of sorts for this nomadic culture. Inside the Red Tent, women had gathered by choice to menstruate, birth their babies, live life, end life, heal their bodies, dreams their dreams and sooth their sorrows.
And so the story goes of this now modern Red Tent....In the spring of 2007, I was struck by divine inspiration and this web site and concept was born out my own deep knowingness, that these mysteries and secrets must be passed on...It's time had come...to work their magic in this place...and so the vision of this center for women's well being came into be-ing. Where ancient feminine wisdom would be blended with modern science of today in perfect alchemy. By weaving preventative and restorative therapies with modern science, the Red Tent is a sanctuary for healing the body, heart and soul of all women to honor all cycles of life.
I had no idea how this shelter for women would be manifested. I only knew what my own hands could do... but I needed more women, more healers...the wise women, and so they came, each radiant woman, one by one, made there way here...and keep coming...each in her own time and with her own gifts and wisdom that had been passed on to her. Each one of these wise women has a gift for you, in each treatment and consultation here, each workshop, each class, you will find something you have been looking for...
Sisters, it time to deepen ourselves; take responsibility, to heal our bodies, minds & spirits consciously...We will be fed by the rich stores of nature; nourished by the fullness of our life's journey.

Healing the whole woman.... in The Red Tent
Since ancient times women have gathered by choice inside the warm cozy space of the Red Tent to heal their bodies, revive their spirits, dream mystical dreams and renew their innate feminine power. Women gathered together, relieved of their daily responsibilities and were cared for by women. Sheltered inside the Red Tent during their cycles of birthing, menses and times of transformation, and with the cycles of the moon, they celebrated, healed, transformed together and shared their wwisdom.
A "Tent" is a portable shelter, to be used whenever and where ever you may need it. "Red" is a color; n. any of a group of colors that may vary in lightness and saturation and whose hue resembles that of blood; one of the additive or light primaries; one of the psychological primary hues.
