Red Tent Ritual

I recalled something that Zilpah had told me when I was a child in the red tent, and far too young to understand her meaning. “We are all born of the same mother,” she said. After a lifetime, I knew that to be true.

Red Tent -Maiden, Mother, Crone Series

In addition to the June Great Gathering, we are pleased to raise 3 smaller more intimate Red Tent Circles to reflect upon, celebrate and explore the depth of our journey into the deeper aspects of the feminine: Maiden, Mother, Crone.

 

Mother - Sunday 22 September 2013, 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Crone - Sunday 12 January 2014, 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
The Great Gathering- Sunday 1 June 2014, 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

We are exploring the idea that the transitions between phases are not always linear and that each phase of a woman’s transformation also cycles with its own phases of waxing, fullness and waning. For example, a Maiden who is heading off to University or career may see herself in the Mothering time of expectancy and new birth. A Mother who watches her children leave the nest, may see herself in the Crone years of motherhood. A newly retired Crone may see herself in the Maidenhood of her Crone years.

Please join us however and wherever you feel called to join us. You may attend one, all or none of the smaller Circles and still enjoy the Great Gathering in June. We are looking forward to seeing you. Check the website for more information. While registration is not required, we would appreciate knowing if you will attend so we can make a place for you.

Selah!

"If you want to understand any woman you must first ask about her mother and then listen carefully….The more a daughter knows about the details of her mother's life – without flinching or whining – the stronger the daughter."
