The Red Tent was traditionally connected to women’s moon time, their menstruation. This is one of the reasons why it is kept exclusive and why it was considered mystical and unspeakable in our male oriented society. The moon time is a time in our cycle where we naturally seek more solitude, we may not be as open and expressive as usual, and may not want to have to much contact to other people. In the Red Tent we honor this time of retreat and provide a safe space, away from everyday tasks and the demands of the outside world. It is a place for women to go inside, nurture themselves, and talk about emotions and the things that don’t have a place in our modern world.
