Red Tent Temple ~ June 1, Bloomfield, CT

It’s time again!

To gather in honor of the feminine divine in our magical Red Tent Temple.

Please join us.

Red Tent Temple ~ June 1, 2008 ~ Bloomfield, CT

Please read this invitation thoroughly so you know exactly what is happening and how you might participate. Each month there are variations.
The Red Tent Temple of the Spiral Traditions Chapter.

~Recreating the Women's Moonlodge for today's culture~

Please forward this to anyone you wish to be invited. Last month's gathering was absolutely wonderful!

~ It is scheduled for Sunday June 1, 2008, from 11 am to 5+ pm.
~ Set up will be from 9-11am.
~ A brief opening/orientation circle will be held at 12 noon.
~ 11-12 am and 12:30-3pm will be free-form, organic time, where you can do what you wish in the space.
~ Formal Circle will be held from 3-5pm
~ 5-7 pm will be community time (farewells, hugs, networking, resting after circle..) and break down of the space.

Located on the beautiful land of Auer Farm we will be held in the arms of Mother Earth while we retreat safely and honor the feminine spirit. The Red Tent will happen every month, on the Sunday closest to the New (dark) Moon.

Inside the Red Tent .........you will find a space to heal and be heard. To be your whole self. To go within and tap into your divine creative source. There will be space to rest, journal, cry, connect with sisters, breathe, meditate, and reconnect with what ties us all together: being woman. Womb or not, bleeding or not, all women from all walks of life are welcome.

Suggested Donations of $10.00 to $20.00 are requested but not mandatory. We do have to pay for the space.

There will be a beautiful storytellers chair, a greivance altar, a community altar, herbal teas and homemade soup. It is sacred space to go within and honor your divine feminine being. A place to remember.

Young women of Menarche age are welcome for all of the day except the formal circle at 3:00 which is adults only.
Nurslings are welcome until walking age.

This vision is held in the spirit of community and collaboration. Everyone who sets this up is working on a volunteer basis, which makes your attendance and contributions integral. Please take a look at the share list below and the garden volunteer dates to see where you are called to collaborate to keeping this vision alive and well. On the side bar to the right, there is a donation button you can use to make financial contributions.
It is vital to our culture and to our next generations that we reclaim our innate Spiral Traditions. We are a culture starved for authenticity - but we don't have to be. The Red Tent Temple is a transformational movement.

RSVP's are important. We need to know how much soup to make or request, who can Priestess, and who can bring what. When you refer to the share list below - please email us on what it is you are called to bring or do, so we can keep this day organized and wonderful. When you rsvp, you will receive a detailed Temple email in return.

RTT Bouncing Emails

To the Women of the Red Tent:

There are several emails that are not accepting the RSVP email, so if you are expecting one and haven't gotten it - that's probably why. If you plan on attending and/or would like to remain on the notification list, please do "OK" the Spiral Traditions (at gmail dot com) address on your contacts, so that your spam monster doesn't eat it. Rsvp's are indeed important - for both parties.

If you do not wish to receive any more, and are - just let me know and I will take you off the list.


Can't wait to see every one's beautiful faces on Sunday!

Love and Light

Temple Priestess Needed

To the Women coming (or thinking of coming) to the Red Tent Temple this Sunday:

Are any of you called to lead the formal circle?

Please come forward and share your gifts. The Circles at the Temple rotate leadership; this renders the most out of our collaboration and out of our diversity. Each woman has something unique and special, which we can all learn from. If you are willing to use your gifts for a little while on Sunday, please let us know, and I will email you the small list of guidelines that we use.

Blessed Be!
