The Red Tent is a safe and sacred space where women gather together to rest, to create, to nourish, and to dream. In this intimate New Moon circle, we will sow the seeds of our intention that will manifest through our daily thoughts and actions as the moon waxes.
It’s not a workshop, simply a warm and safe space to gather and share. There will be minimal facilitation but the idea is to honour each of the women in the circle and the magic that’s created in the spaces between us.

As we nourish our souls, let’s also nourish our bodies by sharing a communal meal. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share.
You may wish to bring a reading or idea to share, an insight into the Virgo moon, a poem, or quote that inspires you.
If you want to perform a song, dance, poem, drum solo, monologue…we’re here to witness your magnificence!
You are welcome to step up and lead a short (5 minute) group acitivity: a guided meditation, movement, or breathwork exercise
Weave your experience and intention into the fabric of our Red Tent (literally). Bring colourful bits of cloth, totems or ornaments to attach to our Red Tent. We have some beads and other supplies so you can create your own ornament onsite.
Shecosystem’s mission is to honour the feminine in our working lives, and – whether we menstruate or not – part of that is recognizing that we are creative beings governed by cycles. Within this Red Tent, we care for ourselves and each other. We mark nature’s cycles with ceremony. We use our wisdom and creativity to heal ourselves and our planet. We are the priestesses of our own temple.
The new moon is a time when many women bleed. It is also the darkest time of the month, when we are likely to feel tired and inwardly focussed. During this vulnerable time, we gather with other women to rest and reflect, offer healing, and help each other tune in to our intuition.
The new moon is also a powerful time to set intentions – in this darkness, we are connected to our intuition and open to receiving insight from the depths.
