Since the publication of the best-selling book, “The Red Tent” by Anita Diamont, many women’s groups have been creating ‘red tent’ rooms for safe spaces to speak the truth and to begin the healing of many painful experiences, as well as, to celebrate all that women are and hold dear. Please join her for a brief video on creating red tent spaces, a discussion and collaging on some of the subjects like ‘#MeToo’ and ‘Time’s Up’ that are now at the forefront of our culture as it changes. She will wrap this up with dancing/drumming/singing with the joy of new beginnings. Carol will also explore the use of the ‘I Ching,’ runes, animal cards, etc. and how they can be used to guide us, counsel us and help to tap into our own ‘inner wisdom’ that keeps us on track and/or helps with ‘self-change.’ There is a $20 fee for this workshop.
