Dear Soul

We have a vacancy for 1000 Tara’s during the month of May.

May is Menstrual Month 

May is International Menstrual Month and 28th of May is International Menstrual Hygiene Day. This initiative is organised by Wash United gGmbH. They have chosen May and the 28th because May is month 5 and the average bleeding time is 5 days. 28 is also the average duration of a menstrual cycle. 

Break the taboo around menstruation

The purpose of Menstrual Day and Menstrual Month is to make menstruation a normal fact of life and to break the taboo around the topic because menstrual health is crucial for the health, well-being, and empowerment of women and girls worldwide. 

“Today, millions of women and girls* around the world are stigmatised, excluded and discriminated against simply because they menstruate.

It’s not acceptable that because of a natural bodily function women and girls continue to be prevented from getting an education, earning an income and fully and equally participating in everyday life.”

Shifting the shame around menstruation, menarche and menopause

To shift shame around menstruation (and also menopause and menarche) is also key to the mission of Red Tara Tree. 

The negative cultural view on menstruation is an underlying cause for the huge percentage of women that are suffering from premenstrual syndrome and other menstrual and reproductive imbalances. 

If something that happens every month for half of the population is not experienced as  positive, then this forms a real disempowerment on the physical, psychological, social, economical and spiritual level.

 

Reclaiming the power of menstruation

Red Tara Tree wants to go one step further than shifting the shame around menstruation. 

We also want to bring back the awareness of the spiritual power and the sacredness of menstruation.

Menstruation is sacred for many reasons:

  • it is the foundation of humanity: menstruation and birth are 2 sides of the same coin
  • the menstrual cycle connects us to rhythms in nature: in many cultures it is called the moontime because it is connected to the phases of the moon. The menstrual cycle also has four phases that show the same qualities as the seasons in nature.
  • womxn are actually most powerful during their menses: during the bleeding time, they are most connected to their intuition and to a deep universal knowing
  • the menstrual blood is coded for life: it has many antiviral and antibacterial properties, it is enormously rich in nutrients and proteins, and it contains stem cells that can be used therapeutically. Menstrual blood is not a shameful fluid that we have to get rid of!

1000 Tara’s

That is why during the month of May, Red Tara Tree invites you to join in a global web of ceremonies dedicated to the power and the sacredness of our menstruation and menopause. 

We want to gather 1000 Tara’s because of the Tibetan prophecy that says: 

“When 1000 Tara’s unite, the tone of our sacred earth shall shift from fear to compassion”

1000 is a symbolical number, a critical mass!

 

Giving our moonblood back to nature

We work also with the Hopi prophecy: 

“When women start again to give their moonblood back to nature, men will come home from war and there will be peace.”

This prophecy refers to a time when giving the moonblood to nature was a natural thing to do. Our foremothers did it. It was an act of reciprocity with nature. A way of giving back to earth, an act of gratitude. 

 

Peace

Giving the menstrual blood to nature is the only offering that requires no sacrifice.

We are tired of bloodshed and war.

We long for peace.

Do you also long for peace?

Let’s anchor the Tibetan and the Hopi prophecy.
