In sisterhood* we find the safe haven to ride the powerful waves that our moontime brings.
Red Tara Tent is an online circle of WoMen who come together to connect to the womb and share the wisdom of the blood.
Red Tara Tent provides a sacred space for belonging and genuine sisterhood. Here we find the safe haven to ride the powerful waves of emotions, energy and visions that our menstruation brings.
We do a guided meditation together and we share the insights and gifts that we received. We use our blood as a shamanic tool to go on an inner journey.
Just as our foremothers did, we withdraw from the ordinary world and we do profound transformational work for ourselves, for the planet and for the future generations. We open ourselves to a deep remembering of who we really are and what our destiny and purpose as a FeMale being truly is.

Have you ever heard about a shamanic journey? A shamanic journey is a meditation where you explore the inside and invisible world with the purpose of finding healing and insight. This discovery journey is fueled by the power of imagination, trance and intuition rather than by ordinary logical and rational thinking. We have all experienced that our moontime brings us into an altered state of consciousness. When we bleed, we are in a different state of mind that makes it difficult to function at work or in daily chores. We can’t really focus that much, our spatial awareness and motoric capacities are different, our senses are heightened, our intuition is so much stronger, and we just feel like withdrawing. In our moontime, we naturally enter into a state of trance. Menstruating is like a mini-birth – the pelvic bone and muscle floor and cervix open to release the flow of blood, much like they do when a WoMan delivers. Hormones and molecules are released that biologically open the body. As the blood flows, so will visions and intuitions flow.
Fun fact: The word ‘ritual’ originates from Sanskrit ‘Rtu’ which means menstrual blood.
Our bleeding is the perfect predisposition for meditation and shamanic journey. It has been the first spiritual technology ever. That is why so many myths and stories talk about ‘a descent into the underworld’. Persephone, Snowwhite and Little Red Riding Hood… all embark on a journey deep into the inner lands of the FeMale. They return blessed with the gift of renewal, fertility, self knowledge and prophecy. In old Mayan tradition, the tribe gathered in a circle in the morning and menstruating WoMen would share their dreams. These dreams and visions were believed to hold prophetic insight that was crucial for the whole tribe.
We want to restore this practice for a new era. We want to revive the spiritual technology that lies in working with the moonblood. We invite you to join our Red Tara Tent to go on a retreat into the inner womb space during your menstruation. Just as plant medicines are the vehicle to embark on an inner journey, the altered state of being during our moontime is our natural guide to meditate. We let our blood enhance our prophetic and healing capacities.
We do a visualization together after which we share our feelings, visions and insights. The Red Tara Tent is a place to share the wisdom and the prophecy that resides in honoring our cycle, just like our ancestors did. This sacred work creates deep personal healing, but it also ripples out to heal the collective.
We are currently setting up the Red Tara Tent behind the scenes and hope to bring you the Red Tara Tent soon. Feel free to email us if you want to be announced at the start. You can use the form below.
