Why this invitation?

Why May? 

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. 

Why Menstrual Hygiene Day?

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.”

Why shift the shame around menstruation?

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 for the FeMale and the FeMinine on the physical, psychological, social, economical and spiritual level.


Why sacred ceremony?

Red Tara Tree invites you to join in a global web of ceremonies


We need to go one step further than shifting the shame around menstruation. 

It is time to bring back the awareness of the spiritual power and the sacredness of menstruation.

Why is menstruation sacred?

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, menstruation 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!

Why 1000 Tara’s?

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 needed to create a shift!

Why give our moonblood to nature?

Red Tara Tree believes in and wants to anchor 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.”

Giving the moonblood to nature was the first ritual ever. Our foremothers did it. It is a very natural thing to do. An act of reciprocity with nature. A way of giving back to earth and expressing gratitude. You become nature and nature becomes part of you.


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

We are tired of bloodshed and war.

We long for peace. Do you also long for peace?

Join us and spread the word among like minded people…

Let’s anchor the Tibetan and the Hopi prophecy together!
