Even though Red Tent traditionally is a space where women can retreat, rest and reflect during their menstruation, it is a space for women of all ages. It used to be the place where women's knowledge was shared between women, stories & traditions passed on. Modern red tents offer a sanctuary to be witnessed and held within the common Unity of women and continue to be places of shared learning.
Our Red Tent sits nestled in a natural valley near the Colo River, northwest of Sydney, on the property HearthGround. Created and built on-site by local community members, the Red Tent is now a multi purpose sacred space.
The space hosts Seasonal Red Tents - one Sunday afternoon per season for women to gather, share and witness. The next seasonal Red Tent is happening on Sunday 8th March 2020 from 1-5pm, with special guest Renee Bahloo from the Weavery, who will be facilitating a weaving activity. The cost for this event is $40 pp, which includes afternoon nibblies and all weaving materials. Please contact us to book in.
Every year HearthGround holds space for the Red Tent Women's Camp - a weekend Red Tent event featuring an extended Red Tent experience, crafting, shared meals and time to experience the magic of HearthGround. The 2020 dates for this are 25-27th September - please contact us if you are interested in attending this event.
