The Red Tent: The Sisterhood of the 21st Century

Aug 30, 2016 09:28PM
Women through the ages have been ostracized and shunned because of their womanhood. Through the prior century and until now, it has been a man’s world but “The times, they are a-changin.”

The Red Tent is a multicultural place of love where women gather to nurture one another and learn to appreciate the different stages of womanhood (menarche, motherhood, perimenopause and menopause). This venue helps women to disconnect from their duties and responsibilities once or twice a month, allowing them to be at home with their bodies, emotions, feelings, thoughts and most importantly, get in touch with who they truly are.

In this supportive setting, women feel safe and are encouraged to share, to sing, to do rituals, tell their tales of menstruation, sexuality, fertility, womb changes/challenges and transition to menopause.  Each woman’s passage is important and vital for society; we all need to the wisdom of the elders, the conservations and preservation of family through motherhood and the revolution of change for the youth.

The Red Tent gives women room to re-establish friendship, coherence, harmony among other women in societies around the world. At these twice-monthly events, organized and led by Isabelle G. Stark, an interfaith metaphysical minister, women are able to synergistically claim their worth and educate society to give women the admiration they deserve.

Cost: $20.00 per gathering. The circle meets twice a month on or close to the new moon and full moon in Silver Spring (location provided upon registration). To schedule a consultation or to register call 202-403-7901, email [email protected] or visit
