Come and join us in the safe, sacred, nurturing and creative space of the Red Tent Circle. Imagine a beautiful place where you will be welcomed just as you are, into the sisterhood of women. The In Her Name Women's Spirituality Group invite you to join the first Red Tent Temple. The In Her Name monthly Goddess group will alternate monthly with the Red Tent.
These circles are open to women of all ages and stages of life. Feel free to bring your mother, daughter (13 years +), sister, aunt, friend or neighbor. Or take the brave step to come on your own and form new friendships. The Red Tent Circle offers you precious time and space to connect with yourself and the community of sisterhood, nurture your creative flame, practice self-care, share your stories, eat delicious food and soak up some sacred feminine wisdom.
Anyone is welcome at any time in the Red Tent Temple to sit in the chair and tell a story of their womanhood journey. Sometimes the stories are sad and sometimes they make us all laugh. You can read a poem or share something in that moment.
During the year, we honor the Seasons and Cycles of Nature. We dance with the moon, sing with the stars, play with the elements, create beautiful craft, share traditional and contemporary stories, listen deeply to each other, laugh, and cry.
4-5pm Setting up the Red Tent
5-6 pm Chants, songs, drums, stories
6pm – 7pm Relaxation, reconnection & sharing food
7pm – 8:00pm Crafts and Coloring
9:00pm Taking down the Red Tent
We hope you will want to be a part of Evensong for Young Professionals.
In this series of eight gatherings, participants will explore individual life journeys through sharing thoughts, experiences, doubts, and current beliefs.
At each session, twice a month, we will follow an order of service, with the central event being a sharing time. We will be listening attentively and without interruption to one another.
Evensong is a good way to explore personal beliefs and possibilities and a great way to get to know a group of people.
There is no fee for Evensong. To register, please email or post your intention to attend on the Young Professionals Facebook page.
Our next gathering of Evensong is on Wednesday May 4th at 7pm in the Sanctuary We will continue to get to know one another as we take turns speaking and listening. If you have any questions, please text or give Rev. Gaye a call at 706 231 5560 or email her at
