What is a red tent?

In this week's podcast episode I have on the co-authors of Red Tents. A book that teaches you how to create a red tent, where to find one and how to lead an equitable women's circle.

In this book we weave together the voices and experiences of many, many women to create a shared story about the role monthly women's circles, known as Red Tents, can play in our lives. We document our shared hope, vision and dream of Red Tents as liberatory community spaces for women around the world. As well as inspiration and practical learning, the book includes questions and practices to support you in creating Red Tents spaces and dealing with some of the challenges you may face. Written by the founders of the Red Tent Directory, a global listing site, and including interviews with over 70 women from diverse backgrounds who run Red Tents, this book provides the practical support women need to establish and sustain a Red Tent in their own community. This book will provide you with inspiring, grounded, tried and tested advice for creating a safer and more inclusive collective community space for women to meet, rest, share and support one another..

Key Topics from the book

  • Sharing leadership & growing Red Tent spaces together.
  • Building Red Tent spaces that are liberatory and challenge oppression.
  • Navigating Covid-19 and virtual ways to deeply connect with one another.
  • Nourishing ourselves and one another, slowing down to rest and replenish ourselves.
  • Building more equitable spaces by putting genuine inclusion, including Trans and Non-Binary Rights and Anti-Racist practice at the heart of how they run.
  • Common challenges and how to overcome them. Leading together and making your Tent sustainable.

Topics from the episode

  • What is a red tent?
  • The history of red tents?
  • How to lead and participate in a red tent.
  • What goes on in a red tent
  • The inspiration for the book & for leading red tent circles
