Red Tent Chalet Rental
In recent years, the Red Tent movement has swept through the world, inviting women to remember a time when daily tasks were left behind during their moontime (menses). Menstruating women gathered together in the “Red Tent”. During this time women came together to rest, relax, and care for themselves during the energetic sensitive time of menstruation. In many wisdom traditions, the moontime is a time for women to regain their strength, stamina and inner nourishment – provided by taking time out of regular life. This simple act stimulates a greater vitality, health and spiritual well being – as well as heals the Earth herself.
The Red Tent Chalet offers a space to reinstate this precious practice for the health and well being of all. Living simply, close to nature and in a relaxed way. Modern culture, work and stress deplete the health of the women, and when a woman works strenuously during her moontime, overtime it can have ill effects on her vitality and fertility.
The Red Tent Chalet is a sacred space open for rental of either individual women or groups (sleeping up to 6-7) who wish to retreat and take time to live simply either during their moontime or at anytime the need arises.
The Red Tent Chalet is open from May 1 to November 1 of each year. For rental at times outside of these dates will be weather dependent for heating considerations.
The Red Tent Decree:
- All women herein respect one another
- All women care for the space and the surrounding environment as sacred space
