What are your dreams? Your Visions? Your fears and hopes? Who are your elders? Who guides you when you are challenged?
Take time out to listen to elders: elders like our trees and the earth, to your inner guidance and the guidance of other women. Let's share with each other what truly matters right now so we can support one another in fully being alive.
Let the trees tell us how to be grounded in times of chaos, upheaval and pain.
You are welcome just as you are.

And simultaneously much is waiting for us in this not knowing place but we need to make time for the empty space. It is also not only empty space but woman space where we can share stories, laughter, songs, food and honor our unique cycles that we experience each month in our bleeding time and in our going through perimenopause and menopause." --from Alisa Starkweather creatix from the Red Tent We are located at 654 Oakland Ave, Oakland, CA 94611
