Red Tent Temple Rises! Dec 13, & Jan 17

The Tent OPENS at 3pm and CLOSES at 8:30. “The Red Tent Temple Movement is a way for women to take our inner momentum, that feeling like the time is now and come forward with everything we are as women and give us a place to incubate, dream, slow down, and not have an agenda or plan. And simutaneously 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 This month The Red Tent will open earlier and stay open for most of the day. This will allow anyone who works in the evening a chance to come, or if you just want to stop by right after work the space is available. We are planning a food bathing and reflexology experience. Bring dish tubs, extra towels and any oils or lotion so we can honor each step we take. And smooth stones for the bath a plus. Hand massage too! The Dec circle will also be open spaces for divination, massage and energy healing, self-care, quiet meditation and/or loving connection, expressive arts/music and sharing. Reference material for the blood mysteries and our moon times will be available too. Give yourself the GIFT of an time in women’s space. Bring friends, sisters, mothers, aunts…. Wear red to hold the frequency of our moon blood. Bring easy snacks to share. Please join the movement, raise the Red Tent! Donations appreciated to cover costs: $5-$15 Read more »

Terra’s Temple Presents “Pilgrimage: Why I am not an Indian”

Pilgrimage: Why I am not an Indian A solo performance piece conceived by Elanie Magree Directed by Rebecca Fisher Friday, July 6 7:30 curtain box office opens at 7pm $10 per ticket NOTA, all proceeds go to the Temple. Very Limited Seating RSVP Required, please email Rebecca: rebfish@pacbell.net Sacred Living Room Theatre and Blessing for the Journey Presents Elaine Magree in a solo theatre performance which asks: What part Indian are you? And what’s up with that Ex-Nun and the box of ashes?! Elaine, intrepid lesbian, turkey-baster Mom, and childhood abuse survivor, sets out at 60 to untangle the Story of her Mixed Heritage. If only that were ALL she’d inherited from her dramatically disturbed mother. A tale of irony, outrage and irreverence. Fun for dysfunctionals, genealogists, social activists, anyone who loves their family despite it all, and for the deeply hopeful. This intimate performance at Terra’s Temple in Oakland will send Elaine off to The Winnipeg and Minnesota Fringe Festivals this summer. For more information about Elaine and the show Read more »
