Red Tent Temple: meditation and satsang

We gather in our monthly women's circle. Our Red Tent this month will focus on meditation and satsang. Let us join one another in a moment of silence and introspection. Let us share our deep thoughts and feelings that arise from the stillness. We will be together in a meditative space, followed with pointed discussion and sharing about our bodies and its cycles, our lives and loves. Feel free to bring readings that speak to you about your moon cycle or your womanhood. We will have a time to share. April C. Taylor, priestess of Terra's Temple, will be leading this meditation circle and satsang. Please arrive by 7pm, ready to enter meditation space. Meditation til 7:45pm Discussion til 8:30pm, followed by potluck snacks. Wear red clothes and scarves to hold the frequency of our moon times. All women welcome, mooning or not. And please bring easy potluck snacks. Donation at the door: $5-10 Read more »

Red Tent Temple: Feel the LOVE

February's Red Tent Temple will delight and amuse, it will ignite and excite, it will open your soul's doors and allow for self-LOVE to flow. As love fills the air and promises of spring yet to come swirls around us we will gather once again at Terra's Temple to honor our sacred sexuality, fill our cups with self-love and nourish our soul with healing. Join Ashely Apple of the Yoni Temple co-hosted with April C. Taylor of Terra's Temple for an intimate and fun evening exploring the depths of our bodies and beings. From Ashely: "Understanding the female physical sexual anatomy introduces us to the importance of vaginal muscle control and strength. Creating a relationship with our yoni's helps women connect their heart/mind to their sex. Explore how to cultivate more pleasure with muscle control while strengthening the reproductive organs in this intimate circle of women."

What the Temple means to me?

I have been spending many hours within Terra's Temple and with the members of the Priestess Circle for the past year?? I can't remember when Sefora asked me to join her. I do remember the look on her face and the tone in her voice. "We can be Priestesses of a real temple together." She had worked so hard to get it this far and now was asking for help. How could I turn down that kind of an offer?? Slowly, ever so slowly at times, we've been growing. More events, more folks coming through, more plans, more offerings and more FUN. I have come to love the space and the people who dwell often in the space. Recently (in the last two weeks) we've added two new members and I am so pleased to be getting to know them as well. We are all on our own paths certainly but we are also coalescing into an group who has the goal of making Terra's Temple a thriving, lucrative, healing filled, magikal urban sanctuary. I feel good when I go in the doors. I feel quenched and full.  Lately, life has been kicking my a** something harsh but Terra's Temple is an oasis for me. A place I am at home, full of people I treasure. I feel beyond blessed for that offer (I couldn't refuse) and for the good work we are doing to heal ourselves, and the Earth herself. --this musing brought to you by Priestess Circle member: April C.
