Many of our Herstorical files were lost in transition of leadership. Listed below is the information on Tents we have been able to recover.
- August 2014: Private viewing of Things We Don’t Talk About: Women’s Stories From The Red Tent, a film directed by Dr Isadora Leidenfrost is a 72-minute world-renowned award-winning documentary film that documents the stories of women reclaiming their truth and their voice as changers in the world. We are in a new era of history - the healing of ourselves and our planet will come from the women. This movie chronicles the voices of The Red Tent Movement, one that is sweeping the world and signals the clarion call to all who envision a world built around cooperation rather than competition. A world we want to leave for our children, their children and stretching far into the future. Things We Don't Talk About: Women's Stories From the Red Tent shows Red Tent's around the nation gifting women with an opportunity to remember, to listen, to know, and to discover what needs to be brought to our communities to help reawaken their voices.
- October 2014: Public Director's Film Screening of Things We Don’t Talk About: Women’s Stories From The Red Tent. The response was incredible! Each month our numbers grew as the Colorado Springs community learned about our Red Tent. Women were inspired to share their experiences and extend the invitation with friends to join them the following month.
- November 2014: Poetry Slam by Allie H.: Allie is 17 years old and has offered to share her poetry that comes from the heart of her own experience covering topics from depression and self injury to bulimia. I SO look forward to hearing what piece(s) she's selected for us all to bear Witness to.
- January 2015: Tarot Reading for 2015, Gifted by Jennifer Kelly: Jennifer is a natural clairaudiant and clairvoyant and was so pleased when the art of Tarot found her at the age of 12. She has been reading tarot ever since for friends and family as well as clients. She established her business, Divine Insight, 10 years ago and relishes in assisting clients onto the next step in their paths. She believes that tarot is a wonderful tool to use when looking for guidance and clarity, and uses her natural gifts to aid in the process. She is available for private readings as well as Tarot parties and may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- February 2015: Nourishment of Soup for the Soul, Aubrey Fennewald: presenting the Nourishment of Soup for the Soul. Aubrey has requested each participant bring their favorite soup and/or recipe to share. Aubrey Fennewald is a native of Colorado Springs, but has lived and worked in many places around the state, the country and internationally. She came back to live in the 'Springs because she could not shake the feeling that there is work for her to do here. It took her a few years of various jobs here and there as an educator and administrator in public, private, and charter schools around the city to figure out that her purpose IS actually in education (she tried to escape it, which explains why she never got "certified" to be a public school Teacher). Aubrey works in the field of education, but in a way that is finally in tune with, and honors her rebellious nature and exploratory, creative Spirit. She is Co-Founder and Executive Director of Proprius Learning Cooperative, a community for Self-Directed Learners (i.e. untraditional students who trust their gut to know what's best for themselves and who learn from their life experiences).
In her practice as a certified Reiki healer, Aubrey has recently turned her focus inward to explore effective methods for centering and grounding. In doing so, she finds herself contemplating the concept of living more "authentically", and asks 'What does that mean? What does that look like? What does it mean to be more "authentic?'. With her practice and these ideas in mind, for our February gathering, Aubrey would like to first lead us through an easy, no-commitments-necessary, five-minute meditation. After a brief dialogue on our meditation, Aubrey next would like to share a short story of a recent, revolutionary and confirming experience she lived in being "more authentic" (Aubrey is a two-time story teller for our local radio show, The Story Project). Finally, Aubrey will then lead us toward the end of the hour through Latihan, a fun and silly exercise to help us find our voice and work those lovely vocal chords. We will wrap up our session with a talking-stick circle. For our informal, friendly hangtime (and more soup-eating!), Aubrey would like to offer up her Reiki to anyone who might be open to receiving the healing energy.
