Developing Your Sacred Business 8-5-2017

Fee-based Girls' Circles keep you, your container and the process well-fed.

Cultivating healthy beliefs about earning money and maintaining healthy boundaries are essential for mentoring girls and for any sacred exchange of energy. In this Red Tent, we explore money and boundaries in ways that are deep, personal and also quite practical.

Sharing "Beauty with a Capital B" with Girls 7-2-2017

We can help free girls from toxic messages about appearance-based beauty by sharing with them ‘Beauty with a Capital B’, a vibrant connection to Beauty Everywhere, within and without.

I talk about why the standard approaches to Positive Body Image and Positive Self-Esteem are flawed, then how to help girls find their Beauty and to know that they walk in Beauty.  Practical and inspiring - worth a watch.

Ceremonial Singing 1-17-2017  

with special guest Alexandra Fe

Alexandra discusses the use of ceremonial singing particularly within the lifecycle of women and teaches us three songs.

Singing unites community through so many aspects of life, including ceremony, celebration, rites of passage, prayer etc.

Alexandra has been a sacred song carrier for four years (mostly from Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Native American (Turtle Island)). Her recent focus has been songs from the Lakota tribe (of the northern Midwest). She's traveled to California, Oregon, New Mexico, South Dakota and Hawaii to sing for sweat lodge, Sundance, Cacao, Water Blessing, and other traditional ceremonies. Currently in Los Angeles, she and her singing partner/teacher offer workshops on Lakota songs and teachings. AND she's a JOYW student!

Talking Circles for Girls 4-17-2015

with special guest Be Essert

The amazingness of extended Talking Circles with girls. How you can offer them.

Be writes, "In my work with women and girls, I find that the talking circle is of critical importance. As an energy worker I find that women are almost always weak or completely blocked in their throat chakra. In this Virtual Red Tent, I will talk about some of the amazing breakthroughs I've seen in talking circles and how this is key in working with girls and women."
