Wolf Moon Women's Circle and Archetype Ritual

January Red Tent

January 18 @ 6:30-9pm

In Person

"Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing."
- Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés 

Our first women’s circle of 2022 will be under the Full Wolf Moon! You don’t want to miss this one. There will be writing, story medicine, drumming, and, of course, howling.

In addition to exploring the themes of the Wolf Moon, we’ll work with a set of wolf archetype journaling cards, created by Michelle, in our writing ritual and share our reflections in circle with one another.

This women’s circle is intended for ages 16 and older. Registration is limited to 13 women. While no refunds or credits are available, you may transfer or gift your registration to another woman.

Bring a notebook, a cup for tea, and if you'd like to make your space super cozy, bring extra blankets or pillows.


Imbolc Cacao Ceremony & Journey to the Heart Cave

February Red Tent

February 1 @ 6:30-8:45pm

In Person

As the Wheel of the Year turns towards the light of Spring, we pause to honor the light within. Sacred days like Imbolc are precious opportunities for us to tend to our inner landscapes and Cacao is the perfect plant ally for this work.

Cacao is often called the “medicine of love” and helps open pathways for self-connection, creativity, and healing. Unlike some ceremonial plants that may transport us to another “world” or take us on a spiritual trip, Cacao grounds us deeply into the present moment, allowing us to reconnect with ourselves and journey inward. Our ceremony will be a special way to tend to our inner fire, open our hearts, and invite more peace and joy into our lives.

Every cacao ceremony is different. In our ceremony, we will embrace the ancient practice of working with Cacao as a sacred ally who can help us journey to the inner world (the Heart Cave) for wisdom, guidance, and clarity. New members welcome!

Free Flow Chattanooga Program

We believe all people should have easy and affordable access to feminine hygiene and period products. We also believe that the seasons and cycles of women should be normalized and honored. These beliefs create the foundation of FREE FLOW, a program sponsored by The Chattanooga Red Tent that offers period and feminine hygiene products to people in the Chattanooga area who need them.
