This song was inspired by the Red Tent Temple Movement created by ALisa Starkweather, and her vision of a Red Tent in every town, city and village. The Red Tent Temple is a place for all women. A place where women of all ages can come and be seen and supported by other women traveling this sacred journey of womanhood. The song touches on some of what happens in a Red Tent but most of all it shares the "feeling" that is experienced by being in a Red Tent. Women come back again and again because there is something that takes place there, something that feeds and nourishes the deepest part of who we are as women. If you have not experienced a Red Tent Temple, seek one out near you or even start one yourself for your community. You can find out more info about the RTTM at RedTentMovie.com
Please spread the word... and the music!
