#73 Red Tents: Weaving a Shared Future in Sisterhood w/ Mary Ann Clements & Aisha Hannibal
How to Co-Create Communities of Radical Collective Care
Mary Ann & Aisha are the co-authors of freshly published ‘Red Tents: Unravelling Our Past and Weaving a Shared Future’. This work speaks to women and gender non-conforming people who seek community and connection in a safe and sustainable way. In this episode, I talk to the authors about their journey with Red Tents, the experience of writing a book about it and so much more.
We chat about what Red Tents actually entail, the healing of the sisterhood wound and the importance of radical inclusivity in these safe spaces. Aisha and Mary Ann share their thoughts on equality within Red Tents and the importance of the community aspect. Their co-authorship is a beautiful symbolic token of the equal and shared energy that go into spaces such as Red Tents.
If you’re seeking inspiration to start or join your own Red Tent or women’s gathering, this book will lovingly guide and inspire you. With engaging questions and the experience of over 70 women included in it, you will gain a deep understanding of what it means to gather and connect, where our craving for it comes from, and how following the calling to create (or join) one of your own is an act of sacred activism.
