Does THAT time of the month derail you emotionally and physically?
Wish you could just hide away until you felt “normal” again?
It’s time to honor the need for downtime, to the return of the ritual of the Red Tent and Moon Lodge.
“Traditionally, the Moontime is the sacred time of woman when she is honored as a Mother of the Creative Force. During this time she is allowed to release the old energy her body has carried and prepare for reconnection to the Earth Mother’s fertility that she will carry in the next Moon or month. Our Ancestors understood the importance of allowing each woman to have her Sacred Space during this time of reconnection, because women were the carriers of abundance and fertility…”
~Jamie Sams from Sacred Path Cards: The Discovery of Self Through Native Teachings
In ancient cultures women retreated into a Moon Lodge, Menstrual Hut or Red Tent during their menstruation.
It was a sacred place for women to renew, recharge, reconnect and receive spiritual guidance.
Women were completely released from their household duties and family responsibilities to turn their attention inward and care for themselves.
We no longer have community Moon Lodges that are easily accessible.
However, we can utilize the concept of the Moon Lodge to create a more peaceful period by giving ourselves a time out while we bleed.
- Track your cycle and plan you days off.
- Let loved ones know you are taking a personal timeout.
- Prepare a peaceful place to rest with self care activities , reading , journal, etc
- Prepare in advance delicious snacks.
- Rest without guilt
