Red Tent Facilitator Training
Training is Currently in Session.
This world needs more Red Tent spaces that are held with integrity, compassion, and love. Now more than ever, we need to remember our connection through our shared humanity.
The Red Tent focalizes the experience of menstruation, and all facets of the womb continuum. These experiences are part of what makes us truly human.
Our humanity is worth remembering, worth worshipping.
I have been guiding people in holding Red Tent Circles for the last 5 years, and now I am excited to offer this online training in a group container for the first time. I have expanded and improved the curriculum, brought in amazing guest teachers, and crafted a course that is practical, accessible, and grounded.
This is an intimate and immersive training into Red Tent Circle Facilitation.
This is a container for those ready to embody their innate leadership capabilities and are willing to do the work to show up with integrity, strength, and compassion.
What is the Red Tent?
The Red Tent is a place where we come to be our raw, honest selves. A place where all of us is welcome. A place that aims to be free of judgement and expectation.
The Red Tent is a place to express emotions, a place to celebrate, a place to grieve, a place to be witnessed, and a place to deeply witness others in their truth and vulnerability.
The Red Tent is a place to be slow, a place to rest, a place to nourish.
The Red Tent is a place to process the wildness of the world, a place to transmute and release what no longer serves, a place to dream of a greater future, a place to plant seeds of plenty and trust.
The Red Tent is many things, to many people; that's part of what makes it so special. The Red Tent need not look any particular way, or practice any particular customs necessarily.
The Red Tent is a modern revisioning of an ancient practice often known as the menstrual tent. These spaces existed cross-culturally, with the purpose of housing people whilst they menstruate. This gathering of bleeding people is thought to have been the first ceremony that any humans ever took part in. When we gather in the modern Red Tent, we bow in respect to our ancestors who have come before us, laying the foundation of Sacred Menstruation and the Red Tent.
For me, the Red Tent was and is my salvation, my homecoming, my safe space, and my sanctuary. It was the first place that invited me to travel deep into my body wisdom, cyclical nature, and menstrual cycle in a healthy and empowering way.
I want all people to be able to experience the nourishment and healing that can be experienced through the Red Tent. This is what passionately drives my work.

Laura (in her Red Tent Facilitation) holds a deep presence as a sacred witness and intuitive guide for incredible transformation. Her commitment to radical change of the paradigm is brought into the containers she hosts, and because of this, I left the training with unshakable devotion in service to my dharma as priestess.

Laura Carmody has been for me, an abundant and magical source of menstrual knowledge, womb healing, and circle facilitation. There are few I would trust as much as she to help in my ever unfolding journey into healing the Feminine... Womb work with Laura was (and still is) some of the most healing and mystical work I've done in my life.

Frequently asked questions
Le mycelium, c'est quoi au fait?
Le support sur lequel il se développe est leur source de nourriture. Les myceliums disponibles à la culture chez Ceramyca se nourrissent de matière organique en décomposition pour enfin fructifier sous la forme d'un champignon. C'est l'objet d'une culture de champignon.
Comment planter un POD?
Insérez le POD en terre à une profondeur de 15cm de façon a ce que sa partie haute soit à fleur de la surface du sol.
Recouvrez le POD d'un demi centimètre de terre. C'est prêt !
Mon POD est planté, et après?
Le réseau initial de mycelium est rapidement visible autour du POD. Au bout de deux mois, la totalité de la ressource nutritive du POD est consommée, le réseau de mycelium est finalisé et fructifiera au printemps.
Comment réutiliser un POD?
Videz son contenu et nettoyez-le à l'eau claire,
Trempez-le dans la solution de réemploi fournie par Ceramyca pendant une dizaine de minute,
Remplissez-le à nouveau du mycelium souhaité !
Qu-est-ce qu'un POD?
Un POD est un dispositif de semis de champignon performant qui contient le mycelium et sa nutrition. Il permet d'implanter un mycelium en plantant le dispositif dans un sol humide: en jardinière, en forêt ou sur des bandes de culture !
