We practice mindfulness when we create a lei. It is understood that we weave our thoughts and emotions together with the flowers. The lei is powerful in Hawaiian symbology. Each flower of the lei is like a member of the ‘ohana (family), all bound together with the string of love. An open-ended lei falls around the neck like a small child’s legs draped over the shoulders of the grandparent they are perched upon. Mindful creation… a suggestive topic. Come, weave stories and flowers with our Kumu Hula, Malia Helela.
Welcome, women of all ages, to the Red Tent. Around the world, women and girls have been gathering in circles similar to the Red Tent for thousands of years.
At Still & Moving Center, this gathering takes place once a month close to the new moon. At this Red Tent, we will explore how coming together in sisterhood empowers, strengthens and rejuvenates us to stand in our own light and our own truth. A sisterhood can do what no woman can do alone.

We gather to give and receive support, to share stillness, movement, laughter, tenderness and food. In our fast-paced society the Red Tent provides a place for us to slow down and connect, talk story and nourish things specifically female. In the Red Tent, we celebrate our experience in a female body. We give our spirits space to breathe and expand, and we share stories that only other women can understand. It’s a place of safety, rest, rejuvenation and rejoicing.
The Red Tent is a space open to all of us, where we are free to be exactly who and how we are right now.
“Each time women gather in this way to support, celebrate and strengthen each other, the world heals a little bit.” – Matilda Videgârd
