Red Tent Women’s Gathering: Polishing our Diamond Soul with Tracey Villiger
August 3 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
“A diamond cannot be polished without friction, nor our human nature refined without trials.” – Confucius
“The more the diamond is cut, the brighter it sparkles.” – Thomas Guthrie
“Be a diamond. Flourish under pressure.” – Maureen Joyce Connelly
These ongoing Red Tent womenʻs gatherings seek to provide a safe space for warmth and uplifting dialogue on any number of topics pertinent to the female experience. It’s a place for friendship, togetherness.
This month we focus on the symbol of the diamond. We strengthen and refine our ‘diamond soul’ through the tough inner work of forgiveness and gratitude, so that we don’t collapse under emotional pressures. Our ‘diamond soul’ opens to the clear light of love and compassion. This is human work. Women’s work.
Our leader for the event, Tracey Villiger, has extensive experience in leading women’s groups and in Attitudinal Healing, which holds that the essence of our being is love.
The Red Tent tradition extends back to at least biblical times. Hawai’i also enjoys a rich history of women gathering in seclusion while on their cycle. As in many ancient cultures, Hawaiian women used this time to rest and commune with each other on both mundane and sacred levels.
This modern Red Tent welcomes women of all ages and lineages to celebrate the full spectrum of life as a female.

By consciously choosing our thoughts, feelings and attitudes, we can learn to alleviate stress and regain a sense of wellbeing.
