This Wao Lehua Red Tent womenʻs gathering takes place during the week of Earth Day. “Honua” is the Hawaiian word for the Earth. “Honua” also refers to pregnancy, in that a mother creates a world within her own body. We find healing as we cultivate the ability to listen to the stories of our bodies. Listening to the stories of places on the Earth that are dear to our hearts can also bring about deep insight and healing.

These ongoing Wao Lehua Red Tent womenʻs gatherings seek to provide a safe space for uplifting dialogue on any number of topics pertinent to the female experience. Lehua flowers are much beloved by the people of Hawaiʻi. The unique tufted blossoms figure prominently in Hawaiian chants and legends and is a poetic name for menses. Wao-Lehua means domain of the lehua blossoms. It is a dedicated space for women created near each new moon.

Hawai’i has 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 together. We are inspired by the waxing and waning of the moon, understanding that our bodies follow a similar cycle. With that core belief, we welcome women and girls of all ages, female identifying individuals, and women who have experienced menopause or other menstrual variations. We look to the lunar cycles that connect us, allowing us a shared dance with a greater rhythm.
