What we're about

If you believe women should have a place to go to in order to connect with other women, relax, reflect and celebrate what it means to be a woman, then this group is for you.

My name is Susan Landa and I live in Portland. Years ago when I read The Red Tent, by Anita Diamant, it awakened a call in me. Each month when my moon came around, I’d think, “Darn it! I wish there was a red tent I could go to!” I felt the void not only for myself, but for all women. My mission is to make the red tent concept more mainstream, encouraging women to honor and celebrate their cycles easily. I believe our culture is ready for this paradigm shift- from dishonoring to revering the female moon cycle.

I’m working to start a business of modern day red tents. The first one will be in our hometown and will serve as a model to franchise. When I have amassed enough followers, I will crowd source the start-up capital. Please share my FB page https://www.facebook.com/Moondays , website www.moondays.com, connect with us on Twitter @MyMoondays, and Pintrest https://www.facebook.com/Moondays and help spread the word so this can become a reality. Here are some of the benefits of the business model:

• It will encourage women to take time out for themselves and be with other women, reflect, get feedback, learn, relax and pamper themselves.

• The space would be open and easily accessible every day! Women could come and go or stay for a while.

• It would give women meaningful jobs and a means to own their own businesses through the franchise system.

• It would be a fixture in the business world. This will create dialog about it in the mainstream helping shift the repressive, old, negative paradigm around menstruation.
