Dyeing the Red Tent


Taking time to gather for deep rest, renewal & reclaiming the color red.

A delicious opportunity for a deep dive into self care, natural dyeing, herbalism, and really good food, awaits you April 5-7th. We will gather together for the weekend of the spring New Moon at the Beautiful North Fork 53 Retreat Center in Nehalem.

The goodness of time and space for contemplation, in an intimate and cozy home with a sauna, can help to reset during the liminal space of spring. We will immerse ourselves in nurture culture, taking time to tend to our body, mind, and spirit in the company of other women.

This weekend retreat focuses on building a robust self-care practice. By using art & story to help connect to self and nature, we will have a chance to get really clear on what helps us thrive.

The workshop is centered upon the long slow process of dyeing a red cloth using Queen Madder, an ancient plant dye who offers us many lessons.

While our cloth absorbs the magic of healing herbs and turns deep red from Queen Madder herself, we will hold space for contemplation, creating new moon intentions, talking, movement, journaling, sauna and spending time in the beauty of the Oregon Coast.

For those who are interested pelvic steaming sessions led by practitioner Kestrel Gates will be knit into the schedule..

The Spring 2019 Red Tent retreat takes place in Nehalem, on the Oregon Coast. Organic farm to table meals will be provided. Rooms are shared. Open to women at all stages of life. Sign up with a friend and receive a small gift.
