Welcome to Moon+ Womb, a reincarnation of the moon lodges, women's circles and goddess temples that have existed since the dawn of wom|man|.
Moon + Womb was birthed out of the idea that women once honored the sacred rite of menstruation and gathered together to support, share and celebrate the journey from menarche, through menstruation, to motherhood, to menopause. Community was built in the shape of a circle: the shape of the first womb, never ending and all encompassing. Tribal leaders were born from a network of wise women who had seen many moons and knew the secrets and mysteries of the Earth. The red tent, moon lodges, and other forms of the women's circle in all cultures supported humanity for thousands of years.
At Moon + Womb, we dreamt of bringing that space back to the women of Earth, starting with our humble studio in Denver. A space women knew was already inside of themselves, but needed an outer reflection, a menstrual sanctuary in the limits of a city that no longer follows the rhythms of the Moon like their bodies do. Moon + Womb is that space.
Our Mission is for all women to know the sacredness of their blood, and the power of actively working together to restore the sisterhood. We provide the space for gathering and access to alternative menstrual and womb care and support in our studio and boutique.
Just like our moon time, we recognize that our lives are cyclical, and there are periods of shedding and reclaiming. We are on the journey in a woman's body, learning the ebb and flow and ready to share what we have learned, for all living beings on Earth to know peace again.
“In the native American tradition if you wanted to destroy a village you simply destroyed the Moon Lodge – the place where the woman gathered every new moon to intuit insight to govern the tribe. So it stands to reason that the fastest way to rebuild our global village is to re-instate the tradition of the Moon Lodge or Red Tent.” ~ Tanishka
Moon + Womb closed its doors in April of 2018. We are still hosting Red Tents and related events around the Denver, CO area. Check our calendar for more details. We are so grateful for your support and love in our endeavor to bring a permanent red tent space for women to Denver. We hope to one day again have another studio for you and will continue to spread the magick in any way we can until that day comes. Thank you so much for an amazing ride. Blessed Be.
