The greatest indicator of good parenting is how good a parent you are to your own inner child. - Dr. Shefali Tsabary
A conscious conversation for mums to raise our collective vibration…
When I became a mother in 2014, I found support, humor and solace from the other mothers in my community. As such, I was moved to give back to my community by sharing what I have learned and practice throughout my journey. Inspired in concept by Anita Diamond, I started The Red Tent; a down-to-earth spiritual community to encourage conscious conversation and quiet the mind to raise our collective vibration.
The Red Tent is a VIRTUAL book club meets meditation gathering, where we gather to discuss the selected book, and explore practical meditation and its application to daily parenting life. Existing and expecting mothers and all levels of practitioners welcome! We look forward to meeting you.

The impact of The Red Tent is two-fold.
Firstly, to support the fellow mothers in their own journeys who know all too well the challenges of taking (mental, spiritual and physical) care of themselves, amidst their kids, partners and careers. As Magda Gerber said, 'What parents teach is themselves, as models of what is human - by their moods, their reactions, their facial expressions and actions. These are the real things parents need to be aware of, and of how they affect their children. Allow them to know you, and it might become easier for them to learn about themselves.'
And secondly, its a mechanism to raise healthy, happy and resilient kids. We - the parents and teachers of our next generation - have an opportunity and responsibility to raise the consciousness of our children by opening our hearts and minds to what it means to teach and lead. We have as much to learn from them, as they do us and by harnessing this approach we are able to provide our kids with the modeling, tools and support to develop a positive relationship with themselves, authentic connections with others and a sense of purpose or contribution within their broader world.
