This Week at Brigid’s Grove: Red Tent Chants, Tiny Goddesses, and Verandahing

We had a fun, energetic, beautiful Red Tent Circle last night at WomanSpace in Rolla I feel so lucky to have these lovely women in my life and for the opportunity to bring them together in sacred circle! For a peek into our Circle, check out our raucous rendition of the ecstatic chant, I am ALIVE. It was so much fun!

Speaking of Red Tents, I had a lovely conversation this week with a virtual Red Tent with Journey Of Young Women talking about Womanrunes and how to use them with girls’ and women’s circles. I’m working on a companion video to explore this subject more, since I have lots of ideas and lots of projects to show.

We recently finished a new tiny birth goddess design! She’s a mini-blessing kit exclusive. I love tiny things, so I’m extra happy with her. Perfect pocket-sized empowering inspiration!


The motherwort I planted from seeds this spring (to make my own tea and tincture) actually grew!

I got the term “verandahing” from Leonie Dawson and I highly recommend this practice of making time daily to sit outside on your veranda (deck, porch, front stoop, stair, whatever you’ve got, just try it!).

Verandahing. I highly recommend it.
