Red Tent Initiation Program Details

Note: this class is now available on a rolling enrollment basis. You will still have access to the sisterhood of other students in our Facebook group, but the course will begin for you whenever you sign up, rather than waiting for a scheduled group of students.

Following the spiral path of maiden, mother, and crone…

Do you hear the call of the Red Tent?

Do you envision gathering with other women in sacred space?

Do you want to feel capable and prepared to step into your power as a leader and facilitator?

Do you want to take a journey into a deeper understanding of yourself?

Do you want to reach out to other women in sisterhood and co-create a powerful circle experience?

This online course is both a powerful, personal experience AND a training in facilitating transformative women’s circles. You will listen to your deep self, access your inner wisdom and prepare to step into circle as guardian and guide for other women who are hungering for depth, connection, restoration, and renewal in today’s busy world.

Do you thrive in a small group atmosphere with lots of support, interaction, feedback, and personal attention?

This intensive program allows for deep connection and dedicated attention.

While the overarching theme of the course is the Red Tent, this course is completely applicable to facilitating women’s spirituality circles, ceremonies rituals, and retreats and will prepare you for womanspirit priestess work in a variety of settings.

Are you captivated by the concept of “restoring women to ceremony”?

Your online experience includes…

  • A ten week immersive journey over the course of the spiral path
    • Knowing Self (Maiden Unit)
    • Might of Creation (Mother Unit)
    • Gathering the Women (Crone Unit)
  • Each unit includes a ceremony, meditations, discussion questions, journaling exercises, projects, and prompts designed to take you deep into the Red Tent process.
  • Live interaction, support, feedback, and conversation via a private Facebook group

And, do you want actual, physical, tangible resources for doing this work, rather than a collection of pdfs?

  • 74 page resource book: Restoring Women to Ceremony, The Red Tent Resource Kit, written exclusively for our Red Tent rtkit1Kit and Initiation Program.

Molly is a wonderful teacher and she provides a lot of resources and support to guide you through. If you’re being called to lead Red Tents or if you are looking for additional support and resources for your Red Tents I highly recommend this course!”

–Eveline, The Storymidwyfe’s Cauldron

“I love feeling part of a wider and international circle of women. Thank you so much Molly Remer for running this course so sacredly, mindfully and lovingly.”

–Elaine, Red Tent Moon Lodge

“This has been a fabulous course. The work has had real meaning for me, I’ve learned so much, I’ve been honored to be able to witness the experiences of some pretty fabulous women…I’ve beautified my environment with goodies we received from Molly…and things I created in our assignments, connected with and appreciate even more the moon energy…and am grateful for the how this course has affected me. Thank you Molly for offering this, and thank you sisters for sharing.

I do also want to thank Molly for being an involved, thorough, responsible leader. I appreciated how you communicated clearly expectations, everything was sent out in a timely manner, no question was left unanswered, and the material was professional and beautiful.


I have sat with this email in my inbox, waiting, waiting to know what to say. How to thank. In a way that is meaningful and reflects how deeply I feel gratitude for the magic and medicine that we have made here.

But, as the days go by, I didn’t want you to think I have not received the mail. So here is my necessarily inadequate response:

Thank you Molly. 

Thank you. Thank you.

“This course has blessed me in so many ways, and will continue to bring blessings into my life, and the lives of women in my community. Thank you for being a wonderful facilitator, and for knowing when to push, and when to listen. 

You, my friend are a skillful leader.”

Jes H.

Having been a follower of Molly’s work for a number of years I was excited to see that she was offering the Red Tent Initiation Program and it did not disappoint. Molly is real. She knows this work intimately, it is her life purpose, and it shows through the depth of the experience she offers and the sheer breadth of materials she draws upon for this Red Tent Initiation Program.

I have been leading women’s circles for a few years now and wondered how much I would have to learn from this, but I was pleasantly surprised. Throughout the program Molly shares not just idealistic notions of what Red Tents are or should be, but the nuts and bolts real honest magic that happens when real women get together in real spaces and share their real, unabridged stories. The program strikes a wonderful balance between practical tools, like songs and ritual recipes, and soul work, through the meditations and personal ceremonies and open sharing in the Facebook Group. By the end I felt totally prepared, spiritually, emotionally and practically, to start our own Red Tent – and excited and inspired too!

If you are thinking of creating a Red Tent in your community then this program will give you all the tools and knowledge that you need to start a wonderful circle which will benefit all the women who attend, and will ripple on strengthening your community as a whole. It is a true gift and I am really grateful and blessed to have been a part of it. Thank you Molly.

  1. I am really interested in taking your course, but am unable to pay the full amount before the registration date. I believe that it is very worth the price, I am just having a bit of financial difficulty right now. Do you have a payment plan? Thank you for your time!

    1. Hi Cherie,
      I sent you a reply to your email address. Let me know if you didn’t receive it!



    2. Hi Cherie,
      I sent you a reply to your email address. I hope you received it. 🙂

      Best wishes,

  2. Hello! I am very interested in participating in this course, however I was hoping that you could expand just a bit on what, if any, the specific the time commitments look like. Will there be times all students will need to be working together? Or can the work be done and posted during the day when it fits our schedule? I am ready and willing to spend as much as is needed, however as a working single mother I will be doing most of the work at odd hours. Thank you so much for offering this experience!

    1. Good questions! It is designed to be completed over six weeks, but you have unlimited access to the materials and can complete it according to your own schedule. There is the opportunity to communicate with the other students, but it isn’t required. It is structured so there are three units that each take two weeks to complete–you’ll get all of the assignments, audio, and experiences at the beginning of the two week unit and then work on it at your own pace during those two weeks. Hope that helps to clarify! I hope you join us. 🙂

  3. Hi Molly!
    I have been contemplating talking to others about beginning a red tent in my area but lack the confidence, skills and resources to get going. I wanted to confirm a spot in this group before it’s sold out, but have to check into a potential scheduling conflict. Wondering what your return policy is on this? Also, I’ve already purchased the Womanrunes from you and I was wondering if it’s possible to deduct that from price and if so what would the price be? Is it also possible to use my THANKYOU discount?

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I’d love to have you join us! If you check out via etsy, you can use the discount code. And, yes, we are happy to deduct the Womanrunes cost from the package ($22) in the form of a refund after you register. Since spaces are so limited and due to the investment in getting the materials ready, shipped, etc. we do have a “no refunds” policy for this class. There are too many factors involved to make that feasible. We have three spaces left in the program and it is something that can be completed at your own pace once it begins–ideally, we’ll move through it together over the course of six weeks, but you have unlimited time to complete it if there is a scheduling conflict or change of plans! 🙂

      I hope it works out for you to join! I really think you’ll get a lot out of it!

      Best wishes,


  4. I just found this website while researching structure & nurture in parenting for my clients. I believe this was the universe helping as I am 33 weeks pregnant and have spent a lot of time researching natural birthing benefits. I have my LLMSW and currently practice clinical work. I have a strong interest in holistic healing & believe this can be a positive resource for me in the future. I will keep following & signed up for email updates.

  5. Hi Molly, I came across your website while doing a search for Shekhinah Mountainwater, the moment I saw your picture I felt a connection as I do when I meet or see my teachers for the first time. I am very interested in studying with you. I hope to start with the Red Tent Initiation, I would like to take advantage of the early registration but was wondering if you had a payment plan option.
    thank you and peace, K

    1. Hi Kathie,

      Wonderful! I love how connections weave together!

      Yes, we can do a payment plan. Since the size of each class is limited to only 15, we just set up the payment plans on an individual basis. Email me at and I will be happy to set it up for you.

      Best wishes,


  6. I made a payment toward this back in October. Can you send me a price for the total so I can finish paying it?

  7. Hey there. I don’t know if there are still spaces, Molly. But was wondering if you could email me. I have a couple of questions. And one about the payments. Thank you so much.

    Love and light. <3

    1. Hi Kattie,

      Yes, we do have a few spaces left. Replied to your email, but wanted to make sure the comment didn’t get ignored. 🙂
