Dr. Isadora Leidenfrost Red Tent and Documentary Screening

Published Robbie - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 6:23pm

Take a second and imagine a place flowing with red fabric and plush pillows and a community of women who have nothing to hide and everything to share.

Dr. Isadora Leidenfrost has created a documentary based on creating this very space across the world. Inspired by the novel "The Red Tent," she recreates a space celebrating every aspect of womanhood.

With its ability to address social problems, reflect values, knowledge, and the basic feelings of women, the Red Tent fulfills a constellation of gendered societal needs:

To create a place that honors and celebrates women; enable open conversations about the things that women don’t want to talk about in other venues; promote positive ideals for womanhood; educate women about their bodies; educate women about natural menstrual remedies; create an open dialogue about sex; share birthing information; discuss issues of body image and self-acceptance; provide a place where women’s voices can be heard; to provide a spiritual place for women where they can laugh, cry, sing, dance, give each other back or foot rubs, play with face and body painting, give or receive massage and other types of body work, tell stories, eat soup, drink tea, sleep, meditate, journal, share poetry, create artwork, knit … just to name a few!

Join us Saturday, April 12th, as Dr. Leidenfrost hosts a special screening of her documentary, "Things We Don't Talk About" and then stay to witness how she transforms Wild Iris Books into a Red Tent.
