Lotus @Paya Lebar
Traditionally Red Tents (or sometimes known as a Moon lodge) were a space created for women to come and be at their time of menstruation. They were created by women for women and decorated with red. Now they are seen as a safe space for women to gather and experience what it is like to feel heard and cared for by other women. A place where women can take off the armour of everyday and relax into being truly themselves.
Sharing about women’s matters that other women can relate to without judgment or shame. A place to slow down and feel our deep innate wisdom bubbling up. A place to reclaim your worth and beauty. A place where it is possible to feel vulnerable and relaxed at the same time. And a place to remember the power of woman in all her faces, ages and manifestations.
For women to really flourish and live as their full self we need to move beyond competition and fear between women. To create a new story of woman that is not rooted in a patriarchal context. We need to stop isolating ourselves and trying to ‘manage alone’. We need to reach out for support because women work best collectively. Simply put – we need each other – both on a personal level as well as for the collective transformation that is happening for humanity at this time. The red tent project is designed to meet this vision.
What we will do:
- Circle sharing
- Lunar Manifestation
- Special presentations
- Celebrate life, love and sisterhood
Why the Red Tent Is Held at New Moon
The new moon is the optimal time to focus on endings & beginnings as it is the void time between the last lunar cycle ending & the new one beginning. This provides the perfect opportunity for reflecting upon what your lesson has been in the previous month as well as attuning to the astrological transits and celestial/ seasonal events approaching in the coming month, and how best to make the most of those opportunities for growth & healing of past patterns.

About the Facilitator
Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.
She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling in May 2018. In practice for more than nine years, she is the only certified sexuality educator and certified sexuality educator supervisor by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore. She is also a Red Tent Women’s Circles Facilitator from Star of Ishtar.
Often cited in the local media, Dr. Lee is the appointed sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore, and Men’s Health Malaysia. She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She is the host of weekly radio show Eros Evolution on the OMTimes Radio Network. She has published three books: Love, Sex and Everything In-Between, Orgasmic Yoga and From Princess to Queen.
Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again. For her full profile, click here. Email her here.
