We owe much of the grace and beauty of the Red Tent Experience to our Artistic Director, Andrea "Pxz" Longoria, who helped transform our retreats into "an experience" since 2007. Through Andrea's artistic vision and dedication, a lush spiritual environment emerged to surround participants at retreats -- enhancing and deepening the connections made between women, the land, and the world at large.
