Helping women discover the Spiritual Strength of our Menstrual Cycle,
and living our Womb Wisdom at Menopause and Beyond!
Hi, I'm DeAnna
Like many women, I struggled with PMS, and for many years viewed my period as a bother and a nuisance.
In 1992 I began a personal journey toward embracing my monthly cycle, which led me to “reverse the curse!”
Having already been a trained coach and facilitator at the time, I called my first Menstrual Empowerment circle in 1994. The response was overwhelming, and the journey embarked upon — profound.
In 1995 I coined the term ‘INNER MAIDEN’ as a result of recognizing the deep need in all women for soothing, healing, and reclaiming the adolescent girl within us, who may have never been welcomed into womanhood.
In Israel/ Palestine, my country of origin, I helped Jewish and Palestinian women surpass political, religious, and cultural differences by deeply bonding as cycling women.
Since founding 'Red Moon - School of Empowerment for Women & Girls' in 1994, I have been teaching nationally and internationally, empowering women to reclaim menstruation as source of inner guidance and spiritual renewal; Coaching Moms in the art of welcoming girls into empowered womanhood, and training women to hold Red Tents in their communities.

Raves from Around the World
“I had never felt good about being female and for the past 10 years have experienced extreme, debilitating menstrual pain. I had tried dietary changes, orthodox medicine and natural therapies with little improvement. I started searching for those who celebrated womanhood and our cycles - this led me to DeAnna L’am.
We have now been working together for three months and during my last two moon times I have taken only five anti-inflammatory tablets, when I used to take up to 20 - a significant decrease.
DeAnna’s work resonated with me at a core level and I have totally turned around my perception of my body, my flow and my spirituality. I now feel myself to be a blessed and beautiful woman. I am grateful.”

"I am forever changed by the experience of the Red Moon event!
I connected with a long-ago part of myself, with which I’d been thirsty to connect. Since the workshop, I have been called to be more of the woman that I already am, in a greater way than I knew possible!
This workshop is a multi-dimensional way to call forth your youthful spirit and harvest the gifts that are still available to you as a woman on this earth.”
~ Amy Mansfield Weinberg, mother and counselor, Sacramento, CA
“What a transformation! To come back to my body, spirit and soul… You have given me insights to connect with myself, as well as my mother and my daughter! I hope women around the world will come to experience such connection and transformation.
Thank you with all my heart!”

“When I started my work with DeAnna I was scared, unsure, and not believing in myself. Through dedication, and the inspiration from what I was learning, I am walking away after 12 weeks with self-awareness, inner harmony, and love. Thank you!”
~ Jennifer Patterson, Vermont
“Thank you so much for this class. I got so much out of it... just what I needed... Thank you for helping me find the final pieces to my maiden story. I honor your skill, mastery and loving commitment.”
~ H.M. Life Coach, Massachusetts
