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.
