The Red Tent

Joan’s Red Tent is a holistic healing space of nourishment, tranquility and creation. Located in Gramercy, LA, it is where Joan Murray lives and works. Here you can meet for your Awakening Through Color consulation to explore the profound effects of color in your life using the ancient Aura-Soma® color system, release tensions deep in your _nervous system with light-touch CranioSacral Therapy, enliven your skin health with an AEOS Holistic Facial, and engage in an Empowerment Circle with women peers as together we support one another on our personal growth journeys.

Joan’s Red Tent is also the studio of the Gift of Earth & Sea jewelry. Joan’s designs incorporate French handcrafted lace-making techniques, modern crochet, beaded embroidery; interweaving seed beads, gold, silver, precious and semi-precious gems.

A portion of the profits from the sale of the Gift of Earth & Sea jewelry will support the Tyler Murray Memorial Fund to commemorate Tyler’s wishes for healing. Ty was compassionate and kind; he never turned away from any person and he wanted to save every stray pet that crossed his path. He had started his healing path on earth as a massage therapist. The Tyler Murray Memorial Fund will provide financial assistance to those who are not able to pay for the healing services of the Red Tent.
