With a grand vision to bring together at least 1,000,000 wild, wonderful and wise women to create profound change in our world, The Silver Tent is a global space where women over 50 are discovering this to be the most meaningful, powerful and celebratory time of our lives.

In this psychological safe space we re-ignite our deepest dreams and recognise our wisdom, receive support from our silver sisters and become a force of nature in the world.

How does it deliver this? Through on and offline summits, coaching, mentoring and healing, luscious retreats and workshops, global travel experiences with Silver Tent Travel as well as Silver Circle meet ups both virtual and on the ground.

Our current foundational team, speakers for the launch summit, and faculty coaches/mentors/healers are wise elders themselves, experts in their field, have great experience in running relevant events and in particular supporting women like us to recognise our value and wisdom through a number of modalities.

We’ll share our voices and stories with the wider community in whatever way is most meaningful for each of us including Silver Tent TV and Radio. As we grow we’ll launch Silver Tent Publishing with a bi-monthly digital magazine and a series of ‘Stories from The Silver Tent’ books, as well as support our favourite humanitarian and life-affirming causes through crowd giving and crowd action.

‘Men cannot stop the Third World War. It is not in their cells. But women can. A man can love a child, but he doesn’t go through the labour pain. The solutions on this Earth are not in the hands of men. The solutions on this Earth are in the hands of the woman, in the psyche of the woman.’ Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan

As a Social Enterprise, our finances will be transparent and a substantial percentage of profit (when we get to that point) will be poured in to a Silver Tent Foundation to be used to support paradigm changing projects which inspire our membership so we can create and collaborate towards a brighter future.

Many women are saying ‘How come this hasn’t been done before?’ and ‘How will you fund it?’ Our answer is that we could get investment to bring it fully to fruition but we’d be bound by the ‘bottom line’. Crowd funding is a frequent suggestion. But what we’re doing is offering great membership options to act as on-going crowd-funding instead.

Membership

We’re excited to offer you a vibrantly warm and inclusive welcome no matter which membership option you choose – we’ll celebrate birthdays, successes and milestones, encourage your adventures, and support you through your challenges. We’ve created a safe space where you can express yourself from your darkest fears to your highest visions and find empowering support, as well as offer it. You’ll be part of a vibrant community of women exploring our innate wise elder wisdom, becoming part of a movement to change the paradigm about older women and inspire younger generations.

The Team

Francesca Cassini, Founder

Francesca is an inspirational storyteller using real life stories to illustrate that when you follow your heart come what may you tap in to the collaborative essence of nature and nothing is impossible. She does this by challenging herself, producing personal stories through writing and video, sharing other people’s inspirational stories as well as writing visionary fiction.

An intuitive mentor for over 20 years she has also published The Changing Times magazine, was Editor of Conscious Traveller Magazine, and been a founder member of a Conscious Living social network. Her first novel uses the theme of ‘love being the vital force which brings our imagination to life’ and is the first in a trilogy on the resurrection of the feminine.  She writes and produces video diaries, is compiling a book filled with inspiring journeys from the head to the heart, and is the founder of The Silver Tent community. She believes that our elder women are a powerful untapped resource and when we recognise our wisdom and work together we can change the world. 
 
About her name she says: ‘People often ask me about my name. How did I end up being called Francesca Cassini without an ounce of Italian blood? The story is my paternal grandfather, as a Jew, walked out of Russia during the pogroms and made his way on foot to Italy. ‘You can’t sing opera with a name like Cassinsky’, said Caruso, after teaching him to sing. So my grandfather changed his name to Cassini, promptly came to England and sang on the Vaudeville stage instead.’
