Spirit Weavers Gathering is a five day celebration of cultures past and present, a remembering and practicing of basic human skills to ensure the survival of the body and the soul. Fermenting foods, weaving, dying fabrics, creating ceremony, sharing meals at night and dreams in the morning, the making of plant medicines- singing songs, together as a community- these were the common knowledge ways and part of the simple pleasures of a life lived in balance and harmony with nature. Let us gather together as Women and share our skills in remembrance of the beauty path and an honoring of our Ancestors.
Spirit Weavers Gathering empowered me // the gathering revitalized my connection to heart, nature and Mother, Spirit, myself, and women a-like through the unconditional relationships, vibrant creativity, sacred traditions, nurturing and support, heartfelt shared experiences, gifts of ritual, magical connections, and truest loves. I carry you with me ALL WAYS // I am blessed to walk this life with you all. Grateful to revel in this sweetness everyday - near or far - we are connected and I anticipate the next time we share our dreams, talents, beautiful hearts and medicine when we meet again // Aho!
A beautiful synchronicity occurred over the course of a couple of years during which I was lead to the gathering by successive leaps of fate! On my solo drive from Los Angeles I found myself becoming more excited as I got closer. I felt deep shifts in my body as I drew near and once I started climbing the mountain up from Palm Springs the most remarkable joy set in. I had never met any of my siStars and so arrived alone with an open heart. Over the days, the connections I made were profound and I find that I have dear friends and supporters across the country who I actually know relatively little about superficially, but am connected to on a soul level regardless. It was ideal for me to participate as a vendor, as well. I met many more siStars than I may have otherwise and deeply enjoyed the sweetness of working with other amazing creators. The gathering was life changing in every possible way, filling me with the power of our connections and intentions. So many of us came feeling alone and out if place and left feeling deeply together and full of gentle purpose. This is an incredible and important opportunity that is drawing to it some of the most amazing women in the world. I can't wait to see what we create next time. xoxo
Spirit Weavers was quite possibly the best thing that happened to me this year. Immediately palpable was a deep, authentic sense of a tribe that needed no explanation. It was neither forced nor timid, but rather I experienced it as a harmonious integration of empowered individuals and their unique beauty with a collective wisdom at once capable of listening, respecting, and honoring the whole, the community, the network: the loom and its threads. Spending deep time with these sisters in a sacred space, I was not only inspired by them, but inspired by them to inspire myself. I was touched by the lack of any kind of performance, not in the teachers nor in the Gathering itself. In its essential energy was a true sense of abundance, empowerment and also vulnerability and humility. At Spirit Weavers I witnessed the truth that we don't have to have all of the answers in order to bravely take steps toward our higher vision of ourselves and of the world. I witnessed the power of what happens when Spirit calls and some incredible women answer that call. I plan to continue being a part of this co-creation because it is a vibration I wish to attune to in my daily life the whole year round. A deep bow of gratitude.
So many sisters helped me transform myself in one beautiful weekend in the desert. I would not have known about them without SpiritWeavers. Elena Ray took many pictures but she took ONE picture and I saw myself as beautiful and I had never seen myself other than ordinary before. But now I see my beauty, that alone is a huge reason to come.
Spirit Weavers has been like coming home to myself and rebooting my soul, a place where Sisterhood and Sharing are the norm, a Sacred Space for the body, mind and Spirit in the most beautiful of environments. A gathering of Grace, health and wholeness, it is a yummy delight and I departed inspired and moved in ways that keep unfolding my life in the best possible direction. I have learned and incorporated so much of the invaluable teachings and I can't wait for the next gathering as Amy is the most amazing of guide, her dedication and vision seeding a beautiful community of like-mindedness.
I had no idea what Spirit Weavers was and knew nobody there. All I knew was that I needed to go. My soul longed to be apart of this thing, this gathering of women. I can't fully explain the gratitude I have for the people that helped birth this experience. It was an unimaginable significant weekend. The beauty of the land was so powerful. The women I met kindred hearts. All of us contributed to the love and joy of the space. I relish my memories of the space and feel so blessed to have been apart of this great collective of sweet hearted women. The connections I made carried past that weekend into my daily life. Even though I was painfully shy, being a witness to the experience was profoundly moving.
Attending both Spirit Weavers gatherings served as an epic platform for personal transformation. I stumbled on the first gathering not really knowing anyone and left in a state of grace and comfort - to be surrounded by such loving and wise babes sharing the magic of nurturing earth traditions was totally mind blowing. And a huge relief! I feel I've been reconnected with my soul family. The second gathering, which included my participation in the House of Flowers, deeply solidified my devotion to the ways of the Divine Feminine. What a living dream to witness a community of goddess sisters truly waking up to their natures and sharing their heart songs with each other. Into the next installment and looking forward to see how we all continue to evolve.
The gathering was a really incredible opportunity for me on so many levels. It challenged me to step into my power and offer a rattle class for the first time without my partner. It's amazing what has come of this - I have women writing me to update me on how they have decorated their rattles and even one woman is going to offer a workshop in her hometown! I got invited onto a New Moon call to sing a few medicine songs and connect with women all around the world. I am now offering an extended version of this workshop outside the gathering with the help of two dear friends who witnessed my process of bringing this class to life at Spirit Weavers. The doors that this gathering opened up are truly a gift and I know that it is just beginning. More than anything, it was such a blessing to be surrounded by so many inspirational women. I will certainly be coming back year after year for as long as this is being offered!
Spirit Weavers was a turning point in my life. I arrived at the gathering by myself, with my heart open wide and no expectations. I left it with my life full of new dear friends, a heart overflowing with love and the feeling I have gone through one of the most healing, beautiful and transformative experiences in my body and soul. An even stronger connection to the Earth and the undeniable fact that when women come together it's natural to form a bond of sisterhood and not of competition: we are cooperative sensitive beings, who are eager to listen just as much as we are to share and, together, we can help heal ourselves, our loved ones and our planet. The experience keeps unfolding and growing in my spirit.
The organizers Of Spirit Weavers hold such beautiful intention and integrity for themselves and this gathering it's no wonder so many women walk away with their lives changed forever. I for one knew I had to be there but had no idea what to expect. I had doubts within myself and a fear of going alone. I made lifetime friends and felt welcomed and seen by every sister there. Spirit Weavers is now and forever a yearly self love journey! I am forever grateful and forever changed.
Activation is the word I keep coming back to when reflecting on Spirit Weavers. There was something about that sacred land, that group of women, and the intention we all had to learn from one another during our few days there that activated something deep within me, re-awakened tender and true parts of my soul essence and reminded me of the magic of the multiverse and of my own ability to create the life I want by following my heart's deepest desires. I know that I am not the only woman at the gathering who experienced this same activation.
To me, Spirit Weavers is the new wave of the incoming matriarchal era. At the gathering, I felt deep welcoming everywhere I went. Being in the midst of so much beauty and strength might have set off my own personal insecurities, but there was so much wisewoman groundedness, and matriarchal loving-kindness flowing through everyone it kept me in a constant state of healing magic. I felt at home with everyone, and experienced myself in supported belonging everywhere I went. And I felt those energies also flowing out of me extending to everyone I met. I think that this was the weaving, an energy weaving, that is still illuminating my heart and mind. I have a new and deeply expanded respect for the feminine, and with that, for myself.
