23 May Making the Invisible Visible: A New Space at Spirit Weavers

Dear Spirit Weaving Sisters— I am a longtime admirer of your beauties. For the past several years I have watched with longing a parade of gorgeous images from the gathering, witnessing the webs of community created. The women of Spirit Weavers love and support each other. As a mother, an artist and writer, a grower and keeper of mythic lore, a hedge witch and ritualist, I feel kinship with the women of Spirit Weavers, find myself seeking their websites and social streams, laughing with the beauty, wishing myself a part of the Spirit Weavers work and world. Yet, I cannot attend. I have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, otherwise known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I’ve had it for eight years but was only diagnosed this past December. It is a shapeshifter of a disease, and though I’ve appeared...

11 Mar Healing in the Forest

We are sisters on a journey, singing in the sun. Remembering the ancient ways the healing has begun! This year we are excited to welcome back our beloved healing village, a positive place for sisters to commune in healing and caring for our physical, mental and spiritual selves with the aid of a circle of women healers. The healing village is a quiet supportive sanctuary for intentional exploration. It is an opportunity to experience a curation of healers from a range of modalities present to help restore, ground, focus, and accelerate your growth. During our time together as a collective on the land, many feel called to turn inward to a more private, confidential space. In this space, women can integrate and reflect upon their personal experience, engaging in self...

05 Sep Standing in Solidarity with Standing Rock

  The Spirit Weavers Community proudly stands in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, the Lakota people, and all Indigenous Peoples who fight to preserve and protect their homes, their lands, and the future of our children. We stand in solidarity with all who declare these things sacred: clean water and air, lush forests, meadows, prairies, wetlands, and ways of life that honor the people of the earth over profit to few. We do this with the belief that to hold something sacred means that its wellbeing becomes the standard by which we judge our actions and decisions. In the words of the defenders of Standing Rock, water is life and so water is sacred. The water supply of the Standing Rock Sioux is threatened by...
