When I first heard about this Gathering almost 4 years ago I had such a deep calling to attend that I made it a priority to go that Summer. I went alone without really knowing anyone there, which I am grateful for. I fell in love with every woman there and beyond. Despite having pretty high expectations, the actual experience surpassed them all and I had no idea to what degree my life would be touched by this event.
Aside from all of the learning, sharing, creating, playing, dancing, praying, supporting, and celebrating that takes place over the course of those 5 glorious days, singing in unison with hundreds of women around a sacred fire in reverence is some of the most delicious medicine life has to offer and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s ancestral. It’s in our DNA-I’m sure of it. I will never miss a single one of these gatherings if I can help it. Every year it humbles me, fills my heart to the brim, and inspires me to do better in this world. It has enriched my experience as a woman in this life, and I truly feel blessed to be a part of it’s magic every year. The work that is being done at Spirit Weavers is real. It is beautiful, powerful, and important. It is transformative, healing, and it is so needed right now (the food is bomb too).
