Returning for another year honoring the sacred ritual of tea, The Tea Temple at Spirit Weavers will be back celebrating with ceremony in the heart of the redwoods. The tradition of tea is something that we hold very dear as a beautiful way to greet the day, and commune together in a ritual of preparation and gratitude. Whether you are joining us for the sunrise and your morning meditation or taking in the leaf as the day comes to a close, the Tea Temple is always a sacred and nourishing time for all. We cherish this space, we cherish these women and we cherish the tea.  Cha Dao-The Way of Tea Inside the Tea Temple it is 6am and the first meditation is about to be served. One...

Sisters, we welcome you to a sacred space to honor rhythms of the moon! When we attune to the rhythm of Grandmother Moon, we step into remembrance of our divine feminine blueprint, recognize our place in the natural world, feel connected with women everywhere, and embody our truth from the sacred source of love. ~Achintya Devi With reverence for Mother Earth and for you, it is with great honor to share with you our Sister Moon Lodge at Spirit Weavers. Traditionally, in times not so long ago, when we were living closer with the Earth’s rhythms and each other, Moon Lodges/Moon Temples/ Red Tents were sacred spaces, symbolic of a womb, where women would gather to honour and celebrate the powerful & intuitive time of their bleeding phase during the dark of the moon. By entering the Moon Lodge, they stepped away from the doing-ness of family responsibilities and entered into the sacred realms of being-ness to rest, dream, nurture each other, receive spiritual insight, practice ritual and bleed...

  In a time where we have forgotten so much, the value of true elders cannot be underestimated as they serve as the storytellers, the lineage holders, the initiators of the young, and the holders of vision. These are the ones who have gathered a rich array of life experience through laying the foundations of the paths that we now walk upon, and have the gift to distill that experience into wisdom with a willingness to share with their community. We are thrilled and honored to welcome many wonderful elders to this year’s Spirit Weavers Gathering! Some notes of conduct: There will be a designated housing space for the use of our elders this year, the Crone’s Nest. Please respect this space as a private residence, and do...

You are invited to join us in The Roots Tent, a new Spirit Weavers community space created to foster connection with the stated Earth Ethic and Pledge to the forest we will gather in. We invite you to visit us as we swap seeds, learn about the soil web of life, discuss habitat restoration projects, meet plants on our daily herb walks, and discuss our role in becoming empowered stewards of our home. This is a place to get our hands and feet in the soil, to connect with the plants, to experience and celebrate the influence of the elements in our lives, to learn ways of right living in accordance with the earth, and to find support as we become aware of our ecological realities. At The Roots Tent, you will find...

  Sipping tea beneath the Redwoods is part of the simple, transformational magic of the Spirit Weavers Gathering, and we are so thrilled to welcome sisters back to the Tea House. With tea we commune with the plants and flowers that we steep, and with our sisters while we share the sacred, cozy space of the Tea House together. The Spirit Weavers Teahouse serves as a place of regeneration, nourishment, and quiet connection. Each dawn, noon and night we carefully hand-blend batches of tea from our radiant array of organic and wild-crafted herbs, selecting the plants most attuned with the energy of each moment of the gathering. This year we will also be adding the Tea Grove, where simple hot water and a selection of tea bags can be...

Hey mamas , As we have begun the vision of expansion within Spirit Weavers, we have chosen to hold space for mama’s at the gathering in the form of the Mama Bear Lodge. We created this space with the intention of support and care. However, we are always learning about the best way to hold up our mamas and every year without fail we face the question from several mama’s of weather they should bring their little babes to the gathering or not. While this question must be answered individually it is our hope that by addressing what we can offer to the mama’s out there, we can create a clear picture for you to base the decision of bringing your babe . Mama Bear Lodge   The lodge...
