Call for 2016 Seva Sisters!

Call for 2016 Seva Sisters!

2015-Spirit-Weavers-0766 copy
Our seva sisters (selfless service/work-trade) are essential to the magic, intention and feel of our gathering.  We are so grateful that you have been called to be in service to the sisterhood. Without you we could not make this the beautiful coming-together of the feminine heart that it is.
 
Applications for seva are due by November 30th.  We will respond to your application no later than December 8th.  If not accepted for sister seva, you will still have time to register as a paying participant.  General registration for Spirit Weavers Gathering will open Monday, January 7th.
 
You must be 18 and older to apply for a seva position.
 
We offer full seva positions, 25 hours of service, in exchange for the full cost of tuition. Responsibilities for the seva crew include everything from setup and breakdown to Kitchen Crew, decorating, helping with parking or registering attendees, grounds maintenance and bathroom cleanup, Information Booth, Keiki Camp, and the Tea House, as well as many other tasks to help the gathering flow smoothly.

We will ask that some seva sisters come early to help with set up, organizing and decorating, and other sisters come later and stay later for breakdown and clean up.

This year we have the Sun and Moon Sessions to accommodate more women. When you fill out the application you will be asked which session you prefer to work, the Sun Session from June 2nd-6th, the Moon Session from June 9th-13th, or if you would like to work both sessions. Please know that the Seva commitment will be 7 days for one session, or 14 days for both. You will also be asked what your preferred availability is. For the Sun Session you can commit to Tuesday May 31 to Monday June 6, or Wednesday June 1 to Tuesday June 7. For the Moon Session you can commit to Wednesday June 8 to Tuesday June 14, or Thursday June 9 to Wednesday June 15.

All seva sisters are required to arrive on site by noon on the agreed upon start day. If you have not arrived by 3pm on your start day your position will be forfeited.

You will be scheduled in primarily one work area during the gathering, though you might be asked to help in a number of other areas during setup and decorating and during breakdown and cleanup. Therefore, we are looking for applicants who are flexible and able to do a variety of tasks.

Our vision is to have you be able to take classes and also be in service to the community. On the skillshare class days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, your work hours for the day will probably be around 6 hours at the most. That should leave space for one class each day, perhaps more. Please understand though that signing up for seva crew does mean missing out on some class time and other group activities. We ask that you trust in receiving what you need from your time at the gathering, letting go of expectations and flowing with what is needed to bring forth another successful Spirit Weavers Gathering.
