Welcome, and thank you for your interest in sharing your offerings at the upcoming Spirit Weavers Gathering. We are looking to curate a range of instructors and teachings that are in alignment with the vision of the Gathering.
If you have knowledge, specific skills, and wisdom that you are passionate about sharing, we invite you to bring your offering to our community.
We are gathering together to share our skills and wisdom with other women in hopes of empowering and inspiring one another. These skills are ones that may have changed our lives, and are not ours to hold onto, but learned to giveaway. May these teachings and offerings create a ripple effect of empowerment and growth for all.
We are looking for earth based skills and offerings. The classes we select represent skills that may be missing from a modern woman’s education and life experience, but in cultures of the past, represented basic human skills for ensuring the survival of the body and the soul. Fermenting foods, weaving and dying fabrics, singing songs together as a community, the making of plant medicines, these were common knowledge and part of the simple pleasures of a life lived in beauty and balance. You may, through the generosity of the teachings you share, connect someone with a new skill that becomes a lifelong passion. Our joy comes from helping others find their path.
~ Sharing with Spirit Weavers is a commitment! We ask that if you are chosen as an Instructor at the gathering that you are committed 100%. We have contracts that we will send along once you are chosen to teach so please make sure you are a strong YES before applying.
~Instructors will need to arrive to the gathering Wednesday June 3rd for Sun session and Wed June 10th for the Moon session before 2pm. If you apply and are are chosen to teach both sessions, please plan on being present the entire length of the sessions from June 3rd- the 15th of June. If you cannot commit to these time frames, it may not be the right time to share with us.
~If you have several classes in mind that you would like to offer, please add them all to this one form. All classes must be a minimum of 2.5 hours but 3 hours per class session is preferred.
~ Once again, please understand that sharing at the gathering is a commitment and we ask that you meet all deadlines for misc info regarding your shares, classes and fees if applicable over the next 6 months. Those who honor our deadlines, and show up to the gathering on time and ready to dive in are generally asked back again year after year.
~ Please know we have a zero tolerance policy for classes that may fall under cultural appropriation.
~In honoring our inclusivity policy and to make sure the gathering includes a diverse group of women, we encourage all walks of life to apply.
~As an instructor, you will need to be able to hold your offering on your own, as we cannot accommodate assistants for all classes and offerings. If your workshop or class is co-led collaboratively with another instructor, you will both need to submit an application with the class description. We can only accommodate a small number of co-led classes so we encourage instructors to apply on their own.
You have demonstrated your amazing teaching gifts and the value of your offerings. You will be asked to teach 12 hours during the gathering, and will receive a small travel stipend, all meals, and our deep gratitude! Full time positions are available to returning Instructors only.
You have demonstrated your amazing teaching gifts and the value of your offerings. You will be asked to teach 6 hours during the gathering, all meals, entry to all other classes, and our deep gratitude! We ask that chosen part time teachers pay a half price ticket of $288.00 due by Jan 1st. Part time Instructors do not receive a travel stipend. This position allows you to teach and also take part in many of the classes and activities throughout the gathering. Part Time Instructor positions are given to first time Instructors as well as returning Instructors.
YOGA, MEDITATION & MOVEMENT:
Because our Yoga & Movement team is quite small and we generally receive an abundance of applications for these spaces, we have decided to invite our 2020 team based on solid instructors we have had from years past. We will not be taking applications for Yoga, Movement & Meditation this year. Thank you for understanding.
We understand that everyone has their own unique story and song and we wish that they all could be shared in our short time together. We have just 50 positions to fill and usually receive hundreds of applications. Often times, we receive multiple applications for the same or similar class. We do our best to choose the instructor whose classes are most in alignment with the SW vision. Thank you for taking the time to apply and offer your teachings.
Applications are now closed.
