As many of us are mothers, grandmothers, aunties within our own paths there is a great respect among us for the mothers who honor us with their presence at Spirit Weavers. We hold you in our hearts and understand fully the need or desire to bring your children to the gathering. Every year I am asked by mama’s if they should bring their child to the gathering and though I am honored with this question, I can not answer it for you. Every mother’s journey is different and your needs, desires, and vision for the gathering are a part of your path. I encourage you to envision what you want to take away from this gathering and hold that in your heart when making a decision about bringing a young child. Our vision is that the gathering become a place for self care, and though it can be very difficult to give that to ourselves as mothers, we lovingly encourage you to hold that in your vision for the experience of the gathering.
Sending love across the expanse,
