For the 11th annual 2024 Gathering, our intention is to return to our roots and original vision of Spirit Weavers Gathering. This original vision was one of sharing hard skills and crafts, all with the intention and viewpoint being shared with honor, and in sacred communion with Mother Earth.
Over the last decade, Spirit Weavers has become known for its profound ceremonial and life changing offerings, and as a place where deep transformational work was taking place. The classes offered over the years have ranged widely from craft and skillsharing to ceremony, ritual, and spirituality based classes.
We are grateful for the whole spectrum of experiences and classes that have been shared at Spirit Weavers. After a decade of gathering, we’ve learned about the capacity and nature of our shared gathering container. We envision the gathering as a place to come together to learn new tools, dip your toes in with new skills, meet people, and connect over skillshare. Through hands-on craft, we can connect to the land and to each other in a grounded way, making space for the deeper ceremonial work to continue outside the gathering container.
There are a handful of ceremonies that have been a part of the heart of Spirit Weavers from the beginning, and these will continue. This year for the 2024 gathering, our intention is to call in more hard skills and traditional crafts offered by makers and artisans in our workshops and class offerings.
We welcome all ages and all walks of life to come and share with us each year. When choosing instructors and workshop offerings, we go through an extensive application process, calling in instructors and facilitators who are committed to their wisdom path/lineage and have permission to share their craft with integrity in a honoring & respectful way. It’s important to us that we are offering a range of different workshops and teachings that all encourage exploration in our lives and souls and that each class is chosen in hopes it will serve our community in an uplifting way.
We receive hundreds of applications and often many of them are multiple offers of a similar class. We have also chosen many of the same classes and teachers year after year, and this year may be calling in a range of new offerings that haven’t yet been shared at Spirit Weavers.
Our main vision for classes offered at the gathering are Earth-Based Skills, Craft, Environmental Education, Women’s Empowerment, Sustainability, Homesteading and Herbalism. We look for those who have cultivated their spirit, practice, and a passion to share their wisdom and teachings. These inspiring beings have begun to grow their own roots through years of studies with various teachers and/or mentors and are now open to pass along their craft or skill.
