Sacred Weavers - Tending the Threads of Belonging with Land, Village, and Ancestors
We welcome you into the Sacred Weavers circle, to give yourself time to tend to your inner longing and experience of belonging in the world.
Time & Location
Mar 13, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. PDT
About the event
We invite you to join us on the journey of Sacred Weavers. For many of us, the yearning for belonging can evoke feelings of grief and disconnection from wholeness or home. Sacred Weavers offers pathways to healing through tending nested thresholds of belonging.
In this course, you will be invited to explore relationships with land, village, ancestors, and self through ritual, song, story, and more. We will explore weaving as a ritualized, embodied practice in belonging and ancestral connection.
We will be journeying with ancestral story to retrieve our own personal myths of healing, belonging and homecoming. The experience culminates with an initiatory ceremony, guided by lineage, weaving together the healing threads we discovered along the way.

"Deepening into myth and personal story in a co-created container is a powerful process. Through song, story, and artful facilitation, Cadence and Rue weave potent threads that bring everyone together in transformative ways. Each session of Sacred Weavers has offered me new depths to uncover tenderness and I feel the web will call me back again for more." - Wren
"I had the most beautiful time with the Sacred Weavers group. I was surprised at how easy it was to be present in our digital meetings and connect authentically through story and by sharing our experiences in the group exercises. In a world full of superficial interaction I am grateful to have found this offering. I was given new tools to explore decolonial and anticapitalist paths into being present in my humanity by belonging in nature, with each other and inside myself." - NatalieFacilitators
