6th Annual Women’s Healing Retreat:
Friday eve, July 17th to Sunday, July 19th, 2020
Here we are. The 6th year we gather in Sacred Sisterhood. We Circle and come to know who we are within the Tribe of Women; and who we are within the Sacred Circle of Divine Feminine Love.
Woman Weaver ~ Dreaming the World Awake
What are dreams, truly? What meaning do we take from dreaming in today’s world?
Dreams capture us, and enrich us; they frighten us and inform us.
The Dreamtime, the creative matrix, is not a place to get to or go to; rather, it infuses all matter and energy, connecting every creature, every rock, every star, and every ray of light or bit of cosmic dust. It is the Web.
We are inviting you, Weavers, to weave a Web, thus creating a thread between to you and the Power you possess to Dream the World Awake.
I have heard tell that Dreamers for the Tribe were the only ones allowed to sleep with their heads in the East. There, they would catch the dream and bring it into their awareness; they would interpret the message, and share their visions with the rest of the Tribe. The Dreamers hold the sacred knowledge that the very power to dream is an active part of Creating the World around us. We, the Daughters of Spider, know dreaming reality is not only an ability, but our Collective Work.
The Old Woman who lives in the Cave; She whose shadow is of a Great Spider – She who Weaves the Tapestry of Creation- She asks you:
~ What is your Soul Destiny? Why are you here? What purpose does your life have? Why this moment in the Web?
All Weavers know every thread is connected. Every thread is woven to withstand the challenges which befall us, and embrace the inevitable transformations.
We have grown through our Dance with the Elements to Become Awake to Our Collective Role as Weavers of the Web; weaving change and awakening the world to the possibility of new beginnings, new ideas, hope, and resiliency. We are in troubled times and our Magic is being called upon to Weave the inner threads of genius, imagination and wisdom.
We, the Daughters of Spider, are waking with the knowledge of a Sacred Thread connecting the mind with the heart… to the next thread tying us to the dream of life… leading us to the purpose of our Soul. As we weave our web, we awaken The Dreamer inside us, and begin to glimpse the patterns unfolding, weaving our story into the Collective Story. In the work we do together during this year’s retreat, Spider will teach us how to read and weave Her timeless mythic patterns woven from within. We are being called to renew ourselves, cast away the broken strands, and Weave our World Awake.
Are you tired of living in a web you feel you have no mastery of? Are you willing to Awaken the Spider within and work to Weave a New Dream… a new possible future?
We are beyond minor repairs to our woven story; we need to cast our strands to new thoughts, new ways, and build a web so large it awakens the sleeping masses. Dreaming the World Awake can only begin if we first awaken the Dreamer within us. Our web will ignite the imagination and the collective dreamers, spreading the vibrations of change out to every strand.
Crone Woman Spider teaches us how to weave our world with power and grace. Our Ancestors, and the Dream Keepers today, understood and understand, that we’re not only creating our experience of the world…but are dreaming up the very nature of reality itself – that is, this Life is but a Dream.
Dream with us.
