So Much Power In A Word
Unleash the story of your past, tomorrow has yet to be written.

STEP 1

You are being asked to recall the many threads of experience that have made up your life until now. When you reflect on the situations, circumstances, environments, and people that have shaped you as a woman, you have the opportunity to view your life story with a new perspective, make new connections, and hatch new insights into your unique strengths.

You are encouraged to embrace this project with a heart full of compassion and curiosity, allowing your inner spirit to guide you.

Only you can decide what you want to include. This is a chance to recall achievements, relationships, journeys, economic status, experiences related to heath- anything that you feel has been a significant part of your life story.

Here is a guided meditation to help you to align with your inner guides. Get comfy and press play on your right when you’re ready.

STEP 2

Writing out your reflections allows you to process experiences that you found challenging, bringing a new understanding to the role that they played in your life. You also get to celebrate and revisit your joy, love, excitement and personal growth.

You may awaken a range of emotions so be aware that this is an expected element and allow yourself to move through each feeling as it comes.

Nurture yourself with a comfortable setting and allow a window of time to write.

It’s a great way to create a deeper connection and it’s fun.  You can also gather a group of women with whom you want to share the experience: Family, friends, sorority sisters, coworkers, colleagues, neighbors, church members.

Order your loom kits and set a time to circle up. The how-to videos will walk you through the set-up of the loom, the weaving and the finishing.  Download the writing prompts for each member of the group.  Allow time for self-reflection and writing. Weaving together in community can be very fun and sets the mood for sharing.

Acknowledge the courage and strength of each woman present. Celebrate the joys and accomplishments.

Share the project with women in your community.

The Women’s Woven Voices tapestry is made up of the story cloths of women from around the world. Woven into those stories are the men in each woman’s life.

Together we can foster a culture of self-knowledge and sharing that builds courage and fosters a sense of power in women everywhere to contribute to their communities in positive ways.

You can actively listen and allow women to tell the story of their lives, as a catalyst for change, particularly by opening up discussions about issues of domestic violence and sexual abuse in a safe and supportive way.

You can promote resilience, compassion, open communication, healing and peace in individuals and communities.
