Gather your kindred spirits, circle your tribe, collect your community and create a time and space to share your woven voices.
. . . is the third powerful element of the Women’s Woven Voices project. Sharing your story allows your voice to be heard, connects you with your inner resources, and cultivates courage to create change.
When you are finished weaving your story cloth please take a photo and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post it in the Global Tapestry gallery. Your weaving will join others from around the world
to become a visual affirmation, a colorful call to awareness of the strength, beauty, and courageous, compassionate power of the women of the world. Thank you for adding your voice!
We'd love to keep you updated so please join our mailing list.
Please share this project with the various women’s groups that you already belong to. It’s a great way to create a deeper connection and it’s fun. You can also gather a new group of women with whom you want to share the experience: Family, friends, sorority sisters, coworkers, colleagues, neighbors, church members.
When we share our life experiences, the lessons we have learned, our success and messes, our brilliance and our shadows, we open up a gateway to personal growth and invite a deeper connection with our feminine family. There’s power in that connection that can fuel amazing transformations for us as individuals and for the communities we are a part of.
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. Create a circle of confidentiality, trust, acceptance, and non-judgement and commit to open active listening from the heart.
Here are some guidelines for sharing:
No judgment, criticism, or advice is to be given during sharing. Be brave! Tell your truth. Ask for confidentiality to be respected. Let your light shine! Share with the group or in pairs. Acknowledge the courage and strength of each woman present. Celebrate the joys and accomplishments.
When you have completed your weavings send a photo to Brecia at email@example.com to be added to the Global Tapestry Gallery.
If you feel comfortable sharing your written thoughts, experiences, and life journeys please submit them through the form below.
You are welcome to go through the process of sending in your submission in as a way to wrap up your journey, even if you don't want it shared with the project.
If you are willing to share your story, it might be printed to accompany the tapestry during exhibitions, or live here, on the website as a way to help, encourage, comfort, or strengthen others.
As a participant in Women’s Woven Voices, your story has become a unique woven work of art that will be shared as it becomes a part of the final global tapestry.
