The Our Haven Women’s Gathering was established as a way for the women of the Our Haven Community to come together as women. In current society we are most often separated into small family units. We generally grow up with our mothers and sisters as the only other women in our lives. There are those of us who are lucky enough to also have grandmothers, aunts and sometimes close friends. However, rarely does this amount to community. In reality, society can cultivate toxic relationships between women. The expectation is typically that we are competitive toward one another. At Our Haven we are striving to reject these notions. We wish to come together and rebuild what modern society has torn down. We wish to build each other up. It is our hope that this year’s theme, “We use our light to weave a web” will inspire you to do the same.
Saturday will start with discussion and meditation to get us in the mood for connecting. Then we will work on exploring the Labyrinth, and its connection to us. As we learn about labyrinths, we will talk about their history and connection to women’s mysteries. We will even build a labyrinth of our own! Afternoon activities will heat up with a bonfire basics workshop and an all hands on deck bonfire build. If you can, bring a pair of boots, clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty, and some work gloves. Those of us who are able, may be doing a little heavy lifting. For those who are not of able body, no worry, there is plenty of help you can give.
There’s a full schedule just waiting for us, all that’s missing is you! Register today and join us for a fun weekend in the woods!
