Weaving Powerful Sisterhoods
Ancient rituals have the power to transform the goddess in each of us. For me, it has always been immersed in the ritual of textiles.
I have ask myself – how can we use textiles as talismans for safely navigating these dangerous times?
One of the highlights of my decade in Asia was spending a month in a Thai weaving village. My role was to suggest textile designs the tourists would find appealing and ideas for running a weaving business.
The blanket the village women gifted me goes with me everywhere I travel and has been my meditation blanket for over 20 years.
I was humbled to be invited to the cremation ceremony of a master weaver. Her family gently wrapped her in all her prized weaving and lit the wood coffin.
I was horrified until her friends explained she would have her weaving to comfort her in the afterlife. However I leave this life, my blanket is going with me!
