Invitation to "Weaving The Dream!"
An interactive "Weaving The Dream!" celebration will happen at the inaugural
WomenRise for Global Peace Women Strike 11-11, Santa Cruz, California, USA
San Lorenzo Park, Monday November 11, 11-4pm.

Please share this invitation with everyone you know and begin to wonder what
piece/peace of cloth you will bring, your gift of cloth/fabric to be
co-creatively "woven" into this Sacred Circle. These colorful "gifts" will
consist of basically ANY piece of cloth or unfinished fabric (torn t-shirt,
remnant from a loved one's garment, something made on your loom..!), sourced
by you and holding a personal meaning you want to weave into the circle.
Dimensions that work well are 20" long x 4" wide but you can weave with
fairly odd variations on this.

When, at the end of the day, you are permeated with all the hope, heart, and
peace that a rich celebration of our connectedness engenders, you will return
again to this Weaving The Dream! circular structure and now take from it the
cloth that catches your eye. Bring it home with you, a personal piece of this
day in Herstory.

performed/undertaken across the world including in Russia, China, Australia,
France, Britain, The Amazon, and an ever- increasing number of visionary
events across the USA. Invitation to "Weaving The Dream!" An interactive

The concept for Weaving The Dream! is based on recognizing that a circle has
been the symbol of wholeness on every continent and for every culture
throughout the history of humanity, as has been the ancient craft of weaving.
Weaving The Dream! is performed as a sacred and meaningful visual metaphor.
We wish to acknowledge and honor that we understand our planet is indeed an
interconnected, interlinked, and interdependent community of "seamless
fabric"! Its purpose is to honor, celebrate and sacralize our possible future
as a harmonious and co-creative world community.

With special thanks to Denise Schabel, our San Francisco Bay Area Keeper of
the Circle (& renowned PanEurhythmy dancer!). She has gifted her energy and
presence to the WomenRise inaugural event, and brings the skeletal structure
necessary for Weaving The Dream!
