Power, Privilege and Systems of Oppression
Weaving Earth is committed to playing an active role in the disruption and dismantling of systems of oppression. We are committed to doing this work within ourselves, within our organization and within all of our programs.

We are seeking participants who are willing and wanting to do this important work together, in community, guided by nature. If this kind of work is not something you are willing to commit deeply to, we appreciate your honesty, and nevertheless, the WE Immersion is not the appropriate program for you at this time
