ABOUT THE WEAVERS
We are folks who have had practice both in talking about and being with death and dying in our community. Helping friends, neighbors and family in the times preceding, during and following their transition from this life. "Midwives" or "doulas" sitting with the dying and their families, preparing the body, facilitating burials and memorials.
Further, we are committed to building community as we help each other experience this sacred liminal time.
Trees have communities too. Here in the Pacific Northwest we often see new growth coming out of the death of the old. New life sprouts out of the carcasses when our beloved evergreens are cut down or are naturally felled by wind and weather. Baby spruce, hemlock, cedar and fir, as well as salal, huckleberry and ferns take root and grow out of the decaying stump or fallen trunk. This natural phenomenon, perfected over eons, is an apt metaphor for the human process of our aging and dying feeding future generations.... in community....
