CHORUS:
Weaver, Weaver weave her thread,
Whole and strong into your web
Healer, Healer, heal her pain,
In love may she return again

VERSES:

We are dark and we are bright
We are formed from earth and light
From joy and pain our lives are spun
But all too soon the spinning ís done

No one knows why we are born
A web is made a web is torn
Like wandering seabirds we alight
And rest one moment then take flight

So may we find the hidden way
Beyond the gates of night and day
To that sweet land where apples grow
And endless healing waters flow

And at that spring may we drink deep
And wake to dream, and die to sleep
And dreaming weave another form
A shining thread of life reborn

Weaver, Weaver weave her thread,
Whole and strong into your web
Healer, Healer, heal her pain,
In love may she return again

We are dark and we are bright
We are formed from earth and light
From joy and pain our lives are spun
But all too soon the spinning ís done

  • 2016 Intention


    In the Presence of our Beloved Dead, we dance, create community and wield Love to effect change.

  • Admission

    This ritual is Bay Area Reclaiming’s largest fundraiser for the year, and supports many of our other activities, courses, ritual, and resources.

    Ticketing will be a little different this year as we will be using the box office through the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

    Our intention is to offer discounted pricing to seniors and students as has been done before, as well offering "No-one turned away for lack of funds".

    Stay tuned for more information about where, when and how you can purchase tickets online or in person.

  • When and where

    The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is located at 701 Howard Street in San Francisco.

    Doors open at 5 PM. We encourage you to arrive between 5pm and 6pm so you can view the altars, hear the prelude music, and listen as the names of the Beloved Dead are read aloud.

    The Ritual begins promptly at 6 PM
