We are cancelling this class. The intense schedule was clearly not feasible for most people who want to take the class. If you have already signed up, you know this because I’ve already spoken directly to you about it.
We are in the process of redesigning the class to be a 6-moonth version. We will create a new Event with the dates within the next few days.
Elements of Magic is An introductory course in Reclaiming Tradition
Using the art of magic, we deepen our vision and focus our will, empowering ourselves to act in the world. This class is appropriate for beginners, as well as for those who want to reinvigorate their personal practices.
In the tradition of STARHAWK & Reclaiming, this class will explore the Elements of Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Spirit as used to develop a practice of Goddess Spirituality and Magic, sometimes called Witchcraft.
Working through each individual element, students will learn & refine techniques to include: Creation of Sacred Space, breath-work, spell-craft, chanting, visualization & trance, and structuring rituals in an experiential format. We will learn to sense, shift and move energy. This is an opportunity to experience deep magic as we learn the skills on which to build our individual practices. The concept of the triple self and its importance in this magical tradition will be introduced. Once aligned, we will open the whole of ourselves to the beauty and love around us, creating rituals and practices that can transform us and the worlds about us.
Preparation: Read the first six chapters of The Spiral Dance, by Starhawk.
This class is considered the first of the Reclaiming Tradition’s core classes. Sarah, an initiated Reclaiming Tradition priestess and teacher, and Beth, a longtime student in the tradition, will facilitate class. Please be committed to attending for the entire weekend.

About the Cost:
In Reclaiming, we try to balance the need to be justly compensated for our labor with our commitment to make our work available to people of all economic levels. By using a sliding scale, we hope that those who can afford to do so will pay on the higher end.
Goddess traditions are growing in our culture. It is a call from and to the ancient Goddess and Her immanence. It is a call to know ourselves in all of our parts, so that we can create the powerful magic that changes all of the worlds. While we live in a culture of domination and control, sacred worlds full of desire, beauty, love and grace surround us and the Craft of the Wise opens them to us. Witches honor the cycles of nature, the earth and the goddesses and gods that live within each of us. Reclaiming is an ever-evolving tradition that is rooted in Eco-feminism and the Feri Tradition. It is dedicated to personal empowerment, teaching and unifying spirit and politics.
