Join us to Celebrate the festival of BRIGID – also known as Imbolc, Candlemas, or Lady Day! This is a great time of year to replenish your creative wells and perhaps make a commitment to your spiritual growth and healing journey (personal and planetary).

BRIGID is the mighty Celtic Triple Goddess of inspiration, art & poetry, healing, childbirth and smithcraft. This ritual will invite you to make a pledge for the coming year before Brigid’s flaming cauldron.

  • WHAT TO BRING
    Please bring small samples of “waters of the world” (water from your home or a special place) to share in Brigid’s Well and to take home.
  • Please bring food and drink to share for the post-ritual potluck.
  • Please bring your own reusable/washable plate, cup, utensils, and napkin.
  • We will be hosting a bardic pre-ritual gathering in the Green Man’s classroom area prior to the ritual. Please consider bringing a devotional/bardic offering to share with your fellow celebrants before the ritual – a song, a poem, a piece of art – in honor of the season and the turning of the Wheel.

To support those in recovery, this ritual is “clean and sober”.

Taught by Laurie Lovekraft and Caduceus

In this Reclaiming core class we move between the realms of myth, identity, and dreams to initiate our own transformation. Traditionally, Rites of Passage are ceremonies marking a turning point, milestone, or life transition (ex. from child to adult, marriage ceremony, death rite). Unfortunately, our industrial society has lost connection to the great spiritual mysteries and the mythic framework that gives a sense of meaning to life. This class is a powerful way to create a meaningful Rite of Passage for oneself.

For six weeks, we will focus on mythopoetic truths by deepening a relationship with the Sumerian Goddess INANNA. With INANNA’s assistance, aided by storytelling trance, release work, and dreams, we will receive our challenge(s), meet our helpers, work through our blocks, and emerge reborn. The class culminates with a ritual created by the students.

ABOUT INANNA

INANNA is the great Sumerian Goddess who later became identified with the Goddess Ishtar (Akkadian), Astarte (Phoenician), and Aphrodite (Greek). INANNA was responsible for the growth of plants and animals, for fertility and became the goddess who ruled over the sky, the earth and the underworld – the goddess in all her aspects. INANNA is also the Goddess of love as well as warfare; in her astral aspect, she is the planet Venus, the morning and the evening star.

Known as the Queen of Heaven and Earth, INANNA appears in many ancient Mesopotamian myths, most notably:

  • Inanna and the Huluppu-Tree – an early creation myth
  • Inanna and the God of Wisdom – in which she brings knowledge and culture to the city of Uruk after receiving the gifts from the god of wisdom, Enki, while he is drunk
  • The Courtship of Inanna and Dumuzi – the tale of Inanna’s marriage to the vegetation-god
  • The Descent of Inanna (c. 1900-1600 BCE) – in which the Queen of Heaven journeys to the underworld

For those who would like to do some reading in preparation for this adventure with Inanna, we suggest the book Inanna: Queen of Heaven and Earth by Diane Wolkstein and Samuel Noah Kramer. “From the Great Above Inanna opened her ear to the Great Below….”

Rites of Passage is a powerful way to connect with other people exploring Reclaiming Tradition magic and witchcraft. Group experience follows feminist consensus process. We aim to provide a fair and nurturing environment for all participants.

Prerequisite: “Elements of Magic” class OR Reclaiming-Style Witch Camp OR equivalent experience (please let us know).


Reclaiming’s Core Classes

Elements of Magic

With the art of magic, we deepen our vision and focus our will, empowering ourselves to act in the world. In this class we begin the practice of Magic, Witchcraft, and Goddess spirituality by working with the Elements of Magic: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. Techniques include: visualization, sensing and projecting energy, chanting, trance, creating magical space, spellcraft, and structuring rituals. Group experience follows feminist consensus process. We hope to provide a fair and nurturing environment for all participants.

Each class is structured as a ritual, and includes practical ritual and magical skills. Elements of Magic allows us to explore these skills in a supportive group setting. This class is a great way to connect with other people exploring Reclaiming-tradition magic and witchcraft.

We welcome both beginning students, and advanced students who want to deepen their experience of the sacred elements.

Prerequisite: Reading of the first six chapters of The Spiral Dance by Starhawk.

Rites of Passage

Rites of Passage focuses on dreams, myths, and language, using traditional and non-traditional tales and techniques to create a personal rite of passage.
