Lughnasadh Ritual

Lughnasadh, also called Lammas, marks the beginning of the harvest season. We gather to celebrate bright summer days (soon coming to an end), and begin reaping what we’ve sown from the past few months. Join us to connect with the magic of this special season & with beloved community, to give thanks and to welcome abundance into our lives.

Our intention for this ritual is:

We take in the warming rays of the sun and store their power to light the darker times ahead.

Join us for an Iron Pentacle class! The Iron Pentacle is one of Reclaiming Tradition’s core tools for self-transformation, inherited from the Anderson Feri Tradition.

Using our magical skills, along with moving and shaping energy, we’ll explore the five points of the Iron PentacleSEXPRIDESELFPOWER, and PASSION. These points are our birthright as free human beings. The Iron Pentacle can help us reclaim these energies and integrate them into our lives.

During this intermediate class we will explore the power and majesty of the Iron Pentacle through exercises and techniques, including ritual, trance, energy work, self-awareness, communication, journaling, and song. We’ll also develop areas where growth and balance are required, learning tools to take into our daily lives. Although the Iron Pentacle can be challenging, it is a powerful tool for personal transformation, which is the work of a lifetime.

Each point of the Pearl Pentacle radiates through us and into the world, offering the powerful and visionary qualities of Love, Law, Wisdom, Liberty/Power and Knowledge. We become the conduit through which the Pearl can flow into the world, as we honor and celebrate the sacredness of life and the Earth. This pentacle provides a framework for developing self and group awareness, building intuitive skills, and for stepping into one’s power in the world.

Within the container of class we will use ritual, movement, meditation, trance, chants, and drumming to explore the points and connections of the Pearl Pentacle and how its powerful energy can be shaped and channeled into our lives.

The energy of this Pentacle is full of depth and healing, the ability to turn wounds into jewels, a great companion tool in times of challenge.

Some Pearl Pentacle articles are available in the Reclaiming Quarterly archives.

Elements of Magic

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.

Iron Pentacle

Using our magical skills, moving and shaping energy, transforming ourselves through trance to explore the five points of our inner pentacle: Sex (primal energy), Self, Passion, Pride (self-esteem), and Power (effectiveness in the worlds). Six classes (or weekend intensive), culminating with a ritual created by the students. Learn more about the Iron Pentacle in the Reclaiming Quarterly.

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

Sliding Scale

At Reclaiming LA, we’ve chosen to offer a sliding scale fee to make it easier for more students to participate in our classes by paying what they can afford. We also have scholarships available for students who need additional assistance. It is up to each student to self-assess their ability to pay.
