Join us when the veil is thin between the worlds of the living and the dead. During this sacred season, we celebrate our Witches’ New Year and affirm the renewal of life. We’ll gather to remember our ancestors, our beloved dead, and all those who have crossed over. Come sing and dance the Spiral of Rebirth, with our magic creating a world of beauty…. “As the darkness closes in, come dance the spiral that renews the world…”

A new location for Reclaiming LA to celebrate ritual, the Audubon Center at Debs Park is a beautiful outdoor space with access to hiking trails and nature. All are welcome at the center earlier in the day to explore, although the Reclaiming Priestesses will be ready to greet you for music, potluck, and altar-building beginning at 5PM.

Please bring photos, items, and other meaningful items of your Beloved Dead for altar-building, and a potluck item to share with community. If you would like to come earlier to create a special altar, you are welcome to do so. Please consider bringing a devotional/bardic offering to share with your fellow celebrants before the ritual – a song, a poem, a piece of art, instruments, drums, voices – in honor of the season and the turning of the Wheel. All are welcome to share!

The Ritual (& Spiral Dance) will begin at 6pm. Our intention:


All genders welcome! Children welcome with adult accompaniment. Please remember to bring food & drink to share for the pre-ritual potluck, as well as a plate, cup & utensils. To support those in recovery, this ritual is “clean and sober”

Reclaiming Los Angeles (Reclaiming LA) is a community in the greater Los Angeles area who celebrate earth-based spirituality in support of justice in all its forms – environmental, social, political, racial, gender, and economic. We welcome all genders, all gender histories, all races, all ages and sexual orientations and all those differences of life situation, background, and ability that increase our diversity.

Our vision is rooted in our commitment to the Goddess—the Immanent Life Force—and other expressions of the divine. Our work is about teaching and making magic: the art of empowering ourselves and each other; healing ourselves, each other, and the earth.

Reclaiming LA’s ceremonies are open to the public. Our classes, workshops, and public rituals are multigenerational, multicultural, sober, and ecstatic.

Reclaiming Tradition Core Classes

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.

Prerequisite: Elements of Magic class or equivalent.

Pearl Pentacle

We will work with the deep, healing energies of the Pentacle of Pearl, moving through the five points: Love, Law, Wisdom, Power and Knowledge. Learn more about the Pearl Pentacle in the Reclaiming Quarterly.

Prerequisite: Elements of Magic class or equivalent.

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. Through storytelling, trance, release work and dreams we receive our challenge(s), meet our helpers, work through our blocks and emerge renewed, reborn. Six classes (or weekend intensive), culminating with a ritual created by the students.

Prerequisite: Elements of Magic class or equivalent.
