Please join us to celebrate the AUTUMN EQUINOX – a time of balance and harvest. Also known as Mabon, this festival celebrates the halfway mark between summer & winter, when day and night are equal. We’ll celebrate the gifts of the earth and also accept that the soil is less productive. Warmth is behind us, cold lies ahead – even in Southern California! Among the Sabbats, Mabon is the second of the three Pagan harvest festivals, preceded by Lammas / Lughnasadh and followed by Samhain.

All Genders Welcome!
Children welcome with adult supervision

WHAT TO BRING

  • Please bring flowers for the altar!
  • Please bring food and drink to share for the post-ritual potluck.
  • Please bring your own reusable/washable plate, cup, utensils, and napkin.
  • To support those in recovery, this ritual is “clean and sober”.
  • 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.

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.
