We’re excited to finally offer Elements of Magic in a 3-Sunday format in Los Angeles! In this class taught in the Reclaiming Tradition, we begin the practice of Magic, Witchcraft, and Goddess spirituality by working with the Elements of Magic: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. Learn how to deepen your vision and focus your Will – empowering yourself to act in the world!

Each class is structured as a participatory ritual including practical tips and magical tools. You will learn ritual technologies used in Reclaiming to create sacred space, honor divinity, and wield magical tools, such as the sword, the wand, the cone of power, the chalice, the pentacle, the cauldron, and our own bodies and breath.

We’ll explore and learn techniques including dance, drumming, chanting, trance, visualization, wish birds, sensing & projecting energy, working boundaries and Will, spellcraft, and creating and structuring rituals. 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. Group experience follows feminist consensus process. We aim to provide a fair and nurturing environment for all participants.

PREREQUISITE
Please read the first six chapters of The Spiral Dance by Starhawk. We kindly ask that students commit to attending all six classes. (Elements of Magic is a prerequisite for all other Reclaiming classes and Reclaiming LA’s Ritual Planning Cell.)


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.
