$5 – $20 suggested donation, no one turned away for lack of funds

Join Reclaiming LA to celebrate BELTANE, also known as May Eve, a cross-quarter holiday celebrating the height of Spring. Beltane is a festival of flowers, fertility, sensuality, and delight. It’s the time when the Earth Mother opens up to the fertility god and the Faeries are afoot.

We will be working with DIANA and DIONYSUS, and our ritual intention is:
Activation. Action. Activism.

All Genders Welcome!
Children welcome with adult supervision

LOCATION
The ritual will be held at the Old Zoo in GRIFFITH PARK, Los Angeles
Guides will be available at Merry Go Round Lot Two to help find the ritual site

WHAT TO BRING/WEAR

  • Wear comfortable shoes, since it may be a bit of a walk from the parking areas
  • Bring a water bottle (and snacks, if desired) for yourself
  • If you are called, please bring percussion instruments to join in the pre-ritual drumming!

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


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.


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.
