In this workshop we will:
• Honour what has wounded us and where we are vulnerable and where we are strong.
• Explore magical and practical tools of self protection.
• Build a magical shield (materials provided including wood, hide, metal, and stones).
• Create pathways of knowing when to raise and when to lower our shields.
Some situations and circumstances are painful. They can leave us reeling, confused or feeling attacked. Other times we may find ourselves bundled up and over protected, regretting that our armour has isolated us from life. Here we will explore when to lower our shields and when to raise them using ritual and art to find balance, unexpected strengths, and ways of walking in the world. Come and explore the Art of Self Protection with us as we Wield the Shield. This work will be held in ritual space in a small intimate group.

A new monthly witchy gathering has begun!
It started as the Chat N Chew, designed for newcomers and those interested in learning about Reclaiming. It has morphed into a place where Reclaiming Witches gather to connect socially or spiritually, both or other. Conversation, laughter, discovery, magick. Delicious food and hot drinks. Our own private windowed space. The Cauldron.
Each gathering will be what those present make it. This is a time for us to come together and just ‘be’.
Newcomers are welcome.
We will look to everyone to co-create a space that is safe and comfortable. Please refrain from wearing scented products. All Reclaiming events are alcohol and drug-free.
There is no fee for attending. You could order some brunch, lunch, snacks, drinks or/and make a donation for the use of the space.
RSVP’s are appreciated. Email Lily at firstname.lastname@example.org . There is limited space, and knowing the size of the group in advance helps in preparing the space.
