Combine your passion for the earth, activism and spirituality in this energetic tradition of ecstasy, community and deepening connections to the rhythms of the earth.
Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. Explore the Elements. Flow down into the earth. Reach up into the sky. With trance, movement, chanting, story, earth magic, spellcrafting, raising energy, and ritual creation you will learn how to create sacred space and contain, sense and move energy, which is at the heart of all change and magical transformation. Walking our talk as beings of the earth, let’s listen deeper to the voices within and dance with what is revealed.
Based on the work of Starhawk and the Reclaiming Tradition, a practice of witchcraft based on ‘the understanding that the earth is alive and all of life is sacred and interconnected. We see the Goddess as immanent in the earth’s cycles of birth, growth, death, decay and regeneration. Our practice arises from a deep, spiritual commitment to the earth, to healing and to the linking of magic with political action.’ From the Reclaiming Principles of Unity.
Participants are asked to read the first six chapters of The Spiral Dance by Starhawk in preparation for this course.
Ruby has been an activist and Reclaiming Witch for longer than she can remember, in more ways than she can count. Steeped in the magic of the coastal rainforest, she brings her passion and pleasure of working magic and deep love of the earth and watery beings to all parts of her life. Living on the edge of the Salish Sea, she has worked for many years in ocean activism and loves teaching elemental magic.
Beet is a Reclaiming Witch from Victoria. Active in the community since 1995, she has learned all sorts of things that she now enjoys sharing in classes. Her favourite magical things are: drumming, chanting, tarot, creating mystical experiences, sharing ecstatic energy, communicating with the divine and telling stories. An intuitive reader by trade, she loves to highlight the magical in the mundane by pulling the curtains back with irreverent mirth. Her background in tarot, theatre, music, activism, community organization, and the intuitive arts inform her work in this class.
