Elements of Community Magic
“Our tradition honors the wild, and calls for service to the earth and the community.” In magical community, we bring our diversity, visions, intentions, words, actions, selves, souls and power-fullness to the collective. As co-holders of the beautiful, intersectional, feminist, anarchist, magical tradition that is Reclaiming Witchcraft, we birth the world we want to live in by changing our consciousness at will and breathing into being the living ecosystem that holds our collective magic: community.
Healing happens in relationship, between bodies, hearts, nervous systems and spirits. And, the struggle is real. Conflict is part of relationship, feelings are hurt, mistakes are made, egos are wounded, power is abused. Community is wonderfully queer and wholey non-binary: there is not a single story here. Wonderful and terrible. Beautiful and messy. Brilliant and exacerbating. Powerful, transformative, co-created: community magic.
This community magic class is dedicated to bringing to life the spellwork outlined in our Reclaiming Principles of Unity: “to create and sustain communities and cultures that embody our values, that can help to heal the wounds of the earth and her peoples, and that can sustain us and nurture future generations.” This is a skills class, offering concrete pathways, tools and a collective language for how we make Reclaiming magic.
