ELEMENTS OF MAGIC
Come deepen your practice with the Elements of Magic: Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Spirit. We will meet and dance with each element, learn to craft ecstatic Reclaiming-style rituals, cast spells, ground, sense, direct, and raise energy, and develop relationships with Goddesses, Gods and Mysterious Ones of many forms. Each class is also an experiential, participatory ritual (and our ritual style is EIEIO – ecstatic, improvisational, ensemble, inspired, organic.) With music, movement, theatre, trance, and deep magic, we will work with our Elemental allies and each other to build our power in service to healing the Earth and its people. All genders, sexual orientations, races, and people of varying economic ability are welcomed and empowered here.

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS: Willow and Raven
I am a musical faery-loving priestess of transformation and have been teaching magic in the Reclaiming tradition of witchcraft as well as Middle Eastern drumming internationally since 1997. I have chosen to see transformation as an art form I can dance to, and have embraced it as a way of life as a full-time priestess, facilitator, counselor, consultant, and activist. I love using the vehicles of music, trance, dance, singing, art, sacred theatre, and other forms of creativity to dive into deeper explorations of our magic and power. In these challenging times we are collectively in a pivotal global Rite of Passage. This magic is needed now more than ever before. We will find deep inner resources of strength and healing to access for ourselves and to share far and wide throughout the fabric of our lives as “we work for all forms of justice: environmental, social, political, racial, gender and economic.”* I look forward to diving into this deep magic with you.
*from the Principles of Unity in the Reclaiming Tradition
My name is Raven and I am a genderqueer Reclaiming witch. I am a priest of The Morrigan and I use my magic for personal, community, and global revolution. I also work with the dark aspects of the Goddess of inner transformation along with death work and mediumship. I own Raven Mysteries where I teach and facilitate workshops. I am a Reiki practitioner and use Reiki for both human and Earth healing. Drumming, reading, and mathematics are some of my hobbies.
