Who & What is the Reclaiming Tradition?
Reclaiming is a community of people working to unify spirit and politics. Our vision is rooted in the religion and magic of the Goddess — the Immanent Life Force. We see our work as teaching and making magic — the art of empowering ourselves and each other. In our classes, workshops, and public rituals, we train our voices, bodies, energy, intuition, and minds. We use the skills we learn to deepen our strength, both as individuals and as community, to voice our concerns about the world in which we live, and bring to birth a vision of a new culture.
Reclaiming is a Tradition of Witchcraft that began in the 1980s in Northern California and by the year 2000 had adherents throughout North America and in parts of Western Europe. There is now a flourishing Reclaiming community in Australia with two annual WitchCamps.
Reclaiming is a non-profit religious organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area which has tax-exempt status under federal and state law. On the Reclaiming Website you will find information describing the structure and history of the organization and a description of who does what.
