ReClaiming LA

The Vision Statement of Reclaiming LA is based on the Reclaiming Collective’s Principles of Unity which states 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.

Reclaiming LA acknowledges everyone’s ability to make magic – also known as changing consciousness at will, or changing the dominant cultural story. This might mean creating vibrant health, inner peace, and creative non-violent networks.

Decisions of Reclaiming LA are made by consensus, balancing individual autonomy with social responsibility in service to the earth and the community. We also value skillful leadership and expertise and strive to share, distribute, and rotate positions of power so that skills may be learned by everyone.

We are only as strong as our weakest link and we believe that hatred is a tool used to divide and oppress us all. Instead, we learn to actively listen, creating space for those who have not spoken to come forward. From all imprisonments, we sing “release.”

We see our work as teaching and making magic: the art of empowering ourselves and each other to work in service of the earth, in service of the least among us. Our vision is rooted in the magic of the Goddess, the Immanent Life Force as we experience it every day, as opposed to a formulaic, hierarchical tradition of secret knowledge. This vision honors all names for the divine.

In our classes, workshops, and public rituals, we train our voices, bodies, energy, intuition, and minds. We use these skills 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: a vibrant, sustainable, locally enfranchised, worldwide community of peacemakers.

Wheat field representing the 2017 Lammas harvest

Lammas, also called Lughnasadh, marks the beginning of the harvest season. We harvest bright summer days (soon coming to an end) and begin reaping what we’ve sown from the past few months. The Celtic god Lugh was a solar deity and a festival was held in his honor in August, his sacred month. Join us to connect with the excitement and magic of this special season when the first grains are ready to be harvested and threshed, and apples and…
