Join Reclaiming LA to celebrate SUMMER SOLSTICE in the city! This mid-summer solar festival, also known as Litha, occurs when the sun is at its maximum elevation in the Northern Hemisphere, and marks the longest day of the year. From the moment of Summer Solstice, the sun begins to wane and embark on its journey towards autumn and the harvest season.
We’ll be working with the Norse deities Freya and Frey and the Service point of the Pearl Pentacle.

To support those in recovery, this ritual is “clean and sober”.
We will be hosting a bardic pre-ritual gathering in the Green Man’s classroom area prior to the ritual. Please consider bringing a devotional/bardic offering to share with your fellow celebrants before the ritual – a song, a poem, a piece of art – in honor of the season and the turning of the Wheel.
Reclaiming LA is a community of women and men in the greater Los Angeles area who celebrate earth-based spirituality in support of justice in all its forms – environmental, social, political, racial, gender, and economic. Our vision is rooted in the religion and magic of the Goddess, the Immanent Life Force. Our work is about teaching and making magic: the art of empowering ourselves and each other; healing ourselves, each other, and the earth.
