2017 Ostara with Reclaiming LA
March 25, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$10 – $20
Join Reclaiming LA to celebrate the Spring Equinox. Also known as the 2017 Ostara, this ritual celebrates the halfway mark between winter and summer when day and night are equal length. The Spring Equinox marks one of four special points on the Earth’s rotation around the Sun when light and dark hang in perfect balance.
In ritual space we’ll come together to celebrate springtime and growth – the renewal of life that appears on the earth after winter. This is a time to break free from that which has been holding us back. It’s a time to shed the baggage and make a fresh start – to move on, to look forward rather than behind.

WHAT TO BRING
Please bring food and drink to share for the post-ritual potluck.
Please bring your own reusable/washable plate, cup, utensils, and napkin.
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.
To support those in recovery, this ritual is “clean and sober”.
Reclaiming LA is a community 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.
