Who Is Reclaiming?

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.

Founded around 1980 in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Reclaiming tradition now includes several dozen regional communities across North America and in Europe and Australia.

A 501c3 nonprofit called Reclaiming Collective is based in San Francisco. Several other Reclaiming communities are also organized as 501c3 nonprofits.

We hope you enjoy the site and the links to our kindred sites such as Witchcamp.orgWeaveAndSpin.org, and ReclaimingQuarterly.org
