Who is Baltimore Reclaiming?
We are a group of witches, artists, pagans, healers, activists, queers, priestesses, anarchists, theater geeks, feminists, and other good humans. 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. We gather, mostly on the Sabbats, to work magic, often for personal healing and also for the healing of our society and planet. We believe that the work we do together in our sacred circles really can change the world.
On Lammas we celebrate by turning our attention to what is around and within us. Summer is still glowing warm around us, leaving us languid with stoop stories and the music of cicadas. But we also feel it fading as the days shorten and the sun’s daily path moves further south. Traditionally, this time marks the beginning of the harvest festivals-- the gathering of wheat for flour, and the seeds for the next growing season.
