Dancing the Spiral: A Companion to the Writings of Starhawk

DTS-Cover02

Welcome to Reclaiming Quarterly’s latest project – a companion text to accompany Starhawk’s voluminous writings, featuring dozens of magical workings, ritual ideas, activist skills, pagan history, and more. The draft is now available for free download – print edition planned for 2021.

Dancing the Spiral – free download and more info.

Created in cooperation with Starhawk and Teen Earth Magic witchcamp, the goals are: (1) an exciting and challenging book for people working alone or with friends; (2) inspiration for folks to form a circle so they can do these workings with others; and (3) a fun book to flip through and get inspired!

The book also features pages of magical and activist resources – books, music, websites, free downloads, and more.This initial mock-up already contains much of the material, including the just-completed history essays.

We hope to complete and publish this book as a PDF and print edition sometime in 2021. Meanwhile, we’ll post drafts as they develop.

Cantos Sangrados recording delayed

Due to concerns about gathering in groups, Reclaiming’s Campfire Chorus has put its new bilingual recording project on hold.

The new mini-album features four favorite ritual chants in English/Spanish versions.

  • Air I Am / Aire Soy
  • Tierra Mi Cuerpo / Earth My Body
  • She Changes Everything / Ella Cambia Todo
  • We Ae a Circle / Somos Un Circulo

You can hear very rough living-room demos from our first rehearsals here:

Drawing Down the Moon – Audio

Book-DrawingMoonAudio

Margot Adler’s classic survey of Neo-Paganism (1979, second edition 2006) is now available in audio format. The reading is crisp and a bit dry – like a radio reporter.

Audiobook – Drawing Down the Moon

Print format

Adler, a National Public Radio reporter, interviewed people from many traditions and tendencies to paint a picture of an emerging Pagan and feminist spirituality. The accounts and interviews are informal and easy to skim.

Originally published on the same date as Starhawk’s Spiral Dance (Samhain 1979), Adler’s book serves as a sort of backstory to groups like Reclaiming, Spark, CAYA, and other millennial communities.
