In other years, Dia de los Muertos in San Francisco would mean a November 2nd community celebration honoring the dead, with altars in a local park and a candlelight procession through the streets of the Mission District.
In the face of the Covid pandemic, the Marigold Project has moved the 2020 commemoration online, with beautiful elemental altars created by local artists.

The first book to provide Reclaiming 101, Reclaiming Witchcraft discusses the current state of Reclaiming, its practices and the variety of cultures around the world.
Reclaiming Witchcraft is designed to help the reader better understand the basic structure of the Reclaiming tradition, as well as discover how it has changed since its initial formation in San Francisco and subsequent journey out to the reaches of Canada, Australia, and Europe.
From the basic tenets of what makes a Reclaiming Witch, to how rituals are performed, how lessons are passed on, and how magick is made around the world, Reclaiming Witchcraft seeks to welcome those who might be interested in learning more, while also directing them to resources and paths that can help facilitate their journey.
Irisanya is a priestess and teacher in the Reclaiming tradition, and has taught classes and camps around the world, including the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. She was initiated into the tradition in 2014.
Dear Reclaiming Community,
Due to the pandemic, the 41st Annual Spiral Dance ritual will be held online on Halloween, Saturday, October 31st, 2020.
We hope you will join us on this blue moon, a mere three days before the election.
We in the Spiral Dance Cell decided to act with an abundance of caution to protect our Pagan community. We will be reaching out very soon with more information as to how you may participate in this life-changing magical working.
Yours in Service,
The Spiral Dance Organizing Cell

Ritual planners teach the steps of the traditional maypole dance, but it quickly devolves into a do-as-thou-wilt celebration. The dance is always popular with kids!
