Spiral Dance 2020 Moves Online

SrD08-Rauner-182-Spiral

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

Our Magical Ancestors – an essay

Luke Hauser’s new essay on alternative history – free download or read online

Who are these people who call themselves Pagans, Witches, and workers of magic? Where did they come from?

Join Luke Hauser for an illustrated, occasionally tongue-in-cheek journey through our magical lineages, from ancient Mesopotamia to Gardner, Valiente, and the Wiccan Revival of modern days.

Think of this as a pleasant excursion, not a treadmill.

Read what calls to you. Skip around as you wish. Feel free to ignore entire sections.

Just know that when you reach the Isle of Apples, you may be tested on this material.
