DIVINE ALIGNMENT (STUDY+PRACTICE CIRCLE)
CITY: Cleveland Area
TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Omnistic
CONTACT NAME: Kristofer
Study and Practice Circle is a developing community for the newest of practitioners, as well as seasoned individuals. We do not discriminate against sex, race, gender, or individual beliefs and practices. We encourage our members to study various traditions and practices to establish a craft that best fits their needs. Disrespect of any other member will result in banishment from the circle. As the circle is still developing, we plan to hold bi-monthly Esbats in addition to classes and workshops. Our circle will also have the capacity to develop a separate coven entity for select members who show their eagerness to explore the craft. Kristofer Calhoun is the creator of this study circle. He has been practicing since the age of 9 years old and is now 20. He has background knowledge pertaining to crystal magick, herbalism, various methods of divination, practices from various spiritual traditions, deities from multiple pantheons, practical magick, as well as magick philosophy and years of spell and ritual experience. Members are encouraged to know the basics and pass an entry quiz to be a verified member of the circle. (Don’t stress if you’re just starting, we will provide resources to study!) Feel free to reach me on gmail email@example.com. Be sure to include your name, location, age, time of experience, and what you wish to obtain by joining the circle. Members must be 18+ or parental consent must be obtained to verify your membership.
OHIO RECLAIMING WITCHCRAFT
TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft
CONTACT NAME: Ember
WEBSITE: OHIO RECLAIMING WITCHCRAFT
Ohio Reclaiming Witchcraft is a community-in-progress, building Reclaiming-based community from the ground up. We are based in the Cleveland area, but there is currently no active Reclaiming Tradition community anywhere in Ohio, so we hope to serve as a common space for all Ohioans and nearby neighbors who are interested in Reclaiming Tradition. Then, as we learn and grow together, perhaps more local groups will form in other areas throughout the state, and we can all remain connected and visit each other's groups and help one another grow. Our closest active Reclaiming community is in Pennsylvania, and we also have connections to other Reclaiming communities and teachers worldwide.
We plan to offer classes, workshops, rituals and other events, in the future. Right now there are just very few of us in the same physical area so we do not currently have an ongoing schedule of offerings, but get in touch with us and you can be part of all that and keep informed! When we know who is nearby and interested, we'll start planning things for us.
You can read more about the Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft at https://reclaiming.org/ and of particular interest will be the Principles of Unity, which describe how the tradition approaches community, and our overall values as a global tradition: https://reclaiming.org/principles-of-unity/
Reclaiming has been described in many ways -- non-hierarchical, communal, ecstatic, anarchist, eco-feminist, social justice oriented, activist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, queer-affirming, trans-inclusive, Witchcraft. If you've heard of Starhawk and the book "The Spiral Dance", then you've heard a little bit about Reclaiming, and it's only grown and evolved over the decades since! It is a living tradition. Feel free to contact us through our blog to learn more and chat with us about it, in addition to checking out the Reclaiming website linked above.
We are committed to intersectionality in our Witchcraft. As the Principles of Unity state: "We work for all forms of justice: environmental, social, political, racial, gender and economic. Our feminism includes a radical analysis of power, seeing all systems of oppression as interrelated, rooted in structures of domination and control. We welcome all genders, all gender histories, all races, all ages and sexual orientations and all those differences of life situation, background, and ability that increase our diversity."
