Reclaiming is a tradition of witchcraft that began in the 1980s in Northern California and by the year 2000 had adherents throughout North America and Western Europe. It is a non-profit religious organization based in San Francisco with tax-exempt status under federal and state law.

img_3128Reclaiming is a community of women and men working to unify spirit and politics. Our vision is rooted in the religion and magic of the Goddess – the Immanent Life Force. We see our work as teaching and making magic – the art of empowering ourselves and each other. In our classes, workshops and 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 to bring to birth a vision of a new culture.

We abide by the Principles of Unity, the Wiccan Rede and we use a Consensus Process and Model of Decision Making in our work. Our sacred texts include the Charge of the Goddess, the God and the Dark Goddess.
