Join In Ritual Planning!
Would you like to lend your magical skills and help shape North Bay public rituals? There are 3 ways to come deeper into the cauldron of delights: You can (1) join the planning cell, (2) Volunteer for a role in an upcoming ritual, or (3) ask us questions & give us feedback.
North Bay Reclaiming Planning Cell
Consisting of 5-7 community members just like you, the North Bay Reclaiming Planning Cell (RPC for short) gathers locally a few times a month. We employ a consensus-based process to create rituals for the wheel of the year.
RPC members have all attended a year of public rituals in North Bay Reclaiming, and taken Reclaiming Core Classes ( Elements of Magic and Iron Pentacle) as a prerequisite for planning in the Reclaiming style. We make a 3 year committment in order to hold the sanctity and creative container for planning joyfully and creating a strong community. Each member may also have a unique role in the Cell that helps the group function. We are like busy bees in a hive!
These unique roles allow us to attend to a variety of concerns one would never think about when planning for ritual, such as: accounting, paperwork, media, site location, coordinating volunteers, and staying connected to other groups in Reclaiming. We've witnessed how these skills have helped us to step up with even more strength in all parts of our life.
The RPC is an amazing, life-changing experience that strengthens skills in leadership, community building, deep listening, and connecting to the magick. We laugh together and grow, and hope that if you love North Bay Reclaiming as much as we do, you'll join us in co-creating fresh rituals in the years to come.
Volunteer For A Ritual Role
Have you been to at least 3 public rituals in North Bay Reclaiming? Or have you attended a Reclaiming Core Class where you've begun to experience ritual, and you're hungry for more? If you've been wondering how it would be to cast a circle, make an invocation, or help the setup and magic of our public rituals, please reach out and let us know! You can ask any RPC member at any ritual for more details on how to proceed, or you can contact our media person at the number below.
We are always, always open to creative ideas for rituals, whether you are a member of the planning group or not. If you have ideas to share, or you'd like to take a role in a future ritual, please feel free to reach out to one us.
Give Us Ideas & Feedback
We love it when community members reach out with their thoughts about past rituals, and what you'd love to see in the future. It may not seem like a big thing, but this is your community, and your input is a part of the magic. We look forward to hearing from you!
Together we build this community. If you like what you've read, or have questions, please contact RPC member Copper (marketing & media) via the Contact page. Please make sure to put "RECLAIMING INQUIRY" in your subject headline or your email may accidentally be filtered out. You can also reach Copper via text at 707-396-8514.
