Elements of Magic is a Reclaiming core class that explores the elemental Pentacle through a Reclaiming ritual structure. We will use art and ritual to discover and begin a personal transformative experience with tools often used in the Reclaiming tradition such as visualization, sensing energy movement, divination, music, trance, creating magical space, and ritual design. This class is experiential in nature.

I am a Reclaiming/Feri witch, a deathworker, a keeper of transitions, and artist. My rootwork, custom oil blends, and spellwork are based on American folk witchcraft traditions. The energy of ritual causes my soul to thrum. I play with divination tools, but my access mostly comes thru the ether via beings who are largely Unseen, in particular the Dead (who are quite chatty). I hold strong boundaries to enhance my and others’ work. I strive for healthy community. My superpower is direct speech delivered with kindness. I find Joy in the nooks and crannies of life (and death).

I am a Reclaiming Witch, artist, sex educator, and mother to wild and growing beings. My Work as a Priestess & Witch centers around the tactile experiences of embodied magic, art, and plants. My eclectic tastes run from throwing runes and pulling tarot cards to trance work and exercise. I am pulled to Reclaiming witchcraft through lived experiences and human-divine connections. I practice magic and art to come fully into oneness with my Godself; my work is like a volcano rising from the ocean floor, destroying and creating through beautiful lava flows and fermenting magma chambers. My magical superpower is childlike enthusiasm woven with my years of life experience. As a priestess my intention is to empower sojourners to be their own cauldron of transformation.
Pigeon is a birb who lives in the city of Pittsburgh with a cat named Soybean. They are a mystic, a ritualist, an anarchist, a witch, a kinkster, an artist, and a healer. The magic that they bring to ritual and community is a deep empathy, groundedness, and fluidity. They are drawn to Reclaiming because of the ecstatic nature of rituals speaks to their deep need for experience over observation.
Pigeon’s spiritual work is centered in reclaiming their Catholic upbringing through heresy, sacred sexuality, pleasure activism, art, and mutual aid. They use their knowledge and energy being an active member of the ritual planning team of Reclaiming Pittsburgh, a zinester and artist with Garlic Witch Zines, an activist, and a sex educator. In their spare time Pigeon likes to forage for mushrooms, identify plants, and visit old churches.
