With Jarrah Staggard and Ravyn Stanfield
Our final path is revealed! This looks to be an exciting path. Ravyn Stanfield from the US has taught at Earthsong WitchCamp in Victoria several times and is a beloved part of our growing Australian Reclaiming community.
Enjoy the following song as you read the path description and dream of CloudCatcher..
A wild thing calls – the strange possibility of collaboration, of community.
The world around us is paved, concrete idols reaching high, fences and walls twisting about and within. In the land, a primal beat calls us to a different dance. The cracks in modern civilization are filled with the seeds of vines, cradling mysterious cultures of fermentation and change. It is time to transform the false narrative of the singular hero who can save the world. We are not in it alone. We have never been alone.
We each carry a primal need to connect with others, a primordial madness that calls us to commune. How do we live wild and feral, with ecstatic grace and deep devotion to this living planet? How do we dance in service of all that matters, while not trampling each other’s feet? How will we sustain relationships over time, even when we disagree? How do we grace the uncomfortable rituals of community?
This is a chance to explore that mad impulse of community, a primal irrational impulse to share in the risk of collaboration. This is a chance to dive into the collective shadow of humanity, to alchemize frightening impulses that live inside of each of us.
This path will explore how we can wield peace together powerfully; while tending compassionately to our diverse experiences and needs. We will create collective poetry and music, alliance and action. We will remember the ecstasy that calls us to connect, engaging embodied techniques and processes and practical strategies for collaborative leadership. We will apply magical skills, such as witnessing and tending others, maintaining our own self-awareness and gracing conflict.
This is a path for experienced campers and participants are requested to have taken Reclaiming Elements of magic before.
