Luke Hauser’s new essay on alternative history – free download or read online
Who are these people who call themselves Pagans, Witches, and workers of magic? Where did they come from?
Join Luke Hauser for an illustrated, occasionally tongue-in-cheek journey through our magical lineages, from ancient Mesopotamia to Gardner, Valiente, and the Wiccan Revival of modern days.
Think of this as a pleasant excursion, not a treadmill.
Read what calls to you. Skip around as you wish. Feel free to ignore entire sections.
Just know that when you reach the Isle of Apples, you may be tested on this material.
“Erudite, good-humoured, generous, with that open-minded readiness to recognise merit in many different sources of inspiration that is one of the best features of the Reclaiming tradition.”
– Ronald Hutton, Professor of History, University of Bristol
“Presents an enormous amount of material in a very attractive and readable way.”
– Michael D. Bailey, Department of History, Iowa State University / Associate Editor: Magic, Ritual, and Witchcraft

Here’s the updated version of our 2019 Spiral Dance music, including Suzanne Sterling & Skyclad’s Elements song.
The youtube version also features a short Place of Power meditation – we need a recording of an ancestor trance complete with a journey to the Isle of Apples!
Youtube also includes both spiral dance promo videos – very fun!

The Teen Earth Magic book, which gathers workings, interviews, photos, and more from the first ten years of Reclaiming’s youth camp, is now available! Proceeds benefit TEM.
Teen Earth Magic grew out of Reclaiming family camp organizing, and includes young people from Redwood Magic, Witchlets, and other camps.
The Teen Earth Magic Workbook – not for teens only! – focuses on empowerment, awareness, and action.
This unique and powerful tool, based on twelve years of rituals, classes, and grassroots activism at Reclaiming’s Teen Earth Magic camp, gathers 350 pages of Reclaiming-style magic plus 40 years of music and other resources – much of it free online.
Hundreds of ideas for teens, adults, teachers, and organizers – spellcrafting, divination, activism, pentacle magic, and much more.
Illustrated with dozens of photos from our California-based youth retreat, sibling camps Witchlets in the Woods and Redwood Magic Family Camp, and events such as the Spiral Dance and street activism, the book includes:
With a Foreword by Starhawk, whose Earth Activist Training courses helped inspire Teen Earth Magic.
