Registration for Redwood Magic 2020 is on hold as we wait to see whether an in-person gathering will be possible in August 2020. We will make a decision around Beltane.
If we cannot meet in person, we plan to offer online circles such as rituals, workshops, online games, and even a talent show!
Come back for updates, or email us to join our googlegroup.
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!
