The Reclaiming Pittsburgh ritual cell is currently accepting story/theme submissions for the 2019 ritual year!
Myths are stories that have never happened and yet, are always happening. They are tales that have a life and energy of their own. We feed their magical power by telling them over and over again. Myths appeal to us because we are able to relate to them: each initiation of a quest, every test of character, our hero’s journey speaks to our own challenges in life.
Reclaiming witches recognize a myth’s ability to inspire our actions and spark fresh insight. We honor and channel this energy by using it in our sacred rituals to create change in all of the worlds: seen and unseen. We believe that everyone has a right to be a part of this magic, which is why we are asking our local community to tell us which tales are Calling to them. Together, we carve our realities and shape history.
What is the magic that Pittsburgh needs in 2019? Will we invoke Loki‘s bravery and tell our leaders what we think of their actions in the Lokasenna? Is it time to do what we love and learn the true meaning of Sacrifice in The Red Shoes? Do we need to Reclaim Snow White’s body autonomy and make an example of that white knight by embracing consent culture? Only time, creativity and YOU will tell!
Submit your ideas, concepts and/or stories to us by October 14th. We can’t wait to weave a new world with you.
