I am very pleased with myself for attending the very first Australian Reclaiming Witchcamp in 2011. I went by myself, I didn't know anybody else, and I was delighted to find that I could slip easily through the looking-glass into conversations, activities, enchanted space. We came together as different generations of witches, different sexes, different walks of life -- public servants like me, teachers, nurses, circus performers, technicians, conservation lobbyists, farmers, film makers, community workers, pharmacists etc -- and wove a marvellous web.
The organisers: What commitment! What creativity! What competence!
The teachers: Such wisdom! Such expertise! Such versatility! Such sense of fun!
And the rituals, ah the rituals: So huge, so deep, so beautiful, so powerful, so altogether magic!
