What is Dandelion?
Dandelion is a gathering of the tribes within the Reclaiming tradition. Occurring every two years, Dandelion is an open-format event that has been hosted in the Southwest, the Northeast, the Bay Area, and now the Midwest. It’s a place for Reclaiming-identified witches to come together, and hang out, share ideas, and celebrate life. It is a magical cauldron of limitless possibility which is shaped in the moment by the needs and desires of those who are present. It is four days of creating the world in which we wish to live.
What happens at Dandelion?
The programming of Dandelion comes together from you, the community of participants. At the Dandelion Gatherings in the past, there have been rituals, workshops, talent shows, and time to connect together as a community. What would you like to see at the next Dandelion Gathering? Are there workshops or rituals you’d like to offer, or like to request that someone facilitate? Also, the Dandelion Gathering hosts the BIRCH Meeting.
What is BIRCH?
The Broad Inter-Reclaiming Council Hub is a meeting that takes place during Dandelion and is a format to support many voices from across the Reclaiming tradition to be heard together. The intention of this assembly is to deal with wider issues in the Reclaiming tradition, nurture seeds of connection, communication, facilitate resource-sharing and skill building, and in general offer a way for Reclaiming practitioners to come together and grow our community. The meeting is open to any Reclaiming-identified individual or group.
What is Diana’s Grove like?
Diana’s Grove retreat center has been the host to the Midwest Witch Camp for many years. It is 142 acres of lush Ozark woodland with cabins, camping, a labyrinth, ritual areas, a creek, a hot tub, and amazing food.
