After many years of being a more casual affair, in 2014 a proposal for a formal Ritual Planning Cell was made at the summer community meeting. In this initial year, with three members, the cell planned three rituals. In 2015, the cell added a member and planned six rituals. During this year, the cell also inaugurated the use of a year-long ritual arc, with a series of six rituals exploring the Pentacle of Life. In 2016, the cell had nine members and planned seven rituals during a nine-month working with the story of Thomas the Rhymer and the Faerie Queen. In 2017, the cell is planning a year of rituals around the theme of the Fool's Journey. You can read all about our past rituals at this link.
How to join the Ritual Planning Cell
Membership for the Ritual Planning Cell opens each summer between the Beltane and Lammas rituals. During that time, a public call for members is made with instructions on how to apply. Applicants for the RPC should be active members of our local Baltimore Reclaiming community who have taken Elements of Magic, or another Reclaiming core class. Be sure to be signed up for our Yahoo Group or a member of our Facebook Community group in order to be informed when the Ritual Planning Cell is open to new members.
