The Baltimore Reclaiming Teaching Cell is a group of local Reclaiming teachers serving the community and the greater Reclaiming web. We provide classes and intensives in the Reclaiming tradition (collaborative, co-taught, non-hierarchical) that support our growing community. We provide mentoring and training and seek to deepen our skills as teachers.
The Baltimore Reclaiming Teaching Cell (BRTC) is committed to creating a teaching culture that meets regularly to develop teachers, receive input from community, and organize classes.
One of the goals of the BRTC is to provide mentorship to those interested in becoming student teachers in the Reclaiming tradition. If you are curious about becoming a student teacher, please consider the following recommendations which were compiled by the CRAFT cell:
Take as many classes and intensives in the Reclaiming tradition as you can.
Attend Reclaiming witchcamps, if you are able.
Build your local community.
Deepen your own daily practices.
Create rituals with others. When in circle, notice and attend to the energy of the whole group.
Deepen your priestessing skills in as many ways as you can.
Learn about other pagan and spiritual traditions.
Become known in your own pagan community, so your work and energy are familiar to others. If you have no local community, work to create one.
The BRTC is currently in the process of developing a process for potential student teachers to become identified and brought into a mentorship process. Stay tuned!
During the summer 2016 meeting the Baltimore Reclaiming community decided to form a Teaching Cell. Over the next several months interested members of our community (including teachers and those who are not teaching) met several times as a working group to discuss issues such as structure, membership, and criteria for teachers. In the spring of 2017 the cell was formally begun after the group came to consensus on the cell's intention, purpose, and criteria for membership.
Current Teaching Cell
The current members of the Teaching Cell are Marcos, Ayla, Sylvan, Jessica, and Amanda. If you are interested in joining this cell and believe you meet the criteria, please be in touch.
