Religion and Healing in America

The contemporary religion of witchcraft features a lively and dynamic ritual repertoire centered on nature. Participants in witchcraft rituals acknowledge the turning wheel of the seasons of the year and the seasons of their own lives. Contemporary witchcraft encompasses numerous formal and informal groups. One of the best known, the Reclaiming Tradition, is a US-based international tradition focusing on the Goddess in Her multiple forms. This tradition includes both women and men, connects spirituality and politics, and focuses on healing the culture and the earth. Reclaiming holds annual camps across the country where witches come together for training and for collective ritual. Healing is often a focus of the witch camp's large rituals, as well as being the focus of much ritual activity outside of the camp setting. Many witches see healing as creating connections and connections as healing.
