First and foremost we send out our deepest wishes that you are all as healthy and safe as you can be.
There is much challenge and uncertainty in the world. At the same time, we are uplifted by the ways that community members have stepped up to offer many opportunities to connect and feel supported. Many thanks to Captain for creating the Zoom link for others to use, and more thanks to each person who has brought forward an offering.
While all these great initiatives have been happening, the BCWC Org has had to make a couple of important – and difficult – decisions… Our hearts were heavy as we heard that large gatherings have been banned through the summer by British Columbia public health officer.
As a result, there will be no in-person BC Witchcamp 2020.
We have needed time to feel into our own disappointment and grief. Like many of you, camp is a highlight of our year. So here’s our plan, created in collaboration with the teaching team.
We are holding the 2020 story and intention as a 2-year spell with space for our community to invent together. This is a new time and we will make new magic. We have invited the teaching team to continue with us in 2021 and they are currently discussing offerings that they will make as part of this long spell, with and for the community. Our intention for this 2-year spell remains the same and yet feels even more relevant:
Guided by lineage, we journey through Baba Yaga’s dark forest to learn world-changing magic. We carry forth the witch’s healing flame.
It feels like the whole world is making this journey and we are inspired to work this magic with you… in Zoom. In email. Over the phone. As we journey through the dark forest, as we sort the seeds of the future in Baba Yaga’s magical house. knowledge this land that we come together on is unceded Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Territory. We were honoured in 2017 to receive a formal welcome from a member of the Skwxwú7mesh People at camp, and are committed to developing this relationship with the Skwxwú7mesh People.
