Aspecting and Anchoring

An RQ Theme Section

Aspecting - a magical practice in which a priestess or priest channels the presence of a deity or quality.

"Aspecting," says Reclaiming teacher Sage, "is a technique which allows participants to experience the presence of a quality, being or deity in an embodied, physically manifest way."

In this web-feature, built around articles that appeared in RQ#86, we feature articles on different facets of these topics, as well as several short pieces focusing on a particularly magical experience, ranging from hearing the music of buildings to hearing the voice of a very worried police officer.

One article discusses anchoring (also known as deep witnessing), a related but distinct practice.
