Claire "Chuck" Bohman, Reclaiming Priestess

M.Div. Student, Pacific School of Religion

Known by many in the Pagan world as “Chuck”, Claire is an energetic herbalist and practices in the Bay Area.  She became involved with a local Unitarian Universalist Pagan community as a child and considers herself a “second generation” pagan.  She is a priestess in Reclaiming and has helped to facilitate Free Cascadia Witchcamp for over 7 years.  She's also involved with Radical Faerie circles and the Naraya: A Dance for All People.  Before studies at PSR, Claire worked professionally as a union organizer and faith based community organizer.  Her spiritual practice has played a critical role in her activism, and she is deeply committed to the work of justice with roots in pagan practice.  Her work as a faith based organizer in Judeo-Christian settings has led questions of the theological grounding for earth based spiritual activism.  She is passionate about indigenous struggles for liberation and self determination and is committed to building networks of solidarity among non-native Pagans and First Nations people.  She is a Deans Scholar at PSR and active in local community justice struggles.  She blogs at and has been a guest blogger at Tikkun and AlterNet.
