THE GATHERING OF THE TRIBES
A "RAINBOW GATHERING" is an occasion to meet and share with your sisters and brothers from different ethnicities, origins, countries, cultures, races and convictions.
Such a meting takes place somewhere in nature, in full harmony with it.
There are NO LEADERS - each who takes part, actively takes his or her responsibility: if possible, in a harmonious, energetically fluent way.
Each who would like to share his or her talents, knowledge, visions and experience can offer a workshop to do so. In a rainbow gathering, it's essential to try to live together in a non-commercial way, while respecting each others differences, backgrounds and realities - not any religious or political group is to monopolize the gathering.
In other words: all colors of the rainbow are welcome - none of them dominates the other ones. The rainbow family has no chiefs. All decisions are being made in councils. Everyone may SPEAK HOLDING THE TALKING STICK IN A TALKING CIRCLE, whenever a common decision needs to be taken. Everyone shares the responsibility to make the family healthy and strong. There are no "laws" decided by majority; there are decisions and principles agreed by consensus. For this CONSENSUS, there is deep respect.
We do not buy or sell to one another at a gathering. For the food and other needs the "MAGIC HAT" goes round the food circle twice a day: at such moments, each donates what he or she can afford. Food is prepared in communal kitchens and served for everyone in this huge food circle. Share your energy in whatever way(s) you feel like: helping in the kitchen, giving workshops, playing music-, visiting a healing circle, playing with children.
We do not publish the exact location oh the web.
