A group of people who gather together regularly - usually once a year - to live
in harmony with
and nature. Money and alcohol are not allowed, but sharing and swapping are encouraged. It's basically a chance to step out of the commercial, high-speed world
(or "Babylon" as it's been termed) and live
simply and sweetly out in the woods with
people who want peace and prioritise ecological issues.
The biggest Rainbow
Gathering is in America, held annually in one of the national forests. The website is www.welcomehome.org and you can find
lots of info about hows, whens, wheres
And to reiterate: welcome home!
When the earth
is ravaged and the animals
are dying, a new tribe of people shall
come unto the earth
colors, classes, creeds, and who by their actions and deeds shall
make the earth
green again. They will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow.
- Old Native
And there you have
the point of a rainbow gathering!
