Greetings family. ♥ .It is time now to gather and unite, to prepare ourselves for the dawn of the new age by healing our hearts and remembering how to be the ascended masters of light that we are. We are currently gathering in the tablelands area, 30km west of ravenshoe on private property (1oo square kms). As we have had no luck with communication with aneira for the rainbow website, i will have to post directions here. This gathering has already started, with the seed camp starting two days ago. We will need any supplies felt necessary including tools, buckets, tarps, ropes, food etc. Any items we can borrow and then properly returned would be even better. THIS GATHERING IS A HEALING GATHERING, so plea
se leave your addictive substances at home. 
We will also ONLY be gathering for three weeks after the seed camp, to allow family to move in directions called to be a part of the alignment for the solar eclipse, as the gathering site is not in alignment, and many feel called to some of the events happening further north. Therefore we will be in pack down right after full moon, to leave the site one week after. 

The directions are: from ravenshoe, turn just before the bp onto tully falls road from the kennedy hwy. then take first right (400m) onto wooroora rd. Follow this road all the way! It will turn into dirt after about 10km. When u reach a fork in the road, take the right. There should be a sign saying GLEN GORDON. This is the property. Then its about 8km down the road on the left. Look for signs

Looking forward to connecting and sharing with all of you. 

What Happens at Rainbow Gatherings

There are as many definitions of Rainbow Gatherings as there are people who’ve been to one! However, a Rainbow Gathering is essentially a temporary intentional community, an experiment in communal living. We all work together as a collective to make the gathering run smoothly, sharing our knowledge, skills and joy together. Recently, gatherings in Australia last for about a month, with set-up (called Seed Camp) starting about a week earlier, and pack down / clean up for a week after the official end date. The peak of the gathering is the Full Moon.

Besides the work that goes on to help the gathering happen, there’s also lots of acoustic music, drumming, dancing, workshops, council circles, sister circles, brother circles, gender circles, people hanging out, people enjoying nature, people meditating, chanting, and praying, people talking politics, people talking spiritual and personal growth, people visioning the future, people doing bodywork and other healing work.

We have a tribal anarchy where we take care of each other, because we recognise that we are all One. The Gathering works because each of us takes the responsibility for doing what needs to be done, and for teaching others what we know.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Rainbow Gatherings are temporary intentional communities, typically held in outdoor settings, and espousing and practising ideals of peace, love, harmony, freedom and community, as a consciously expressed alternative to mainstream popular culture, consumerism, capitalism and mass media.

Rainbow Gatherings and the Rainbow Family of Living Light (usually abbreviated to “Rainbow Family”) are an expression of a Utopian impulse, combined with bohemianism, free thought and hippie culture, with roots clearly traceable to the 1960s counter culture.

Aside from taking up collections (the “Magic Hat” in Rainbow parlance) for essential items purchased from the local community, there is little or no exchange of currency internally at a Gathering.

Talking circles are also a feature of rainbow gatherings. Each participant in the circle talks in turn while all others present listen in silence. A stick or feather is passed from person to person around the circle to mark his role as the speaker. If one doesn’t wish to speak, s/he may hold or pass the stick in silence
