The Rainbow Family of Living Light
is a 30+ year old loosely associated group of folks from around the world
who get together each year to celebrate the earth and the joy of each other.
The Family is made up of several tribes from various bio-regions around
the world who get together from time to time to celebrate. Each
year from July
1st to July 7 the individual tribes come together for the National
Of the Tribes which is held somewhere in the United States in a
different location each year. There
we hold a week long prayer for world peace. The Gathering is a huge
for anything "alternative" one might be interested in. For a week or
celebrate, teach, cook together in communal kitchens, play music and
more. The gatherings
are free, non comercial and open to everyone. Everyone is Rainbow and
welcome to come. I have
been attending gatherings for over 10 years now. They are a prime
for me, you could say it's my spiritual calling, my religion. I find
the Rainbow to be my spirital rejunivation each year. There is so much
power in being with close friends, cooking with them, haning out late
at the fire and listening to great music, and putting on a gathering
with friends for 15-25,000 people. I put allot of energy into
gatherings each year, and it turn it gives me back much.
The beauty of Rainbow is the more you put in the more you get out and
anything can happen, if you want to "focalize" it.
This can create a magic like nothing else can.
Those who know me from the gatherings know that I have been involved in many aspecects
of gatherings. Lately I have been helping to provide clean water
for gathers. I have also been involved in recording the music and the magic of the campfires
as well as working with CALM , The
Center for Alternitive Medicine (our Emergencey Medical Folks) as well as
with Shante Sena, which is the Rainbow Peace
Keepers. My main involvement with Shante Sena is with the communications
and Radios and playing with solar power. I also enjoy spending time
cooking in the kitchens, catching or teaching the ocasional workshop as well as listening to the amazing music that happens

Here in North Carolina, where I live, our local family is called Katuah. It consists of folks from North and South Carolina, Georgia and Eastern Tennesee. Katuah currently has two councils, Spring Solstice and Thanksgiving. We have one "official" Summer Solstice gathering but are also have a few others from time to time (in 2004 we had two more). We also have a publication called HO!. This is an excelent way to keep informed about what is happening in Katuah land.

There are tons of other individual and regional Rainbow sites.
