Great Lakes Rainbow Family “Spring Council” on the Land and 4/20 regional Earth Day gathering !

Howdy Folks !

Our Great Lakes Rainbow Family has reached a consensus for our annual “Spring Council” again this year to be held on the Land near Perry, MI.

The dates are May 13th thru 15th at Dave & Nina’s located at:  4993 West Britton Rd Perry Michigan 48872

For those new to Rainbow, Spring Council is much like any other gathering with plenty of food, fun, music, old and new friends around the campfire, though at some time(s) during the weekend we’ll pass the feather in a circle to decide plans for the kitchen and trailer(s) for the coming year. Family Consensus is that the big annual Rainbow Gathering will be relatively nearby to Great Lakes Region in Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine, and Great Lakes Family needs to be ready. All are welcome in council, even first time gatherers. Plenty of informal discussions and also heartsong circles are likely as well. We are hoping to pass the magic hat this year to raise funds for our kind ride share of the Turtle Trailer to the gathering some time this June until possibly mid-July this year ! Vision council for manifesting consensus on the Land may happen from Friday thru Sunday this May.

This land is a sacred space so please honor this energy. The gathering ends on Sunday, so please respect the land and our hosts and don’t linger after that.

Bring food to share, though there is well water available on site. If you are staying overnight bring a tent, bedroll, plenty of blankets, and be especially well prepared for cold and snow/rain, after all it is Michigan.

A HO ! 1.2.3. .  .  .  .  WE LOVE YOU ! ! !

Let’s have a Great rainbow gathering this year ! Thank You to all of you who came out to support our Turtle Soup kitchen in 2015 , we manifested one of the largest rainbow gatherings in Michigan in over a decade last summer near Sleeping Bear !
