We gather for peace and to exercise our resolve to build strong community through consensual manners proving time and time again that we will remain family united through all times.
The Prayer for World Peace has managed to happen every year since 1972 without interruption despite many hurdles and is the main focus of thje Rainbow Family Gatherings. This prayer starts on the morning of the fourth of July in a meditative hush of silence until noon when the air fills with loud rejoicing, affirmations of love echoing across the meadow and many hugs being shared. Our children, beacons of the future are paraded into to the circle and share in the jubilation. A very proud part of the celebration and speaks to our hope in the future so that peace may prevail. There is also a prayers to honor all those who have gone on to greater realms, they are here with us in our hearts and will forever remain part of our family celebrations and deep in our prayers.

Welcome Home , Lovin you.
With deep heartfelt plea to everyone who is praying for peace on July 4th, please add their prayers for John Buffalo. He has been in the ICU for all but 6 or 7 days of the last 75 days. He has done everything in his power for this family and I am begging this family to invoke every metaphysical, prayer, loving energy thing we collectively know how to do so that he gets off this ventilator and makes it home. I’ll be oming from home or maybe the hospital with John Buffalo – /// Let’s manifest some healing love!
|Stage I Fire Restrictions Carson National Forest |
The purpose of this Order is to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires during periods of high fire danger and severe fire weather conditions. Forest Service does have exemptions if approved.
Site dynamics, weather conditions, suppression gear, technologies, group dedication and rapport with the Forest Service will dictate the inherent opportunities. Some locations still have snow, mud and moist earth conditions that may be exceptional and conducive to a well lite gathering. LIFTED 6/30/2021
|Rain in the forecast next ten days! Some areas have also received a blessing of rain recently. Daytime temperatures are around 80 degrees and night time temperatures around 50 degrees. Sudden showers, wind storms, hail and lightning can be dangerous or just uncomfortable without proper gear and shelter. Traps are easy solutions to many weather issues so having several can be a blessing. Proper clothes are a survival must, bring all season attire for safety and comfort. Keep your items and bedding dry, by thinking ahead. Being prepared is a mantra.|
|Bus Village / Handi-Capable Camp|
Both are as near to the Welcome Home as possible and there may be additional camps and parking set up later in the week. Still in seed camp and working with the Forest Service on parking logistics as well as other considerations. Still early in the process.
The Forest Service has closed a portion of the road going into the gathering site as well as some unsafe spots along the road and have also staked out a parking area for emergency vehicles, LEO’s, incident command, fire service – other authorized vehicles. The locations are clearly marked and should be avoided under penalty of fine and removal.
|The 2021 Annual Rainbow Family Gathering is in the Carson National Forest and the site has one river, two creeks, nine springs, melting snow and is very lush and green. Lots of shade, trees, rocks, meadows and plenty of room for dispersed camping. A very beautiful site that is getting daily rain fall.||A lot of folks are hitch hiking in from all major cities as usual. Help family out by sharing the ride if at all possible. If you can not offer a ride please at least stop and make sure everyone has water. It is hot out there so show some love. Currently (5/25/2021) there are about 800 people on site.|
|The sacred herb, no matter how legal it is in any state and whether or not you have a legal right to posses and use such gifts, marijuana is still illegal on the federal level and in the National Forests. Be extra careful going into and out of the gatherings, LEO’s are vicious and are filling quotas. Read: Rap 420|
|The road into the gathering site is La Junta Road and also Forest Road 76. It is a hard packed gravel road that is wide enough for two vehicles and has a few precarious locations. There a few potholes, washboards, bumps and uneven grades. Use caution, watch your speed, look out for turns and oncoming traffic. Law enforcement are on maneuvers patrolling. Be legal and ready for interaction, have your papers available and know your rights. You do not have to consent to searches, volunteer non pertinent information or assist them in any investigations. Be cordial, polite and provide only the things required under the law.||Faith that the family can gather and ignite their dreams under all odds is good virtue and speaks well to our moral nature of support for each other. No doubt there is a strong will to circle, send out good will and a prayer for world peace regardless of obstacles.|
|Police do not have the right to search your vehicle without probable cause. Stereotyping is not a probable cause. Keep your cameras on. Ask questions. Deny searches. They are not allowed to have their dogs sniff your vehicle without probable cause. Remember- remove all obstructions from your vehicle windows. Stuff on the dashboard, anything hanging from rear view mirror. Have a safe trip.||Osha Root. This may be one of the most loved and adored medicinal plants by the locals of New Mexico. Used to bring oxygen into the body which increases endurance, helps altitude sickness, uplifts the mind and helps the lungs. Osha is most commonly used to clear congestion of the lungs and during times of coughs or colds. Lowers fever, helps toothache, stimulates digestion. Its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory.|
|Just a reminder to all our beautiful wonderful family that we need to take responsibility for feeding and healing each other. Going to local food banks in the gathering area isn’t cool. We generally gather in rural areas and with current economic hardships, the people who live in the local communities may be struggling to provide care of their families and guests. They didn’t invite us to come so we have to be extra considerate guests. We have plenty of wealth in our own family that we need to be sharing with each other. Our vision of a co-operative future needs to be one in which we create our own resources, not siphon resources from other people. Be good neighbors.||Rainbow Family Memorial|
This group was started to memorialize our Family who are no longer with us physically.
Please invite everyone you know who misses someone who has passed. I’ll be adding Admins asap.
This is all about love and nothing negative will be tolerated. https://www.facebook.com/groups/RainbowRIP

We are the only species that is destroying the source of life, meaning Mother Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land. Using chemicals and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage, as Mother Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war. In our prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either unite spiritually as a global nation, or be faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives’ eyes.

Come be part of the One Prayer – We Love You!
