Ki a koha te maramatanga

Ma te kaha e whakau

foodcircle04.jpgWhat is a rainbow gathering?

Rainbow gatherings have been held all over the world since 1972; celebrating Sustainable Peaceful Living, Sharing and Respect for Mother Earth & our fellow creatures. Ancient & indigenous peoples see the Rainbow as a sign of Hope and Peace. The now-age movement see & feel the Rainbow energy as an Inspirational source of Healing for all people and for the planet.

If you can offer other whanau a lift to a gathering or if you need one, you can join and send an email to the noospheric talking circle to focalise ride-sharing.

Some wisdom to make the gathering flow harmoniously

Circles are an old tradition. Everything is provided for the circle by the circle. There are NO leaders. Share your energy in whichever way you feel. We honour the divine in everyone & trust spirit to guide each of us to give our energy in a perfect way. We learn the art of spontaneously providing our communal and personal needs. We come together morning & evening for family circles to eat and talk. A talking stick is passed around to share news and discuss issues & feelings. All decisions are made by consensus.


Sacred Fire in the centre of the main circle represents our spirit and is kept burning throughout. Please bring wood & be a part of this. No rubbish is burned here (that includes food scraps and cigarette butts). It is the heart of the gathering.


Magik Hat receives koha that provides food & supplies while we gather. As the gathering is totally NON-COMMERCIAL there is no fee for entry, camping, workshops or food. Everything is shared freely from the heart. Vegan food is prepared in the communal kitchen & served 2x day After eating the magik hat is passed around the circle for contributions to continued abundance.


Talking Stick empowers individuals to speak and be heard. It is passed around the circle or left in the centre for those having something to share. Please respect the person holding the stick & don't interrupt. This enables us to share our dreams, views and needs; to listen and learn from each other in a safe and sacred space.


Workshops are how we share our skills... freely, informally & friendly. You can have a workshop on anything, anytime...


Welcome Centre is the 1st stop, sharing info, chai, and a bed for late arrivals. Cars are parked some distance from the gathering and we walk in. There are always helping hands for heavy loads and families - maybe even a wheelbarrow?

Rainbow gatherings honour the living earth as our mother.
We tread lightly on Papatuanuku - with care and respect for ALL living beings.
We cut no living trees.
We celebrate diversity with tolerance + acceptance,
knowing we are all really part of the ONE.

 Children are welcome. We create a kidspace 4 magikal play. Please respect children as they are creating our future NOW.


What to Bring: Openness, Compassion & All Your Love!
Also camp gear, musical instruments, paints & crafts to share, candles and lamps, your own bowl and spoon (& one to share).


COMMUNAL NEEDS are: tarps, ropes, hessian, big cooking pots & kitchen gear, saws, picks, spades, shovels, food (organic preferred), tipis, yurts, and treats.

What to Leave Behind: Negativity and a Babylon attitude!
Drugs - including alcohol. By loving each other we get high on spirit. Herbs and herbal preps are welcome as a sacred gift from the mother.
Pets - leave 'em in good care at home. This avoids hygiene issues, dog fights and animals escaping to harm native wildlife or children.
Electronika - we gather in nature in simplicity, so please leave battery operated stuff, cell phones, cameras, iPods, stereos, and torches in the carpark.
Disposables - what we carry in we carry out. We leave the gathering site as beautiful as we found it. Please leave plastic and other potential junk behind.
