Please note that the Gathering has moved to the
group campground at Jim Charles Point.
If you are going through the trouble of coming to
the Gathering, we strongly urge you to partake in all ceremonies. Also,
everyone is encouraged to help out with the little things that need to
be done to make the Gathering a success, such as cooking and tidying the
covered shelter area. In particular, we urge you to take a turn as
keeper of the Sacred Fire. We will help to fill you in on what your
responsibilities are, and you will find that it is a wonderful
experience. Overall, the Gathering has always depended on the same
teamwork that allowed our ancestors to survive and thrive.
Part of the teamwork also consists of helping out
with kitchen chores. While we don't really like it, in order to avoid
having too few people doing dishes, we have decided to use disposable dishes. We ask everyone
to wash their own implements, rather than leave them for
someone else. Please remember, NOBODY at this Gathering is staff, and
nobody is paid for the work that they do... please pitch in and take
care of your own dishes and such.
you are bringing children along, please remember that the evening
Talking Circles will be for adults, as these sometimes can become
intense and children should not be subjected to some of the things
Due to some unfortunate incidents in the past, we
must insist that family pets be left at home. This of course does not
include service animals, who are always welcome here.
