The RAINBOW healing retreat in BIELLA Alps calls us to come together in love and to purify ourselves, to exchange spiritual knowledge, to dance play and sing, to experience freedom from addiction, to share .The Rainbow is calling every person to celebrate life in nature,respecting it carefully. The gathering is a light experiment that wants to bring more awareness to everyone.
A healing rainbow has the same rules like a rainbow gathering (keep reading…) plus some more rules : substances that are easily addictive are forbidden (like sugar, coffe, tobacco, every kind of drugs, marijuana, white flour etc) .
If you want to try this experience you are welcome. Please don’t bring these substances because it can be a problem for people that want to try to stop with tobacco or something else and want to be in a place without temptation. Please, respect our common vision !!!!
Rainbow is a free gathering in nature, where we stay in a simple way, WITHOUT TECNOLOGY and WITHOUT TECNIOLOGICAL DEVICES. Food is Vegan. Raw for lunch, for dinner also cooked (if you have children you can use the kitchen to cook also during the day) . We cook all together in shift (volontary) and we eat all together around the Sacred fire. In that fire we only use Wood (dry wood that we collect around) . Into the sacred space around the fire we enter only without shoes.
We pay so much attention to our fire because it’s sacred and because we keep the ash as clean as possible, for people that collect ash in the morning to clean themselves. When food is almost ready a call from the kitchen starts, that goes around in a chain. Before eating all together in a circle, we sing songs of rainbow tradition, and we do some OM. Then some volunteers serve the food. This moment of sharing is a very important moment, also because after meals there are annuncements for all the family about workshop, circle, passages, and all is about the community.
At Rainbow gatherings money exchanges are banned, expect at the Magic hat moment, after food, when the magic hat is going around together with music and dance for collect kisses and free conscious offers. Conscious offers means that everyone’s is responsible, knowing how much he/she can really give. And who has the possibility can maybe give more for who can not.
At Rainbows there is always something to do!! Wood to be collected, water to bring to the kitchen, food missions, meals to be cooked …
There are not real organizers and leaders, we all are responsible and creators of the gathering, we all cooperate, even a minimum, so we don’t leave the burden on the shoulders of few people. Rainbow life is not so comfortable: we wash in the cold river without soap in order to avoid pollution, ours toilet is a hole in the ground (that we cover whit ash and earth), we sleep in tents or open air. And all these simple acts reconnected us with nature and our ancestors.
Despite we don’t use soaps (exeptions are made for 100% natural soaps like saponiferous clay etc but always far from rivers or sources) but only ash and vinegar, personal hygiene is really important for health of everybody, and also some attentions like drink only from your own cup, never make shit pit next to rivers or watersources. Everyone is invited to have special care for personal hygiene, especially the one that are volontary in the kitchen and who serve food. All people that are dealing with common food must have very clean hands, even under the nails.
Alcool is also forbidden, in order to find new creative healthy way to have fun, especially acoustic music makes our nights around the fire. If you have knowledge or skills about anything and you want to share it you can bring the necessary for running a workshop. During the day there may be all kind of workshops, like music , healing, holistic and meditation technics etc etc , and all of them are free.
We are sorry for dogs, but for many reasonable reason we must ask to avoid bringing them.
