theres been alotta discussion lately (through private messages) about finding or organizing local family through potlucks drum circles and lightlines
so i thought it was a worthy subject for public discussion.
1st, try contacting the next nearest family
theres lists of potlucks and websites and lightlines on welcomehome.org
for international contacts try googling the counbtry with rainbow family or simular, or try the online rainbowguide (i think rainbowguide.info)
2nd if that fails, its most likely up to you to get people together, no matter where ya are theres family looking for you as desperately as yoiur looking for them.. so, options are, create a weebsite and list it on welcomehome or a lightline or a myspace/facebook local family network..(free and easy)
any of these options though will take a lil dedication and work, a few hours a weeek checking and responding to messages, approving freind requests and stuff like that. then all ya gotta do is announce a picnic drum event or potluck, hold a council and find a new focalizer (or 2-3 if they wanna share responcibility) if your not willing keep focalizing yourself.
if your 1st event only draws 4 people concider it a success
if your fairly ruralyou probably should hold events in the nearest city..in parks till you have enough folks to find indoor spots.
spring is the best time to start
This is a great post Soaring Eagle :) I just started A.R.T Arizona Rainbow Tribe on myspace with this very intention .....You are dead on on all points ..Im trying now with my focalizer for Northern AZ to connect with family here in phoenix ...Im hoping for about 5 people to show up to a potluck in the next couple of weeks and spread from there :) Thanx so much for the incite man cant wait to give you a hug at nationals this year !

Last spring started a garden on church property up the street. No fences, no poisons, no problems. Planted extra for the rabbits and gophers, coyotes even got some meals in. Learned many tricks and created new. Lots of good produce to share.See More
