Silent Prayer/Meditation for World Peace on July 4

Circle on July 4
Copied from Steven Hager's Blog
The silent prayer/meditation for world peace is the culmination of our attempts to create a peaceful and harmonious gathering. Starting as the sun rises on the morning of July 4th, the gathering will become silent. As people wake up and get ready for their day, most people respect the silence. As people are so inclined they head to main meadow to pray for world peace, do yoga for world peace, meditate for world peace and all sorts of other mellow and silent manifestations of creating the energy of world peace and the healing of the planet. .

We hold this peace in preparation for the arrival of our children. The children's parade (meet at Kid Village a few hours before noon if you have kids and want them in the parade) will come into the center of the circle. Please hold the silence until all the children (even the ones at the end of the parade) have made it into the center of the circle. Our children our are future and deserve our respect. Oming can start when most of the children are in the circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WIDELY.

At some point before breaking the silence we will om. Not a short 1-2 minute om, but a long drawn out 15 minute or 30 minute om. If we are all focused and om together, not in a hurry to get it down, but to be with it in the moment, we can create energy that will change the world.

Each of us has a crucial role to play in this sacred ceremony that is the core of the Annual Gathering of the Tribes. This is why I and so many people I know go to the gathering, dig shitters, chop wood and carry water. This is why so many people dedicate so much resources and energy to the gathering. Please if you choose not to participate, please be silent and let those who wish to create a sacred ceremony do so.


  1. I suggest to merge with BundyFest!
    Come celebrate TOTAL FREEDOM at BUNDYFEST, just across the street from the Cliven Bundy Ranch, in Bunkerville, Nevada! 240 bands, 24 hours a day, for a SOLID ROCKIN' MONTH, October 3- November 2!!!!
    *PENIS ERECTION CONTEST: Erect the largest penis in the open desert, win valuable prize! (tbd)
    BACKGROUND: For years, we paid permitting fees to hold Burning Man on the beautiful Playa in Northern Nevada. But now, Cliven Bundy has shown us a NEW WAY! ABSOLUTE FREEDOM! Bundy has declared the entire area surrounding Bundy Ranch as a TOTALLY RULES-FREE ZONE! ANYTHING GOES! WOO-HOO!!!
    Why should Burning Man end on September 1st? Swing down to Vegas for a few days for some R&R, a few good buffets, and then HEAD ON UP TO BUNDYFEST! All 50,000+ Burning Man participants are invited to attend -- and as many more as can make the trip from anywhere in the world! 100,000? 250,000? THE SKY IS THE LIMIT AT BUNDYFEST! The desert surrounding Bundy's ranch is LIMITLESS!

    1. my vote is NO to merging- I am not an anything goes person, experience has taught me to be a disciplined, careful, and Karma conscience spiritual human who prefers a sober lifestyle that is STD and HIV free. God Bless-

  2. MORONS-------get a life join the army

    1. you ARE what you call people--and fyi I AM a veteran of the United States Navy AND a rainbow gathering goer. BE HONEST anonymous, have you served your country in the military? God bless & may your negativity not come back on you.

  3. I a cannot wait to head to this years camp....I went to my first gathering aprox 7

    years ago, my nine year old son was then less than 2. I put him in the all terrain

    stroller and off we went to hike into the delightful Steam Boat Springs Colorado

    gathering. we ate sprouts , traded good and service for good and service...ate well,

    & met loving pure people. One of my fondest memories is...Evan and I were sleeping

    in our tent when I was awakened by the sound of a saxophone at dawn......it was the

    song "Some where Over The Rainbow"...I peeked out to see a sweet red headed

    dreadlocked young man walking through the forest! We saw people with fairy wings

    on....visited many camps and this first gathering is where I started my own

    dreadlocks.....yes my hair is natl. curly so it was easy to start natural dreads. I am

    grateful to God for this experience and pray that once again we will be blessed with

    another beautiful adventure with the rainbow tribe~ lovs from Provo Utah
