Overview of the Gathering
Merry Meet! We are inviting you to attend the 47th annual Gatherings of the Tribes. This Gathering will provide us an opportunity to express our religious freedom of choice allowing us to celebrate and honor the Old Ways of Spirit and Nature.
The 47th anniversary of the Gathering of the Tribes will again be held at Cherokee Farms, near LaFayette Georgia, October 16 - 19, 2014 and will again focus on leadership and building pagan community. We will have Panel Discussions, Belly Dancing, Music, Workshops, and Presentations.
Gatherings are community affairs which we hope will reach out to every Pagan, Heathen and Hopeful Spirit in these areas!! All Respectful Seekers Welcome!!
The Gathering of the Tribes which has been continuously held since the late 60s has provided Pagans of the various traditions a common ground to appreciate the similarities between other paths. The Gatherings provide us an opportunity to express our religious freedom of choice and celebrate the Cycles of Nature. We share the passion of our beliefs and what is sacred in our life, with others. Our Bardic and nightly Drum Circles provide a way to celebrate our coming together. We sing, dance, drum, and feel the vibrations rising from the Earth with each beat of our hearts. We celebrate and honor the Old Ways of Spirit and Nature.
We are inviting some of the same national leaders we invited in the past, ( see http://www.dynionmwyn.net/history.html ) as well as current authors and groups to help us determine what has changed and what has stayed the same in the intervening years. This will help this conference determine what are the problems of the New Paganism. To help us identify these problems and solutions, we will focus on re-linking with Nature, building community, establishing leadership training, and working with pagan culture across a diversity of traditions and paths.
The Gathering of the Tribes is NOT an open carry event...if you have to wear a holstered weapon...and carry a rifle slung over your shoulder, you will NOT be allowed in the Gathering...this is Private Property and all rules will be obeyed by all participants. Any weapons in your possession must be kept locked in your vehicle...preferably The Trunk.
Finding and preparing outstanding men and women to build an expansive network of influential Pagan leaders is what we feel is very important for our survival as a Pagan Movement. The UFP network is a Foundation for the Future and we want you to be a part of it. Therefore, The UFP and Dynion Mwyn traditions invite you to join the UFP if you are not already a member and bring your unique point of view to this event. Go to: http://www.dynionmwyn.net/ufp.html
THE GATHERING OF THE TRIBES, INC.
In 2002, we incorporated the Gathering of the tribes. We did this because of the host of counterfeit GOTTs that were cropping up and claiming to be us! We also did it to try to include more Pagan and Earth Religion groups than just Dynion Mwyn. We are slowly realizing our goal and will be meeting soon to accept new members.
A CONTINUING RITUAL TO PROTECT THE WATERS OF THE WORLD
On 15th of March, 2014, thousands of pagans all around the globe gathered to form a world ritual. The objective? To bless, heal and protect the waters of the world from fracking and other Pollutions – hence the event’s name: “Waters of the World”.
During the 47th Gathering of the Tribes we will continue this theme with
a protection Ritual for all the Waters of the World.
Water is the sacred wellspring of life. Without it, this world would be nothing but an empty rock. We cannot allow Industrial pollution including fracking to destroy that which keeps us alive.
The global event can be found on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/events/501317586644153
For instructions on how to take part in this world ritual, please go here: http://www.warriorscall.org/archives/631
This global event is *all* about creating something out of nothing. Don't wait around for someone else to create a ceremony for you: Get out there and get involved. Life's for living, not for watching!
If you plan to hold a Water protection ritual, please get back to the e-mail listed next with a location and some details about your plans, so you can be added to the list. The e-mail address for this event is: email@example.com
Mother Earth is being attacked like never before - are you brave enough to heed the Warrior's Call and defend her in the sacred shield wall? Join this global wave of magickal activity if you are, and let’s make this latest international pagan event the biggest yet.
The primary sponsor for the Waters of the World event is The Warrior’s Call – pagans united against fracking. The Warrior’s Call is a UK based coalition of pagan anti-fracking groups. Fracking is threatening to turn United States drinking water wells and Britain’s sacred springs and wells toxic. Places such as Chalice Well in Glastonbury are under direct threat of being desecrated by this highly destructive drilling technology.
It is vitally important that these places of power are *not* allowed to be destroyed.
If you wish to protect Britain’s ancient sacred sites, then please donate here: www.igg.me/at/warriorscall

THE LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE AT THE GATHERING OF THE TRIBES
The 47th Gathering of the Tribes Leadership Conference will be again asking the question: “What Do We Need from Our Leaders?” To address this issue and those issues described below, we will have a comprehensive Panel Discussion. This will include questions from the Pagan Community and a discussion of what the average pagan needs from the leadership.
We had a fantastic meeting at the 46th annual Gathering with Oberon Zell, Prudence Priest and Rhuddlwm Gawr Moderating. We discussed many issues confronting Pagans in the South and established a few solutions which the participants to the meeting could take back to their communities.
As you know, religious leadership is complicated, especially within a pagan community that isn’t even in agreement about its collective identity, its purpose in our greater society, or even if we should classify what we do as religious.
Over the years we have gotten the impression that what pagans seem to want is a co-creative, egalitarian model of group interaction rather than a model which relies on a single leader. We want our strengths to be put to good use, we want our fellow coven or grove members to support us as we support them, and we want to experience our community without the sense that we are being dictated to.
This is what we want. But, is this what we need?
All leaders usually begin with a vision defined by the following questions: Who am I going to lead? Where am I going to lead them? Who and what do I serve?
A leader has to articulate his or her vision. “If I keep it to myself, I’m not leading anyone.”
A leader has to implement his or her vision. “Talk is cheap – how am I going to do the work necessary to make the vision a reality?”
This idea of “beginning with a vision” would be better phrased as “beginning with vision”.
Should the vision of a leader be thought of as more of a quality of seeing; a refinement of one’s faculties of observation? Perhaps we need our leaders to see what is happening in our communities and in the lives of individuals with greater clarity. In this way, their “vision” isn’t a noun. It isn’t a platform on which they can run for election. Instead, it is a tool which they can use in order to better understand their brothers and sisters.
But then the question is, what do we do when we recognize a specific need? Is that the moment where leadership begins?
In the Spirituality of Paganism, Leaders are teachers, or at least possessors of knowledge. They should have put in the time learning about the nuts and bolts of their practice or tradition but not be so bookish as to be unapproachable.
In the Spirituality of Paganism, Pastoral care should be a primary focus of religious leadership. If we’re going to work in service to the community, we should understand how to serve real, human needs.
In the Spirituality of Paganism, Leaders need the skills of compassion and empathy.
To be clear, there’s value in stepping back and thinking about the difference between what we want and what we need in all aspects of our life, but particularly when we’re thinking about the leaders of our covens, our groves, or our larger Pagan institutions.
Is there a difference between what Pagans want from our leaders and what we need from them? Have you found it challenging to discern the needs of your group, or did you have clear vision from the start?
These are some of the questions that need to be addressed at the 47th Gathering of the Tribes Leadership Conference...would you join with us in exploring these topics?
The Initial, Original and Authentic Gathering of the Tribes was held in the forests of Northwest Maryland. CLICK HERE TO SEE HISTORY Dynion Mwyn held the Gathering of the Tribes in Maryland from 1967 to 1970; in Georgia and South Carolina from 1971 to 2009; in Iowa 2010 and 2011. in Georgia in 2012 and 2013 and in 2014 we are again hosting the Gathering in North West Georgia at Cherokee Farms.
In March of 1967, Rhuddlwm Gawr and Dynion Mwyn established "The Gathering of the Tribes" (the first Pagan “Gathering of the Tribes” festival recorded) in Western Maryland. See http://www.dynionmwyn.net/history.html
In 1978 Dynion Mwyn held the 12th Annual "Gathering of the Tribes", with a National Pagan/Wiccan Leadership conference at Unicoi conference Center near Helen Georgia. It was attended by Ray Buckland, Margot Adler, Selena Fox, and many other national Pagan leaders. This gathering, held at the time of the Summer Solstice, brought together Pagans from many paths and places from all over the United States..
In 1991The Universal Federation of Pagans was founded June 21, 1991 in Atlanta, Georgia by Rhuddlwm Gawr and Otter G'Zell at The Gathering of the Tribes, A number of Pagan leaders discussed the possibility of creating a true federation of Pagan religions which could unite in a common cause rather than wasting energy in conflict.
These Pagan Leaders believed that it is important that dedicated and visible public leaders of the International Pagan movement be able to interact for the betterment of Paganism. Rhuddlwm Gawr (Church of Y Dynion Mwyn) and Otter G'Zell (Church of All Worlds) decided to make the necessary investment in time and money to establish such an organization.
Rhuddlwm and Otter contacted over three hundred Pagan Leaders all over the world and invited them to join as Trustees to help formulate the precepts which would establish the organizational process. Over one hundred and twenty Pagan leaders initially responded by becoming Trustees. These Trustees acknowledged the differences inherent in the many and diverse Pagan traditions, choosing the motto to be "Unity Through Diversity." They displayed a great vision of the future by acknowledging the need for a truly international Pagan federation which addresses universal issues. (see http://www.dynionmwyn.net/23directory.html )
In September of 1992, several of the Trustees met in Georgia again at the Gathering of the Tribes.
Lady Amythyst and Lord Rhuddlwm Gawr were elected co-facilitators. They helped to ratify the Articles of Incorporation. Lady Amythyst, Lord Rhuddlwm and Lady Galadriel were elected as incorporators, and in December of 1992 the Universal Federation of Pagans was legally incorporated in the State of Georgia. http://www.dynionmwyn.net/ufp.html
In 2007 and 2008 we held Gatherings near Augusta Georgia which hosted Maxine Sanders and national Pagan Authors.
In 2010 and 2011 we held the 44th and 45th Gatherings in Iowa
In 2012 we moved the Gathering to Cherokee Farms in North Georgia
In 2013, we held the 46th Annual Gathering of the Tribes at Cherokee Farms with Oberon G'Zell and others which was a resounding success.
201 4 will be the continuation of a new era of Pagan Festivals. We want to invite you to take part in this wonderful experience. Because of the cost of gasoline may place constraints on the distance you can travel this year we are holding the 2014 Fall Gathering of the Tribes in North west Georgia. We want to make our unique Gathering available to as many Pagans as possible. Come join us...become part of the history of the Gathering of the Tribes.
Sacred Traveling Ashes
A note about the the origin The oldest Traveling Ashes came from a camp north of Eldora, Iowa in 1912. They have traveled all over the world since then. They came back to Eldora in the early 90's and now continue to travel from ceremony to ceremony.
Bring ashes from a
sacred fire from a festival you attended in the past or
any appropriate item which you
wish to add to
the sacred fire at the opening ceremony. We will explain what and
why we are doing this at that time. At the
closing ceremony, all who wishes to take ashes and continue the
tradition at other festivals, will come forward. We
will then extinguish the sacred
fire to close the gathering. You will be given ashes to
take with you to the next Festival or Gathering. This ritual binds
pagans from many paths and generations.

I am truly looking forward to Gathering of the Tribes, and sharing my music with everyone at the Friday evening concert. See you in October!Fearless story-telling, bluesy vocals, humor, straight-ahead, rhythmic, 12 string acoustic guitar, djembe, and frame drums are all weft and warp of the soul of this Pagan bard.
Mama Gina feels most at home when she can feel the earth beneath her feet and taste the freedom of the open sky. She tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart. She sings of life, death and rebirth. She sings of holding on and letting go. She speaks to the Gods and Goddesses and they speak back. She sings their stories as they become her own. She sings of her spiritual connection to the natural world, and of our responsibility to nurture both the mundane and the magical. When she is not performing, you just might find her camping in the woods seeking inspiration from the earth beneath her feet and that vast, open sky.
Her CDs “Goddess Kiss’d” and “The Undertaker’s Daughter” are available at CDBaby, iTunes, amazon.com.

The Georgia site has large open fields, deep woods, a great covered stage, showers, and a nice covered pavilion. It's also very private: clothing optional area will be designated.
There are reasonably priced Motels available within 5 - 10 miles of the Gathering Locations.
Gates open at 12 noon on Thursday for camp setup and close 12 noon on Sunday.
We have outhouses on site (but you might want to bring your own toilet paper!)
If you bring anything in.... you will be expected to take it back out. Bring several Trash Bags.
You might want to set up a portable shower.
Drumming until all hours.
We reserve the right to deny admittance or remove anyone acting contrary to the spirit of the GOTT. Illegal substances are absolutely forbidden, by any and all people!! This is very important - if you can't abstain for the weekend, please stay home. We run the risk of losing the site and our freedoms otherwise. Unfortunately there are people who wish to bring down all our good work...you will find a description of their efforts at http://www.dynionmwyn.net/plagerize.html
As per ADA law all Service and Assistance Dogs will be permitted into the gathering. They must be identified easily (ie vest or tag) and they must be well behaved or the coordinators have the right to ask the dog to be put up. No other pets are allowed into the gathering and this will be strictly enforced as the Service Animals need no distractions of another animal trying to interact with them. To all general attendees if you see such a dog Service or Assistance please do not pet the dog or interact in anyway with the dog. The dog is working and 100% of their attention must be placed on their handler. Also please do not ask the handler why they have the dog this is considered rude. Thank you for your cooperation on this matter. You must clean up after your pet, so that "doggie bombs" are not left behind for others to step in. Service animals are always free, but must meet above guidelines."
