Summer Gatherings...

Summer gatherings consist of Four main ceremonies with minor work and social gatherings interspersed among them. The four main ceremonies are based on the center of our existence, OUR FIRE. Our Fire is the true host at our Square, and our four main ceremonies mark the stages of the Fire's life, beginning with its new birth each year at Green Corn.

movesa much as it did 200 years ago, according to what we are told by our elders and anthropologists who have visited and are familar with thre literature about old times. WE consider the TIME WE SPEND HERE TO BE SACRED TIME> , and it moves very DIFFERENTLY than TIME in our everyday lives--it is not linear, but CYCLICAL.
