24th Australian Spiritual Unity of the Tribes Gathering Ceremony

Lightbody Rd, Nelson, Vic.

17th - 20th October 2024 (Camp Day 16th October)

Spiritual Unity of the Tribes, acknowledging the Gunditjmara people, will host a ceremony for four days near Nelson, Vic. The gathering ceremony will commence at sunrise on Thursday 17th October, with ceremony to light the sacred fire, which will be the centre of the gathering. The gathering ceremony will conclude on the afternoon of Sunday 20th October, followed by a fundraiser auction.

Camp day will be on the 16th October. You will be asked to honour a treaty between yourself, SUT and the Elders regarding conduct while on the land. Monday 21th is cleanup day.

Spiritual Unity of the Tribes (SUT) has been brought to Australia at the request of Medicine People overseas, to help spread the healing that the world so desperately needs.
It offers a safe community camp of people sharing a common belief – an acknowledgement of a higher power and intent and belief that through prayer change and healing can occur.
All people are welcome, in particular youth and children as an acknowledgment of their role in the future, to share this camp and sacred fire.

SUT is sponsoring several elders to attend and share their wisdom around the fire.

A gathering will hold as its centre the honouring of spirit, the sanctity of the land and the wisdom of the elders.

Gatherings are to be living demonstrations of the ancient values of truth, peace, non-violence and love. They will nurture deep connections as they bring people of all faiths and races together.
