Dear Gathering Family and Friends:
We would like to share the new dates in June 2021 for the Gathering of Eagles in Northern Colorado, given to us by Shambhala Mountain Center, our host.
They are Sunday, June 6th for Camp Day, with the Opening Ceremony on the morning of Monday, June 7th and the Closing Ceremony on the evening of Thursday, June 10th. Again, we are encouraged to stay over to Friday morning, June 11th.
Having said all of this, we realize that we do not know what the next several months will bring with regard to the Coronavirus Pandemic. If we are not able to safely hold the Gathering of Eagles again next year, we will certainly err on the side of caution and postpone it once again. We will provide updates from time to time through our Announcements notices, as well as on the Gathering Facebook page. That page can be found by going to “Spiritual Unity of the Tribes Gatherings, Gathering of Eagles.”
In addition, we wanted to mention that we are in the process of updating our website in order to simplify the registration process, and to add some information on the Gathering history that we recently received.
Lastly, we want to remind everyone to “Gather in Place” during the period of June 8th through 11th, when we had planned to be together here for the 2020 Gathering of Eagles. We will be holding an Opening Ceremony and Closing Ceremony here with our Gathering Committee Members. Please link up with us and everyone else in prayers/meditations/songs from wherever you are, in whatever way feels comfortable for you during this period. Making a fire or keeping a candle lit during the four days, incorporating a water ceremony, and making prayer ties are possible suggestions. In addition, if you would like to post memories or photos from past Gatherings on our Facebook page, they are very welcome.
Please take good care and be gentle with yourselves and those around you at this difficult time.
With love and gratitude to each and every one of you ~
Mary Ellen and Clay Uptain for the Gathering of Eagles Committee
Upon arrival, please go to the Registration Cabin to check in.
The County only allows camping at Shambhala Mountain Center in the tents that they provide, which are 12 x 14 feet canvas tents on wooden platforms which contain two twin beds, bookcases, and hanging clothes racks.
Bedding is not provided. Please bring your own pillows, twin size sheets, sleeping bags or blankets (mindful that the nights will be VERY COLD), and towels for limited shower use.
No RVs are allowed, however, there are several camp grounds close by which can be used for people with RVs or those who need alternative camping. Click here for more information.
The standard fee for camping at Shambhala Mountain Center is $90 per day per person, which includes three meals per day. Due to the fact that we do not charge to attend the Gathering of Eagles, we are being allowed to pay $15 per person, per day for our meals, and donate as much as possible for our tent fees, in lieu of the $90 fee.
Individual campfires will not be allowed due to fire danger.
There are various lodging rooms available for anyone who does not want to sleep in a tent, requires electricity, etc.
Shambhala Mountain Center is allowing us 25% off their normal rates, with the discount code shown. Please go to the following link for information on the lodging rooms and to register.
