After consulting with the Gathering Elders and all of the Planning Committee, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Gathering of Eagles. The Shambhala Mountain Center staff has graciously offered to give us dates in June 2021 with all of the same arrangements that they had offered us for the Gathering this year. We do not have the exact dates in June 2021 from them yet, but will post them as soon as we are given that information.
Though we are grieving the loss that we won't be able to be together physically, we would like to offer that rather than calling this June 2020 Gathering "canceled," that we make prayers, meditate, sing, or however we choose to do ceremony, from wherever we are. We are not going to do anything virtually online, but we ask that people "Gather in Place" instead. If you are called to do so, please put the dates of June 8th to 11th on your calendar, observing an opening ceremony on the morning of the 8th, and however you want to offer prayers on the four days, until the closing ceremony before dark on the evening of the 11th. We can still make a difference for humanity and all that is by observing this time, from wherever we are on the planet.
We hope that you and your family are doing well during this pandemic period and time of great change, and that you have what you need. Please take good care of yourself.
With love and gratitude to each and every one of you ~ Mary Ellen and Clay Uptain for the Gathering of Eagles Committee
