Shambala Gatherings is situated 5 minutes from a town called Skinnskatteberg, 2 hours north of Stockholm.  

It rests by the lake Gattjärn in the deep forest of Bergslagen and is easy to reach both by air, train, bus and car.


The kitchen is the heart of Shambala. They say: "We just love to make delicious vegetarian food for you. We not only use the best possible ingredients, including organic products, biodynamic where possible and locally produced vegetables and honey. It´s easy to enjoy Shambala´s menu even when being a vegan. We minimise the use of any animal products as well as wheat and gluten.  We also take care of food combinations to ensure that you are in top energetic shape all throughout the retreat."  Yum.



The facilities at Shambala Gatherings include 2 yoga shalas, 15 twin guests rooms, treatment room, cinema room, volunteer's guest house, art studio, WiFi, main kitchen and small kitchen, teacher room, library, sauna and lounge all set in an idyllic space surrounded by lakes and deep forests. 



This will be our second time at Shambala Gatherings for 2015. It is a favourite venue for Tattered Butterfly Arts.  Here, we have all we need to perfection and are supported extremely well in our work.  We have ample dance space in a light, clean, warm and beautiful studio.


Please remember to bring your own bed sheets and towels. If you forget, you can rent them from Shambala for 150kr.
