OUR SEASONS

Shambala is not only a summer love affair.  Our facilities are available all throughout the year. From the new flower buds, to the midnight sun, to the red forrests and the snowy pines, each season is a dreamland.

SPRING: THE EXPLOSIVE DANCE
(low season)

It is a unique experience  to see nature waking up to the spring season in Sweden. A gentle awakening of all the elements in the forrest greets us with freshnes and aliveness. The low sun rays shine through the branches of the trees who themselves courageously open up to bloom. The birds, playfuly come to sing and the warmer waters melt and finally bless the nearby animals to drink.

SUMMER: THE MIDNIGHT SUN
(high-season)

Waking up in the middle of the night to see a bright day is an unparalell experience for any nature lover.
The summers in Sweden are filled with days of sun (and some light rain), but generally with a pleasant temperature of  20-25 degrees celsius. Days are long and pleasant, the community is home and there is a feeling of playfulness and co-creation.

AUTUMN: THE COPPER FORRESTS
(low-season)

For many, autumn is their favourite season in Sweden. After a bright summer, the lower sun rays bring calm and groundedness. The forrests are filled with tones of auburn, orange, red and ochre. Animals are playfuly seen collecting their food and preparing for hibernation. All around the air is fresh, the golden light invites us to stop, reflect and dwell in our own serenity.

WINTER: THE WHITE SNOWFIELD
(low-season)

The beautiful winter season in Sweden is an ocean of white snowfield everywhere, sparkling frozen lakes and pines heavy with snow. Many times the sun blesses the landscape exploding in a massive mirroring of light. The wolves and the elks are heard in the distance. The atmosphere is still and crisp, the mind is clear. It is the perfect opportunity to listen to the roar of silence and enter meditation. The nights in Shambala are cosy with warmth and candle light. 

The low season at Shambala goes from 1st of Sept until end of May. During this time Shambala is available for rent with or without catering services. In booking Shambala during the off-season, you will have access to the entire centre as we generally only serve one retreat at a time. The feeling is of stillness, introspection, union with nature and its cycles.

**During low-season: Retreats can enjoy the entire centre by themselves, the catering menu is created to their own specific needs, there is an atmosphere of stillness and serenity.

——-

The high-season at Shambala goes from end of May until the 1st of Sept. During the summer season Shambala opens its doors to retreats and the community who serve guests with warmth and devotion. We generally aim at holding paralell retreats in our two salas. The feeling is of joy, family atmosphere, playfulness and co-creation.

**During high-season: Retreats are surrounded by the warmth loving presence of the community. Guests enjoy the fun, open and social atmosphere. The feeling is of joy and play.

TEACHER TESTIMONIAL

“I often say that working at Shambala Gatherings is like working inside a singing bowl.  It has been the perfect venue for Spiderflower: Contemporary Earth Dance for coming up to 4 years now, and is a place that has become a home and base to our work and its development.  Spiderflower is extremely sensitive energetically, so it is ultra important for us to find a venue where our specific needs are met.  We were in need of a venue with professional standards but without a commercial feel, more intimate but with enough room for our guests. All of this Shambala Gatherings provides to a point of it being over and above any expectations we initially held.  But what is outstanding about Shambala Gatherings is the spirit of the place, and the level of care given not only to the venue in practical terms, but throughout the whole process.  The energy is so, so clear, deeply heart centred and the intent with which Shambala Gatherings is held is so beautiful it has become a massively important part of Spiderflower’s work and life.  We have found nothing like it elsewhere.  We love you all dearly, and with so many thanks.”

SHAMBALA: A CONSCIOUS BUSINESS

We define a conscious business, one in which its leaders are aware of the impact of their actions on others. It sees itself as part of a large eco-system that must be nourished and cared for. It challenges the hegemony of finantial profit as the driving force and instead seeks to benefit both human beings and the environment. Conscious businesses rely on the power of community and awareness to achive its goals. It seeks not competition but cocreation, not rivalry but cooperation, not infinite growth but organic sustainance.  Its leaders walk this balancing act with an interest in their own spiritual growth, humility, empathy and love.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for leaders, teachers, mentors and guides that are willing to walk the delicate path of conscious coocreation with us. We gladly support teachings from all spiritual traditions and paths of personal growth. We specially welcome those that see this relationship not just a as a business opportunity, but also as a chance to connect with the core values of Shambala: those of mutual respect, honor and joy.

Ready to co-create magic with us? We would love to hear from you.
Contact us for more information including prices and our Terms & Conditions.
We are in high demand throughout the entire year, please ensure you contact us way in advance.
Thank you.
