With your support, we managed to reach our initial goal of 120.000kr !
We are overwhelmed with gratitude.
In effects of the tightening of the restrictions in Sweden, we now have a stretch goal of 160.000kr.
Financial help from the government has been and is still minimal, more retreats will need to be cancelled.
Thanks again for your generosity. You inspire us to keep sharing, keep loving and to keep supporting each other as one worldwide family. With your help, we will be able to get through these times.

Our beloved Shambala Gatherings (Borntorpet) is in need of help from YOU to keep on going after the losses made during the Covid Pandemic.
Please find our website here: https://shambalagatherings.com/
We have tried to postpone this decision as much as possible. But now we have come to a critical point where we need your support to keep going.
Unfortunately the governmental support we have received has been a drop in the ocean and banks feel it is too risky to let us take a loan. We have used our personal savings to stay afloat and frozen our own salaries.
We have done everything in our power to keep paying the salaries of our employees, give extra flexibility to guests and teachers and supporting emotionally all those that have been in fear and stress.
We would love your support to be made as soon as possible, so we can have a clear picture of where we stand. Please read below ways in which you can offer your support. THANK YOU !
Our intention is not let this pandemic defeat us and to trust that, with your help, we can keep offering opportunities in the future for people to come to their hearts, connect to each other and nature, learn to live in peace with one another and deepen their understanding of the path of yoga, meditation and music.
We have created three ways in which you can support our crowdfunding:
1. Loose Donations: Anything helps
2. Donations over 700kr/70 Euros: As a thank you, you receive our FREE Vegan E-CookBook
3. Donations over 1500kr/150 Euros: You are sponsoring a building at Shambala AND you will receive our new Vegan E-CookBook
1) *** LOOSE DONATIONS:
We are so grateful for your generosity. Any amount helps.
Simply chose your amount when you click on the "donate now" button.
Please make sure you add your email address to your donation, so we can reach out to you and express our gratitude.
2) *** COOKBOOK:
If you wish to donate over 700kr (approx 70 Euro), you will receive as a "thank you" gift from us, our new free vegan E-CookBook! 26 delicious recipes from our hearts to you.
(**Please note that we are currently offering our e-book, not the printed option.**)
All the delicious Shambala recipes are there: Jenny's home baked bread, Lena's famous chocolate balls, Johan's Ayurvedic Indian kitcheri, a gorgeous raw food cake from "raw food queen" Erica Palmcrantz (!), the secret recipe for Johan's alcohol-free viking beer, and much much more!

We will soon send you an email to arrange delivering our e-cookbook to your email Inbox.
The e-cookbook will be ready to be sent this January.
3) *** SPONSORING OUR BUILDINGS :
Here is a fun option :)
If you donate more than 1500kr/150 Euros, you can sponsor one of the following buildings at Shambala Gatherings.
As a clarification, we are not building any new buildings. The intention is to use these donations to pay for part of the rent from 2020.
We will create three beautiful signs with your names on them, and place them in three different locations:
- The Shakti Hall (large yoga shala)
- The Budha Hall (small yoga shala)
- The Dining Hall
Please add your email address to your donation, so we can contact you regarding the content of the sign.
We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for all your loving support during these 15 years we have been open, and we wish and pray that we will meet again, in the not too distant future.
Wishing you joy, health and love,
Johan, Melissa and the Shambala Crew
ps. We are so incredibly grateful to the talented Erik Jaråker and Georgie Uris for the videography, Joris van Egmond for the photography, and to our artistic Sonia Garces for the beautifully designed cookbook cover.
