The Gathering for Life on Earth (a.k.a the Gathering, a.k.a. GFLOE) is a co-created Pagan spiritual retreat for all ages, hosted each year by the Greater Vancouver Pagan community.
The purpose of this weekend event is to build community; to foster religious discussion; and, to celebrate life on the Pagan path. We pride ourselves on welcoming and being inclusive of all paths whether you’re an animist, ceremonialist, druid, heathen, shaman, witch, or other. The Gathering is intended by its organizers to be a meeting place where Pagans can be exposed to new ideas; be spiritually challenged; grow; meet new people; and above all — have fun!
The Gathering for Life on Earth is a registered non-profit society run by a members-elected board of volunteers who are elected each year at an annual general meeting which takes place during the event. The Gathering does not make money, but is instead here solely for the benefit of the community. It is completely run by unpaid volunteers who work hard to organize a new festival each year.
We invite you to read through the pages on this website to get a strong sense of the event.
