Gaia Gathering Less Than 3 Months Away!

Reposted from

‘Just a reminder that our next Early-Bird deadline is approaching for registration.

Register before February 28th, 2009 and pay only $80 for three days of presentations, discussions, and meeting fellow Pagans from across the country. Social events will be available for an extra fee. Our banquet gala on Sunday night is a ‘steal’ at $30 (vegetarian options available.) To download the registration form, click here.

While you’re travelling to Vancouver, why not take the opportunity to see the Rockies? It’s off-season for ViaRail, so fares are comparatively inexpensive. Some sample travel return fares to Vancouver are $246 (taxes included) from Edmonton ($718 if you want a berth), $377 from Winnipeg ($943 if you want a berth), and $804 from Montreal ($1650 if you want a berth). There’s also the option of flying one-way and training the return, or vice versa. One-way fares are effectively half the return fares.

Some examples of current return airfares to Vancouver (taxes and surcharges included) through Air Canada are $250 from Calgary , $366 from Winnipeg, $470 from Toronto, and $680 from Halifax. West Jet fares are usually similar, but check them out for your selves.

Accommodations start at $38/night for a single dorm accommodation. Or gather together six friends and share a suite with a fully equipped kitchenette for $259 (maximum occupancy is seven people). Visit our accommodations page to book online: Click here.

If travel fees are completely out of your reach, but you’d like to contribute to Gaia Gathering, consider volunteering to help out during the event and apply for one of our travel scholarships. For more information see our website. Click here.

Have money left over after booking your travel? Consider donating to our travel fund to sponsor those of us on tighter budgets and from further away. Simply indicate the amount of your donation on your registration form.

We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver!
