How is it different than a festival?

Three Gates Gathering 2020 How it Works

An individual chooses a facilitator they wish to travel with through the three gates of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. They then have three classes, one

for each gate to give them a deep understanding of the topic of discussion.  Each topic is taught by the same facilitator, therefore, preserving continuity for that

particular topic. 

Additional opportunities for individual workshops, conversation, and hanging out happen all through the Mystery School

 The Format

There are 3 workshops on each topic. The classes run 1 hr which includes a minimum of 15 minutes of discussion. Therefore an individual will be finished all classes by 3 PM on Saturday.

The classes run as follows:

First Gate: (First class in each Track): Friday 4:00 PM

Second Gate: ( Second Class in each Track): 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Third Gate: ( Third class in each Track): 1:45 PM – 2:45 PM

Therefore, three classes will be going on at each time slot resulting in maximum efficiency and ease of administration and participation.


There are also three rituals during the Mystery School.  The ritual is designed to run approximately 1 hr. At the end of the Opening ritual and musical performance we will have drumming and dancing around the main fire pit and after the musical performances after Main Ritual we will have drumming and dancing around the Main Fire Pit.
