The Summer Solstice Sadhana Celebration takes place at Guru Ram Das Puri outside of Española, New Mexico, about 35 miles north of Santa Fe. This sacred land is located in the Jemez Mountains at an altitude approaching 7,000 feet.
The sacred and enchanting land of Guru Ram Das Puri is located high in the Jemez Mountains of northern New Mexico. Guru Ram Das Puri is surrounded for miles by forest of extraordinary natural beauty. To step upon this land is to deeply connect with Mother Earth, and to celebrate Yogi Bhajan’s vision for a healthy, happy, and holy humanity.
In the high desert, days are hot and dry, but temperatures can drop dramatically in the evening and early morning. At this altitude, it is very important to use sun protection. Protect yourself as you would if you were at the beach on a very hot, bright summer day. It often takes two or three days to acclimate to this environment and the best way to manage your adjustment is to remain well hydrated. Bring a water bottle and carry it around with you. Water alone is not always sufficient to rehydrate a dehydrated person, so we offer our special electrolyte drink made with water, lemon juice, orange juice concentrate, and salt. Please also remember that water will help your body assimilate the emotional and physical changes you will be experiencing.
Free tenting is always available!
Yogi Bhajan recommended camping upon the beautiful land of Guru Ram Das Puri to keep us connected to the Earth and to the Solstice energy. Most attendees bring their own tents and camping gear. Please set up your tent in the designated tenting areas. There is no additional charge for tenting.
