day 1 (September 4)
Group arrives and sets up camp. Camp responsibilities assigned.
day 2 (September 5)
Acclimation Day – We start with breakfast and a talking stick then head to Las Vegas (NM) for shopping (herb shop and local artists), lunch and a dip in the local hot springs by the Gallinas River and, then, back to camp. Bring your swimsuit.
day 3 (September 6)
After breakfast, we head to the wide open field, lush with local plants. Many forms of Indian paintbrush grow here and while we do not make internal medicine from these plants, we certainly will co-create with them in our mandala and in ceremony. The afternoon will have classes chakra energy, a bit of drumming and other areas of interest to the group.
day 4 & 5 (september 7-8)
These days will alternate by the group number you are assigned to after registration. One group will work with Pam & Annaleah preparing for their sweat lodge that evening; there is much to be done in preparation. The other group will be with Regina and Kahla, cooking a feast meal and making camp safe for the sweat participants. Then, on Saturday, we switch it up.
day 6 (September 9)
We gather on the mesa at sunrise for talking stick, then, breakfast and our farewells. This is a travel day back home.
