Rooms will be divided by individual genders, unless a "mixed" room is necessary and only people who designate "unisex" will be asked if they want to sleep there.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Everything you would normally take on a trip; clothes, toiletries, personal items, and you MUST provide your own bedding (sleeping bag or bedding and pillow). The cabins have twin-bunk beds. It gets cool at night, so please bring layers as even though we will be have campfires each night, a few steps away from the fire, it will be chilly (the cabins are heated also). Other things you might think about bringing; flashlight, bug spray, musical instruments, items that you sell or make to show and tell, games, and anything else that will bring you or others joy. Please contact us directly if you are interested in having a table in a possible "marketplace" one of the days.
IS THE FOOD VEGETARIAN/VEGAN?
At every meal, the chef and crew make a fabulous meal, served family style, with vegan & vegetarian options for those that require them.
ARE WE GOING TO DO CEREMONY?
We have invited the Shamans from Soultribe Sanctuary to lead us in a shamanic journey Saturday evening.. Since they are an ethnogenetic church,, participants will have the option of doing a micro or museum dose of "los ninos" for the ceremony.. Those whom choose to participate will be required to join the church and sign waivers., This is an easy process of simply reading the church's statement of beliefs. and signing a couple of forms. Info on this will be sent to individuals that sigh up for the retreat.
