Animals On-Site

While we share in the love for our animal friends, please do not bring your pets. We cannot accommodate them on site. If you have a therapy dog, please contact [email protected] to make arrangements for your animal. Please be aware that the policy for your animal includes your cleaning up after him so bring appropriate ‘doggie poop’ bags, as we do not provide these on-site. Your dog’s behavior will decide whether or not he can remain on site; barking, growling, and other behaviors that might make participants feel uncomfortable may result in containment or being asked to leave. If you have a therapy dog, you will have to tent; cabins are not available.

Environment

Please leave your environment cleaner than when you arrived. We ask that you “pack it in and pack it out” (if you brought it in, please take it with you when you leave). However, compost, recycle, and landfill containers are provided to serve you. More on Solstice Environment.

Attire

What we wear reflects our spirit. Please wear clothes that project your grace and radiance. Very sheer ‘see-through’ clothing is not appropriate attire for the event. Men, keep your shirts on, please.

What to Bring and Not to Bring

To make your experience at Solstice more comfortable and eco-friendly, please click here take a look at a suggested list of things to bring.

Quiet Time

One of our top priorities is providing the opportunity for everyone to experience group Sadhana every morning in the Amrit Vela (the ambrosial hours between 3–7 am) so late night activities are limited. All music, evening activities, and the bazaar end by 9:30 pm, and lights out in the camp is at 10 pm.
