What to Bring

Sat Nam,

Our hearts go out to each of you at this time of great upheaval and challenge. We're sending you our wishes for health for yourself, all your loved ones, your communities and the world.

In response to the very real public health challenge of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel all our in-person Summer 2020 events: Summer Solstice Sadhana, International Women's Camp, and Khalsa Youth Camp.

We will be providing full refunds and we ask for your patience with the process given the numbers of registrations we need to refund. Cancelling these events will have a large financial impact on our organization.  We also ask that if you would like to support 3HO financially during this challenging time, you can choose to "pay it forward" and your registration fee will be credited towards Winter Solstice 2020, a future 3HO event, or a donation to help 3HO in this time of financial challenge.

You can process your cancellations here.

We look forward to supporting you online with Kundalini Yoga,

The 3HO Foundation Team

What NOT to Bring To help maintain the health and long life of the Earth, we are conscious of preserving the ecological balance on-site. Please keep this in mind as you select items to bring with you.

  • Please do not bring any aerosol sprays
  • Use items that have only a minimum of disposable packaging
  • If you must buy something for the event from Wal-Mart or another local store in New Mexico, please unpack the item at the store and leave the packaging down the hill, 2,000 people make an enormous amount of waste, we all need to help to reduce our impact. 
  • Do not bring disposable plates and cups
  • Any flammable materials including candles, incense, lighters, and matches.

What NOT to Leave at Solstice

  • Nothing should be left, we are working towards becoming a low impact site so please take with you whatever you bring!
  • Do not donate your sleeping bags, tents, or any other articles you have bought or brought that you do not want to take home. Consider renting one of our tents and buying a sleeping bag that is meant for traveling that you will want to keep. We're working on keeping the planet green. Thank you for respecting this request.
