What is Winter Solstice Sadhana?

"Come home when you can because there are two things in life --Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice -- when the divine cosmic energy can help you to elevate your consciousness and your health." 

Yogi Bhajan

 

Spiritual Community

One of the most exciting, inspiring, and fun aspects of Solstice is experiencing the love and support of the spiritual community that gathers together for deep transformational work.

"Sweet Perfection! I have never seen any camp so beautiful. WOW! I loved all the workshop choices and just the vortex of energy...it was breathtaking." - 2016 participant

A Drug/Alcohol/Smoke-Free Camp

Winter Solstice Sadhana is a drug-free, alcohol-free, and smoke-free camp. Keeping your consciousness clear and uplifted enhances the transformational experience of Solstice.

Healthy, Cleansing Vegetarian Diet

It is by no mistake that Yogi Bhajan chose the foods he did for the special menu that we refer to as the Solstice Diet. While it may not be apparent at first glance, this cleansing menu is masterfully crafted to give you the best opportunity to take advantage of the profound sadhana you’ll be engaging in throughout your solstice experience.

The Experience of Service

The entire camp is run by the participants. Everyone has the opportunity to serve for 1-2 hours/day.  Seva becomes a powerful aspect of the event; you build friends, make deep connections, and serve something larger than yourself in your seva missals.

Conscious Projection

Our projection includes what we wear. How we dress reflects our spirit. Please wear clothes that project your grace and radiance.  While wearing white is not required (except during White Tantric Yoga® , the experience of wearing white will expand your aura and radiance.  

Lights Out

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.

Photos and Videos

Participants are encouraged to take photos to record their experience, however, taking pictures of or recording (video or audio) teachers, classes, or workshops without prior consent is not allowed. Photos and videos of any and all White Tantric Yoga® exercises is also not allowed.

"If, somehow, because of circumstances or because of certain duties, you can’t come, please remember those ten days are precious. Wherever you are, meditate, chant and enhance your sadhana and just be very aware and careful that during those days you have to be very special." -Yogi Bhajan
