Canyon de Guadalupe 2017 - Living Free
Fri, Mar 24, 2017, 12:00 PM – Mon, Mar 27, 2017, 11:00 AM PDT
What does it mean to you to Live Free?
a relaxing weekend in a desert oasis with natural hot-springs, fresh air, waterfalls and the profound quiet of being 40 miles from the nearest power-line?
4 days of joyful living, laughing, playing in a remote camp with 60 of your closest friends and lovers?
the inner serenity of having nothing to do, nowhere to go... being absorbed by the raw stillness of the desert.
It is time to return to our home. We have journeyed, studied, hunted and gathered new wisdom and experiences to share with the tribe.
Bring your offering in the form of a mini-workshop, song, skit, dance, meal, hug, presence … bring your beautiful self to lay upon the altar.
Join me as we build Heaven on Earth, Adam
Tucked away in the Mexican mountains just 4 hours from San Diego there is a magical place with natural hotsprings and the most amazing quiet. I have been here so many times I have lost count and would LOVE for you to join me this year. We are embarking on the second decade of community gatherings at the healing sacred waters.
Be sure to visit us on facebook at Canyon de Guadalupe - Furthering the Journey to see pictures of previous years and connect with our fellow journeyers.
Canyon de Guadalupe Hotsprings is a desert oasis about 60 miles southwest of Mexicali and about 40 miles from the nearest paved road or powerline. It is a camping experience with limited facilities and no access to provisions or other supplies. The weekend begins on Friday morning when you meet up with your ride and ends Monday noon as we prepare to leave.
Arriving and Leaving times:
Please do not arrive before 1pm on Friday or plan to stay past 1pm on Monday without making prior arrangements. In the past we have accomodated those who needed to leave on Sunday. For this year, please make what ever arrangements you need to be there for the closing ritual on Monday morning.
The cost is $120 per person. This is for 3 nights camping and for 4 full days use of 8 tubs, mud bath, and the huge naturally heated swimming pool. Even the flush toilets are supplied with hot water for the famous butt facial. There has been a lot of interest this year and I fully expect the event to sell out far in advance.
Tickets are not refundable, but are transferable.
A few weeks before the event you will be assigned to one of 6 meal teams for supper and breakfast. You and your team will plan, purchase, serve and clean up for one of these meals and then just show up for the remainder with gratitude and an empty plate. Because of the variety of daytime activities, lunches are on your own.
This is an off-road adventure that requires a high clearance vehicle. 4WD is helpful, but not required. California Baja car rental http://www.cabaja.com/ rents vehicles you can take on this trip. Carpooling is highly encouraged. Mexican auto insurance is REQUIRED for all vehicles that cross the border. Multi-vehicles caravans will be formed to support all travellers, especially those coming for the first time.
A few people have asked me about cross border safety. I have made this trip many, many times with no troubles at all. We cross the border in the little town of Tecate and after just a couple of miles are on the toll road. Then we are off on the desert and up into the mountains. Other than the very laid back nature of the campsite you wont even know you are in Mexico. Every once in a while the federalies will seach a car or two so make sure you are "squeeky-clean" legal in every way.
Crossing the Border:
You will need a valid passport for reentry.
Your children are more than welcome. Please be prepared to supervise them at all times. The soaking tubs and swimming pool are clothing optional.
Of course we will relax and soak in the mineral water, share hugs, kisses and more... and:
there is the hike to the waterfall(s) (if you make it past the third you are no longer a virgin and are welcomed into the order of the S.L.U.T. (Sacred Loving Universal Tantrika)
perhaps a ride to the ancient petroglyphs (4WD only)
Talent show, puja,.... You are invited to dream up a short activity playshop to present. In the past we have had group massage, clay body painting, toe nail polishing, ZEGG forum.
