Women-In-Training Camp 2008


~ awaken ~ empower ~ celebrate ~

We invite you to join us at the Women-In-Training 2008 in the sacred mountains of northern New Mexico. Yogi Bhajan started the tradition of Women's Camp in 1976 with the intention to stretch physical and spiritual horizons of women, challenge them with the unique empowering technology of specialized Kundalini Yoga for women, and give them a well-deserved time away from their duties!  

This year we continue to share the endearing experience of Women-In-Training Camp with you. Join us and boost your spiritual practice with intensive meditations, yoga sets and spirited chanting. Take a break from your responsibilities and dissolve your physical limitations with Yogi Bhajan's specialized Physical Training sets, outdoor challenges and camping under the panoramic skies of the high desert.

Shakti Valley is the home of the Women-In-Training Camp Espanola 2008. We will have two large classroom tent pitched in around the Peace Tree.

This year we are hosting Women's Camp at Ram Das Puri, which is the Summer Solstice site. (Click HERE for driving directions to Ram Das Puri) Yogi Bhajan spoke about the extraordinary healing and transformation which occurs on this sacred land of the Tewa Pueblo People who meditated here for hundreds of years. Yogi Bhajan explained that this land was used for sacred healing before it came into our hands in 1974. He said that tribes from both South America and North America gathered here to celebrate and participate in the Sacred Healing Walk.

Village of Women

The vast skies and enchanted land of New Mexico will host our sacred circle of women.

Children from infant to 3 years are included in program. Older children, ages 3 - 12, can attend
Khalsa Youth Camp which is held also at Ram Das Puri.

Women's Camp will create a "Shakti Village" on the Ram Das Puri land. Classes will be held in our traditional "big top tent" as well as other tents and under the shade of various trees. Accommodations are tents. Most women bring there own however we do have a limited supply of tents to rent...please reserve them early! The camp provides simple showers. There are portable toilets. Bring your camera to capture the magnificent panoramic skies!

Women's Camp is organized using a missel system where smaller groups of 10 - 12 women function as a family unit for discussions, service duties or specific activities. A limited number of service scholarships are available for women who are interested to assist with more extensive camp duties.
