The Sangre de Christo mountain range of northern New Mexico is known to the yogis as the Himalayas of the North America. New Mexico, known as the Land of Enchantment, is home to numerous sacred sites including tribal lands, pueblos and magnificent, natural earth cathedrals. The City of Santa Fe is a world leader in sustainable permaculture, conscious culture and spiritual life. In northern New Mexico you will find an abundance of biodynamic farms, off-grid lifestyles and a variety of ashrams and temples.
In this sacred place, tribal leaders will receive the Himalayan saints for their first pilgrimage outside of their native lands. The Sanatana Dharma of Mother India will unite with the earth conscious traditions of the indigenous nations for four days of holy rites, pilgrimage and prayer. In their presence, in this holy place, participants will sing, dance, chant, hold ceremony, meditate, offer puja and gather around the sacred fires to initiate the wave of consciousness that brings about enlightened life on earth.
