When you arrive the Welcome Team will greet you at the gate. Your registration information will be confirmed, you get to chose a Karma Yoga role, will be invited into a mystical process to select a "Home Group" and directed to where you will sleep (camping ground or shared unit).
Arrival time: any time after 3 pm on Friday, Janaury 11th (Please note: only the Set-Up crew are able to be on site prior to this).
Arriving after 3pm gives you time to register and settle in before dinner at 6pm. The Evening Programme and Welcome Ceremony begin at 7.30pm.
All cars should be moved to the designated car park area prior to the Welcome Ceremony at 7.30pm.
Karma Yoga is "the work that does itself - through you" when you are having fun! It is a work offering of service, for the benefit of the community. In this way everyone (except children) gets to actively contribute to the everyday running of the camp. Karma Yoga jobs usually take a small amount of your time each day and includes one of the following: morning veggie chopping, helping with dish washing, clearing tables, toilet and shower cleaning, serving in the cafe, or other little jobs that keep our camp running smoothly for everyone. This is a great opportunity to connect with people as you work together!
If you have a Weekend Pass - please come from opening on Friday (6pm dinner) until the conclusion of Sunday evening (after 9.30pm).
Locals, and those who are not registered, are welcome for an "Open Day" on Sunday, January 13th - Arrival is by 10am with departure at the conclusion of the evening dance session.
Staying within these camp options supports containment of the sacred space and allows participants to open up more, to be seen for who they are and embrace deeper experiences of connectedness. It also facilitates ease and flow for Karma Yoga, Heart Groups and interpersonal relationships.
