This is IT, Sweet Healers!
After all your hard work, and your great growth over the year, we will be gathering for the sake of joining our hearts and beginning the actual practice of all parts of Soul Answer Healing together! This is when you will practice Heart Breath healing, along with the Socratic Method of questioning from Soul to take your healee deeper and deeper into their pain and subsequent healing. And you will be practicing these full Soul Answer Healing sessions most intensely for the next year of our study together! This will become the basis of your upcoming practicums over the following year.
These sessions will be demonstrated, and then you students will work on your classmates, then we will discuss these sessions. Soul tells me to put all your names in a bowl and then choose which sessions you will be doing. That way, Soul will make the assignments, not me!
When you get to the
will get your Healee
So, here is the Scoop!
We will be at Hacienda de Guru Ram Das, Espanola, NM, staying in the Gold House, while practicing in the Yoga Center across the courtyard called "Hacienda Yoga."
Course starts on Wednesday, Feb. 6--Sadhana at 6:00 to 7:30 AM. Arrive as well-rested as you can on Tues., Feb. 5. Check the course schedule once it is published here. On the morning of Feb. 6 meet at the Yoga Center, that is across from the Gold House in the "Old Ladies Camp" area. It is off Shady Lane, on the dirt road called Shakti Lane.
Please print out the schedule to the right on this page when it
Travel to NM on Tues., Feb. 5, 2019 and then travel home on
Wed., Feb. 13.
Carpool to and from the Albuquerque, NM airport to our place at
the Espanola, NM ashram--about a 1 1/2 hr. drive. Probably in
the fall, airline prices may drop, so that would be a good time to
make your airline and rental car reservations. If everyone tried
to get into Albuquerque by noon on Feb. 5, you could share
the cost of renting cars to get to Espanola. Then see what you
can do about getting your return flight at about 10 AM or a little
later on Wed. Feb. 13 . Then plan to leave Espanola at least
3 hours ahead of your flight time, perhaps at 6:30 AM.
PREPARATION, DATES, PAYMENTS, ETC.
Jan. 1, 2019 or before, $500 due. It is non-refundable because we will have to start paying for our course expenses then. Instructional fees have been covered by your regular monthly payments. But now this payment will cover the cost of your catered meals, casual breakfast buffet, unending yogi tea, fruit snacks (if you need something more than fruit, please bring it), rental of the wonderful yoga center, plus materials.
You can pay that $500 in one lump here.
This amount must be paid by Jan. 1 in order to attend this Healapalooza. I need to pay many bills before our course, so I am sorry that I would not be able to lend you any of that amount.
Or if you would rather automatically pay $72 per month for 7 months on the first of each month, starting July 1, please let me know right away so that I can set it up for you. email@example.com That would be charged to the same credit card that you currently use for your monthly payments that occur between the 10th and 15th of each month. Or we can put that on a different card. Personally, I believe this would be the easiest method.
Please bring money for your admission to the traditionally healing hot springs at Ojo Caliente-$38, and for any extra treatments you would like ojospa.com. Also for eating a real NM lunch at beautiful Rancho de Chimayo ranchodechimayo.com, shopping in the fascinating religious goods store at the historic and sacred Sanctuario de Chimayo, car rental/gas, dinner on your arrival night Tues., Feb. 5, etc.
On your arrival day, you will need to find all your own meals, so you can either get food in Albuquerque (we like the Indian Food & Grocery that has a lovely buffet and take-out at 6501-B Wyoming Ave. NE), pick up something in Santa Fe, or you can wait until you are in Espanola. See locations at www.SoulAnswer.com/new_mexico.html . My favorite restaurant in Espanola is La Cocina.

Make your own room reservations at the historic Gold House and pay for them. Generally you would be sharing rooms among 2 or 3 ladies. Charandayal Singh would be in the only single room, of course. See all about these accommodations at lyfrentals.com . So, please get your roommates together before you call Nirbhe Kaur at 505-927-8665. Ask for the Gold House, and tell her whether you would rather be in the "cooler zone" on the north wing, or the "warmer" zone on the south side of the house. If you would like the very cheapest unlisted rate, and are willing to share a queen bed in a room that also has 2 occupied single beds, you would be splitting the fee for that queen bed in that room that is listed for 3. If there is a need for more rooms than are available at the Gold House, we can find other accommodations nearby. Let me know.
You will be staying at the Gold House in the "Old Ladies' Camp Area". From the Albuquerque Sunport, you will be traveling north from Albuquerque on I-25 for about an hour. Then perhaps take the Relief Route Bypass, Rte. 599 around Santa Fe, (or you can go straight through Santa Fe, either on Cerillos Rd., or St. Francis Drive. ) Then continue north to Espanola on Rte. 84/285, which extends straight north from St. Francis Dr. After 1/2 hour from Santa Fe, turn right at the stoplight on the Hwy. at the Dream Catcher Movie Theater onto Rte. 106/ Yogi Bhajan Hwy. In about 2 minutes, when you are passing Yogi Bhajan's Ranch on your left, turn right onto Shady Lane. Then very soon, make a left through the opening in the adobe wall to the Old Ladies' Camp area. You will all be staying in the adobe/stucco "Gold House" on your left. The combination to the lock on that door is 1211 and then turn the lock "thingie." Lots of travel information, including grocery stores and restaurants is at www.SoulAnswer.com/new_mexico.html .
Bring your own non-spillable water bottle--no open cups or glasses of water, or plates or bowls of food, or fruit without a napkin, or crumbly food without a plate or napkin can be taken into the class room. We will provide you with covered Yogi Tea mugs that you will keep track of yourself.
Bring yoga clothes and mat/sheep skin, shawl or wrap for yoga (it can be quite chilly in the early morning), head covering, layers of warm clothing (it is below freezing at night, but maybe in the 40's Fahrenheit in the day; in Celsius that is -6 to 9 degrees, possibly some snow), I believe that the Gold House and the Yoga Center will be warm, but be sure to bring sweater, light jacket--layers, just in case. Bring a bathing suit for Ojo Caliente hot springs, cover-up/robe, spa shoes, lock for locker there--or rent one there, extra towel if you like. Bring slide-off shoes for walking across the court yard and environs (we don't wear shoes in the Gold House or in the Yoga Center but please bring slippers or socks for these buildings). I wear long johns all winter-long every year. Maybe you will need snow boots, do bring walking shoes for walks/short hikes, dress-up clothes--whites for Lungar (lunch at the ashram). Bring nice casual clothes for classes that you would normally wear to do your healing sessions, and if you like, a set of less formal clothes for taking short walks here.
Bring any extra snacks that you might need. We will have fruit and yogi tea available all days.
BRING YOUR HAND HELD RECORDER and plenty of batteries or recharger!
WEATHER--Of course there is no way that I personally can predict the weather! So, you will have to take responsibility for deciding what you need to pack. Here is a link to a long range weather forecast: https://www.accuweather.com/en/us/espanola-nm/87532/february-weather/334610 Ask Soul what you might need to pack.
Is there anyone who can bring their phone with their mantra play list and their BlueTooth speaker? If so, please contact Tejwant Kaur. email@example.com
If you are prone to altitude sickness (we are at about 5,800 feet altitude), I would suggest that at least 2 weeks before you leave home, you begin taking daily supplements of Vitamin B Complex, and/or ChlorOxygen by Herbs, Etc. This formula is made in Santa Fe especially to prevent altitude sickness. And it would be a good idea to bring electrolytes such as Emergen-C as well. It is still quite dry here in the winter, so please do drink lots of water and yogi tea.
BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE REVIEWED EVERYTHING!
I am so looking forward to hugging and being with all of you for our sweet joining of hearts and next step of your blessed studies, Dear Healers!
Lots of Love,
From Santa Fe, drive north on US 285 for about
1/2 + hour. At the stop light on the southern edge of Espanola, you will see a Mitchel Movie Theater on the far right side.. Turn right onto Rt. 106, Yogi Bhajan Hwy. (Rt. 399 is the other side of Rt. 106). In less than a mile, make a right onto Shady Ln., then first left onto Shakti Lane. Go to the end. Hacienda Yoga is on the right, and the Gold House is on left.
