About the event

Soularus Seasonal Campouts presents

WINTER SOLSTICE 2023

Join us for our Winter Solstice Campout, the fourth campout in our series of four seasonal campouts each year on every equinox and solstice. See next year's dates at bottom!

4 days and 3 nights of connection, expression, and movement in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains! Our Winter Solstice Campout is more contemplative and inward than our other seasonal campouts and it incorporates the powerful journey of a full day of silence. There will be an emphasis on spaciousness, simplicity, and slowing down. Enjoy dance journeys, yoga/qi gong, meditation, authentic movement, contact improv, healing arts, hiking, nature immersion and plenty of free time each day to nourish your mind, body, and soul.

WINTER SOLSTICE CAMPOUT

An extended weekend of connection, expression, reflection, and movement at Skyview overlooking the Monterey Bay. We will get cozy as we enter the winter season together and honor/celebrate the longest nights of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This will be a deep container blending a variety of offerings from our DJs and facilitators (see schedule below).

Picture yourself dancing amidst the trees, taking a long solo or group hike, sitting beside the campfire quietly contemplating the new year ahead, soaking leisurely in the hot tub after a transformative workshop, or sharing a satisfying conversation over a delicious meal prepared by our cooks. There will also be a day of "silence in motion" from 7pm on Saturday to 7pm on Sunday. All dances, classes and activities are held without conversation or talking during this 24-hour period and participants are asked to do the same in all their interactions.

This campout includes simple, organic, vegetarian meals (vegan/gf options) which are provided with love and care to nourish your body. As for sleeping, there are both spaces to pitch a tent or car/van camp. There will also be a large heated group tent for some of the classes and activities that will also be available for anyone to roll out their sleeping bag. And yes there's a hot tub, two outdoor hot showers, and two composting toilets.

NOTE: All of our scholarships have already been awarded to those who identify as BILPOC and would not otherwise attend the retreat without it. This is part of our commitment to increase racial/ethnic diversity and inclusivity. There are no more scholarships available at this time.
