Sukhava Bodhe Yoga & Music Festival 2018

August 31 @ 1:00 pm - September 3 @ 4:00 pm

$10.00 - $750.00

Sukhava Bodhe means “Joyful Awakening” and consists of four days of yoga, music, camping, wisdom talks, beekeeping classes, late night fireside gatherings, and community.

“We believe that through joyful movement, music and meditation, the mind, body and spirit come alive. It’s an awakening. And when these ignited spirits come together, the collective power to make the world a better place increases exponentially. It is community that empowers us to create an abundance of joy to experience, share and enjoy.” -Mission of Sukhava Bodhe

To attend, please purchase a 1, 2, 3, or 4 day pass and feel free to add on a ticket to one of this year’s special intensives: Vinyasa Intensive with Daren Friesen and Kundalini Intensive with Shakta Kaur!

Also, you may purchase tickets for the Farm-to-Table Dinner on Sunday as well as tickets for one or more Stand Up Paddle Board classes throughout the weekend!

We also have Rock the Love Youth Camp for the little ones!

Looking forward to seeing you at the fourth annual Joyful Awakening!


When should I arrive?

General Admission:
General admission begins 3pm Friday for those who have a four day pass.

All other pass holders must arrive on a day listed on their pass and are permitted to camp the last night listed on their pass. For example, if you have a Saturday pass, you may arrive as early as 6am Saturday and camp that night. Those who camp must leave by noon the following day and are permitted to take classes only on the day(s) which are included in their registration.

Gate Times:
Friday, 8am-9pm
Saturday, 6am-9pm
Sunday, 6am-8pm
Monday, 6am-12pm

What should I bring?
We suggest you bring the following to help make the most of your weekend:

  • Tent with a tarp
  • Bug spray
  • Water (some will also be for sale)
  • Sunscreen
  • Earplugs for light sleepers
  • There will be food and supplies available for purchase throughout the weekend
  • Yoga mat and any props you like to practice with (straps, blocks etc)
  • Towels for showing and swimming

What can I expect there?
Sukhava Bodhe is a camping event. Enjoy the beauty of Stonehouse Farm’s gentle rolling fields, woodlands and swimming pond.

Grills/Firewood: Participants may bring portable grills, which can be used in designated areas of the campsite. Outside firewood for campsites isn’t allowed, but wood will be sold on-site.
Recycling and Trash: Facilities for both will be available on site. Reduce, reuse and recycle, and please do not use fire pits as garbage cans.
Wildlife: We subscribe to the “leave it as you find it” principle. Please don’t feed the wildlife. Fishing in the pond is also prohibited.
Quiet Hours: Designated quiet hours will run from midnight to 6am. Please respect your fellow campers and confine any noise and music to your own site, especially during quiet hours.
Fireworks: No fireworks are allowed at Stonehouse Farm.
Pets: Pets are not allowed at Stonehouse Farm.
Food and Drink: Vendors will be selling food on-site and supplies will be available at the General Store, including necessities like toothpaste. We encourage campers to bring their own. Please be mindful of the no-glass policy. Ice will also be on sale at the store.
Alcohol: Sukhava Bodhe is an awakening of all that is inherently joyful within the body, mind, and spirit. As such we have a no-alcohol policy and ask that if you want to enjoy an alcoholic beverage, that you do it in your tent or away from public view. From a yogic perspective, alcohol has a lethargic effect on the mind and body, and is rather opposed to the intention for this weekend. We thank you for this consideration.

What are my transportation and parking options?
Cars and motorcycles can park at a designated lot on the property. There will be RV hookups on-site, which will be given out on a first come-first serve basis. RV’s may park for $100 for the weekend.

Can I bring the kids?
This is a family-friendly gathering and children twelve and under do not need a ticket to attend the weekend. There will also be a designated family camping area on the ground of Stonehouse Farm and yoga classes for kids. Special kids classes will require pre-registration.
