Activities

Sat Nam,

Our hearts go out to each of you at this time of great upheaval and challenge. We're sending you our wishes for health for yourself, all your loved ones, your communities and the world.

In response to the very real public health challenge of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel all our in-person Summer 2020 events: Summer Solstice Sadhana, International Women's Camp, and Khalsa Youth Camp.

We will be providing full refunds and we ask for your patience with the process given the numbers of registrations we need to refund. Cancelling these events will have a large financial impact on our organization.  We also ask that if you would like to support 3HO financially during this challenging time, you can choose to "pay it forward" and your registration fee will be credited towards Winter Solstice 2020, a future 3HO event, or a donation to help 3HO in this time of financial challenge.

You can process your cancellations here.

We look forward to supporting you online with Kundalini Yoga,

The 3HO Foundation Team

Khalsa Youth Camp is hosted at Guru Ram Das Puri in the piñon- and juniper-clad hills of Northern New Mexico, designed to deepen children’s experience with their inner, as well as outer, Self.

Each day begins with a children’s Sadhana including Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®, meditation, and chanting; followed by a youth-centered Gurdwara; parade marching; and camp karma yoga. A variety of activities fill each week, including yoga and meditation, arts and crafts, martial arts, sports, swimming, outdoor skills, games, field trips, special guest teachers and teachings on healthy, happy, and holy living.
