    1. Aloha – thanks for your interest in visiting ECETI. We are open again the first weekend of May and will start taking online bookings about January 15th. Yes, we do have space for DRY CAMPING for RVs, the cost is $30 per night up to 3 people in a campsite or RV. There is also Elk Meadows RV Park not too far away with full services. http://www.elkmeadowsrvpark.com If you stay off property (not at ECETI) the day pass/SkyWatch only cost in 2017 was $10 per person per day. We are currently reviewing our pricing for 2018 and again registration will be open about January 15th. We look forward to welcoming you & your wife when the time is right. Please note – we have a strict no pet policy due to past situations where a guest was almost bitten and the fact we have our own ranch animals. Blessings, Ashli

  1. Hi Eceti, I am hoping to be able to afford a big trip early next year. At 45 and getting divorced, this is a big time for me, and my lifelong total passion for all things ET space consciousness and so on is overwhelming me to do something about it. As is, I don’t quite know what it is I can do with it and also live off of, but I am considering traveling from here in NZ to Peru to participate in some Ayahuasca ceremonies and then travel up to Eceti to experience your ranch. My question is basically around that -should / could / how do I do that? What would be your initial thoughts on that – and which way around – eceti then ayahuasca or vice versa? Many thanks, Rik

    1. Aloha Rik…we’re not big proponents of medicinal means of expanding consciousness for without the proper shielding and cleansing methods we’ve seen too many people open up to lower level entities. Therefore, our preference would be you come to ECETI before going to Peru if you are determined to do an aya ceremony. At least that way you will have some tools for not taking on everyone else’s stuff and for staying out of or moving quickly through the lower level astral planes. Again, we are not proponents of aya ceremony and at the ranch we have a strict no alcohol no marijuana, no drug policy. We open the first weekend of May 2018 and will be open until mid November 2018. Our calendar will be open for registration early January 2018. Some highlights of the year (in addition to our camping/skywatch weekends) are James Gilliland’s Self Mastery (introductory) workshop the weekend of May 25-27 2018, our annual conference which will be July 4-8, 2018 and James’ Ambassador and Teacher Training Workshop August 31st to September 3 2018. During our workshops we have work/trade opportunities (see this page for example for 2017 worktrade). Hope that helps! Ashli

  2. Would like to stay in a yurt Noveber 9th, 2017. Not clear about what the cost is. Is it $60 per person or each. Would like two beds. We will need direction. Would like to talk to you on the phone. 530 277 5422



    1. Aloha! The room rates are all PER ROOM (or YURT) PER NIGHT up to 3 people in the room. $10 per person per night for more than 3 people. Rate is $60 perr night. When you book you get the directions to the ranch on your reservation confirmation. At this time the Yurts are available on Thursday November 9th sold out on Friday & Saturday. Please add the 2nd person’s name and 2 beds in the “Guest Name” section of your booking. Here’s the link to register I’ve sent an email to Vicky to call you but you may also call us at 509-395-2092 and leave a message and someone from registration will get back to you. Blessings and we look forward to welcoming you to ECETI

    2. Hi Miruh, Yurt costs are per yurt per night, NOT per person (up to three people). When you make your booking you will receive an email containing directions and a gate code. 2 yurts have a queen bed and loft single. 1 yurt has three singles. Hope that helps.

  3. We’re coming from N. of Seattle. Do you know where we might be able to rent or buy some night vision glasses? (since you only have 1 pair to share;-))
    We can’t really see everything in the sky during sky watch without night vision glasses, right?

    1. Aloha….it depends on your eyes – many of the craft are visible with the naked eye depending on your vision. I do not know where you can purchase or buy last minute, I’m sorry. When are you coming?

    1. We don’t do microwave – they are very unhealthy. We provide organic breakfast for purchase during SkyWatch weekends. You can bring a cooler and camp stove for other meals during SkyWatch weekends. Organic Breakfast Lunch and Dinner for purchase during workshop and sustainability weekends – no outside food during workshop/event weekends as we have an exclusive agreement with an organic caterer. When you register you receive the directions on your confirmation email. Blessings, Ashli

    1. Aloha – this weekend we are only open for those registered for the Ambassador Training workshop. If you are not attending the workshop then please come up the weekend of September 14th – 17th which is our next SkyWatch weekend (register here) and there won’t be a charge for your 4 year old. Blessings!

  4. Since the workshop on the first weekend of November has been cancelled we would like to reserve Eagle’s Nest on Friday the 3rd and Saturday the 4th for sky watching.
    Thanks Viana

    1. The workshop the first weekend of November has not been cancelled. Please look at either October 26-29 or November 9-12 SkyWatch Weekends. Blessings

    1. Lisa – the best reference we’ve had for dog sitting is in The Dalles which is about a 40 minute drive each way. It is in a home, not a “kennel”. We’ve gotten great feedback from other guests. Phone number is 541-403-2699 Cindy. Rate is $20 sleepover. Blessings!

    1. We will have ice for our sun tea and water on our by donation beverage station. Ice for coolers is available 2 miles up the road at the gas station or at the country store. Blessings!

  5. Hello, I just watched your ufo clip on facebook, I am a amateur ufo watcher, what equipment are you using to capture these videos. and any advice you could give an amateur on maybe what to buy and what not to invest in, thanks and keep up the good work

  6. Aloha Ashli-
    My friend and I are looking forward to visiting ECETI sacred grounds for the first time. We are outside of Olympia.
    I’ve emailed tis past week -read the FAQ’s x2, looked over all the drop down links. I thought it might be better to ask here as I still don’t have an answer to one tiny question, which will help me to prepare for a tent/trip there in July.
    BEFORE I make reservations, it would be helpful to know (and for other campers too probably), if there are special hot water taps so that my partner and I can make the coffee we will bring with us for the morning. We prefer to juice or eat light most mornings.
    I’ve seen them and used them at RSE (in Yelm) as I’ve camped there for yours. It is helpful to know. I don’t imagine you have a coffee booth do you? Perhaps that is an alternative if there are no hot water taps.
    Thanking you in advance and sending you warm wishes and blessings ♥

    1. Aloha “R” – I did respond to an email you sent that yes, we do have a coffee station (With organic coffee and organic teas,, organic sweeteners and organic half and half and dairy substitutes) by donation in the conference hall that includes a hot water kettle. Blessings, Ashli

    1. Aloha Ananda – it was lovely to talk to you on the phone. We do have handicapped parking and toilets and we have grassy areas and pebbled walkways – not cement. As we chatted about, with your situation we can accommodate you. For others reading this post, please do call us so we can chat about your needs and we will share if our facilities will be gentle for you. Heart Hugs, Ashli
