2017 SkyWatch & Camping Weekends


2017 is lining up to be a year of great change.  As important as we know it is to get our calendar up as soon as possible so that our community can make advance travel plans we also stay very aligned with the flow of Creator.  Therefore, understand that ECETI reserves the right to adjust the Calendar based on guidance from Creator and the flow of what is happening in the world.  We highly recommend that anyone traveling from longer distances purchases travel insurance if they have any concerns.  Mahalo.

Registration for Camping and SkyWatch weekends is now open. Registration for event weekends will open on a rolling basis between now and when we open in May.  We will announce updates on event registration openings on the ECETI Enewsletter

Casual Camping or Cabin Rental and SkyWatch Weekends – these are casual weekends where you can arrive as early as Thursday and depart as late as Monday morning.  You can make a reservation to come stay for one or more nights, either camp with your own equipment or rent a room (space available and linen provided) and enjoy evening SkyWatch.  (please click here for description of different accommodation types)

Organic Breakfast are available for advance purchase during these casual weekends.   For lunch and dinner you can either bring your own picnic food or eat locally.  (Note:  We also do SkyWatch during our weekend workshops but those are exclusive for attendees of the Workshops and not open for casual SkyWatch)

When James is in town he hosts SkyWatch Friday & Saturday nights. SkyWatch starts about 30 minutes after sunset.  ECETI Crew host SkyWatch for in-house guests on Thursday & Sunday nights.  When James is out of town other ECETI Crew host the Friday & Saturday SkyWatch. Daytimes are at your leisure to enjoy the land or the local area or to join the activities listed below.

With an advance reservation you can also enjoy SkyWatch without staying at ECETI on Friday and Saturday nights only.  Your SkyWatch only donation also includes attending any of the events listed below on the days you will be SkyWatching (such as movies or meditations).
