"While I have come to see that there are no places
that are not imbued with sacredness, Vallecitos
is a place that touches the deepest parts of me..."


Experience a sense of deep welcome among others who share the path of dharma, mindfulness and awakening in wild nature.


Collect your heart/mind where the land evokes innate belonging, generosity, and freedom.

Waking up together in the wild

Amidst the high alpine mountains, Vallecitos is a breathtaking wildlife preserve on the traditional territories of the Ute and Jicarilla Apache Peoples (Tusas mountains, New Mexico). Allow yourself to be reabsorbed into nature through Dharma and wisdom practices that serve personal and collective liberation.
