Karma Yoga and Service Support

APPLY

Every participant at Solstice signs up for Karma Yoga as a way to give back for the beautiful experience they receive at Solstice. Karma Yoga is an integral part of Solstice, as each of us creates a shared Solstice experience by contributing through service.

As part of the Karma Yoga Support Team you will help support the needs of the karma yogis and service exchange participants by keeping in touch with area managers to schedule where people might best serve on any given day, helping to track and encourage attendance at Karma Yoga meetings and educating participants about the joy of seva. This team needs people who are inspired by and understand how to share the energy of giving.

You will also be at the Karma Yoga table in the Onsite Check In/Registration Area signing up those who did not register on-line for their karma yoga team. This requires people who are able to remain calm during hectic times and be a patient and engaging personality to educate people about what they will be doing in their Karma Yoga area.   You also will be helping people who register onsite choose a Karma yoga option that suits them. For these reasons, we only accept people who have previously attended a Solstice event.

As Yogi Bhajan said, "We are on this planet to love each other, to serve each other, and to uplift each other. We have come on this Earth to give, not to take. Don’t take pride in taking. Give and you will be given virtues. And that will give you God."

    Set Up and Break Down Crew 

    APPLY - CLOSED

    The Solstice Setup Crew is responsible for setting the intention for a blessed, healing, inspiring experience at Solstice. The team needs strong souls who are comfortable with physical work. General tasks include unpacking storage items, weed whacking, caring for the land, treating compost, painting signs, a degree of skilled carpentry and landscaping work, helping in the kitchen, cleaning and creating the sacred space. It is a good mix of physical, creative, hard, fun, work.

    "Happiness comes out of contentment, and contentment always comes out of service." Yogi Bhajan

    Break down can be energetically taxing and happens very quickly after camp closes. It is important that everyone is a team player and that we know you are committed to serving until breakdown is finished. If you have been on the set up/breakdown crew before and had a hard time with breakdown, or left early because you were too tired to work or cannot commit to the breakdown process for any other reason, we strongly suggest that you apply to another Service Exchange area.

    The commitment to Set up/Break Down crew is difficult and intense but also deeply rewarding. You will create new and close friendships, learn something new about yourself, and your Solstice experience will be unique and fantastic.

    **Important Note** 50% of the work on Set up and Break Down crew happens at the end of Solstice when we must clean up after camp and put away everything we set up. This half of the work we do is easily as difficult, if not more difficult than setting up. But it is equally as important as it sets the stage for a better set up for next year’s program.

    APPLY

    Solstice is a family friendly environment and little people are everywhere. To give the children an experience of their own identity and to support the parents, we have a variety of programs for children, youth and teens. If you have experience working with these groups and are prepared to serve during one or two White Tantric Yoga days, this unique service opportunity is a wonderful option.

    It is the primary intention of Youth Camp to give the children an experience of their soul. To create an environment, a program and a team that values children for all of the right reasons. We’re looking for individuals who are physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually fit - who are able to take care of, not only themselves, but the children who are at Circle F. To do this requires a strong nervous system, a lot of flexibility and some sacrifice. The ability to communicate with parents, fellow team members and children is also essential.

    We prefer applicants who have attended at least one  Solstice Sadhana Celebration, but if you have a lot of experience working with children, please apply.  If you are a parent of a child 3 and under, we ask that you apply your service exchange in the same age group as your child.
