Holding space is much easier with the right container. The Om Rising Gathering is about honoring all of the magic Northern California has to offer. There are few places more inviting for creating conscious community through movement and music than Cam Navarro. There will be plenty of space to move and plenty of nature to experience. The property creates the feel of true natural retreat without having to travel too far off the beaten path.

Are you offering transportation to the event?
We’re focusing our efforts and resources on creating the best experience possible to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves once they arrive.
For this first year, there is no officially organized group transport being offered. But we’ve created a group on Facebook (join the Facebook group OM Rising : Ride Sharing to/from Camp Navarro) to help reduce our carbon footprint and carpool when possible.
We encourage attendees to make use of the Facebook group (see link above) for setting up rideshares and creating valuable connections with others making the journey.
What is the weather going to be like?
Check the weather in Navarro, CA leading up to the event, and prepare to be both warm at times and also make sure to have warm layers for the early morning and evenings so you are comfortable. The event takes place in October so we can typically expect 70s - 80s during the day and 40s - 60s in the evening.
What should I wear?
Everybody has different needs in order to be comfortable in the redwoods for a couple days at a yoga and music gathering. Layers are key! Events will range from movement-based yoga classes to meditations to dance parties and everything and anything in-between. Mornings and evenings will be a little chilly, but during the day it should be a perfect late summer/early fall temperature. Please come prepared with what you feel you need to make this the most enjoyable experience!
What is the bathroom situation like?
Each ticket comes with access to camping and showers. Some people may opt to upgrade their ticket for a private cabin, teepee tent or Adirondack. Plus EO essential oils is offering some amazing products in the showers!
You are welcome to also find nearby accommodations off-site, but we encourage you to stay at Camp Navarro with us.
What do I need to bring?
Everyone will need the following: a yoga mat (if you plan on practicing with one, for some class you might want to and others not so much!), specific props (if you know you need them, i.e. yoga blocks or strap, your own water bottle, sunscreen, bug repellent, appropriate clothing for hot days, appropriate layers for cool nights (see above), a headlamp or flashlight, and snacks for when you need to eat between meals.
I want to camp! What do I need?
Make sure to bring a tent, a sleeping pad and a sleeping bag, if that’s your style.
